A drag race between the past and the present is best describing the video posted below.
Did you ever wonder which is faster between a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and a Ferrari 599 GTO? Well, on paper we do know the results, but what if things would look a little different in the real world? Well, we’re just messing with your brain but the truth is that the older supercar is not way behind its predecessor, or at least this is what this video is proving.
The Ferrari 599 was produced between 2006 and 2012 and it was offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The 599 GTO was the road-going version of the 599XX and at its time, the carmaker was stating that this was the fastest vehicle produced in Maranello. It had a 661 HP (493 kW) and 620 Nm (460 lb-ft) of torque 6.0L V12 engine under its hood, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3s and a top speed of 335 km/h. The F12 Berlinetta has been shown back in 2012 and it is also offered in the same configuration. Its engine has been replaced compared to its predecessor and the new one is using a 6.3L V12, with 730 HP (544 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. This was also the fastest Ferrari of its time, until the LaFerrari was introduced. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint took 3.1s and top speed stood at 365 km/h (227 mph).
