Supercar of the Year 2012: Ferrari F12
The fastest Ferrari ever is our supercar of the year
Posted: 07 Jan 2013
Just as a Porsche feels like it does because of the roads around Stuttgart and the Black Forest, and you can sense Norfolk in a Lotus, and Michigan in a Corvette, so a good Ferrari carries the spirit of Emilia-Romagna, of these hills and of the fast, straight highways on the plain below. As Dario and I say our goodbyes and I squeeze the F12's key in my fist, this provenance is exactly what I want to explore.
That address, Via Abetone Inferiore, is something that always puzzled me from the time I first started picking up cars from the factory 20-odd years ago. Lower Abetone Road. But where the blazes is Abetone? It's signed all the way from Bologna, but you never see it on a map of Italy.
