The very first recorded Ferrari F12 Berlinetta crash came just a few months after the newest supercar in the company’s lineup was launched.
The incident in question is minor and the Italian supercar has rear ended an SUV with low consequences on its body but, even so, this is still the very first recorded Ferrari F12 Berlinetta crash in history. The unfortunate incident took place in one of China’s biggest cities, Guangzhou, and, just like we said above, the damage looks to be minimal and repairable, but also costly. The supercar in question isn’t wearing a license plate which probably means that this is a dealership demonstrator model and probably it wasn’t insured.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine which is developing a total output of 730 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 509 lb-ft, out of which 80 percent is available from only 2,500 rpm. Ferrari is saying that the F12 Berlinetta can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and the 0 to 200 km/h acceleration takes 8.5 seconds. The model can reach a top speed of 340 km/h. Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has been officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
