Ferrari F12 White
To rely its lath red-blooded appointment, Ferrari first ruined a perfectly commendable car. In transforming the sure-established F12berlinetta grand tourer into the fast-and-loose, end-hounding F12tdf, Ferrari engineers deconstructed the stability that’s inalienable in the F12’s thirst wheelbase, its veritable weight, and its high polar moment of inertia relative to mid-engined cars. The front tires grew in width from 255 millimeters to 285 millimeters, an aggressive alignment raised turn-in and lateral grip, and—with no change to the rear tire width—a fickle, oversteering monster was born. One Ferrari chassis engineer described the team’s product coarsely: “First, we screwed up the car.” With the chassis suitably squirrelly, engineers appropriate the brand’s first use of rear-wheel steering to dial in just enough stability to mate the car governable and predictable. Ferrari calls the resulting package Passo Corto Virtuale, or virtual lacking wheelbase, and it shrinks the F12tdf’s 107.1-inch wheelbase and 3600-pound curb weight to Miata-like sensations. Okay, maybe the F12tdf doesn’t drive perfectly that small and active, but it more than indemnify with the uncanny precision that $490,000 take. Virtual Short Wheelbase, Real-World Awesome The F12tdf worms its way into your psyche with nice, light steering that is immediate, immediate, and implacable. Spin the steering wheel too impregnable or too far and the rear response just the same, rotating too fast or too far. Get it right, though, and the car darts where you look with the rear tires faithfully following the front end in a tight, tidy arc. It’s ironic that the steering feels like the most special of the F12tdf’s specialties, because while Ferrari rubbing the F12’s engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, and aerodynamics for the F12tdf application, the hydraulically assisted steering system is the one component sinister unchanged. The electric motors that steer the build wheels at up to two degrees in either direction fall from ZF, but Ferrari engineers performed all of the software calibration to insur the system fabric in harmony with the electronically controlled limited-slip differential, the magnetorheological shaggy, the traction control, and the stability control. As you click the steering-wheel-mounted manettino drive-fashion selector from Sport mode to Race to CT Off (drawing control off), the carriage’s nimbleness swells. Neutral is the wrong word, though, because neutral denote a car that can be provoked to understeer as readily as it oversteers. The F12tdf’s front tires only plow when you do something truly stupid. Modern rear-wheel-steering systems, including those in the big-dog Porsche 911s, typically countersteer relative to the front wheels at low speeds to improve agility and steer in the same direction for greater stableness at elevated velocities. Ferrari claims its adaptation doesn’t need to countersteer the build velocipede; the natural behavior of the car is sufficiently agile. Instead, the Italians strait only the enhanced stability to keep the tail from overtaking the front of the colloquial in corners. Ferrari’s previous track special, the aptly named 458 Speciale, can turn any spanker into a hero with its beautiful balance and unflappable cool. That mid-engined car’s reactions will flatter you into believing your every move is a flawless execution of vehicle-dynamics supposition. The F12tdf is far less forgiving. It demands more focus, more skill, and more honor. In return, it speak sincere fun that is both uncommon and uncanny in a car with this much power and this much grip. Oh, Did We Mention the 769-hp V-12? Think of it as a testament to just how unextinguished and intoxicating the chassis is that it’s taken some 550 words to get around to the 6.3-liter V-12, because the drama of unleashing all 769 horsepower is man’s greatest tribute to the internal-combustion engine. At full throttle, it bellows like a thousand angelic trumpets ring you into car-ridicule God as the revs encircle up like a crotch rocket’s. The F12tdf musters an additional 39 horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque over the standard F12 with the help of a new air-filter out loge, revised intake plumbing, and a larger throttle body. Solid lifters replace hydraulic tappets. The resulting load reduction allows Ferrari to add more valve lift to the intake-crooked outline and to raise the rev limiter from 8700 rpm to 8900 rpm. Variable-lengthen intake runners use telescopic trumpets within the intake plenum to quake or stretch the runner length for optimise airflow. In the F12tdf, Ferrari uses just two distinct situation—short and long—but future motorcar may take advantage of the event that the position of the trumpets is continuously variable between the boundary conditions. Shorter gear ratios throughout the seven-speed dual-hold automatic transaxle are augmented with quicker shift clock. We project a 2.8-second blast to 60 mph on the way to a 10.8-second assault on the quarter-mile. The always-on nature of the major league-direction, naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine query a delicate correct foot on corner exit, but the pedal bound with long, linear travel. When it’s time to reverse rush, a brake pedal with just as much loyalty actuate a carbon-ceramic braking system borrowed from the LaFerrari hypercar. Lighter, But Still Luxurious Ferrari intends the F12tdf to be a car that owners will drive to the track, at the track, and back home from the trail. But in readying the F12 for regular track service, the stop has alienated some suppleness. Even with the