New 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Review in Ganeva 2012

At the Geneva Motor Show 2012 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta celebrating the premiere. With 740 horsepower, Ferarri F12 is the successor of the 599 GTB, the largest series to date athletes from Maranello. F12 is the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta 599th But with 740 horsepower of a 6262 cubic centimeter V12, he will arrange the balance of power in the new super athletes. Visually, the future top-Ferrari relies on less dramatic forms such as a Lamborghini Aventador wants to make, especially the Asian and American tastes. Technically, however, it shows no restraint. With 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque (at 2500 rpm for 80 percent of it) breaks the hitherto most powerful production Ferrari from the 100-km/h-Sprint in 3.1 seconds, top speed of 200 it reached in 8.5 seconds, only above 340 km / h it in 1525-pound aluminum-carbon-racing at the end.

Tours to 8700 revs, F1 dual-clutch transmissions, transaxles (front engine, rear drive and gear) and rear-heavy weight distribution (54 percent rear) to provide a compelling driving experience. With 15 l/100 km would then be hardly feasible. This is the collaboration with Coupe subscribed thanks to shorter wheelbase, new rear suspension architecture, improved adaptive (automatically adjusts the damping force) all can do better than its predecessor.

 

For this addition to 70 pounds short weight also speak the more compact dimensions. Throughout the F12 Berlinetta shrinks slightly, now measures 4.62 meters in length, 1.94 meters wide to make the roof carries and only 1.27 meters above the flat asphalt. Beginning of 2013 we expect the F12 on the street, prices are still missing. Inconspicuous but probably will not.
