Ferrari is planning to introduce a hardcore version of the current F12 Berlinetta, which is expected to be unveiled soon.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta used to be the fastest and most powerful road-legal supercar to come out of the Maranello facility, until the LaFerrari has been unveiled a couple of years ago, but that doesn’t mean that the exotic front mid-engined and rear-wheel drive model is not hot anymore. In fact, it will become even hotter as a more hardcore version of it is planned. According to Autocar, the model in question will be known as the F12 Speciale and it will be a regular production model, sold alongside the standard F12.
Our source is also saying that the supercar will go on a diet and it will lose an impressive 200 kg (441 lbs) from its total weight. Besides the weight loss, the F12 Speciale will also gain a new aero package which, besides helping it differentiate, it will also make it more aerodynamic. Expect a power bump too as the total output is believed to go up to 760 HP (567 kW). All of these changes will help it accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than three seconds and the top speed will also increase. Keep in mind that the current F12 Berlinetta has a 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine under its hood, rated at 730 HP (544 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft), allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph).
