F12BERLINETTA: ROBB REPORT’S 2014 CAR OF THE YEAR
Maranello, 25 March – In an “unprecedented landslide decision” by Robb Report editors and a panel of guest judges made up of members of the exclusive Robb Report Club, the Ferrari F12berlinetta has been selected as the luxury lifestyle authority’s 2014 Car of the Year.
Now in its 21st year, the award goes to an automobile whose technical excellence, styling, and performance captivate Robb Report’s judging panel. The Ferrari F12berlinetta outdistanced a field of 13 other sports and luxury competitors chosen by Robb Report’s automotive editors for their design, engineering, performance, and overall quality.
Selections resulted from extensive test-driving by a panel of experts that included Robb Report editor in chief Brett Anderson and automotive consultant Robert Ross who said: “Never before have our judges displayed such unanimity in choosing a Car of the Year winner. Most agreed that the F12 has it all: power, luxury, surgical response, and a shape that is seductive yet subtle for the brand. However, the exhaust, from one of the company’s most potent V12 engines, clearly and loudly identifies the F12 as a Ferrari.”
This award adds to the already rich F12berlinetta’s showcase of trophies, including prizes for the best “performance engine” and the best engine above 4 litres.
