The classic Ferrari F12berlinetta is a remarkable car in many ways. This particular instance has received some extreme tweaks, including two huge turbos protruding from the hood. Moreover, a thorough redesign of the transmission gave the Italian sports car 1,500 horsepower.
TV host and mechanic Aaron Kaufman modified this F12berlinetta and showcased it on the Daily Driven Exotics YouTube channel.
For the car, he paid $ 300,000, after which he proceeded to install the turbo. Work began in 2020 and was recently completed. The Italian GT debuted in 2017 with a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 producing 730 horsepower and 690 Nm of torque.
Up to a hundred such a car accelerated in 3.1 seconds, and its maximum speed was 340 km / h. The biggest challenge Kaufman faced was the lack of space in the engine compartment for the turbines. Her solution was to make slots in the hood.
The goal of the project is to obtain a twin-turbo power unit with a capacity of about 1,500 hp.
This is more than double the recoil of the original production car. The twin-turbo Ferrari debuted in Santa Ana, California on July 19. This F12 isn’t the only turbocharged engine in the world.
In 2013, the tuning studio Mansory made a single copy with a twin-turbo installation.
Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that the most powerful electric car Tesla Model S Plaid is being tested at the Nurburgring with two different types of steering wheel. At the same time, Elon Musk himself said that the S Plaid will not receive a traditional round steering wheel.
