Default Top Gear drives the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta






Letís not get carried away, because we need to put this car into context first. And the best way to do that is to put some facts at your fingertips. So, open brain and absorb the following: it has 730bhp and 509lb ft of torque, stats which give it a 211mph maximum and a 0-62mph of 3.1secs. 0-124mph is dealt with in 8.5secs, so 0-100mph must be around the 6.5 second mark. That makes this an astonishingly fast car Ė Ferrariís fastest ever road car, in fact. Quicker than the Enzo, quicker than the 599 GTO. And not just in a straight line. It gets round Ferrariís own Fiorano track faster than both of them, too.

Is it the same as 599 GTO with too much power around corners? I am more of a V8 Ferrari fan like 430/458.

I'm astonished at the lack of torque compared to the power.

Its Natural aspirated v12. You cant get the same torque as a Supercharged or Turbocharged engine.

I'm plenty aware. Regardless, the naturally aspirated V10 in the new Viper tosses out 640 hp and 600 lb ft. 730 and 509 in the f12berlinetta? That's quite a big difference...
