Maranello’s new two-seater berlinetta powered by a mid-front-mounted, naturally-aspirated V12, the Ferrari 12Cilindri is the perfect embodiment of the Prancing Horse DNA, offering incomparable performance and handling with sophisticated, sculptural design. Aimed at connoisseurs of the iconic V12 engine, the 830-cv Ferrari 12Cilindri is inspired by the Ferrari Gran Turismo cars of the 1950s and ‘60s, and delivers race-bred driving thrills combined with versatility. The 12Cilindri is the natural evolution of the company’s uncompromising powertrain philosophy, which has been thrilling Prancing Horse enthusiasts since the very first Ferrari engine to roar its way through the factory gates in Maranello in 1947. An effortless combination of elegance, versatility and performance, the 12Cilindri continues that unique legacy, elevating it towards new standards in performance, comfort, and design.


With the Ferrari 12Cilindri, Flavio Manzoni and the design team at Ferrari Centro Stile set out to radically transform the stylistic codes of Ferrari’s previous mid-front-engined V12s. Clean lines dominate the car’s geometry, underscoring the volumes that make up a seamlessly interconnected whole. The ultra-clean flanks sweep back along the entire car from a dihedral section. Although retaining a signature Ferrari sensuality, the wings have been sculpted with extreme geometric precision: all the lines are the result of intersections between the volumes and a more functional approach to form has been taken that echoes nostalgia. The muscular rear wing is imposing, yet also perfectly controlled geometrically. On the front wing, that muscular tension extends slightly, coming to rest along the flank and further accentuating the car’s monolithic aesthetic. The 12Cilindri’s silhouette exudes sportiness and class: simple yet harmonious lines feature an integrated active aerodynamic device to guarantee peerless performance, a front-hinged bonnet that exalts the view of the engine bay, and the two twin tailpipes that have become a signature of Ferrari’s 12-cylinder cars.


The Ferrari 12Cilindri’s F140HD engine is the latest development of the iconic V12 that laid the foundations for the Maranello legend, in this version unleashing 830 cv and with maximum revs rising to a heady 9500 rpm, and is partnered with the eight-speed Dual Clutch Transmission that received such an unanimously rapturous welcome on other cars in the range. The engine features modified components and software, some of which were already adopted on the special series 812 Competizione, ensuring it tops its category in terms of performance. To allow the V12 to rev so high, the engineers worked to reduce the weight and inertia of the engine’s components, including adopting titanium con rods, lighter aluminium alloy pistons, and the introduction of a rebalanced crankshaft. Most of the modifications focused on optimising torque delivery in all operating conditions. The result is an engine with exhilaratingly smooth, seamless response, that delivers peak power at the red line. An innovative software strategy was developed, providing a truly unique sense of driving exhilaration through a crescendo of never-ending acceleration and power and the very purest notes of the signature Ferrari sound, all the way to the limiter.

Chassis & Dynamics

The Ferrari 12Cilindri is designed for connoisseurs with a very clear vision of what Ferrari’s DNA has always been, truly making it a car for the few. Ferrari’s engineers sought to produce a sober, elegant car without compromising on performance. Boasting the very state of the art in front-engined berlinetta dynamic controls, including elements honed from other cars in range like the 296 GTB, the 12Cilindri features the four-wheel independent steering (4WS) that debuted on the special series 812 Competizione, whilst the rear-wheel steering has innovative mechanical characteristics that significantly improve precision of control of the position of each single actuator, giving faster axle response time and consequently improved responsiveness through corners. Optimum handling is also ensured thanks to a near-ideal weight distribution, and the car’s responsiveness also benefits from the 20-mm reduction in the wheelbase compared to the 812 Superfast. The Ferrari 12Cilindri’s all-aluminium chassis is completely new: specific attention was focused on the geometry of cast components such as the shock towers and A and C pillars, to improve torsional rigidity whilst simultaneously reducing weight. In the Low Drag position, many elements are devised to be flush with the bodywork, optimising the car’s aerodynamics whilst providing a clean design, whilst in high downforce configuration, the 12Cilindri generates maximum downforce and guarantees that the car is aerodynamically balanced. The heat dissipation requirements of the engine and ancillaries demanded a redesign of the car’s entire cooling system which resulted in front underbody evacuation being optimised, with no fewer than seven openings in the front bumper.


The Ferrari 12Cilindri’s cockpit guarantees superb comfort for both driver and passenger, even on long journeys: its feeling of airiness and space is heightened still further by a glass roof, prestigious materials and a central display in addition to one for the driver and a third ahead of the passenger. The interior style takes its inspiration from the Prancing Horse’s dual-cockpit architecture, used in recent years for the Ferrari Roma, Roma Spider and Purosangue. The 12Cilindri’s cabin has an almost-symmetrical structure comprising two modules for driver and passenger and offering an astonishing standard of comfort and involvement in the driving experience.

This fine 1:8 scale model of the Ferrari 12Cilindri, finished in Rosso Imola with a Blu Sterling interior, has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using confidential CAD data supplied by the team at Ferrari Centro Stile allowing us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. It has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.

The Ferrari 12Cilindri is limited to just 199 pieces.
