The countdown to the Ferrari Limited-Edition V12 has begun
The Ferrari Limited-Edition V12 is set to make an appearance soon, but what do we know about this once in a lifetime model? Well for starters it is claimed to be the ultimate expression of Ferrari’s concept of the extreme front-engine Berlinetta. Featuring characteristics such as its highly acclaimed 812 Superfast which will be taken to a level never seen before. The Limited-Edition V12 will capture the brand’s 70-plus years of experience on circuits across the world.
The Limited-Edition V12 is aimed at a niche market, meaning that passionate Ferrari’s collectors and connoisseurs are the target market. Like all Ferrari cars, its design will be elegant and striking, with its engine stealing the show. The Limited-Edition V12 will get the latest evolution of Maranello’s legendary 65° V12 engine, which reaches a power output of 609kW, and revs to 9,500 rpm, again the highest of any Ferrari ICE.
The engine’s redesign will see many of its key components get such things as a new valve timing mechanism as well as a new exhaust system. These technical solutions were done to ensure that Ferrari’s most notable engines deliver performance levels to that of a V12 segment. Some of the most distinctive features on the Limited-Edition V12 is the adoption of independent steering on all four wheels. This provides drivers a feeling of agility and precision when facing corners on the track. Another milestone for with the Limited-Edition V12 with mentioning is the work done to reduce the car’s overall weight compared to the 812 Superfast. This was by its engineers by the using a fair amount of carbon fibre on both the exterior and in the cockpit.
One of the other striking components of this new model is its aerodynamics which has been altered. The aerodynamic redesign of the entire car has been aimed at maximizing downforce levels, from components such as its the new front air intakes, rear diffuser, and exhaust configuration to the patented design of the rear screen. Overall, this new addition will have its own unique personality, making it significantly different to any other Ferrari we have seen.
