Ferrari has released a new video in which Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel has taken the F12 Berlinetta out for a spin.
If you leave the impressive LaFerrari away from the equation, then the F12 Berlinetta is definitely what you need if you’re a fan of the prancing horse and despite having a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, unlike its main competitors, the Lamborghini Aventador and the McLaren 675LT, it’s one hot ride to own. If you don’t believe us, check out Sebastian Vettel take one for a fast lap in the video posted below.
Ferrari has been offering the F12 Berlinetta since 2012, when it was introduced, in its final production form, during the Geneva Motor Show. The supercar came as a replacement for the 599 GTB and it is currently being put together in Maranello, Italy. The model has been designed by Flavio Manzoni, from Ferrari’s Styling Center, in collaboration with Pininfarina, and it is being offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a front mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The exotic vehicle is 4,618 mm long, 1,942 mm wide and 1,273 mm tall, with a 2,720 mm wheelbase and a 1,525 kg curb weight.
Under its hood we can find the 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which is also used on the FF and also on the hotter LaFerrari. On the F12 Berlinetta, the unit is rated at 730 HP (544 kW) at 8,250 rpm, and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. These are being sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed semi-automatic dual-clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the supercar needs 3.1 seconds and it can go up to a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mph).
