Powered by a 6.2 liter, direct injection, 65° V12 engine, the F12 Berlinetta is the patriarch of extreme 12-cylinder engine cars. Like those developed by Ferrari for Formula 1, this engine (which is positioned 3 cm (1.2 in) lower than on the 599 GTB Fiorano) has extremely low inertia which offers very fast acceleration.
There are no cars from Maranello without Brembo brakes: a solid bond begun in 1975 with steel discs for the Ferrari team. In this case, on the other hand, the 398 mm (15.7 in) discs on the front and the 360 mm (14.2) discs on the rear are made of carbon-ceramic material: ideal for outstanding and consistent performance, thanks in part to the Brembo calipers, 6-piston on the front and 4-piston on the rear. Performance, comfort, and design, all in one.
