The replacement for Ferrari’s 599 GTB Fiorano, the F12berlinetta took center stage as Ferrari’s new flagship twelve-cylinder at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. A descendant of the great grand touring berlinettas of the 1950s and 1960s, the F12berlinetta boasts not only remarkable looks, but equally remarkable performance. Its 6,262-cc V-12 produces a monumental 730 bhp, leading a 0–60 mph time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of over 211 mph. This brutal performance was no doubt assisted by Ferrari’s attention to detail to keep weight to a minimum (1,525 kg). Its use of unique aerodynamic solutions included the unique Aero Bridge, which created down force using the bonnet to channel air to both sides of the car just aft of the front wheel, as well as the car’s active brake cooling system, which channels air towards the brakes through the nose when cooling is needed most.

Instantly adored by the automotive press and clients alike, the F12 quickly accrued a number of awards, including Engine of the Year from Evo in 2012, Supercar of the Year from GQ in 2013, and Car of the Year from Robb Report in 2014, amongst numerous other accolades throughout its production run.

This F12berlinetta was purchased new through Ferrari of San Diego and is finished in appealing Pozzi Blu over Natural leather interior. Still with its first owner, it has less than 3,800 miles and remains in excellent condition throughout. Some of the options include 20-inch forged painted wheels over yellow-painted brake calipers, Scuderia Ferrari fender shields, suspension lifter, Daytona-style seats, parking camera, and much more. With a subtle, but attractive color combination, this F12berlinetta is sure to impress even the most discerning Ferrari enthusiasts.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0120.
