The 2025 Ferrari 12Cilindri Is The Prancing Horse's Newest V12 Supercar

Ferrari has unveiled the latest chapter in its V12-powered supercars with the Ferrari 12Cilindri. Inspired by legendary grand tourers of the 1950s and 60s, this mid-front-engined Ferrari combines performance with elegance and versatility.

Going straight to the point, the Ferrari 12Cilindri is powered by a normally-aspirated 830-horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine with a 9,500-rpm redline. Its peak torque is rated at 678 Nm, with 80 percent of it available at just 2,500 rpm. This gives it a 0 to 100 km/h time of 2.9 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in less than 7.9 seconds, and a top speed of 340 km/h. Apart from a modified software, the V12 adopts titanium con rods, revised alloy for the pistons, and a rebalanced crankshaft. This is connected to an 8-speed DCT.

Penned at the Ferrari Styling Center, the Ferrari 12Cilindri marks a clear departure from past mid-front-engined V12 with its clean lines and a functional approach to form. It relies heavily on underbody aerodynamics solutions and instead of adopting a rear spoiler, designers have used two active flaps that are integrated with the rear screen. This allows it switch between Low Drag or High Downforce. Standard are forged 21-inch wheels with 275/35R21 tires at the front and 315/35R21 tires at the back.

A spider (or convertible if you prefer the generic term), is available alongside the coupe and its folding hard top disappears into the trunk in about 14 seconds.

Inside, the Ferrari 12Cilindri continues with the brand’s dual cockpit architecture seen also in the Roma and Purosangue. For the 12Cilindri, however, the interior has been split into three levels with the use of color and materials to clearly define each area. The driver benefits from Ferrari’s newest HMI interface with a central 10.25-inch touchscreen, a 15.6-inch driver display, and a 8.8-inch “co-pilot” display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard equipment, while a Burmester 15-speaker sound system is available as an option.

Helping put all that power to the pavement, the Ferrari 12Cilindri comes with the latest chassis innovations including the introduction of brake-by-wire. It also happens to keep the four-wheel independent steering system. It also sports near-ideal weight distribution—48.4 percent front and 51.6 percent rear.
