THE FERRARI F12 BERLINETTA

THE MOSTPOWERFULSERIES-PRODUCTION FERRARI


The F12berlinetta is not only the most aerodynamic series-production Ferrari, it is also the most powerful, highest performance front-engine Ferrari in the range.


The F12berlinetta delivers unparalleled performance. Its direct-injection, 6,262cc normally-aspirated V12 engine introduces a new generation of innovations, winning awards, building passion.

Max power output of 731 hp - The F12berlinetta's V12 engine is just as much art for eyes as it is power source for the enthusiast. With a maximum power output of 731 hp at 8250 rpm, it also generates maximum torque of 508 lb-ft, yet 80 percent of that torque is available at a mere 2500 rpm. Outstanding response and strong acceleration rushes through anywhere and everywhere. Moreover, the V12's high specific power output of 116 hp per liter is a record for an engine of this type. Impressive by any standards, these stats make Ferrari's F12berlinetta the benchmark.

The F12berlinetta also uses innovative materials and technologies new to the automotive industry. A spaceframe chassis and bodyshell employs more than twelve alloys to shave off 154 pounds when compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano.

BETWEEN SPORTINESS & EFFICIENCY

The F12berlinetta’s design strikes the perfect balance between maximum aerodynamic efficiency and the elegant proportions typical of front-engine V12 Ferraris. Designers and engineers collaborated to sculpt beautiful surfaces that seamlessly incorporate innovative aerodynamic function, rather than overlaying different appendages. The result is an innovative system of channeling air flow that makes the F12berlinetta completely original. It's a true marriage of technology and aesthetics and a requisite achievement for all Ferraris in which form and function are intertwined.

The F12berlinetta's low coupé lines and powerfully sculpted flanks curve and dip to channel airflow off the hood. Two aerodynamic tunnels between the front wheel arches and the A-pillars called "air bridges" direct airflow off the hood to the F12berlinetta's side surfaces. The air then flows into scoops in the flanks.

Interior

Cutting-edge look:understated, sophisticated

The F12berlinetta's interior provides both a sporty driving position and maximum comfort. Advanced technologies, sophisticated design and beautiful detailing perfectly illustrate Ferrari's dedication to the craft.

The logical, ergonomic layout of vital functions within the cockpit mark the interior design's strongest characteristic. The essential architecture embraces and enhances the driver interface and displaying all pertinent information directly ahead. The tunnel console is both light and functional while the central bridge - a signature interior element - incorporates Ferrari's famed F1 gearbox, warning lights and switchgear.

Aerodynamics

F12BERLINETTA SHAPE: CREATED BY BOTH HUMAN HAND AND BY WIND TUNNEL SCIENCE

OVER 250 HOURS IN WIND TUNNEL RESEARCH AND COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS MODELING NEVER LOOKED AS BEAUTIFUL

The aerodynamic development of the F12berlinetta ran hand-in-hand with styling in the studio by Ferrari designers. The result is the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari ever, and a model of aggressive beauty that furthers exotic design. Downforce increases by 7 percent to 271 pounds at 124 mph (over the 599 GTB Fiorano), while drag is significantly reduced to a Cd of just 0.299.

A series of innovative features enables the F12berlinetta’s exceptional aerodynamic efficiency. The Aero Bridge uses the hood to create downforce. Air passing over the car is drawn into special air intakes in the rear fenders, altering pressure in the wheel wells before exiting through the rear diffuser.

Performance

SPECIFIC POWER OUTPUT RAISES THE RECORD FOR NATURALLY-ASPIRATED FERRARI ENGINES TO 116 HP PER LITER

The F12berlinetta's maximum power of 731 hp at an operatic 8250 rpm is also accompanied by remarkable flexibility. A healthy 80 percent of the maximum 508 lb-ft of torque is available from merely 2500 rpm. This powerplant also records a specific output - horsepower relative to displacement - of 116 hp per liter. Naturally, the net effect is massive maximum acceleration at low speeds right up to the 8700 rpm redline.

Just like Ferrari's F1 engines, this production V12 operates with very low friction and inertia to ensure that revs climb rapidly. To heighten this quick-revving character, Ferrari concentrated on a number of areas including oil control, valvetrain drag and the compression ratio which rises to 13.5:1. An innovative ignition system fires three successive sparks of different intensity and duration over the time that a normal ignition system fires once. This helps reduce fuel consumption by 30 percent compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano, despite the increase in power and torque.
