Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Ferrari have just released images, from an exclusive test around their track of Maranello, of their new F12 Berlinetta - the replacement for the outgoing 599.

The F12 is a front engined, rear wheel drive GT car with an incredible CV.  It is the fastest and most powerful road going Ferrari ever.  And on seeing these photos it is one of the best looking.

Under the bonnet is a 6.3 litre V12 with 730bhp and 690Nm of torque.  Yes, you read that correctly.  730bhp.

0-62 takes 3.1 seconds and 0-124mph takes 8.5 seconds.  Top speed is 211mph.  Eye watering statistics.

If you have a spare £239,000 the F12 will be available in Spring 2013.

Enjoy the photos.  Oh, and we can't help but think that the F12's rear end does look quite a lot like that of the Mazda RX7.
