Italian car manufacturer Ferrari reveals its latest flagship GT, the 12Cilindri, commemorating 70 years in the US market

The Italian car manufacturer Ferrari has revealed its latest flagship GT, marking the replacement of one of its most iconic models. Unveiled during the Miami Grand Prix weekend, the new 12Cilindri model commemorates Ferrari’s 70th anniversary in the US market.

Boasting impressive performance stats, the 12Cilindri accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 211 mph. This new supercar pays homage to the legendary Ferrari 365 GTB/4, an iconic model from the brand’s history.

Powered by Ferrari’s 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, the 12Cilindri promises to be more powerful than its predecessor, the 812 Superfast. However, there are concerns that this might be the last front-engined V12 Ferrari, as the company has invested heavily to ensure compliance with new emission regulations.

Enrico Galliera, Ferrari’s chief marketing and commercial officer, praised the engine’s performance while meeting regulations, indicating that few manufacturers are still investing in V12 engines. The new model includes both hard-top coupe and open-roof Spider versions, with prices expected to be revealed closer to the launch in 2025.

Flavio Manzoni, the chief design officer, described the 12Cilindri as marking a new era for Ferrari. He emphasized that while the car’s design pays tribute to the past, it also looks towards the future with innovative features.

One notable design feature is the addition of two flaps on each side of the car, integrated into the bodywork to improve downforce at high speeds while maintaining a clean aesthetic when stationary. The 12Cilindri also features a 20mm reduction in wheelbase, enhancing its agility compared to its predecessor.

In terms of technology, Ferrari has introduced brake-by-wire technology for the first time in this model, allowing for varying brake force across all four wheels. Additionally, a new ABS-Evo system improves braking performance and reduces stopping distances.

Overall, the Ferrari 12Cilindri promises to deliver unmatched performance, handling, and design, representing the pinnacle of the Maranello brand’s legacy
