It didn’t take long for the first videos of the new Ferrari F12berlinetta to trickle down through the internet after the Italian automaker began inviting the press for test drives at the Fiorano circuit.
Among the first magazines to post a review of their encounter with the V12-powered supercar is UK car publication Auto Express, while US-based magazine Road & Track took the passenger seat with Ferrari test driver Raffaele de Simone handling the wheel.
Until Ferrari presents the replacement for the Enzo, rumored to be named F70, the F12berlinetta will be the most powerful and quickest model in the range.
Thanks to its 730-horsepower (740PS) 6.2-liter V12 engine, the Ferrari model can complete the 0-62mph (100km/h) sprint in 3.1 seconds with the 0-124mph (200km/h) acceleration taking only 8.5 seconds.
And if you happen to be on a race track or the Autobahn, you may experience what it feels like to reach a top speed in excess of 211mph or 340 km/h.
Note that, as pointed out by many YouTube commentators, AE's Jack Rix meant to say carbon-ceramic and not carbon-fiber disks 4:30 into the video (but remember, we all make mistakes...), though the brake description is posted in the correct form on the magazine's online article.
