The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was Ferrari’s replacement for the 599 GTB and the company has thrown everything at it to ensure it’s vastly quicker than its seminal predecessor, but also that it’s more enjoyable at low speeds. The F12 claims to be both GT and supercar, mixing front-engined packaging and civility with exotic, F1-inspired dynamic ability. The headlines are that’s it’s considerably smaller (50mm shorter, 60mm lower, 20mm narrower and with a 20mm shorter wheelbase), 70kg lighter at 1525kg (dry), produces more downforce and has a much lower centre-of-gravity. The V12 is a true work of art - similar in size to the Ferrari FF's engine but significantly re-engineered to produce more power, rev higher and ensure much quicker throttle response. It produces an unbelievable 740 hp at 8250rpm (it revs to 8700rpm) and 509lb ft at 6000rpm. All that mumbo is transmitted to the 315-section rear tyres via a 7-speed dual clutch transaxle and Ferrari’s E-Diff.
The results are startling: 0-100 km/h in 2.9-seconds and a top speed of over 340 km/h. Those acceleration figures put it ahead of a McLaren F1. Around Fiorano it’s faster than an Enzo or even the ultra-extreme 599 GTO. Of course there’s so much more. The F12 has Ferrari’s adaptive magnetorheological dampers (SCM-E), improved carbon-ceramic brakes and, as ever, the relentless evolution of the many traction and stability systems sees huge gains in control and speed. Then there’s the famous ‘aero-bridge’ – ducts set into the front wings – which reduces drag and improves downforce, plus active brake cooling ducts that only open when the discs are getting really hot, to reduce drag. The list of technical highlights is almost endless. Ferrari has retained an aluminium chassis for the F12 but new materials increase stiffness and reduce weight.
The aim was to create a car with mid-engined agility (and traction) but in a more usable package.
The car for sale here is a German issued car, although it has lived the majority of its life in the warm and dry climate in Lebanon. The car has never been track raced and is in immaculate condition on its original tires. It is clear that this F12 has been very well taken care of and looks and drives like a brand new F12. It is very nicely optioned in the rare color of Gaillo (yellow) with black interior and yellow sticthing. Very importantly it has the outstanding Carbon Racing Sets in size L. There is full service history with Ferrari and 1 yr remaining of the Ferrari Service Agreement. The car has just been inspected and serviced with Ferrari and is sold with 1 yr Ferrari New Power Warranty.
