Carbon-ceramic brakes

The lovely pattern of carbon-ceramic rotors that are standard on the F12. At 700+ horsepower, they'd better be.

The Aero Bridge

The Aero Bridge is the easiest way to spot an F12, and supposedly adds some 270 pounds of downforce at full speed as it evacuates air down and along the side of the car's fenders and doors.

The rear view of the F12 (the one you will see most often!) really harkens back to the company's classic GT cars of the 1960s.
