The most powerful street-legal Ferrari was recently unveiled. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, designed by Iacoski Design, has a top speed of 340km/h and can go from 0 to 100km/h in 3.1 seconds.

The Ferrari Berlinetta is reportedly the most powerful street-legal Ferrari available featuring a 6.3-liter V12 engine with 730 horsepower. Able to go up to 340km/h, the supercar can reach 200km/h in just 8.5 seconds.

Ferrari is reporting that the F12 Berlinetta can lap the Fiorano test circuit in 1 minute and 23 seconds, which is 3.5 seconds faster than its predecessor the 599 GTB. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the F12 employs a new chassis design, with various aluminum materials and aeronautics industry technologies to decrease weight and improve structural rigidity. With a redesigned hood, the F12 is more than twice as aerodynamically efficient as its predecessor and it is also shorter, lighter and more low riding.

Due to the combined effect of the F12’s lighter weight and improved aerodynamics, the car reduces fuel consumption by 30% and produces relatively low carbon dioxide emissions.
