Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in action - first official promo [videos]

Ferrari has released this debut promo for the all-new F12 Berlinetta in addition to the world premiere press conference video at the Geneva Motor Show which took place earlier this week (see below).

Probably one of the best promos we have seen in a while, the video starts off as a slow teaser with partials views, but then gives full view while the F12 is in motion on a track. Then we're blessed with a combination of action and slow motion shots while the sound of the V12 engine adds the icing to the cake.

For your reference, the F12 Berlinetta is the successor of the 599 GTB Fiorano, and is the most powerful road-going model in the company's history. It features a 6.2-liter (6262cc) V12 that produces 740 PS (544 kW / 730 bhp) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is connected to a dual-clutch transmission which enables the 1525 kg (3362 lb) supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 340 km/h (211 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 15l/100 km (18.8 mpg UK / 15.7 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 350 g/km.

Underneath the car's aerodynamic yet aggressive bodywork the F12 rides on an aluminum spaceframe which is 20 percent more rigid than its predecessor. The car also features carbon ceramic brakes, an electronically locking differential and magnetorheological dampers.
