Ferrari followed up their 599 sports car with the new F12 Berlinetta in 2012. The F12 Berlinetta is the most powerful high-performance road car Ferrari has ever launched. It was designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre in cooperation with Pininfarina and is said to be “a perfect balance of uncompromising aerodynamics with harmonious proportions interpreting the typical elements of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars in an original and innovative way.” The F12 Berlinetta is powered by a V12 engine with an impressive output of 740 HP – an increase of 120 HP over the previous 599 GTB Fiorano. This increase in power also comes with a decrease of fuel consumption, specifically a 30% reduction. With a total weight of just 3362 lbs, the F12 Berlinetta will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, while top speed goes up to over 211 mph. Ferrari has also announced that the new model lapped the Fiorano circuit in 1:23, faster than any other Ferrari road car.

We were given the job of cleaning this lovely F12 Berlinetta AB S-A. A manufacturers PPF (paint protection film) was applied when new, so special care was taken when the 3 stage decontamination was carried out on the vehicle. A full clay bar treatment was carried out before the use of a de-tar and iron x treatment to finish the cleaning of the paint.
