The F12 Berlinetta at one point represented the pinnacle of Ferrari high-performance engineering, being the fastest supercar ever produced by the Italian manufacturer. Complementing this scorching pace is a modern aesthetic that draws inspiration from Ferraris of the past, even whilst it retains the unique appeal of ‘prancing horse’ models.
The car’s carefully considered proportions give it an aerodynamic shape that aids performance, and this obsessive focus on low drag results in sweeping curves and sharp creases across the lightweight aluminium bodywork. The windscreen slopes back at a shallow angle, joining a bonnet that seems to go on forever with a low roofline. The headlamps merge with exaggerated wheel arches, while a prominent front grille sits above angular bumper skirts.
Inside, a balance of comfort and motorsport character has been struck to make the F12 Berlinetta a pleasure both on the road and the track.
The simple cabin has been optimised for space, and it features carefully contoured sports seats that help you resist some of the aerodynamic forces placed upon you when travelling at high speeds. Stitched leather cover on the seats, steering wheel and dashboard add a touch of luxury symbolic of the brand’s status within the industry.
The superb driving experience owes much to the technology that Ferrari has developed both under the bonnet and in the cabin. The flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel forms part of what the brand calls its Human Machine Interface, and it places key functions at your fingertips - just as in the brand’s Formula 1 cars. Gears, headlights, windscreen wipers and even ignition can all be commanded from the wheel, and key information is seen on the main binnacle behind this.
The binnacle tells you all you need to know about the powertrain’s output, such as evidence of the 0-60mph sprint time of around three seconds. This magnificent figure is thanks to the F12 Berlinetta’s 730bhp and 690Nm of torque, which is managed carefully by F1-Trac traction control.
The system isn’t the only technology included to aid you when getting the most from your model, as high-performance Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) also features alongside Electronic Stability Control (ESC). A test drive of the F12 Berlinetta will confirm its reputation as one of the most thrilling supercars available in 2017, and you can arrange a sample of its performance with JCT600 in Leeds.
