Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Review

Replacing the outgoing Ferrari 599, the F12 Berlinetta has been touted by its makers as the fastest Ferrari ever — an exciting claim coming from one of the world's most esteemed manufacturers of high-performance cars. This sleek and sexy coupe uses the same 730-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 as the FF wagon and features an outer core composed of 12 different aluminum alloys, making it 360 pounds lighter than its predecessor. The larger, more powerful engine combined with a lightweight, aerodynamic shell results in a car capable of breaking the 0-60 barrier in an astounding 3.1 seconds and reaching a top speed of 211 mph. Not only incredibly fast, the Ferrari F12 is also surprisingly efficient, delivering a 30-percent increase in fuel economy when coupled with an available start/stop system.
