Nothing short of records breaking performance – Limited edition of 799
The F12berlinetta was already a potent road car but Ferrari took it to the extreme with the development of this Special Series version dubbed the F12tdf, which pays homage to the Tour de France, the legendary endurance race that Ferrari dominated in the 1950s and 60s. While it may possess the same V12 powered, front engine, rear wheel drive configuration as its predecessor, it offers a much more visceral driving experience due to numerous engine, gearbox, vehicle dynamic, and aerodynamic innovations derived from Ferrari’s F1 engineering experience. The result is an astonishing 769bhp, almost double the aerodynamic efficiency and 47% more downforce at 200 km/h. To make the additional power more manageable and improve responsiveness, a rear wheel steering system known as “Virtual Short Wheelbase system” was also introduced for the first time on a road car. Production of the F12tdf is very limited, only 799 examples will be built for a select group of Ferrari loyalists.
