The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer. The F12 debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and replaced the 599 grand tourer. The naturally aspirated 6.3 liter Ferrari V12 engine has won the 2013 International Engine of the Year Award in the Best Performance category and Best Engine above 4.0 liters. The F12 was named "The Supercar of the Year 2012" by car magazine Top Gear.
In 2014, the F12berlinetta was awarded the XXIII Premio Compasso d'oro ADI. Accepting the award was Ferrari's Senior Vice President of Design, Flavio Manzoni.
A 6.3 Liter, naturally aspirated 65° V12 engine of the Ferrari F140 engine family is used. Displacement is shared with the FF, but the F140 FC version installed on the F12 generates a power output of 730 HP at 8,250 RPM 509 lb⋅ft of torque at 6,000 RPM.
The engine of the F12 has been designed to be more efficient than that of the 599, as well as more powerful. The engine management system is fitted with Ferrari's HELE start-stop system to reduce fuel consumption when idling. Ferrari reports that the F12 can achieve 15 MPG – a 30% improvement over the 599 – and produces CO2 emissions of 350 g/km.
The F12 transmits power through a 7-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic gearbox operated by the driver using paddle shifters present behind the steering wheel. Compared to similar models, the F12berlinetta uses shortened gear ratios to match the power of the engine.
The F12 is built around an aluminum space frame chassis co-developed with Scaglietti. The chassis is made up of 12 different aluminum alloys and improves structural rigidity by 20% over the 599, whilst reducing weight by 154 lbs. The center of gravity has also been lowered by around 1 in. The F12 weight distribution is 48% front, 52% rear.
Carbon ceramic brakes standard and similar to other contemporary Ferrari models, the F12 uses Ferrari's third generation CCM3 carbon ceramic disc brakes with ABS, SCM-E magnetorheological suspension, an electronic LSD, ESP Premium stability control and F1-Trac traction control. The car's stability and traction control, suspension and other settings are controlled by the Manettino dial mounted on the steering wheel.
The F12 makes use of aerodynamic techniques based on Ferrari's 599XX and Formula One programs, developed with wind tunnel and CFD testing. A notable feature is the Aero Bridge, an air channel running from the bonnet, through the flanks and along the sides of the vehicle, creating an effect that increases downforce. Another feature is Active Brake Cooling ducts, which open to direct cooling air only when the brakes are hot, keeping them closed at other times to reduce aerodynamic drag. The F12 produces 271 lbs of downforce at 124 mph – an increase of 76% over the 599 GTB – and has a drag coefficient of 0.299
The body of the F12 is designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre and Pininfarina, and shares some styling elements with other recent Ferrari models. This includes a front grille similar to the FF and headlights shared with the FF and 458 Italia. The interior, based on the FF, features new "Frau leather" upholstery with aluminum, Alutex, and carbon fiber trim, and has increased luggage space compared to the 599.
The F12 TDF (tour de France) is a track-focused version of the F12 unveiled in October 2015. The name pays homage to the Tour de France automobile race held between 1899 and 1986 and which was regularly won by the Ferrari 250 between 1956 and 1964. The TDF shares the same 6.3 liter V12 engine, but with power output increased to 769 HP at 8500 rpm and 520 lb⋅ft of torque at 6750 rpm. The F12tdf is 243 lbs lighter than the F12, having a claimed dry weight of 3,120 lbs. Ferrari claimed the TDF to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and 0 to 124 MPH in 7.9 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 211 mph. The car has recorded a 1 minute 21 seconds lap time on Ferrari's Fiorano test circuit , 2 seconds faster than the standard F12 and 488 GTB, 3 seconds faster than the 599GTO, 4 seconds faster that the Enzo and just 1.3 seconds behind the fastest lap set by the LaFerrari. The TDF was designed by Ferrari Styling Centre. Production of the F12tdf was limited to 799 units for the world and just 230 for the US Market.
