Ferrari SP12 EC has been officially unveiled.
Based on 458 Italia and inspired by 512 BB, the SP12 EC was ordered by famous musician Eric Clapton - therefore the letters EC in the car's name. It was designed by Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and engineers from Marnello.

From the outside, car is equipped with new carbon fiber front spoiler, side skirt, rear diffuser and rear wing (or spoiler lip). From other details, new kit features things like carbon fiber covers on side mirrors, front wing blades, ventilation grilles in the fenders with black rear lights, black side markers and black auxiliary LED brake light.
Tuning a Ferrari... expensive, but not uncommon.
There is a new tuning package for Ferrari 599 GTO by Romeo Ferraris tuner.
For achieving the power they imagined, they will install high-flow air filter and new sport exhaust system on your 599 GTO. This will resolve in engine producing 676 hp and 633 Nm of torque. This is 15 hp and 13 Nm more then the standard 599 GTO.
There is also Stage 2 package for even more power, if you don't find 676 hp satisfying. With diffrent exhaust system and ECU remap, you can get 700 hp in your super car. This adds 40 hp and 48 Nm of torque to 6.0-liter V12 engine.

Withough jibberish, here is Ferrari's most powerful car up to date, known as F12 Berlinetta.
Ferrari California will get upgrades in this year, both on performance and body sections.
4.3-litre V8 engine will be given another 30 hp to the standard 490 hp. The ECU has been optimised and it has been gives completly new exhaust manifolds, so the power is evenly supplied through the whole rev range and this will make this cabrio-crusier more daily useable for the normal drivers.
On a day three, fastest vehicle on track was yet again, Mercedes. Nico Rosberg drove 118 laps an set time of 1m17.613s which was fastest time set on this year's testing in Jerez, remembering that they still drive with the car from last season.
Behind him was Roman Grosjean in Lotus who was 0.8s slower. Roman drove just 1 lap less than Nico in Mercedes. Behind them were Seb Vettel in Red Bull, Lewis Hamilton in McLaren and Jean-Eric Vergne in Toro Roso.

Leaked details by Autosprint include drawings by technical illustrator Giorgio Piola, which are reportedly "inspired by (the) McLaren" of last year. New F12, or F2012, as it should be named, will have "many other features that should make it really extreme", sad the weekly.
"Some people called it bad after seeing the shapes, probably because of the hump on the nose, but the final version should be smooth." - as we find out at Autosprint website.
