How can you improve upon the stunning F12 Berlinetta? These tuners think they have the answer.
There are cars that come off the production line aftermarket firms shouldn't mess with. Some would say the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is one of them. Yet in its relatively brief lifespan, tuning houses across the globe have been quick to get their oily hands on the Italian supercar to stamp their own mark on Ferrari's flagship front-engined sportscar. In fact, we've come across enough styling and performance packages for the V12-powered supercar that we have been able to narrow them down to five. Check them out below.
DMC's F12 program, dubbed the Spia, includes a carbon-fiber body kit made up of a new hood, front splitter, updated side skirts, rear diffuser, rear spoiler, and roof-mounted air scoop. DMC also added a new set of forged alloy wheels staggered 21/22 inches front/rear. Although no specifics were given, customers can supposedly upgrade the interior with more Italian leather, carbon fiber and a sports steering wheel. The F12's 6.3-liter V12 has also received a power boost thanks to a new titanium exhaust that helps bump output to 764 horsepower. As a result, the tuner claims the Spia F12 has a top speed of almost 217 mph.
Wheelsandmore created two performance upgrades for the F12. Stage 1 bumps power from 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque to 765 hp and 531 lb-ft via an ECU upgrade, while a remote-controlled stainless-steel exhaust that can be increased to eardrum-bursting levels at the touch of a button in the Stage 2 package further increases output to 785 hp and 538 lb-ft. The tuner also developed a set of handcrafted 6Sporz2 ultralight forged wheels for the F12, staggered 21/22 inches front/rear. Available in a range of finishes, the set on this F12 sport a classic matte black finish.
Dubbed the Stallone, Mansory's aftermarket program for the supercar includes a redesigned hood and carbon-fiber aero kit, complete with a new bumper, front-lip and trunk-lid spoilers, side skirts, vents, rear diffuser and new set of alloys also staggered 21/22 inches front/rear. Mansory then went to work on the cabin, swathing it in red and black leather with a swerve stitching pattern and carbon-fiber surfaces, before adding a new flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum pedals and illuminated door sills. The German tuner also modified the F12's 6.3-liter V12 via a reworked ECU and new exhaust. Together these new elements increase output to 764 hp and 535 lb-ft of torque.
When renowned Ferrari tuner Novitec Rosso got hold of Maranello's new V12 super-GT, it added more power for a higher top speed, a new set of wheels mounted to an upgraded suspension and a revised interior. By remapping the ignition and injection, Novitec upped output to 763 hp and raised the redline to 8,900 rpm for a new top speed of 214 mph. Novitec also fitted the F12 with its NF4 five double-spoke wheels, once again staggered 21/22 inches front/rear, while its in-house sport springs takes the Berlinetta up to 40 mm closer to the tarmac. The German tuner offers upgrades to the interior too, with a variety of carbon fiber and Alcantara- or leather-trimmed components.
Tokyo-based tuner Office-K's F12 project includes minimal updates for maximum effect. The first addition was to give the Prancing Horse some new shoes, which they did with a set of Forgiato F2.14 rims staggered at - you guessed it - 21/22 inches front/rear. Finished in gloss black with red and carbon-fiber accents, these five-spoke alloys were originally made for the Bugatti Veyron but don't look out of place on the F12. Office-K then used a carbon-fiber wrap to accent certain areas of the V12-powered Ferrari including the rear diffuser, front air intakes, side sills and rear lights.
