620 GT rendering and the leaked picture in flesh. to me it looks like a coupe FF and its might be the perfect challenger for Aventador from Ferrari.

Quote:
According to GTspirit, the F620 GT will produce 740hp from its 6.3 liter V12 engine. 0-100km/h transpires in 3.0 seconds dead, 0-200km/h in 8.5 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster than the Lamborghini Aventador, and top speed is in excess of 340km/h (211mph).

What The Heck!!

Just saw the leaked pic of the 620GT elsewhere. I am dumbfound.

Looks like Ferrari has replaced Pininfarina with Leepu Awlia (of Chop Shop fame) as their new designer.

IMO this beats the FF and the 612 Scag to the Ugliest Ferrari title.

This leaves just the 458 to be the ONLY Fezza I'd like to have from the current line-up.

Is it just me, or is the profile remarkably similar to a Corvette with FF highlights ? Must be an American designer !

Ferrari drops a teaser. But looks more like a 458 to me. Innit?

I second that, Ferrari has completely lost the plot as far as design of their vehicle goes, I have a feeling that they are trying to hard.

I would pick an old Ferrari over and above these newer Fezzas.

Whatever that render is, I love the design. The weird new headlamp shape works much better on this than the 458 for me (well, I don't like the 458 at all to be honest). Sleek, long bonnet with the cabin pushed far back. Perfect GT, and specs to match or better the Aventador. I hope it comes out looking this way.

I second that. I think it looks pretty good. Its a perfect look for a GT. But i have to be honest here, 599 is a better looking car than this one, just like 430 is better looking than 458. In my books, 430 is the best looking ferrari.
But looking at the competition, i think Lamborghini has got this one. Although they are completely different car, one is a grand tourer while the other is an typical sports car, looks good but its really uncomfortable.

and sorry to stick my nose in, in my opinion the best looking Ferrari has to be Ferrari F355. But I would agree with you guys that I would anyday prefer F430 over 458 in terms of looks. I sometimes wonder why do people go gaga over 458! Performance is one thing and I have no doubts in my mind about 458's performance, but asthetic appeal of 458... No way!

Anyway, back to the topic, 620 GT looks a bit overdone from the front IMO. I hope it has the specs to outdo the Aventador, otherwise the Lambo is going to be a clear winner between the two.

Disappointed. This is not what you expect from Ferrari to compete with the Lamborghini flagship. The 575 Maranello over this one, anyday.

Revealed officially: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

http://www.ferrari.com/English/GT_Sp...ver-built.aspx

Quote:
The first in a new generation of V12 cars unveiled exclusively on www.ferrari.com

Maranello, 29th February – Today’s on-line unveiling of the F12berlinetta ushers in a new generation of Ferrari 12-cylinders in the form of a car that delivers unprecedented performance from an exceptional new engine, combined with innovative design that redefines classic themes along with extreme aerodynamics.

Revealed to the world for the first time on Ferrari.com in preparation for its official debut at the Geneva International Motor Show, the F12berlinetta, finished in an attractive new Rosso Berlinetta three-layer colour, represents the very cutting-edge of mid-front-engined sports cars.

This is, in fact, the most powerful and high-performance Ferrari road car ever launched thanks to the incredibly efficient engine – in terms of mechanical, combustion and fluid-dynamics efficiency – which, together with advanced vehicle architecture, aerodynamics, components and electronic controls, guarantee unsurpassed driving involvement whatever the road or track.

Ferrari’s traditional transaxle layout has been revolutionised to match the more extreme performance of the car. The wheelbase has been shortened and the engine, dashboard and seats have been lowered in the chassis, while the new layout of the rear suspension and gearbox enabled Ferrari’s engineers to make the rear volume of the car smaller. The overall result is a very compact car with a lower centre of gravity that is further back in the chassis, and a level of aerodynamic efficiency that sets new standards.

Scaglietti, renowned for its expertise in aluminium materials and construction, designed an all-new spaceframe chassis and bodyshell using 12 different kinds of alloys, some of which have been used here for the first time in the automotive sector, and employing new assembly and joining techniques. This has resulted in a 20 per cent increase in structural rigidity while reducing weight to just 1525 kg (70 kg less than the previous V12 coupé) with an ideal distribution between the axles (54 per cent over the rear).

The F12berlinetta’s 6262cc 65° V12 engine delivers unprecedented performance and revs for a naturally-aspirated 12-cylinder. Its maximum power output is 740 CV which translates to a specific output of 118 CV/l. Torque reaches a peak of 690 Nm, 80 per cent of which is already available at just 2,500 rpm, and which provides an unrelenting surge of acceleration all the way to the 8,700 rpm limit. The engine is mated to the F1 dual-clutch transmission, which has closer gear ratios developed specifically for this car’s performance. The F12berlinetta boasts a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.1 kg/CV .

Fuel consumption has been reduced by 30%, with CO2 emissions of just 350 g/km – figures which put the F12berlinetta at the top of the high-performance league. These results have been obtained by extensive research and development which focused on efficiencies of the whole vehicle: engine, aerodynamics, tyres and weights.

Similarly excellent results have been obtained with the car’s aerodynamic development, thanks to the integration of the design process with extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and lengthy testing in the wind tunnel. Downforce has been boosted by 76 per cent (123 kg at 200 km/h) while drag has been significantly reduced (the Cd is just 0.299). These results come courtesy of two new solutions. The first of these is the Aero Bridge which uses the bonnet to generate downforce by channelling air away from the upper part of the car to its flanks where it interacts with the wake from the wheel wells to decrease drag. The second is Active Brake Cooling, a system that opens guide vanes to the brake cooling ducts only at high operating temperatures, again reducing drag.

The F12berlinetta’s impressive technical specifications are completed by Ferrari’s latest generation carbon-ceramic brakes (CCM3) and the evolution of the magnetorheological suspension control system (SCM-E). As is now traditional with all Ferraris, its control systems (E-Diff, ESP Premium, F1-Trac, and high-performance ABS) are all fully integrated.

The result is that the new Prancing Horse 12-cylinder accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.5 seconds. It also completes a lap of the Fiorano circuit in 1’23”, faster than any other Ferrari road car. Benchmark performance and maximum driving involvement are guaranteed by immediate turn-in, with smaller steering wheel angles, and increased cornering speed. Stopping distances have also been drastically reduced.

The design of the F12berlinetta is a result of the collaboration between the Ferrari Styling Centre and Pininfarina and is a perfect balance of uncompromising aerodynamics with harmonious proportions interpreting the typical elements of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars in an original and innovative way. A coupé with sleek, aggressive lines whose compact exterior dimensions conceal exceptional in-car space and comfort. The all-new Frau leather interior highlights the balance of advanced technology and sophisticated, handcrafted detailing. In the middle of the light and lean dashboard, there are new carbon fibre and aluminium air vents clearly inspired by the aeronautic field.

The cabin has been optimised to ensure maximum usability of the interior space with additional luggage capacity behind the seats, which can also be easily reached thanks to the large aperture offered by the tail-gate. With the cockpit designed around the driver, typical of all Ferraris, the Human Machine Interface approach is emphasised, grouping all the major commands within immediate reach to guarantee maximum ergonomics for the most involving driving experience.

Too many curves, I am afraid it looks very korean to me

The 458 is the only good looking Fezza out there!

Does 740CV translate to 740ps of power? Also how much does the aventador produce.?

As for the looks, they should have tried something in the lines of the F40 and the Enzo. This one looks the rear is a facelifted 599 and front is too similar to the FF.
