The 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is an amazingly impressive grand tourer, with stunning looks and ferocious performance.

The F12 Berlinetta captures the best of the classic front-engined Ferraris -- proportion, elegance, performance -- while executing each detail in the most modern means possible.

Sitting at the pinnacle of Ferrari's range (with the exception of the LaFerrari hypercar), the F12 Berlinetta's $330,000 price tag is as massive as the car itself is impressive. In sight, sound, touch, and feedback -- Ferrari hits all its marks in this ferociously powerful yet fantastically refined super-tourer.

The F12's long, low body is wrapped in dramatically swooping lines that rise over the front fender and dive down, then back up along the side. The nose is aggressive and highly detailed, with a clear mix of aerodynamics and aesthetics. Inside, the FF's cabin is wrapped in luxurious leathers and high-tech style, its F1-inspired steering wheel with "manettino" controls giving it a racing-inspired touch.

Under the hood lies a fierce 6.3-liter V-12 rated at 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. Ferrari claims 80 percent of peak torque is available from just 2,500 rpm, aiding the car's rocket-like acceleration: from a stop, 60 mph arrives in just 3.1 seconds. Top speed is somewhere north of 211 mph. The potent V-12 redlines at 8,700 rpm.

Features and equipment are what you want them to be, especially if you engage Ferrari's personalization service, Tailor Made. Colors, materials, options, technology -- you name it, Ferrari will likely do it. For the right price.

Space is ample in the front seat, and while Ferrari isn't known for making the most accommodating seats in the industry, they're generally good for most body types. Cargo space isn't abundant, though; the F12 is best suited to short overnight trips. Ferrari-loving golfers will want to consider the FF instead.

We haven't had a chance to get behind the wheel of the F12 Berlinetta yet, but we'll update this space when we do.
