Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

March 9, 2012

So, strictly speaking, this post isn’t really about Formula 1.  I am taking a little bit of artistic license and extending the scope of this site.

Every once in a while an event comes along that shakes the very core of the Earth.  Events like the discovery of fire, the birth of Jesus, The French Revolution and the freeing of Nelson Mandela to name a few.  The most recent event occurred a mere few days ago at the Geneva Motor Show.  The date shall forever be remembered for the launch of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta!

I sincerely feel that the words on this screen cannot do this car justice.  With an acceleration of 0 – 100 km/h in just 3,1 seconds the F12 is the fastest production Ferrari ever!  The V12 engine produces over 720 horsepower (which is probably enough to rip tenders from Malema’s sticky fingers) and coupled with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox will transport you to a speed well over 330 km/h!

The new Berlinetta not only packs a punch, it knows how to look good doing it.  It is glorious to look at with a front grille that is clearly a much improved version of that found on the FF.  The headlights bear resemblance to the God of car beauty, the 458 Italia, adding to a face that appears to grin at the prospect of breaking the sound barrier.

As I said earlier, words simply cannot describe this marvel.  It has to be seen, heard and probably even touched to be believed.  The closest I could come was the official video which you can find below.  All that is left to say is…Forza Ferrari!
