Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

In a world where car manufacturers are being forced to think greener and make smaleer engines. Most car manufacturers did what was asked of them, but nanaged to squeeze everything out those small blocks.Your top tier producers however throw caution to the wind and keep things heavy. Ferrari wasn't going to let Lambo run riot with it's V12 Aventador, so naturally their response was to produce their most powerful car yet to date.

Ferrari has finally revealed first images and details of their 599 successor officially named the F12 Berlinetta. Featuring a 6.2-liter (6262cc) 65 degree naturally-aspirated V12 engine delivering 740 HP (544 kW / 730 bhp), which translates to a specific output of 118 HP/liter, the Berlinetta has been described as “the most powerful and high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched.” For performance, the monster of the road accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.5 seconds. Amongst the other new amenities is the F1 dual-clutch unit, Rosso Berlinetta three-stage finish, and an all-new aluminum spaceframe chassis and bodyshell. The result is a a very compact car with a lower center of gravity that is further back in the chassis. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta officially makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.
