The 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is possibly the best grand touring sports car the world has ever known. The design’s strongest feature is the logical, ergonomic layout of the various functions within the cockpit. The Human Machine Interface, which places all the major controls on the steering wheel. And displays all the main information in the main binnacle straight ahead. The perfect balance between advanced technologies and the sophisticated, beautifully hand-executed detailing of the Frau leather interior reflects the values that lie at the core of Ferrari’s DNA.
2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Engine
Just like Ferrari’s F1 engines, the V12 boasts very low levels of inertia to ensure that the engine revs rapidly. The car’s centre of gravity (the engine sits 30mm lower and further back in the chassis compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano). The V12 feeds power to the rear wheels through the dual-clutch F1 transmission which gives instantaneous gear shifts. Maximum power is 740CV for a specific output of 118CV per litre and 690 Nm of torque. That torque figure is on tap from 2500 rpm, giving massive acceleration right the way up to the 8700 rpm red line.
2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Interior
Interior space has been optimised to provide both a sporty driving position as well as guarantee maximum comfort. A perfect balance has been struck between advanced technologies and sophisticated. Beautifully hand-executed detailing, both of which are intrinsic to Ferrari’s DNA. The essential architecture embraces and enhances the Human Machine Interface. Which allows the driver to reach all of the controls without taking his hands off the steering wheel.
The tunnel console is both light and functional. The central bridge incorporates the F1 gearbox and hazard warning light buttons, and is one of the cabin’s signature elements. The rear of the cockpit features an upholstered rear bench with leather luggage straps to hold bags securely in place
