Test drive and video review of the all new Ferrari super car F12 Berlinetta
The exterior of the is a real art work. Plenty of interesting design curves can be found on the aluminium/carbon-fiber vehicle.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is powered by a powerful 6.3 liter V12 engine producing the staggering 730bhp and you can't even imagine what kind of acceleration and performance figures this car will do (0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 8.5 seconds and 340 km/h max speed). The gearbox is 7-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic. The F12 Berlinetta is fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

The makes use of aerodynamic techniques based on Ferrari's 599XX and Formula One programmes, developed with wind tunnel and CFD testing. A notable feature is the Aero Bridge, an air channel running from the bonnet, through the flanks and along the sides of the vehicle, creating an effect that increases downforce. Another feature is Active Brake Cooling ducts, which open to direct cooling air only when the brakes are hot, keeping them closed at other times to reduce aerodynamic drag. The F12 berlinetta produces 123 kg (270 lb) of downforce at 200 km/h (120 mph) – an increase of 76% over the 599 GTB – and has a drag coefficient of 0.299.
