The original Ferrari F12berlinetta is a beautiful grand tourer. This one received extreme tuning which includes two huge turbos protruding from the hood. The powertrain redesign gives this prancing horse 1,500 horsepower (1,119 kilowatts).
TV personality and mechanic Aaron Kaufman modified this F12berlinetta and showed it on the Exotic everyday Youtube channel. He bought the Ferrari for $ 300,000. After having driven him on a karting track, he decided to undertake the installation of the turbo. Work began in 2020 and recently ended.
The Italian GT debuted in 2017 with a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 developing 730 horsepower (544 kilowatts) and 509 pound-feet (690 Newton-meters) of torque. This allowed acceleration to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.1 seconds and a claimed top speed of 211 miles per hour (340 kilometers per hour).
The biggest problem Kaufman faced was the lack of space in the engine compartment for the installation of the turbos. To assemble the, he had to cut the hood and still had work to keep the components in their original position as much as possible.
The aim of the project is for the twin-turbo powertrain to develop around 1,500 hp. This is more than twice as much as the original production car.
The twin-turbo Ferrari made its debut in Santa Ana, Calif. On July 19, and video of the event, which was attended by a large audience, revealed a decidedly different sound than the original F12berlinetta, at both because of the turbochargers and the racing exhaust system. People from Exotic everyday will not miss the opportunity to test the car on the chain in the near future.
This F12 model is not the only one in the world to be equipped with a turbocharged engine. In 2013, Mansory made a unique example with a twin-turbo configuration. An American tuner also did this by installing the turbos under the engine.
