Ferrari Continues To Pile On More Awards

Ferrari Continues To Pile On More Awards

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta this past weekend took top honours as the “Best Supercar and Luxury Car” in The Sunday Times Driving Top 100 Cars awards. This follows on the award of the Ferrari 458 Spider the previous week as the”Best Sports Car and Convertible.”

The Sunday Times Driving commented: “It sounds like it should be an uncontrollable animal, but most of the time the F12 is actually a rather civilised car. According to your mood, you can tailor it to be any Ferrari you like. Which is why the F12 is not just Ferrari’s quickest car to date, but it’s one of the best too.”

In other news Ferrari has also announced that they will announce the successor for the Enzo at next year’s Detroit Auto Show in January (according to Autoblog Ferrari has denied this). At the moment the Enzo successor is dubbed the Ferrari F70.

The company revealed the carbon fibre tub at last month’s Paris Motor Show and the Ferrari F70 is said to use a new 6.3 L V12 engine that will produce 900 hp (662kW) and will also utilise an F1 style KERS hybrid system for improved fuel economy.

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Fuel Consumption

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Fuel Consumption

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, which is the replacement of the Ferrari 599, is already giving other competitors a run for their money. One simple fact, the guys at Ferrari have produced a V12 that is capable of averaging 15 l/100kms.

This figure might be astonishingly high when compared to a normal cutesy little hatchback which averages 7 l/100km but in the supercar league it is a phenomenal fuel consumption figure for a car with a V12 engine.

The Mercedes S65 AMG  with its V12 engine has a combined cycle average of 14.3l/100km, which is lower than that of the F12 Berlinetta , but it relies heavily on it’s turbo charged engine compared to the  naturally aspirated  F12 Berlinetta.

All being said the performance is as always brilliant; the F12 Berlinetta produces 544kW and 690Nm, which is an improvement over the 599 GTO which produces 493KW and 620Nm. Unlike the 599 GTO it comes with the brilliant dual clutch transmission already used in the 458 and FF. The interior is the usual affair of leather and embroidery. The instrument gauge is similar to the 458′s and FF’s.

Aesthetically the F12 Berlinetta isn’t the prettiest Ferrari but with its sort of price tag one doesn’t need to care about looks, only form and function.
