The guys from Ferrari are now working on a 2017 Berlinetta which will be an updated version of the 2016 one. It is expected that the new 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta will see the light of the day at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. But someone posted a bunch of photos of it while they tested the prototype. Because this prototype isn’t the final product we can expect some changes until it hit the Geneva Motor Show. Also one thing is expected and that is the performance increasing of a 10-hp.
Since the 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was introduced in 2012 it didn’t receive any major changes. Now the Italian automaker is saying that now is the right moment to do the long awaited update. As far as we are seeing it on the spy photos most of the changes are done on the rear of the car. There is a reason why they covered the rear quarter-panel, we are expecting that the rear spoiler, defuser, air vents and the whole rear fascia will be altered in some way on the exotic.
The “exotic” and “sports” names are glued onto this car which is mostly true for the exterior design and for the engine but the inside is pretty much same like on any other car of this type. There is not much luxury details because this car is built mostly for the track and not for high luxury. It have a pretty minimalist and stiff interior with awesome sport seats that are comfortable but still good for racing. Also accent and the stitching is in the color of the exterior.
The engine specs are off course not yet announced because they are waiting the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to do that. The old one have a 382 cu in (6262 cc) 6.3-Liter DOHC 48-valve V12 with a amazing power output of 740 horsepower @ 8500 and 520 pound feet of torque @ 6750 rpm. The engine is mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that have a manual shifting mode. The engine block and heads are made from aluminium and the direct fuel injection is inevitable on the F12 Berlinetta. While the new engine will as expected have 750 horses.
2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Price and Release date
Again considering that the Italian automaker will reveal all information in Geneva the exact price of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta for 2017 model year is a mystery. But it is expected that the price tag will be around $330.000.
