A GTspirit reader has exclusively sent us the first live photo of the brand new 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show on the 6th of March and the official release next Wednesday the 29th February.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta mule, that was known under the codename F152 and F620 GT, visible in the photo has an aggressive body styling combining the looks of its predecessor, the 599 GTB with the current California, FF and 458 models. The luxury sports car has a distinct profile with long body lines and features an air vent in the hood. The front fascia resembles the Aston Martin One-77 in some respects and features two side air vents positioned next to the central front grill.
The 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta offers a 740hp output from its 6.3 liter V12 engine. The powerful engine is linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel-drive setup. Acceleration from 0-100km/h is done in three seconds dead, 0-200km/h takes just 8.5 seconds. That is 0.4 seconds faster than the 700hp-strong Lamborghini Aventador. The top speed of the new Ferrari F620 GT will exceed 340km/h.
Stay tuned for more official pictures and information regarding the 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta to be released next week.
Update: We just received confirmation that this is indeed 100% the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The pictured Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was displayed at an exclusive Ferrari preview event and it is in fact a wooden model painted in a matt silver colour. There was one red Ferrari F12 Berlinetta at the preview event inside which has more details than this wooden full scale model. Regardless it gives a very good impression of the new Ferrari F620 GT. The new sketch we added, was made by a member named Ingegnere on FerrariChat.com.
