F12 Berlinetta Ferrari by Chandler Rendl

1 Dec

In the article “Ferrari’s Fastest” the author Basem Wasef uses facts and time trials to prove the F12 Berlinetta is one of the fastest track Ferraris manufactured. You car lovers out there that know Ferrari, are likely thinking to yourselves, “The Enzo is the fastest Ferrari manufactured”, but no, I’m here to inform you that the F12 Berlinetta beat the Enzo on the storied Fiorano test track by 2 full seconds. The v12 800hp Ferrari Enzo is built purely for top speed while the v12 730hp F12 Berlinetta is built for corners and track racing. I believe I speak for everyone when I say the Enzo would beat the F12 Berlinetta in a drag race, but in any street or track race, the F12 should win.

This new addition to the Ferrari family will shock other high performance car companies because of the diversity and strength this machine brings to the table. The F12 is lined with the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that grip the road without any rear tire wheel spin in sport mode. Now take that sport mode and traction control off and watch that 730hp F12 wrap itself around a corner with tremendous force and in complete control.

With a very high performance and fast car comes a time you will need to stop. Now with Ferraris new abrasive brake pads that produces a 5% reduction in braking distance, this car becomes a lot safer when traveling in the higher speeds. Ferrari produced these speed-sensing cooling vents and a prefill function technology to keep the pads from touching while driving, resulting in better fuel efficiency.

Overall, Ferrari has yet again; gone to the next level of high performance cars and showed us today that pure speed isn’t everything in a ground breaking car. It’s the little things in a car that can move you from second place to first.

    I thought you used very good details about the Ferrari and how it is made to win races on the track but maybe go into a little more detail about the track races between the Ferrari and the f12 berlinetta and the times and details for those races.

    first off wish I was at the track when this happened! I do agree with julie it is a very informative article , but if you give added details about the race will give readers a better taste for what it was like to actually be watching these great machines go head to head.

    I believe you proved your point with all the specific details about the Berlinetta. You also showed both sides of the argument by saying that the enzo would win in a drag race but not a street race. The concluding paragraph ended the paper very well by stating the Ferrari makes the fastes cars regardless.

    I think you did a very good job describing the differences between the Berlinetta and the Enzo. I also liked how you showed both sides to the argument like what Kyle said. I liked the use of details proving that the Berlinetta is a better car than the Enzo

    This is now my dream car. I don’t need to even look up pictures of the car. By the way you described the car it looks beautiful.
