A True Ferrari Performance, the New F12tdf

In Ferrari, Short Cuts by Jonathan Humphrey

Paying homage to the Legendary Endurance Road Race, the Tour de France race that Ferrari dominated in the 50s and 60s particularly with the 250GT Berlinetta.

 
Possibly not the Ferrari with the snappiest of names. The F12tdf is the ultimate, an extreme car equally at home on track or road. Just like the legendary Tour De France cars, maximum performance with driveability and ease of use over hundreds of miles each day.

Powered by the F12 Berlinetta 6262cc 65° V12 and producing maximum power of 740 to 780 cv at 8500rpm, with maximum torque of 705Nm @ 6750rpm. The F12tdf brings serious power delivery, on tap right up to the 8900rpm redline.

Liberal use of carbon fibre has been made throughout the supercar saving 110kg. With 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and 0-124mph (200kph) in just 7.9 seconds; the result, in terms of acceleration, road holding and agility, the new F12tdf is one be bettered.

Ferrari’s engineers have created an extremely agile and powerful car with the ability to be driven by more gentlemen drivers. Using a wealth of experience built up in the XX programmes, dedicated to developing extremely high-performance cars driven by non-professional drivers.

Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the new F12tdf is the product of Ferrari’s continuous commitment to melding sculptural beauty with functional demands. With just 799 cars available, gentlemen start your engines.
