Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - Ferrari's new 599

Ferrari has announced the replacement to the 599 GTB Fiorano. It is called the F12 berlinetta and employs a new V12 engine to make it the fastest Ferrari road car ever - as well as one of the company's 'greenest' models thanks to improvements in engine, aerodynamics, tyres and weight technology.

Like the 599, the F12 is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-seat GT supercar. It will be unveiled at next week's Geneva Motor Show.

The F12's 6.2-litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine generates 552kW at 8,500rpm and 936Nm of torque, 80% of which comes in at 2,500rpm and reaches a peak at 6,000rpm.

The sprint from 0-100km/h takes 3.1 seconds with a top speed of over 340km/h possible. As a mark of the engine's flexibility, the F12 will scream to 200km/h in 8.5 seconds and has completed a lap of Ferrari's Fiorano test track in 1:23, faster than any other Ferrari road car.
