Four times Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel has driven a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta with 350 km/h on a public road, in Abu Dhabi.
Formula 1 drivers keen to take fast laps around famous tracks in impressive supercars but every once in a while, they tend to go out of their bubble and drive the powerful vehicles on public roads, to extreme top speeds. This is the case of Sebastien Vettel, who has had a go in a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta recently, in Abu Dhabi, taking the Italian supercar up to 350 km/h (219 mph). The video was shot by German journalist Matthias Malmedie, Vettel’s close friend.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the successor of the 599. The model has been officially presented to the public a couple of years ago, during the Geneva Motor Show, and it packs a 6.3 liter V12 engine. The total output produced by the nit stands at 730 HP and the peak torque is 509 lb-ft. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h the supercar needs just 8.5 seconds. Top speed stands at 350 km/h (219 mph).
