Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is nothing less than Chevrolet Corvette from Italy: a similar design, the same goal, but - with one important reason - a high degree of price tag labels design. Ferrari would probably prefer to be described simply as a replacement for the 599th However, the F12 Berlinetta has further developed, creates powerful version of the classic format of the Ferrari V12 car rear-drive sport for the first time.

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
The engine is a 6.3-liter V12, introduced last year in the FF hit a four-seater with four-wheel drive; it is harder to deliver more energy. The maximum results are impressive: 731 hp at 8,250 rpm and 509 Nm of torque at 6,000 revolutions per minute. That's 60 hp more than the 6.0-liter V12 from the 599 GTO.
The F12 Berlinetta has designed a rear-mounted seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, to provide power and torque without the other side of the 599 single-clutch six-speed transaxle. The seven-speed unit is a development of a component added to the FF. Reasons has been changed by the duty F12 Berlinetta.


With an aluminum frame fixed in aluminum panels, the F12 Berlinetta 150 pounds lighter than the 599th Is also more compact. Despite more than two inches shorter and narrower in the vicinity of an inch than the 599, the F12 Berlinetta has plenty of room for two passengers in height and a practical amount of luggage. Carefully cut is a drag coefficient of a hair under 0.30.
Curved canals, cut in front of the hood emblem fender "aero bridge" functionality. With the back "blown wing", the pressure of air in the vicinity of the vehicle fits queue by connecting the rear wheel mesh on both sides of the luggage compartment cover Liftback, creates the bridge aerodynamic stabilization of the high speed, the aerodynamic load.


This is a goal that seemed impossible to reconcile, but with more features - like the latest generation of magnetically variable damping - is more a more powerful processor and better software for its wide range of electronic controls, who believe they have not nearby.

How do you feel to drive  Ferrari F12 Berlinetta?

Just great. It says something profound that 731 hp feels about right in the F12 Berlinetta. The throttle response is immediate reward to cry all the way from idle to 8700 rpm court. But the music begins to ring V12 only 3,000 revolutions per minute, and there is a significant increase in speed and intensity at 6000 revolutions per minute. It is simply an excellent part of a very harmonious.


Apart from a few idiots at low speeds and small throttle openings, the double-clutch transmission is nearly perfect. In the career mode is selected on the wheel manettino, the changes immediately. Be changed no matter whether the driver the automatic mode of transmission or the use of stylish aluminum pallets chooses to change it manually, there is no noticeable pause in acceleration than the aisles.

Disc brakes with standard carbon-ceramic Brembo brake calipers and massive, has the F12 more braking force equal to the motor. And thanks in part to the car - the division of the front / rear is 46/54 percent, the maximum stability when braking very well. Grabbiness low speed brakes Ferrari, it is difficult to modulate the driving precision of the city, but it's his only flaw.
The steering is direct F12 Berlinetta with only two turns from lock to stop and is above criticism. It creates an almost supernatural close connection between the finger of the driver and the contact surface of the tire. No delay, apparently zero between the entrance and car-wheel-reaction and a steady stream of feedback.
With front handle which is not of this world, electronics concerned with rear wheel drive and ultra-high inherent chassis balance, which limits the range F12 Berlinetta are very affordable.
There is also a car that I did not complain when it comes to the real world. Ride comfort for a car of this wonderful show. Noise levels are reasonable, the lodge is spacious, nicely decorated, and there is 11.3 cubic meters of storage space under the tailgate.

You want it?

Of course I do. The F12 Berlinetta practically defined as "desirable". This traditional street car Ferrari Formula is updated in many ways, and his predecessor, seems a bit slow and unsophisticated. The F12 Berlinetta is due to start in the U.S. next spring, five months or more after European deliveries begin. Was based on the higher price than-599 announced for Europe, will cost probably $ 300 000.
