What’s better than a Ferrari F12? The Ferrari F12 TDF! And what if it’s not enough? Fret not; the Bengala F12 Caballeria is here. European design house Bengala Automotive has taken the F12berlinetta madness to another level with their new Caballeria. Launched under their brand new Privilege Program the Bengala F12 Caballeria nestles a F12berlinetta soul under its badass GT3 looks.
We can see a whole lot of cosmetic changes and upgrades but there are no details given out regarding any modifications carried out on the original’s engine. If there aren’t any, then it is the same monstrous naturally aspirated V12 that awakens the F12 Caballeria. With a power of around 730 horses the vicious V12 can propel the F12 from 0-200kmph in just 8.5 seconds. While the engine can do all of that to the stock F12 that is crafted out of carbon and metal, imagine what it would do to the 100% carbon fibre Caballeria!
On the visual front, the stock F12berniletta looks like one of the good guys whereas the F12 Caballeria appears as the leader of a pack of ferocious wolves. The overall Bengala bodywork gives the Caballeria a wide stance. Although the whole machine is made out of carbon fibre, the maker has made sure to leave a few bits in the carbon fibre finish to accentuate its dark theme. The reworked front bumper gets a mesh grill and redesigned air intakes underlined with a carbon fibre bumper lip.
The front fenders get air vents and a carbon fibre garnish featuring the prancing horse insignia. The bonnet loses the centre scoop but retains the other two. At the rear, the bumper gets air vents on either side and the dual tip exhaust units are draped are garnished with carbon fibre treatment. Lastly, the F12 Caballeria rides on bigger 15-spoke rims covering the larger disc brake setup inside. By one of the photographs, it can be seen that the seats are draped in a vivid Red fabric and the dashboard has been redone in a darker theme.
10 units of the bespoke carbon fibre Bengala F12 Caballería inaugurate the Bengala Privilege Program. This project paves way for owners into an exclusive club. The Privilege Program gives owners an instant access to Bengala’s future limited edition projects, along with events and private viewings, with a first choice option to its members before new designs are released onto the market. The production of all the F12 Caballería will be completed by summer 2017.
Bengala CEO and Founder Shoghi Saeidnia says, “In most cases, uniqueness is a state of mind; we bring to our customers an interpretation of their desires, based on their dreams. Put it simply, we mastered and created a unique piece of design and engineering, the Bengala F12 Caballería, and ten special individuals earned it.”
