2016 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs. Its Competition

2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta offers nearly unmatched power, and is backed by the brand’s legendary racing and street car history.

As a result, few cars truly equal the F12, but there are several cars that might attract buyers interested in a super-performance coupe.

Among those is the Audi R8 is another alternative, with the advantage of quattro all-wheel drive, a range of engine options, and a much smaller price tag; at the same time, the R8 lacks the F12’s curb appeal, exotic feel, and cachet.

The Bentley Continental GT Speed might make a similar argument for luxury, performance, and cachet, but it can’t match the raw passion of the F12.

Ferrari’s own FF is a real alternative, capturing all of the Ferrari-ness of the F12, but adding the utility of greater cargo space and all-wheel drive, if at slightly lower power and performance levels.

The 2016 Dodge Viper SRT also packs nearly as much power, more torque, and a decidedly unique style, but it lacks much of the refinement and luxury of the Ferrari.
