The upcoming Ferrari F12 Speciale – Ferrari’s hardcore version of the F12 Berlinetta has just been photographed at Maranello without any type of camouflage – and it looks gorgeous.
The F12 Speciale – scheduled to be unveiled for the first time during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show along with the 488 Spider – is expected to have aggressive aerodynamics and almost 200 kg less (440 pounds) to about 1,430 kg (3,152 lbs) if is to believe what Autocar has reported in the past – mostly because of the Perspex glass materials, 10-spoke lightweight wheels, and lightened body panels. However, minus 200 kg in our opinion is overly optimistic.
Looking at the picture, outside the car comes with carbon fiber applications on the front fenders and side skirts, while on the back, the rear fenders have triple vents to cool down the V12 engine.
The engine, a 6.2 liter V12 will deliver 760 hp in total – 30 hp more than the standard F12 Berlinetta – so all in all it is expected to have a power to weight ratio of 531hp per ton. That’s similar to what we have today in the Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar – and the closest competitor from Lamborghini, the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce has a power to weight ratio of 485hp per ton. And by the way – this one won’t be turbocharged.
0 to 100 should be under 3 seconds – we believe somewhere at 2.8 seconds.
Price? No official information yet – but is expected to cost about $400-450k.
