Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre under Flavio Manzoni in collaboration with Pininfarina and officially unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is one of the best Ferrari models to date. Featuring a front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout and a sleek aerodynamic design, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was the successor to the Ferrari 599 GTB and the predecessor to the current Ferrari V12 flagship, the 812 Superfast. During its five year production life the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was the recipient of numerous automotive related awards including the 2013 Engine of the Year Award and it was named “The Supercar of the Year 2012” by automotive magazine Top Gear.
Despite how impressive the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is to most petrolheads out there, some F12 Berlinetta owners wanted more style and performance from their vehicles and therefore they had to take a trip into the diverse world of aftermarket tuning. Over the years we at EnZari have come across our fair share of tuned/customised Ferrari F12 Berlinetta’s, with most of these tuned examples coming from top aftermarket tuning firms like Novitec, Wheelsandmore, DMC, Hennessey and Mansory just to mention a few. However, if a tuned Ferrari F12 Berlinetta from one of the above mentioned tuning firms does not quite suit your taste, don’t sweat because we may just have the perfect tuned Ferrari F12 Berlinetta for you.
This is it, what you are looking at ladies and gentlemen is a tastefully modified 2016 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and this specific vehicle is the work of Scottsdale, Arizona based aftermarket tuning firm Creative Bespoke and it is currently listed for sale on eBay. According to Creative Bespoke, this exact 2016 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was built to be showcased at SEMA and if you attended last year’s event you will have no doubt noticed it on display.

Starting with the exterior, just by looking at the images featured in this article you will instantly notice that this 2016 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has been outfitted with a long list of exterior enhancements, more notably a bespoke widebody kit.

No further performance figures or any 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint times were made available to us at the time of writing this article, however this is an 800 hp (597 kW) widebody Ferrari F12 Berlinetta at the end of the day, therefore it will be blisteringly fast.
