A clamping force on the coupe, increased compared to its predecessor, once by 76% (up to 123 kg at a speed of 200 km/h). To achieve such performance was due to the technology Aero Bridge, redirects the flow of air from the side of the front air intake through the wheel arches and the air vent of in the front wings on the sides and then on the hind wings.
Another aerodynamic trick allows you to increase the cooling efficiency of carbon-ceramic brakes, when the temperature of the latter rises to too high values. In this case, additional air intakes open, directing the air to the brakes. By its dimensions Ferrari F12 berlinetta is slightly inferior to its predecessor – the length of the new items is 4618 mm, width – 1942 mm, height – 1 273 mm.
