Ferrari F12 Berlinetta driven in Italy
As a two-seat grand tourer, the F12 is supremely comfortable. As a two-seat sportscar, the F12 is marvellously chuckable. And in slow-moving traffic, the F12 behaves like a family hatch, with none of the low-speed tantrums of a Lamborghini Aventador or a Koenigsegg Agera, the other 600+bhp two-seaters. And despite its 730bhp, this car weighs only 1.5 tonnes. That’s just about 30kg heavier than a Porsche 911 or a BMW 320d.
And if you’re seated, I’ll let you in on a shocker, even for a Ferrari – the F12 comes with a seven-year free maintenance package. This doesn’t cover regular wear-and-tear, and sheet metal work arising if you get too intimate with trees and lampposts. But for seven years, Ferrari will pay for all scheduled maintenance and servicing of the car. And that’s transferable to the new owner if you decide to sell your car within seven years. Moreover, Ferrari confirms that all its cars can run on 91-octane fuel. You will lose a bit on performance, but there will be no damage to your car.
