Being the king of car speed and power is tough. Each year the competitors are catching up to your realm, so you have to constantly advance yourself so you won’t get dethrone. Ferrari is known to build the most powerful and fastest cars in the auto world, but each year companies like Porsche, Bugatti, and etc. are either catching up or surpassing Ferrari. 2.21.2012
So what to do if you were once the king of the road? Simply, make more power and try to go faster, and that is exactly what Ferrari did. The company has been working with a new supercar called the Ferrari F620 GT. This car will be the most powerful supercar that Ferrari has ever produced. Instead of the usual rear-mounted engine, the Ferrari F620 GT will be equipped with a front-mounted V12 engine with a rear-wheel drive. The Ferrari F620 GT will replace the Ferarri 599.
As for now, not much we can tell about the horsepower of the Ferrari F620 GT, but we expect it to make around 750 – 850 horsepower. We will know soon when it debuts at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in a couple of weeks from now. In the meantime, check out its quick introduction video below.
Ferrari will officially unveil the new F620 GT on February 29th, and already, a few more images of it leaked on Web along with its technical specifications as well.
From what we’ve gathered, the Ferrari F620 GT is a front-engine/rear-wheel drive supercar. It is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine producing about 740 horsepower and 690 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful V12 engine ever produced by Ferrari.
The new Ferrari F620 GT will be the successor to the 599 GTB, which is lighter, lower and shorter than the 599 GTB it’s replacing. With a powerful engine and a lighter curb weight, the Ferrari F620 GT can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and 100 mph in 8.3 seconds with a redline reaching 8,700 rpm before all hell breaks loose.
