Geneva: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta unveiled image

The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently presented the new F12 Berlinetta, the successor of the 599 GTB, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

After starting its life like a rumor and with Ferrari’s officials constantly denying its development, the successor to the 599 GTB is finally here, and rather than the 620 GT, the new supercar is named the F12 Berlinetta. According to the Maranello based automaker, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the fastest roar-going model in the company’s history, and that is possible thanks to the massive V12 engine which made its appearance just when large units are harder to find than aging signs on a young woman’s face.

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is powered by a 6.2 liter V12 engine which is developing a total output of 730 BHP and it has 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to a dual-clutch transmission which allows the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, while the 0 to 200 km/h acceleration (124 mph) is done in 8.5 seconds. The top speed of the 1,525 kg (3,362 lb) Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is over 340 km/h (211 mph) and the model can achieve 15 l/100 km in fuel efficiency (18.8 mpg UK and 15.7 mpg US), while emitting 350 g/km of CO2.
