F12 Berlinetta.....

The new Ferrari which was introduce at the Geneva 2012 car show, is said to replace the 2007-2012 Ferrari 599 model. 

This new F12 as reported by Ferrari to be far more better that the 599 model, the F12 is a front-mid engine, rear wheel drive Grand tourer. With 30% more improvement from the 599 series, the Ferrari F12 far more efficient as well as powerful. In order to reduced fuel consumption when idling the F12 engine management system is fitted with Ferrari's HELE start-stop system

The Chassis designed has also been improved, and is made up of 12 different aluminum alloy thus further improved it rigidity, while at the same time reduced its total weight by 70kg. The F12berlinetta uses Ferrari's third generation CCM3 carbon ceramic disc brakes with ABS.

F12 Berlinetta transmits power through a 7-speed dual-clutch automated semi-automatic gearbox operated by the driver using 'paddles' behind the steering wheel. Compared to similar models, the F12berlinetta uses shortened gear ratios to match the power of the engine.

To further increased downforce, F12 Berlinetta has an Aero Bridge feature where an air channel running from the bonnet, through the flanks and along the sides of the vehicle, thus producing better downforce.

This is the best part, according to Ferrari reports, the F12berlinetta is capable of lapping the Fiorano test circuit in 1 minute, 23 seconds; 1.0 second faster than the 599 GTO, 1.9 seconds faster than the Enzo Ferrari, 2.0 seconds faster than the 458 Italia and 3.5 seconds faster than the 599 GTB.

Another less that 6 month to go before 2013, my 2nd half of 2012 resolution, will be working damn hard  and save enough $$$$$$ and maybe just maybe enough to rent one for an hour drive experience of F12 Berlinetta........
