2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The Ferrari F12berlinetta is the most powerful Ferrari to roll out of Modena, Italy. The coupe's front-mounted 6.3-liter V-12 engine makes a whopping 731 horsepower. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission — with big carbon fiber paddles on the steering wheel — pairs with the V-12 to drive the rear wheels. According to Ferrari, the F12berlinetta can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds. Massive carbon-ceramic brakes work to slow the supercar, which is nearly 150 pounds lighter than its predecessor, the 599 GTB. Weight distribution is 46/54, front to rear.

The F12berlinetta's styling is familiar, as it shares similar appearance elements with other members of the Ferrari family. The headlights are reminiscent of the 458 Italia's and the front grille is similar to the FF's.

Engineers spent more than 250 hours of wind-tunnel testing when sculpting the F12berlinetta, which is the most aerodynamically efficient Ferrari ever made. Advanced features include aero bridges on the front quarter panels and an active brake cooling system that automatically opens and closes doors in the front bumper to reduce brake temperature. Both technologies help reduce drag.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
