As if the F12 berlinetta didn’t provide enough performance, Ferrari upped the ante with the F12tdf when it was unveiled in October of 2015. Taking its name from the 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione “Tour de France” that saw great success over the race of the same name in the 1950s, its V-12 engine produced 769 bhp, some 39 bhp more than the standard F12 berlinetta.
Delivered new in January of 2017 to its first and only owner in Kuwait, this F12tdf certainly stands out from its peers due to its seldom-seen and eye-catching colour combination. Finished in Giallo Modena with a Rosso Corsa and Nero stripe, the interior is trimmed in Rosso Alcantara. Furthermore, a number of components have also been finished in Giallo to further match the paintwork, including the brake calipers, seat centres, seat belts, and tachometer, as well as Giallo-contrasting stitching. Ferrari stated that just 799 would be built, and this is surely the only example to be finished and equipped as such.
As was to be expected for a limited-production Ferrari, the F12tdf’s performance was truly astounding. In addition to coaxing a bit more power out of its naturally aspirated V-12 engine, Ferrari’s engineers were able to shed 110 kg of weight. Its performance figures are truly outstanding. Accelerating from 0–100 km/h takes just 2.9 seconds, and arriving at 200 km/h will happen precisely five seconds later. To put this performance into perspective, the F12tdf will lap Fiorano in 1:21:00, only 1.3 seconds after the LaFerrari.
In addition to its eye-catching colour scheme, this F12tdf is outfitted with a number of desirable options, including the carbon-fibre headlight buckets and fog lamps, large carbon-fibre racing seats, suspension lifters, sports exhaust, front and rear parking camera, a spare 20-inch wheel, telemetry system, passenger display, and the upgraded hi-fi audio system.
Since its delivery, the car has been exceptionally well preserved in the consignor’s collection of sports cars, and it remains in virtually as-new condition throughout, having been driven less than 125 km from new. Undoubtedly one of the most incredible Ferraris produced thus far into the 21st century, the F12tdf provides truly incredible performance and has already earned its place as a modern-day classic. Uniquely specified examples in interesting colour combinations are considered the most desirable, and in that regard, this F12tdf is in a league of its own.
