Drive a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta On a Racetrack!

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the most powerful and highest performance front-engine Ferrari ever made. That’s quite a statement when considering the long, and legendary, list of front-engine V12 cars to come from Ferrari. The direct injection, 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 731 horsepower at 8,250 RPM and 509 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to move its 3,586 pound mass to 60 MPH from a standing start in 3.1 seconds. Top speed doesn’t come until you’re hurtling along at 211 MPH.  more on the Ferrari F12 >

Shorter, lower and narrower than its predecessor, the 599 GTB Fiorano, the new F12 Berlinetta is more than a design success, it's a performance virtuoso and that is no accident. At 20 percent more torsionally rigid than its predecessor, the major focus in structural design is placing the major masses in the best locations. This improves the chassis' dynamic behavior at speed, in corners and under braking; no easy feat. The engine is lower in the chassis, netting a lower center of gravity. A new rear suspension / gearbox unit enables a smaller rear end. Weight distribution is therefore optimized for a slight rear weight bias, at 46 percent front / 54 percent rear.

The F12 Berlinetta also uses innovative materials and technologies new to the automotive industry. A spaceframe chassis and bodyshell employs more than twelve alloys to shave off 154 pounds when compared to the 599 GTB Fiorano.

Behind the wheel, this front engine car gives nothing away to its mid-engine supercar counterparts. Despite its dimensions, the car feels smaller and tighter from the driver’s seat. The steering is precise and lightening fast. It may not have any wings, but there’s an abundance of downforce produced by its deliciously swoopy shape. As a result, it sticks though corners with enormous grip. At turn-in there’s just enough understeer to help find the limit, but squeeze on the power at the apex and push through the understeer to induce a four-wheel drift to the track out point.

Front-engine sports cars are often regarded as long-distance grand tourers suitable for a gentleman in his tuxedo and a lady in her stilettos. While this is no less true of the F12, it is also no less true that this car loves the racetrack, so much so that a tux can easily be traded for a nomex driver suit, the stilettos for thin-soled driving shoes and nothing else about the car need change.

Luigi Chinetti, Piero Taruffi, Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill all piloted front-engine V12 Ferraris around a racetrack. Add your name to the list.

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Any car that has over 700 horsepower demands respect. But, the Ferrari F12 is such a well designed and advanced car that driving it around the racetrack is both a pleasure and a thrill. Like all current Ferraris, the F12 enjoys being driven fast. The feedback through the steering wheel, the urgency of the engine, the speed of the gear shifts and the confidence under braking are everything a driver needs while on the racetrack. Plus, there’s the sound of that magnificent V12 in front of you.

I wouldn't change a thing. The service people and instructors were top notch. I was a little hesitant and the instructor pushed me beyond what I thought I could do. I so appreciated it. Because of him I learned a lot in a short period of time and decided to by a car and race it to gain more experience and its a lot of fun. Without you I would not have had the confidence. Thank you so much. Next time I am in vegas I will be seeing you again. If any of you are ever in colorado and need anything please let me know I would love to repay your hospitality.

The booking process was better than before- and fast. The trainers were excellent. Better than I've seen before. And better use of our time. Just keeps getting better and better! Cars were marginally better. I guess it's a little limiting to branch out as you have such a high percentage of top cars! The f12 was very nice. Would be cool if you had an ATOM. The video is getting pretty overpriced, but delivery via the net is a huge improvement! You seem to have your act together. Very impressive! See you next time! ***

The time I spent with the fine folk at Exotics Racing was an awesome experience! From the moment I entered their clean, well-laid out facility to the time I drove out of their parking lot, it was clear to me that they prioritize customer service and satisfaction. Every person with whom I came into contact was cheerful, friendly, and focused on my enjoyment. The instructors are engaging, knowledgeable, and highly focused on each customer getting the most out of their rides, whether that's a fast lap time or just the fun of driving an exotic car around the track. It was truly one of the best customer-service experiences I've ever had, anywhere, bar none. The people, facilities, and cars at Exotics Racing are top-shelf. Don't waste your money elsewhere - come see these people. You'll be glad you did.

Since 2011 Once a year I went to Exotics Racing Las Vegas to have great fun. The Exotic cars collection always updated. Booking process was always smooth. The Instructors were great, they let me drive the cars to the car traction control limit. Last April I booked the EXR LV2 race car for 12 laps. It was a great fun and experience with it. So I booked for 12 laps again on the spot right away. Race car means no traction control!!. I will book it again next time.
