What is it like to drive the most powerful Ferrari? I mean a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The extremely expensive F12 Berlinetta comes with a 6.3 liter V12 engine, yielding 729 horsepower and 508 pound feet of toque. Pushing the F12Berlinetta to 60 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of a little over 211 miles per hour. This car definitely provides a unique driving experience for the driver with its sounds and sights.
But its not all about the engine, because looks are important too. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has dramatic lines around its long and low body. It was built with an aggressive face that represents the car’s personality. A perfect mix of aesthetics and aerodynamics.
Well, if all that isn’t enough, then this might interest you. A limited edition, custom body kit for the F12 Berlinetta, exclusively made by DMC. The extremely special body kit will only be limited to 10 units. So how does that sound to you?Read the entire article DMC offers a limited edition body kit for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Ferrari has since been part of the elite circle of automakers producing the world’s best performing cars. One of its most well-known creations in the field of performance is the F12berlinetta. This grand tourer produces impressive records thanks to its powerful 6.3-liter V12 engine that can conjure power of up to 730 horsepower (544 kilowatts) and 520 lb.-ft. of torque. It can even reach a maximum speed of 211 mph and sprint from 0 to 62 mph in only 3.1 seconds. All these, plus the half-a-million-dollar price tag and rarity, gives the F12berlinetta the rights to exude an aura of exclusivity.
But of course, all good things must come to an end, and the F12berlinetta’s reign as the leading grand tourer must be turned over to a younger successor. However, even though the F12berlinetta was overthrown by the Ferrari 812 Superfast, it remains to be one of the most impressive grand tourers of this generation; and to top it all off, one lucky F12berlinetta owner handed his prized possession to Carlex Design to make some modifications to enhance this already magnificent vehicle.
There is no reason to feel bad that the F12berlinetta had to be replaced by the 812 Superfast since the latter is a descendant of the former, specifically the limited-edition F12berlinetta F12tdf variant, yet taking on some “stronger cues” from the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The 812 Superfast is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, producing 789 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 530 lb.-ft. of torque (768 Nm) of torque; just a slight difference from the F12berlinetta’s. A sprint of 0 to 62 mph (or 100 kph) is achievable in only 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of over 211 mph (340 kph); a slight difference in acceleration time, but the same top speed as the F12berlinetta.Read the entire article Carlex Design refreshes the Ferrari F12berlinetta with an eye-catching touch of vibrance
Sounds cool. Horacio Pagani (founder of Pagani Automobili) has just added two special cars to his exclusive collection. A Ferrari F12 TDF and a Porsche 911 R. It comes as no surprise. Actually, the supercar magnate is known for having a special liking to anything exotic.
To some though, acquiring the work of their competitors may be the last thing on their minds. Pagani has been manufacturing the world’s most exclusive supercars--- the Pagani Huayra and the Zonda. However, it’s not as if this is the first time that the Modena-based manufacturer has admired and actually bought another brand outside his firm. In fact, Pagani already owns an MSO McLaren P1, a Porsche Carrera GT and a Ford GT even before he saw these two new babies.
Porsche earlier made an exclusive offer to current 918 owners for a chance to own one of the company’s limited models. The Porsche 911 R that is. As the story goes, Pagani didn’t pass up the chance and straight away, he took them up on their amazing offer. Just like the white 911 R that was shown in Geneva the previous year, Pagani’s Porsche 911 R also has those red stripes painted along the exterior.Read the entire article Pagani founder is the new owner of a Porsche 911 R and a Ferrari F12tdf
There was quite some fuzz when suddenly a yellow Ferrari with a number of similarities with the Ferrari F12berlinetta showed up during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali event at the Daytona International Speedway. There were speculations it was a one-off special order derived from the F12berlinetta, but back then, there were no confirmed information from Ferrari. But now, Ferrari has spoken up about its latest one-off creation – the SP 275 RW Competizione.
According to Ferrari, the one-off SP 275 RW Competizione is underpinned by the chassis that underpins the F12berlinetta, which is considered as one of the most beautiful Ferrari sports cars of all time. Taking care of the design of the SP 275 RW Competizione is none other than Ferrari’s own Styling Centre, with the cooperation of Italian car design firm Pininfarina SpA.
As implied by its moniker, the Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione takes inspiration from the Ferrari 275 GTB, which is considered as one of the most iconic V12 berlinettas in the 1960s. In fact, the SP 275 RW Competizione could be considered as a modern take on the 275 GTB, but with some personal flavors from the person who ordered it – a certain dentist from Florida named Rick Workman, hence the rw initials. In fact, Workman had initials on the one-off Ferrari SP 275 RW Competizione.Read the entire article Ferrari confirms SP 275 RW Competizione is based on F12berlinetta and inspired by 275 GTB

As pleasurable as it may seem to destroy supercars in video games such as GTA (Grand Theft Auto), it’s not as much fun when it’s your supercar getting wrecked in real life.

Sports cars are a thing of beauty and speed. But when these are enhanced to become even better than their original versions, then what you get are already impressive cars made even more sophisticated and revved up. The Mansory company from Brand in Bavaria, Germany, has long been synonymous with churning out impressive refinements of super sports cars. Whether it’s a Bugatti Veyron or a Bentley Continental, Mansory has ensured these cars emerge more comfortable and sporty than when these came out of the assembly line.
Now Mansory has brought its Stallone conversion to the Ferrari F12, and the results have been absolutely astounding. As it is, the Ferrari F12 already boasts of a powerful engine performance. Mansory Stallone has further improved this with its refinement program which specializes in light carbon bodywork as well as light-alloy rims designed to give the car the perfect finish.

A track-focused SRT Viper ACR may have its debut in 2014, according to a Motor Trend report. This faster version of the 2013 SRT Viper was confirmed by SRT CEO Ralph Gilles. The previous Viper ACR had bigger brakes, lower weight, adjustable suspension, and new aerodynamics to offer a more impressive track experience.
It’s believed that this new car will provide the same types of enhancements compared to the 2013 SRT Viper. Development has been halted since SRT is working to get better tires. It’s believed that Michelin won’t sell the Pilot Sport Cups used for the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to SRT.
This means that the SRT team is presently pressuring Pirelli to offer tires that have more grip than the P-Zero Corsa rubber used on the regular Viper. Motor Trend said that unfortunately, the SRT Viper ACR will probably not have additional power. Even if engineers could generate more than the present 640 hp from the 8.4-liter V-10, politics within the company make it unattainable.Read the entire article SRT Viper ACR will debut in 2014 with no additional power to save the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
