Ferrari F12 Speciale to be launched next week

F12 Berlinetta by no means is a slouch. The stats say everything. It uses a 6,262 cc naturally aspirated engine with 730 horses to thrust you into a ‘cargasm’. It is the fastest Ferrari on road if we leave out the LaFerari which was in a league of its own. But somehow, the folks at Ferrari felt the need to make it bit faster!! So Voila!! We have the Ferrari F12 Speciale.

The Ferrari F12 Versione Speciale will be getting some aerodynamic tweaks and a massive weight will be dropped from its body: 200 kg. This means improved performance and better handling. The 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, shared with the FF and the LaFerrari, will continue to be offered under its hood, but its total output will be raised from the current 730 HP to a total of 760 HP.

If that is the case, this will elevate its power-to-weight ratio from 447bhp per tonne to 531bhp per tonne. That would not only give it clear bragging rights over its closest rival, the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce (485bhp per tonne), but would also put its performance on a par with that of the Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar.

Additional details on the upcoming flagship supercar are limited for now and will probably be announced once this will debut officially. The F12VS is the spiritual successor to the 599 GTO and might debut next week by certain reports on the web. This will compete against the Lamborghini Aventador SV and it will be more powerful and probably faster than its direct rival and making it go quicker on the Nurbergring. After all, this game is all about bragging rights!

Just 650 pieces of the car will be made and deliveries are expected to start by the middle of 2016 and most probably almost all of them will be sold before it makes a public debut.
