2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine – Now, Enough with the carefully orchestrated teaser videos, the spy shots, the leaked images. This is the real deal. This is our first official look at the 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, which will replace the aging 599 GTB Fiorano in Ferrari’s lineup after its debut on the world stage at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
While the F12 Berlinetta’s general profile roughly resembles that of its predecessor, there’s not a single bit of sheetmetal shared between the two cars. Styled by longtime design partner Pininfarina, the F12 Berlinetta is an interesting amalgamation of strong, flowing surfaces and existing design cues.
The new F12 Berlinetta was designed by the Ferrari Styling Center in cooperation with Pininfarina. It is said to be “a perfect balance of uncompromising aerodynamics with harmonious proportions interpreting the typical elements of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars in an original and innovative way.”
The F12 Berlinetta is powered by a V12 engine with an impressive output of 740 HP – an increase of 120 HP over the previous 599 GTB Fiorano. This increase in power also comes with a decrease of fuel consumption, specifically a 30% reduction. With a total weight of just 3362 lbs, the F12berlinetta will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, while top speed goes up to over 211 mph. Ferrari has also announced that the new model lapped the Fiorano circuit in 1:23, faster than any other Ferrari road car.

2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Interior :
2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Interior. – The first details of the Ferrari F12berlinetta didn’t reveal too much about the interior, but let’s face it, the interior always comes second to power in a sports car. Nonetheless, it will feature the most advanced technology with sophisticated, handcrafted detailing. The dashboard features new carbon fiber and aluminum air vents clearly inspired by the aeronautic field. The cockpit was designed around the driver with all the major commands within immediate reach to guarantee maximum ergonomics for the most involving driving experience.
The F12’s dashboard largely resembles that of the FF, but there is one significant difference: It no longer packs a large, clunky-looking navigation unit into the center stack. Instead, the F12 displays all infotainment-related screens through the digital Human Machine Interface gauge cluster, controlled by a small bank of switches located to the right of the steering column.
2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Exterior :
2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Exterior. – Since the F12berlinetta was designed to be the most powerful high performance Ferrari road car ever created, the company’s traditional transaxle layout had to be modified. The wheelbase was shortened and the engine, dashboard, and seats were situated lower in the chassis. The layout of the rear suspension and gearbox was also modified, allowing for a decrease in rear volume as well. Ferrari says that the “overall result is a very compact car with a lower centre of gravity that is further back in the chassis, and a level of aerodynamic efficiency that sets new standards.”
The Ferrari’s chassis also had to be revised in order to withstand the added power of the new sports car. Scaglietti took on that role, and designed an all-new spaceframe chassis and bodyshell using 12 different kinds of alloys. These alloys were joined together using new techniques that allowed for a 20% increase in structural rigidity and a reduction of weight, down to 1525 kg/3362 lbs (70 kg/154 lbs less than the previous V12 Coupé).
2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Engine :
2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Engine. – Although Ferrari has previously dabbled with hybrid systems and forced induction, the F12 Berlinetta sticks to a time-tested tradition: a big, normally aspirated 12-cylinder engine. The new Ferrari F12berlinetta is powered by a 6262cc 65° V12 engine that delivers a total of 740 HP at 8500 rpm and 508 lb-ft of torque at 6000 rpm. Despite the 120 HP increase, the fuel consumption has been reduced by 30%. The engine is mated to the F1 dual-clutch transmission and has a specific output of 118 HP/l.
The new F12 uses the same basic 6.3-liter V-12 as the FF wagon, but the engine appears to be much more powerful in F12 guise. According to Ferrari, it provides the FF with an incredible 730 horsepower at 8000 rpm, along with 508 lb-ft of torque at 6000 rpm. Early claims of the F12 Berlinetta becoming the most powerful (road-legal) Ferrari appear to be accurate. Not only does this mean the F12 Berlinetta eclipses the 599 GTB (600 hp/448 lb-ft) and the 599 GTO (660 hp/494 lb-ft), it also surpasses the original 599xx racer (720 hp/506 lb-ft) and comes close to the track-focused 599xx Evoluzione (750 hp/516 lb-ft).
