The new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta SPIA Middle East by DMC isn’t about to change the way that European cars are seen in the Middle East because that part of the world already loves super cars from the continent. There are no changes to the car to make it handle better on the roads found in the Middle East or to allow it to cope with the arid conditions there, but the changes do improve the performance.
The German tuners have developed a new titanium exhaust system for the F12 and remapped the ECU to develop 766bhp from the Ferrari’s 6.2 litre V-12. That’s an increase of 26bhp over the standard super car and it means that the top speed has been increased from 209mph to 220mph. The new machine is based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta SPIA that DMC unveiled in January 2013. That machine offered a 217mph top speed and 764bhp. The looks are very similar so this can be seen as a mild update of that machine.
The styling has also been changed. The addition of a wide carbon fibre body kit and a front splitter has added to the looks, while the rear diffuser, the rear wing and the roof scoop aid the car’s performance. Owners will be able to opt for the Virgin Gold and black stripe colour scheme seen in the image or for any other finish they wish. The 21-inch wheels at the front, 22-inch alloys at the rear and low profile Pirelli rubber complete the look.
All the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta SPIA Middle East by DMC does is feed a marketplace obsessed with all things European and attaching itself to a brand that is at the top of the super car tree. Other brands that DMC has reworked in recent times include Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes, McLaren, Bentley, Porsche, Audi and Aston Martin.
