Ferrari is set to launch its most powerful road-going vehicle of all time late this year. The car is called the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and will replace the 599 GTB. I'm not really feeling the design of the car personally, but I do like the long 458 Italia style headlights. I also like the V12 engine that makes 730 hp.
That engine is a 6.3 L beast with an 8000 RPM redline and 508 LB-FT of torque at 6000 RPMs. The car uses a seven-speed paddle shift dual clutch gearbox and can rocket from 0 to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds. The car can also muster a top speed of 211 mph. Ferrari also has optional start/stop technology for the car.
That start/stop technology promises to increase fuel economy by 30% and reduce emissions by 60%. The car comes with carbon ceramic brakes and has a host of other performance features and technology that Ferrari is famous for. Pricing the car is unknown, but you can bet this car will be exceptionally expensive likely in the high $200,000 or low $300,000 range.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
