The 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta has a quiet, yet aggressive sound when it’s accelerating, but don’t let that softer voice full you, there are 730 horses chomping at the bit to push this new Ferrari model across, well, anywhere it wants to go. Those horses play through a naturally aspirated V12 along with 509 pound feet of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds, that’s enough to leave your whole head behind on the roadway. Critics are saying they were able to push it to 2.8 seconds from a standstill to 60, but really, who is going to be able to do that on a normal driving basis? It will reach a comfortable top speed of 2011 miles per hour, not that you would be able to reach that on your local highways and byways either without risking your Driver’s License anyway. But, for those who love speed, it’s good to know that this Ferrari is a whole 2.5 seconds quicker to reaching 125 miles per hour than the 599 GTB Fiorano model.
Take away the ultimate speed, and you can admire the 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta swag as it sits on four Michelins, Bridgestones or winter Pirellis depending on your preference. It has innovative “aero bridges” that look hot but are functional. These are situated at the base of the windscreen pillar and chin spoiler vents and designed to cool the front brakes. They improve the aerodynamic efficiency and downforce by 98% over the 599 model that gives the power an amazing feel of stability.
Something interesting to note is that while the 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta has so much additional power, it actually has a 30% fuel efficiency improvement over the last model. This is due to the all aluminum design along with a few other factors. Also, it is less expensive with a starting price of about $310,000.
