British Chef, Gordon Ramsay, received a VIP welcome recently when he visited Ferrari’s Maranello home. Ramsay is a big fan of the Italian sports car maker and had the chance to drive a 458 Italia around Fiorano as well as being driven in the new F12berlinetta.
In the past few days, three videos have been released from the finest supercar makers in the business – Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani. All Italian (although Horacio Pagani originates from Argentina), all based near Modena, yet somehow each offers a very different take on the supercar theme.
Ferrari unveiled the F12berlinetta to an eager press contingent this morning at Geneva, providing the first opportunity for us to see their new flagship up-close and in the metal.
For a bit of fun, I thought it might be interesting to compare the new Ferrari F12berlinetta with its closest sibling, the 80 bhp less powerful Ferrari FF, using the sound of their engines as the only clue.
This is the car that everyone will want to see at next week’s Geneva motor show. F12berlinetta ushers in a new generation of Ferrari 12-cylinders in a car that is claimed to deliver unprecedented performance.
