Ferrari F12berlinetta - Final sound check on Fiorano track [HD video]
The new F12berlinetta has an enormous naturally aspirated 65-degree V12 with a displacement of 6.3 liter. The hi-revving monster produces 740PS (544 kW) and 690Nm (509 lb-ft), and some nice sound, too. The manufacturer has released a video with final testing on Fiorano racetrack showing the brutal nature of the new performance sports car.
The F12berlinetta is the most powerful Ferrari in the world and with its power-to-weight of 2.1 kg/PS promises to be fastest, too. However, in terms of fuel economy, the manufacturer claims that it is whopping 30% more economical than its predecessor 599 GTB.
The performance – 0-100 km/h – 3.1 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 8.5 seconds. A lap around Fiorano is done in just 1 minute and 23 seconds. Benchmark performance and maximum driving involvement are guaranteed by immediate turn-in, with smaller steering wheel angles, and increased cornering speed. The result is 20% increase in structural rigidity and a total weight of 1525 kg, which is 70 kg less than GTB. The balance between axles is 46:54 – front:rear.
The downforce has been boosted by 76% (123 kg at 200 km/h) while drag has been significantly reduced – the Cd is just 0.299.
Everything in F12berlinetta screams: "SPORT!" and you can check why in the video below. Enjoy.
