Ferrari doesn't need to market its products much. Its reputation is intact as the world's most respected sports car. Unless, of course, the Italian carmaker really has something boast about — like the fastest car it has ever built.
And so it is. The F12berlinetta, the replacement coupe for the 599 GTB, will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and 0-100 mph in 8.5 seconds. The new mid-engined V12 coupé has 730 horsepower and weighs 3,472 pounds, about 150 pounds less the the Ferrari 599.
The F12berlinetta also uses 30 percent less fuel than the 599.
Here are the full technical specifications of the F12berlinetta:
Engine – 6262cc V12; Maximum power output – 740 CV at 8500 rpm; Maximum torque – 690 Nm at 6000 rpm; Length – 4618 mm; Width – 1942 mm; Height – 1273 mm; Dry weight – 1525 km; Weight distribution – 46% front, 54% rear; Weight-power ratio – 2.1 kg/CV; Speed – 0-100 km/h 3.1 seconds; 0-200 km/h 8.5 seconds; Fuel consumption – 15l/100 km, Emissions – CO2 350 g/km
