Ferrari's new F12 Berlinetta supercar will make its North American debut at this week's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California.

Revealed internationally in March, the F12 arrives as the successor to the popular 599, and as the Prancing Horse's most powerful-ever production car.

Ferrari's Aventador-rival, the F12 is driven by a new V12 producing 545kW and 690Nm of torque, compared to 525kW and 690Nm for the Lamborghini.

While the Lambo puts power down through all four paws, the F12 sticks with a rear-wheel-drive layout.

Despite this, Ferrari promises a 3.1 second run to 100km/h, just 0.2 seconds off the Aventador's time.

The F12 is also a smaller car than its predecessor, measuring 4618mm long, 1924mm wide and 1273mm tall - 47mm shorter than the 599, and a huge 162mm shorter than its bull-badged counterpart.
