Ferrari unveils stunning new 12Cilindri supercar ahead of Miami Grand Prix

This is the new Ferrari 12Cilindri, and the first thing we need to point out is, as the name suggests, it’s powered by a good ol’ V12.

And it’s a beast, too.


Unveiled ahead of the upcoming Miami GP as a successor to the 812 Superfast, the 12Cilindri is Ferrari’s newest flagship 12-cylinder supercar.

In fact, that’s what the name means, because 12Cilindri (Dodici Cilindri) is Italian for 12 cylinders.

And there’s something else to point out because there’s a coupe version and a Spider version, too.

Inside, you’ll find the layout that Ferrari has been using and perfecting since the 458 Italia.

There’s the ‘busy’ steering wheel, with a lot of dials and switches, including the ‘Manettino’ to change the driving mode.

And you’ve got three displays: the instrument cluster, the passenger display, and then – of course – the main 10.25-inch infotainment screen.

Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna recently spoke about a potential electric supercar, and he said the new car ‘won’t be quiet’ like a Tesla.

Fortunately, that’s a conversation that we can happily postpone because – with its massive meaty V12 – the new 12Cilindri is anything but quiet.

And the noise it makes, albeit enhanced by all kinds of valves and software, is not artificial.

It comes from a 6.5-liter heart producing 819 horsepower, the Ferrari 12Cilindri does 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and 0-125 mph (200 km/h) in 7.8 seconds.

The top speed is 217 mph – or 350 km/h.

The engine – it goes without saying – is at the front.

This layout dictates the shape and proportions, and the 12Cilindri comes in with a sleek, streamlined body, even though the wheelbase is actually marginally shorter than that of the 812.

At the back, you’ve got a sizable 270-liter trunk, which is also where the hard-top roof goes (in 14 seconds) when you want to drive with the wind in your hair.

The 21-inch aluminum wheels complete the look.

Production is not limited, and deliveries are scheduled for late 2024 for the coupe, and for early 2025 for the Spider.
