One look at the 2013 Ferrari Mansory F12 La Revoluzione and a person is forced to catch their breath. I mean, for real, this is a vehicle that is way above and beyond even being called a ‘car’; that seems like such an understatement. Firstly, its overall appearance is one that comes straight from the future but above that, this car was made for high-performance activities, and it shows. But let’s face it: we can sit and gaze at photos of Ferrari’s all day long, and still not know a damn thing about them. With that being said, I think it’s important to take a closer look at what, exactly, this car is capable of…not to mention what preceded its concept and design. So, without further ado, let’s delve into the world of Ferrari and its incredible 2013 Mansory F12 La Revoluzione. Not only will we learn a thing or two about the iconic company Ferrari, but we’ll also get to cast our eyes upon one dynamic and beautiful ‘car’ (as shameful as that word may be to this work of art…).
Ferrari and the History of the Mansory F12 La Revoluzione
Technically an F12 Berlinetta, or at least, descendent of one, the Mansory La Revoluzione from 2003 has proven itself to be one of Ferrari’s most beautiful and performance based automobiles to date, though some may say the appearance causes the public to overrate it in accordance with the old ‘judging a book by its cover’ adage, and there are a number of reasons why. To begin with, the appearance of this particular Ferrari seems to scream ‘future!’ The smooth lines and curves, the paint job that lends a three-dimensional feel like no other on Earth, and of course, the inner mechanics, which have the capacity to take us where only we could long to go, make this automobile a shoe in for ‘Super car’ status. Yes, that is what it correctly falls under, in my opinion. Quite frankly, I have never observed a vehicle that made me want to…so much (we can skip the details here, of course.
As for history, well, this particular vehicle is from the Berlinetta line, and that is a well deserved credit. But until one is more familiar with that line, they really cannot tell so easily. Yet, while there are so many differences between the two, one is not able to easily tell them with the naked eye, other than aesthetically speaking. After all , the Berlinetta and the Mansory La Revoluzione are two different vehicles, and there are no two ways about it.
So, without further ado, here are some of the specs and features of this vehicle, which will easily clarify its iconic status for you. Hold on to your seats, because this car is quite likely to blow you out of the spot you are sitting in. Enjoy the ride…
The 2003 Ferrari Mansory F12 La Revoluzione: Specs and Features
To make this fantasy, yet true, car a bit more realistic to our readers, here are the specs and features of it:
- Weight: 3307 lbs (1500 kg)
- Top speed of 230 mph (370 kp/h)
- Displacement: 6262 cc (6.3 liter)
- 0-62 mph (0-100 kp/h) in 2.9 seconds
- 800 hp per tonne
- Power & Torque at 1200 hp / 882 kW, or 890 nM @ 0 rpm
- 21” rims at front; 22” rims at rear
- Carbon Fiber body
- Astounding red-on-black interior that is outstanding, and commands attention from each and every seat in the car.
- V12 engine with two turbos
- Brand-new, never before used exhaust system
- Power reaching up to 1200 hp
- Torque at 656 lb. / ft
It’s the interior that has undergone the most major of changes, to be honest, with contrasting red and white set against each other starkly on everything from the seats to the gear shiftier to the steering wheel tend to keep the eyes sharp once it lures in the looks it so well deserves. It is the contrasts, and the way they stay true to Ferrari and the external color scheme that make the interior such a thing of longing. To see it the way that it is narrows it down to being ‘the very stuff cars like this should be made of.
So, What’s So Special About the Mansory F12?
This vehicle is easily considered one of the best super cars to exist in the world, and there are several reasons for this. As a ‘grand tourer’ that is rear-wheel drive and front engine, we have to consider how it runs with such a weight discrepancy. Well, due to the actual layout of the machine, this technicality has never seemed to be a problem in the last sixteen years. Those who have purchase the vehicle have really never voiced any complaints regarding control, engine power, or gasoline mileage, and as far as handling goes, well, it seems to speak for itself. There are reasons it has been referred to as a super car for so long.
But now, when so much technology has taken us such a great distance, is the La Revoluzione really all that it is, or was, cracked up to be? I would have to say so, and in more ways than one. With a striking aesthetic and a level of power that floors even the most prolific of hot rods, the La Revoluzione has held its on since its initial release, and it wouldn’t surprise me if it continued along the same path for many years to come.
Summing It Up…
In a nutshell, the 2013 Ferrari Mansory F12 La Revoluzione is an incredible car that may have been built ahead of its time, but has maintained an outstanding reputation throughout all the competition and hard times. It runs like a madman, looks like a beauty queen, and is well deserving of all the attention it gets, even amid all the other vehicles that really don’t even come close to holding a candle to it.
For those that own this particular Ferrari? I’ll bet you wouldn’t trade it for the world. For those who don’t, I would be willing to be you will come across one eventually that will not only meet our standards, but clarify to you on a first hand basis all that we have been discussing with you here.
So get out there and look around. Find one to drive, if you cant afford to buy one. You will be blown away by the beauty and smooth capabilities of it. It will be worth every single second that you spend looking for it, believe me. You will simply love it. Take care of yourself on the road during those times of laughter and cruising, and enjoy the looks of envy that this vehicle brings to you so freely and unselfishly.
