Ferrari F12 is Revealed Ahead of Geneva 2012
Twelve-cylinder powerplants have been synonymous with Ferrari since the very beginning. From 1947’s 125 S to the modern 599 GTB Fiorano, the Prancing Horse has made 12 cylinders dance like no other company. Ferrari makes engines glamorous, and the latest V12 rocket is revved for the Geneva motor show.
Ferrari revealed the F12 Berlinetta on Wednesday, and it packs 730 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque from a 6.3-liter engine (6,262 cc). Ferrari is billing this new supercar as the fastest its ever built, and that’s reinforced with nearly breathtaking statistics. It can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds and clocks a top speed of more than 211 mph. That’s a significant jump from the performance specs of the 599, which made 611 hp and is being replaced by the F12 in the company’s lineup.
