The F12berlinetta, in fact, is the most powerful and high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched thanks to its incredibly efficient 12-cylinder engine. The wheelbase has been shortened and the engine, dashboard and seats have been lowered in the chassis, while the new layout of the rear suspension and gearbox enabled Ferrari’s engineers to make the rear volume of the car smaller.

 

Its maximum power output is 740 horsepower and 690 lb/ft of torque, which 80% is available at 2,500 rpm. The engine is mated to Ferrari’s F1 dual-clutch transmission, which has closer gear ratios developed specifically for this car’s performance. Active Brake Cooling, a system that opens guide vanes to the brake cooling ducts only at high operating temperatures, reduces drag. The result is that the new Prancing Horse 12-cylinder accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds! Good morning.
