1525 kg for a 6.3-l V12 with
730bhp and 690 Nm (1 of 3 >>>)
Ferrari F12berlinetta... the new V12 coupé from Maranello
gets the V12 (6,262 cc) of the FF Coupé.
Latest update: 07 Mar. 2012. Only a few days before its official world première at the Geneva International Motor
Show this week (public days from 8 to 18 March), Ferrari unveiled last
week the F12berlinetta coupé, its new generation of V12 sports cars,
replacing the Ferrari 599.
On the engine side, the F12berlinetta is the most powerful Ferrari road
car. With 740 hp (544 kW, 730 bhp) / 8,500 rpm (just under the 8,700 rpm
it is considerably more powerful than both the 599 GTB Fiorano (456 kW, 620 hp, 612 bhp / 7,600 rpm) and
GTO (493 kW, 670 hp, 661 bhp / 8,250 rpm) versions.
The V12 engine (65°) of the 2-seater F12berlinetta
has a displacement of
6,262 cc, or 382.13 cubic inches (521.8cc per cylinder,
or 31.8 cu. in.), as known in the 4-seater Ferrari FF AWD Coupé,
with the direct petrol / gasoline injection (injection pressure can go up to
200 bars) and 48 valves.
Downforce is boosted while drag
The engine is mid-front positioned
(its weight is more over the front of the wheelbase than on the front overhang)
for a more neutral handling with better stability and agility.
The torque of the naturally-aspirated
engine is also in significant progress in the new Ferrari F12berlinetta,
with 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) / 6,000 rpm (80 per cent of the torque is available
rpm), compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano (608 Nm, 449 lb-ft) / 5,600 rpm and
599 GTO (620 Nm,457
lb-ft) / 6,500 rpm versions, which their 5,999cc (366.08 cubic
inch) V12 engine.
The F12berlinetta engine extracts a specific output of 86.9 kW (118hp, 117 bhp)
from each 1000cc, as well as a specific torque figure of 110.2
Nm (81.3 lb-ft) / 1000cc.
These figures lead to the
performance terms. The 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission has closer gear ratios developed specifically for this
performance: 3.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), 8.5 seconds for the
0-200 km/h (124 mph), on the way to a maximum speed of "over"
(as Ferrari says) 340 km/h (211 mph).
Should you ask now about the consumption, the combined
figure (ECE + EUDC combined cycle) is announced at 15 litres / 100 km,
which is the equivalent of 15.7 US mpg, 18.8 UK mpg, or driving
6.7 km per
litre of fuel. This represents about a 30% reduction compared to
the outgoing model. The CO2 emissions are announced
at 350 g/km (with the HELE System, or High Emotion
Low Emissions, which is a set of measures which aim to enhance the performance
while reducing consumption and emissions, such as the stop and start function).
At 1,525 kg (3362 lb, with lightweight options), the
dry weight-power ratio comes at 2.08 kg/kW (2.06 kg/hp or 2.09 kg/bhp)...
