German aftermarket firm Cam-Shaft is proposing a much milder and purely cosmetic take on a car that doesn’t really need any performance upgrades to stand out from the crowd anyway.
What Cam-Shaft is recommending is a foil wrap in a matte gunmetal shade for the exterior of the Ferrari supercar that will cost you €2,900 (approximately US$3,800 at today’s currency rates) plus another €700 (US$900) if you want to cover the door sills and edges.
An additional €700 (US$900) will get you a powder coating of the F12berlinetta’s original wheels in the same color as the rest of the car.
If you do the math, the total comes out to €4,300 or about US$5,600 (if you live in Germany).
2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta Video Review [Auto Express]
The 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta is the most powerful Ferrari road car ever, with 730bhp from its 6.3-litre V12. And Ferrari says it’s even quicker around its Fiorano Circuit than the Enzo. We sent news editor Jack Rix to find out if that’s true.
2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta - International Media Test Drive with Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso
Ha preso il via l’International Media Test Drive dedicato alla F12berlinetta, durante il quale un primo gruppo di giornalisti specializzati da tutto il mondo avrà modo di prendere contatto per la prima volta con la vettura capostipite di una nuova generazione delle Ferrari 12 cilindri.
I due piloti della Scuderia Ferrari, Fernando Alonso e Felipe Massa, tornano al volante della F12 dopo le sessioni di sviluppo svolte nei mesi precedenti.
The International Media Test Drive, dedicated to the F12berlinetta, started today. The first group of specialised journalists from all over the world have for the first time the possibility of personal contact with the model from the Prancing Horse, the spearhead of a new generation of Ferrari 12-cylinders.
Meanwhile the Scuderia Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa are back behind the wheel of the F12 after the development sessions over the previous months.
Ferrari claims the F12berlinetta is not only the most powerful road car ever built in Maranello, with its 6.2-liter V12 engine delivering 730hp (740PS) and 690Nm (509 lb-ft) for a 0-200 km/h (124 mph) acceleration time of 8.5 seconds and a 340 km/h+ (211mph+) top speed, but also the most potent in the 2012 Fiorano Presentation with a lap time of 1’23”.
During a day spent in Maranello, Ferrari’ hometown, I was lucky enough to see and record some new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the successor of the 599 GTB Fiorano and it’s the most powerful Ferrari road car ever made: the 6.2 V12 engine can produce a power of 740 bhp at 8.250 rpm and a max torque of 690 Nm. The car can accelerate form 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 3.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 340 km/h.
In the video you can see some of them around the streets of Maranello making some accelerations and fly bys. You can also see a very quick track scene: I was able to film one of them making some tests on the Fiorano racetrack.
