The Geneva world premier was the highlight of the whole show. The development taking place in the months before the unveiling, a static concept would have been merely enough, but the EB112 drove onto the stand. The powertrain consisted of a 60 vale (five valve per cylinder) 6 litre V12 coupled to a six speed manual transmission and a sophisticated four wheel drive system.
The naturally aspirated V12 produced 460 HP at 6,300 rpm and a peak torque of 590 Nm from just 3,000 rpm. This gave the EB112 great performance potential, much more than any contemporary saloon cars of the day. A top speed of 300 km/h, 186 mph, was possible and the EB112 could reach 100 km/h, 62 mph in 4.3 seconds.
