We we’re just getting comfortable with the fact that the 599 GTO was Ferrari’s fastest road vehicle to date.  And now they go and announce the F12 Berlinetta.

Yes, it is the Italian company’s fastest car EVER, rocketing to 60mph in a hair over 3 seconds and reaching 124mph in as little as 8.5 seconds.  Gasp.  Achieving this kind of performance is no easy feat and some of the credit can be attributed to the all aluminum chassis coupled with a 740 horsepower 6.3liter V12 engine.  Ferrari hasn’t released pricing as of yet, but they say that it consumes 30% less fuel than the 599, which is probably equitable to a few extra pennies in the change jar – if you’re buying this car, or any Ferrari for that matter, fuel consumption isn’t much of a concern.

When you hit the source link you’ll be slapped with a full screen video from Ferrari’s chairman.  After a few minutes you’ll be redirected to a microsite where you can review the F12 Berlinetta in all it’s opulent beauty.
