New Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Debuts

When a new Ferrari debuts, it’s an event. When a truly breathtaking one debuts, it’s world changing. No other car company creates the same response as a new Ferrari, and that continues with the new F12 Berlinetta’s launch. First, there are the stunningly gorgeous looks. Even their new grille design that seems so awkward on the FF, blends seamlessly on the new F12. In a world gone retro looking for new design ideas, Ferrari manages to combine the natural beauty of the past, with modern design cues.

And of course, a conversation about Ferrari’s always includes how fast it will go. In this case, power will be coming from a 740hp, naturally-aspirated V-12. No Turbos that go whoosh, or superchargers that whine, this power is all natural. In fact, this is the fastest Ferrari around Ferrari’s test track. Faster than an Enzo, faster than the new 458, and in a car that is not meant for all out speed but for long distance trips. With both devastating speed and cross country comfort, the new F12 is the automotive equivalent of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile.

Knee-weakening looks, and devastating performance nearly wipes memories of the F12’s predecessor the 599 nearly off the map. I thought the 599 would be the last time we saw a grand touring Ferrari that was both classically beautiful, traditionally powered Ferrari Grand Tourer. Thankfully, I was very, very wrong. Long live the new F12 Berlinetta.
