Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Tears Up The Track: Video

 
Follow Viknesh

Following its reveal at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari’s stunning F12 Berlinetta has been spotted undergoing further testing at the automaker’s Fiorano test track in Italy.

The V-12 supercar can be seen in this video being driven quite hard, with its driver even executing a drift as he comes around a corner at one point.

The video, captured by Marchettino, also features the F12 being driven near its limits, revealing the car’s power and fantastic sound at full throttle.

Developed from scratch, the F12 is currently the fastest and most powerful road going car in Ferrari’s history, though we suspect it won’t be long given that the successor for the Enzo supercar is due out later this year.

Packing a new-generation 6.3-liter V-12 engine, it develops a peak output of 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. The car also comes with a seven-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission, magnetorheological adjustable suspension, an electronic differential, and F1-Trac stability and traction control.

The end result of all those performance specs is a 0-60 mph time of just 3.1 seconds, a top speed of 211 mph, and a lap of Fiorano of just 1:23. However, numbers alone can’t encapsulate all that the F12 Berlinetta has to offer but this video does help remedy the situation somewhat.

  1. I have a couple of problems with this car:
    The side flanking is a big time fail. Totally out of proportion and "dumpy" looking- I don't care what a wind tunnel says.

    The paddle shifter is fine I guess, but I'm not impressed with the sound the car makes as it's approaching turns. Not exotic sounding at all. Stupid sounding, in fact.

    This should be replaced with an instant engagement air shifter and a slipper clutch. I would rather listen to the sonic crack of an air shifter than something that sounds like it has an upper respiratory infection.
