Ferrari F12berlinetta Named Robb Report 2014 Car Of The Year
If you are one of the rarified individuals that spends your time deciding which six-figure watch to wear to work today, you are likely a huge fan of the Robb Report; the magazine dedicated to only the most luxurious and interesting spectacles of consumerism, culture and travel in the world. Now in its 21st year, the Robb Report Car of the Year award has become quite the top prize for high-end automakers like Aston Martin, Bentley and Lamborghini. The winner this year, chosen by the largest percentage of voters ever, was the incredible Ferrari F12berlinetta.
The Robb Report Club, a collection of readers and top executives made up the 100-member-strong judging panel to choose between a collection of machines that included the likes of the Aventador Roadster, M6 Gran Coupe, SRT Viper and much more. Hands down though, the judging team agreed that Ferrari’s monstrous V-12 power, exquisite road-handling abilities and high level of design and craftsmanship held it aloft the competition.

The F12berlinetta is the latest range topping GT car from the Italian company. Built as a replacement for the aging 599, the F12 is a V-12 powered grand tourer that is created to combine the greatest performance with an unmatched level of comfort and refinement.
This machine is powered a 6.2-liter V-12 that produces 740 horsepower, making this the most powerful naturally aspirated V-12 on sale. Thanks to all that power, the F12 is the fastest production Ferrari you can buy, until the LaFerrari goes on sale, that is.
For that special combination of all-out performance and unprecedented luxury that only the Italians seem to manage, the Ferrari F12berlinetta is the best of the breed.
