The F12 replaces the 599 GTB and is faster, lighter, and just plain better than its predecessor.

Carbon-ceramic brakes offer strong initial bite and great performance, even when very hot.

This parcel shelf behind the seats is a lovely touch, but a costly option.

These seats are a racy option, well-suited for the track, but their lack of adjustment means they may not be the best for touring.

This is the four-way controller that's used for navigating through the infotainment system. It's small but easily within reach for the driver -- but not the passenger.

The F12's steering wheel, shared with the 458 and FF. Everything you need is quickly at hand. The red knob (called a manettino) controls driving modes quickly and easily.

Again, a four-way selection for the right display.

And, last but not least, a decently sized trunk, complete with plush carpet, of course.
