Mention Ferrari, and most men would salivate at their mouths, wondering just when they will be able to join this elite club and drive home one of these exotics. The Italian company has rolled out plenty of high end rides over the years, and making waves on the Formula 1 circuit to boot, but this time around, a new flagship has been announced that will see off the Ferrari 599, which is the current top-of-the-line production car. The Ferrari F12berlinetta will be crowned the new king, where underneath the hood you will find 730 horses ready and waiting to be unleashed with each tap of your foot on the accelerator, crammed into a 6.3 liter V12 engine. This means it can hit 60 miles an hour from a standstill in approximately 3 seconds, making it the zippiest Ferrari to date in that category, and achieving a top speed of 211 miles per hour to boot.
As for pricing, aim for the sky – if its predecessor, the Ferrari 599 already costs approximately $310,000, then you can more or less guess where the Ferrari F12berlinetta is going to end up in terms of its price tag. Despite being faster than ever before, the F12berlinetta also has a heart for the environment (to a certain degree), as it sips 30% less fuel than the 599, leaving you with a combined city and highway fuel economy of approximately 17 miles per gallon.