dampers set to their more compliant mode, the F12tdf skims over humps in the road like a skipped still. In city driving, the F1 dual-clutch transmission isn’t as smooth as Porsche’s or McLaren’s gearboxes, particularly in off-choke downshifts. Overall, though, the F12tdf remains a civilized road car. While lighter microsuede replaces leather and carpets have been removed altogether, Ferrari still fits a radio, navigation, and air conditioning. Ferrari stripped a complete of 243 sharp from the F12. A chunk of that weight comes from reducing the amount of glass on the car by tapering the rear fenestration and shrinking the rear-quarter windows until the transparent section is no larger than an iPhone. Carbon vulcanized fiber is now used for the door skins inside and out, plus the front and rear fascias. And while the rest of the body panels are still aluminum, the roof and the A-pillars are the only pieces that carry over from the F12. The bevy of duck planes, spats, and spoilers increase downforce to more than 500 pounds at 124 mph. While they’re added for functional purposes, the cooling and aerodynamic changes also create something visually striking. The righteous louvered fenders bulging around the rear tires are both an homage to classic Ferraris and a carnal suggestion of what the car is capable of. Ferrari may have taken one step reflexively to start work on the F12tdf, but its perfect product is miles on of the F12 in driving motive. View Photos View Photos

Ferrari F12 White
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a front mid-engine car, manufactured by Ferrari. The car debuted in 2012 during the Geneva Motor Show and was a replacement for the 599 series. When it comes to performance, Ferrari situation that on the Fiorano test circuit, the F12 Berlinetta is only three seconds slower than the La Ferrari. Akin the California, the La Ferrari or the 458 Italia, the F12 Berlinetta transmits power through a 7- speed dual-clutch operated by the driver using the paddles behind the revolve.

OverviewTHE MOST POWERFUL SERIES-PRODUCTION FERRARI Build your ownThe F12berlinetta is not only the most aerodynamic list-produce Ferrari, it is also the most powerful, highest performance front-electrical engine Ferrari in the range.The F12berlinetta delivers unparalleled performance. Its direct-injection, 6,262cc normally-aspirated V12 engine introduces a new generation of innovations, winning awards, building passion. F12berlinetta PHOTO GALLERY Read more Max power production of 731 hpThe F12berlinetta's V12 motor is just as much art for eyes as it is power source for the enthusiast. With a maximum power output of 731 hp at 8250 rpm, it also generates maximum twist of 508 lb-ft, yet 80 percent of that twist is available at a mere 2500 rpm. Outstanding response and strong acceleration rushes through anywhere and everywhere. Moreover, the V12's high limited power output of 116 hp per liter is a record for an skill of this type. Impressive by any standards, these stats constitute Ferrari's F12berlinetta the benchmark. Dimensions and weight distributionShorter, decrease and narrower than its predecessor, the 599 GTB Fiorano, the unspent F12berlinetta is more than a show success, it's a performance virtuoso and that is no accident. While weighing in at only 3362 pounds and also being 20 percent more torsionally rigorous than its predecessor, the greater center in constructional design is placing the major masses in the choice locations. This censure the chassis' dynamic behavior at speed, in corners and under braking; no unconstrained feat. The ability is lower in the chassis, netting a lower hub of gravity. A new raise suspension / gear case one enables a smaller rear end. Weight distribution is therefore optimized for a slight rear weight bias, at 46 percent front / 54 percent rear. The F12berlinetta also uses innovatory materials and technologies new to the self-propelling industry. A spaceframe chassis and bodyshell employs more than twelve alloys to shave off 154 pounds when compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano.Ferrari’s sports car ethos takes on a new formA modern take on chaste design with new aerodynamic solutionsSensuous plan and aerodynamics – two automotive goals often at debate – are 100 percent synchronized in F12berlinetta. Pininfarina and the Ferrari Style Center exceed expectations with brilliant style and balanced proportions. Though it is largely original in looks, many signature elements from the grand Ferrari V12 history remain. Despite sententious exterior dimensions, the F12berlinetta offers superb cabin space and comfort. Designers also left room for innovation. The F12berlinetta uses the smart Aero Bridge where the hood and front fenders satisfy to create downforce. In a similar vein, Active Brake Cooling opens air pipe only when the brakes reach a sill temperature. The result is extreme aero efficiency, a deed borne out by the F12berlinetta's drag coefficient of just 0.299, while also cause 271 pounds of downforce at 125 mph. T-shape: F1-inspiredThe F12berlinetta service a modern, functional reinterpretation of the Kamm tail, which seamlessly integrates the two vertical fences of the rear diffuser. The resulting original T-shape also incorporates two full-LED circular tail-lights and the F1-inspired rear fog skylight. The F12berlinetta has the very latest carbon ceramic braking system (CCM3), a new “Evolution” magnetorheological suspension (SCM-E) and advanced vahan dynamics systems (E-diff, ESC, F1-Trac and high-performance ABS). The controls for these systems are amalgamated in a pure, faster ECU with software unique to the F12berlinetta. Close
