“The fastest Ferrari ever built” comes with a new high-performance 12-cylinder — an exceptional new engine and a ‘proper’ mid-front-engined format.
The F12berlinetta sports a 6262cc 65° V12 delivering up to 740HP and 690Nm of torque, 80 per cent of which is available from just 2,500rpm. Ferrari promises us “an unrelenting surge of acceleration all the way to the 8,700rpm limit.”
The engine is mated to the F1 dual-clutch transmission, with closer gear ratios developed specifically for this car’s performance. The result is a 0-62mph time of just 3.1 seconds, with the all-important lap of the Fiorano circuit completed in 1min 23sec – faster than any other Ferrari road car.
