High Performance Cars: The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

High Performance Cars: the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

High Performance Cars, such as the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta usually attract a vast amount of popularity, very much like a ‘celebrity following’. They get photographed when driving by, and photographed when parked up on the side of the street. Copious amounts of people stop and stare, or point and talk about it. The car often attends high-end premiers and is usually always looking its best. But, what makes the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta such a ‘high-end’ performance car? Well, apart from it being a Ferrari (which in many people’s minds will depict that with no further description necessary), we’re about to find out more of the specifics…

High Performance Cars: the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2013 – Present)

High Performance Cars, such as a Ferrari, usually come with a high price tag – and you guessed it, the F12 is no different. From new, you can expect to pay £240,113 for the car. With its luxurious interior, coupled with its high-performing components under the bonnet and sleek and stylish exterior, it’s no wonder that a combination of all three elements pushes the price of the car up dramatically.

So, the power of the car – how much does it have? Well, to put it bluntly – a huge amount. Not only is the car a GT, it has a roaring 6.3 litre V12 engine. This gives out a dazzling 730 BHP and allows the car to reach 0-62mph in just 3.1 seconds. If you’re looking for the ride of your life, this car may just be able to provide it.

The car also has an automatic 7-speed gearbox as well as a rear-wheel drivetrain. This means that the cars weight is spread more evenly along its drivetrain from the front to rear, enabling better balance and as such, better handling. This is especially great for taking the F12 out on a track, allowing the car to grip around the corners and not slide you over the grass verge.

Insurance for a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The parts used to create the F12 are extremely expensive in themselves and this helps understand why insurance for such a car would be so high. Generally, the higher the repair costs, the higher the purchase costs, and the higher the performance of a car, the higher the insurance group rating will be, and the higher the insurance group rating, the higher the cost of an insurance policy. The insurance group rating for the F12 is 50 (the highest rating a car can be given). This will mean you’re looking at the top end of your budget in order to insure it, and in order to insure its true value, many owners will insure it under a High Performance Car policy. This type of policy ensures ultimate protection in the event that the worst happens.
