Ferrari F12berlinetta, No Longer In CGI

The initial shots of the Ferrari F12berlinetta looked suspiciously re-touched for our liking, so some live shots were a necessity before making any final judgement on the car. If you ask me, it looks even better without excessive rendering.

The F12berlinetta replaces the lovely 599, but packs an even more substantial V12; 740 horsepower is expected from the 6.3L V12, allowing it to hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. A 7-speed dual clutch transmission will help the car go all the way to 211 mph. A curb weight of 3,362 lbs is refreshingly light for a V12 supercar.

    Does anyone know what that black plastic box in the middle of the rear bumper is?! I'm undecided on the overall look, however I am sure about not wanting my Italian supercar leave the factory with something that looks like a bolted on afterthought for... whatever... I can't even imagine what it could be for...

      My guess would be a rear fog-lamp but they're supposed to be placed towards the driver's side of the vehicle and not in the centre. It could also be a reversing lamp.

    It's like the CR-V, in that it has a very attractive mouth; it's just a bit out of scale to the rest of the facia. Fortunately, both look better after a toke. They're kinda like Gina Gershon.

  • FreedMike During my second year of college, I took my first French class, where I discovered that if you remove the "e" from "Citroen," you get the French word for "lemon." My family had a Citroen - an SM, no less. Completely appropriate. Nice logo or not, Stellantis is going to have an uphill battle reintroducing this brand - or any French brand, for that matter.
  • IBx1 It works better as an oval than a circle as it appears in the headline photo, but I generally dislike the 2D logos everyone in the industry is adopting and think badge looked great since '09.
  • Pbxtech I like it, but it's not an improvement. Lateral move at best.
  • Cprescott It is not a disaster like the 2024 Ford Mustake.
  • Cprescott The company's issues are not resolved by a new logo.
