Current Events: 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The successor to the Ferrari 599 is here; the F12 Berlinetta. 700hp+ V12, 70kg in weight savings over the outgoing 599 (1525kg) and a claimed 3.1 second 0-62 mph time. It's apparently two seconds faster around the Fiorano test circuit than the 458 Italia, but the major tricks this new flagship has up its sleeve lie in the lightweight materials used to construct the panels and space-frame chassis. Hopefully a journalist or three will get behind the wheel soon so that we can get more data on it.

While I'm sad Ferrari will never make another manual transmission harboring supercar, there's nothing in their current lineup even hinting that they aren't on top of their game.
