Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Expected in : 2013 Year
Price : 4 Crores - 5 Crores
Overall : 
The Ferrari F12 berlinetta is a front mid-engine, rear wheel drive grand tourer produced by Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. The F12 berlinetta, introduced to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, replaces the Ferrari 599 series grand tourers.
Ferrari's legendary 1.9-mile Fiorano test circuit hosts an intelligently arranged series of turns that provide a clear picture of a vehicle's handling. Or so I'm told. I remember little of my three laps there in the 2013 F12 Berlinetta besides the engine screaming flat out into fifth gear on the barely half-mile straight. My shock wasn't with the velocity itself -- such speeds are routine with 731 horsepower but with the ease and comfort with which it was attained.The 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is everything that a dynamite contemporary sports cars should  be in other words its a Ferrari among a legacy of Ferrari's. The F12 is the complete package with its luscious looks, wicked speed and innovative technology. It replaces the Ferrari 599 as Ferrari’s new  V-12 offering front-mounted engine car.
Engine : 

The basics (V12, 6262cc, 65 degree angle) are the same, but thereafter it’s entirely different. The work that’s gone on is little short of staggering. The presentation we had on the engine alone went on for the best part of 45 minutes… They've tuned the harmonics of the inlet and exhaust, developed a new oil scavenge pump for the dry sump, tested six different injector patterns. The list is bafflingly complex and detailed. But it has to be. As Ferrari has previously stated, the naturally aspirated V12 is the beating heart of this company.
The V-12 sits behind the front axle and 1.2 inches lower than the 599's mill, helping lower the F12's center of gravity by 1.0 inch. The car also weighs 154 pounds less, thanks in part to a beautiful aluminum chassis that forms the gorgeous proportions. The F12 is smaller than the 599 in every exterior dimension, but as a large number of customers will drive this car daily and for higher average distances, Ferrari took extra care to keep the its interior space similar.
It takes a mile or so to acclimate to the steering, which has the delicacy and gravity of a katana. Its lightness allows the driver to rotate through its two turns lock-to-lock with a thumb and trigger finger, and yet, the wheel offers an immense amount of feedback, clearly relaying not just the onset of under steer or over steer, but precisely how to correct it. The bottom right of the wheel holds Ferrari's famous five-position dial that commands an array of computer-controlled subsystems.

Locking system : 
The electronic rear differential not to mention nearly two feet in width worth of Michelin rear tire - offers fabulous traction on corner exit. Working in conjunction with Ferrari's stellar F1 traction control system, the differential searches between open and full lock, always aiming to reduce the need for steering input. It feels like there's a miniature wizard in there, dolling out torque with magic. Interestingly, Track mode locks up the differential more aggressively and relies on traction control to reel in more clumsy maneuvers. Turning traction control off actually reduces lock.
Suspension : 
A secondary electromagnetic coil helps the shocks to react in as little as 5 milliseconds to changing road conditions, resulting in superb ride quality that feels appropriate for a car at this level of performance -- taut and firm, but not uncomfortable. The carbon ceramic brakes, which Ferrari redesigned in search for more consistent feel versus the 599, offer progressive and linear application along with shorter stopping distances. When the large, 15.7-inch front rotors get too hot, vents on the side of the fascia open automatically and draw air in.An opening at the top of each fender that exits behind the front wheels is called the "Aero Bridge," and while the styling may not age well, Ferrari claims it reduces drag and helps the F12 generate 271 pounds of down force at 124 mph.
