It’s only three years old, but the Ferrari F12 has been long forgotten, being eclipsed by more traditional supercars like the 458 Italia, 488 GTB, and the ridiculously powerful, ridiculously named Ferrari LaFerrari. Come 2016, the F12 is set to make a comeback, with Maranello working on improving its power output and driving dynamics.
While a power hike seems hardly necessary, considering the F12’s 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine already produces a mind-numbing 730hp, the folks at Ferrari are keen on adding to that number. Not satisfied with a mere power hike, the F12 is also set to be lightened, and feature chassis tweaks to increase its agility and sharpness.
Ferrari is not the type of company who does facelifts, meaning the improved F12 will carry a different name, the F12 M. The addition of an ‘M’ badge to the car (standing for Modificata) is nothing new, with previous front-mounted V12 prancing horses like the 456 and 575 having been gifted the moniker to denote the upgrades.
Aesthetically, the Ferrari F12 M is not expected to feature many changes apart from additional aero improvements and intakes. What will change is the use of materials all around the car. Tech updates are also set to be made. We hope to see this beauty in the flesh real soon. Until then, stay tuned for updates.
