The most powerful Ferrari ever, F12 Berlinetta is launched - Videos & Images



Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo finally unveils the most powerful Ferrari, F12 Berlinetta ever.  The new F12berlinetta (not called 620 GT as was previously thought) is the fastest and most powerful road car that Ferrari has ever created.

Billed as the fastest and most powerful regular production Ferrari in history, the F12berlinetta sports a 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine that produces 730HP (740PS), which translates to a specific output of 116HP per liter. It also delivers a peak torque of 690Nm or 508.9 lb-ft, 80 percent of which is available at just 2,500 rpm, while it can rev up to 8,700 rpm.

Like the 599 GTB Fiorano which it replaces, the F12's undoubted USP is that thumping great V12. A reworked version of the unit that first appeared in the FF, it shares the same 6262cc capacity and 65 degree configuration, but its power output is increased by approximately 80bhp to just over 730bhp (740CV), and it produces 509 torques. In other words, the F12 is the most powerful road-going Ferrari ever. Factor in a dry weight of 1525kg and you can imagine what sort of performance this thing delivers: 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds, 0-124mph in 8.5, and a top speed of 211mph. So, quite fast, then. Fast enough, in fact, to blitz Ferrari's Fiorano test track in 1min 23 seconds, a time that outpoints even the Enzo supercar to make this the quickest Ferrari road car to lap the famous circuit

Measuring 4,618mm long, 1,942mm wide and 1,273mm tall, the new top Ferrari is 47mm shorter, 19mm narrower and 63mm lower than the model it replaces, while the Italian company said it rides on a shorter wheelbase, without announcing the precise figure.

With reference to the interiors, Ferrari says it has optimized the cabin to ensure maximum usability of the interior space with additional luggage capacity behind the seats.
