The Fastest Ferrari Ever Made Is Truly Lust-Worthy

By Sam Gibbs on at

There aren’t many cars that make better bedroom poster fodder than Ferrari’s. The Italian supercar maker has just busted out the fastest Ferrari to date. The F12berlinetta packs a new generation, 6.3-litre 730HP V12 engine and a dual-clutch gear box straight out of F1 – this thing will be an absolute beast doing 0-62mph in just 3.1-freaking-seconds, and it doesn’t look half bad either.

The F12 also packs Ferrari's next-generation carbon-ceramic brakes, as you might expect, so it’ll hopefully stop before you wrap it around a tree travelling at its top speed of 211mph -- that's almost warp speed. It’s apparently designed with "exceedingly high aerodynamic qualities" in mind. Whatever. This thing is gorgeous, whichever way you spin it – even Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa think it’s a beauty (apparently they'd trade their sister/cousin for the car).

The Berlinetta is set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show this month to replace the 599 GTB. Now, who wants to give me £1 million so I can buy, fuel and possibly actually insure this exotic specimen -- I'm buying 10 Euromillions tickets right now. [Jalopnik]
