Kissing 800-horsepower in a rear-drive car would be madness for most chassis. But the F12 can really handle the extra shove, and delivers even more delastasting sprint and top-speed pace with this engine PPP upgrade.
This is a naturally-aspirated engine, so ECU revisions have far less impact than in antyhing super- or turbo-charged. To achieve the extra 75 horsepower over the factory car, it is all about heavy breathing: a race filter in front, larger downpipes behind the engine, and a free-er exhaust out back. All this helps the F12 shout much louder than the stock machine…. so it is a win/win on all counts!
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta by PP-Performance
CAVALLINO RAMPANTE TREATED BY PP-PERFORMANCE
The main head quarter of PP-Performance is at Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, as everyone knows. But its roots are at Weissbach, Germany. Besides the spread nearly all over the world branches, since 1998 there is a German subsidiary site under direction of Jimmy PELKA in the Swabian Weissbach. Its flags show not without pride the slogan Tuning in Perfection. Innumerous examples of the absolute materialization of even this motto are to be admired everywhere on the roads around the globe.
To set one’s hand to a Ferrari nearly is lese majesty – from the Italian standpoint. But that is no argument for PP-Performance! This time, the team of professionals in a dauntless way treats a Ferrari F12berlinetta – not in conventional red, by the way, but sooner in innocent white. But the outer appearance does not attract the interest of the Swabian masters of art. Furthermore, the matter is to tune the so called inner values of the bolide. Some few, but nevertheless well conceived modifications are made at Weissbach on the lengthwise in front installed 6.3-liters-V12-engine. There will to be mentioned at first the installation of a BMC Race filter, then the complete FI (Frequency Intelligent) catless exhaust system, which without any doubts has a not insignificant part of the power explosion when acting the accelerator pedal. But the crown of the engine “surgery” is nevertheless the optimization of the engine control by means of company own software.
For the complete kit PP-Performance demands 14,999 Euro including VAT. Therefore, you will have now 795 “perky horses” (= 585 kW) with 730 Nm of max. torque under the bonnet – instead of the serial 740 HP (= 544 kW) with 690 Nm of torque. That means spurt from 0 to 100 kmph (0…60 mph) within 2.9 seconds (serially 3.1 sec) and from 0 to 200 kmph in 8.0 seconds (serially 8.5 seconds). Tuned this way it is quite simple to be ahead of all kind of speed freaks on road and race track!
