Ferrari F12 GTO, spy photos – Some months ago anticipammo the existence of an extreme project, reserved for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. It turned out the name Ferrari F12 GTO, initial identification in the collective historical and stylistic perfection made car: the 250 GTO of the early sixties. Then he went back to the mid-eighties for the 288, more recently we have found on the 599, the Gran Turismo Approved.
The technical innovations will look mainly to make more comfortable the F12 uses to the limit, on track, despite being a project approved for road use. But how? On this point, the initial rumors remain unchanged.
Ferrari F12 GTO Specs
Strong weight reduction, use of lightweight materials not only for the body, aerodynamic refinement and, above all, a more powerful engine. On this front has gained credibility the option to retain the naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12, increased in the cavalry than 740 offered by Berlinetta: between 40 and 50 extra horses, those expected.
With the Frankfurt Motor Show at the gates, the design has no secrets. It must be said that the presentation at the September seems unlikely, because the stage of the German festival will have a protagonist who looks for its space, Ferrari 488 Spider, so the New F12 GTO could be postponed to March 2016, Geneva destination.
Ferrari F12 GTO DESIGN
Those who emerged as graphic illustrations in June, are confirmed in the samples in test drive around Maranello. The front features a new grille, wide at the top, flush with the muzzle, narrow at the bottom, where the splitter (with a vertical external fins to direct streams) seems to conceal a sort of drawer.
Two air intakes to cool the brakes complete the whole of the front, the ends of the grid. Other actions involving air vents on the bonnet and the Aerobridge, with a carbon element and a blow unprecedented.
The alloy wheels have an original shape, but the substance is hidden elsewhere, from miniskirts blade, with a modified form in front of the rear wheels, as well as the three openings on the wheel and the area behind the windows changed. At the rear space for a speaker by vertical profiles pushed more than the F12 Berlinetta (which has active aerodynamics flap with horizontal and vertical bulkheads much shorter). It also changes the bumper and the area above the tailpipes. The most observant will note also how different the rear window, more tapered toward the tail.
