After a slew of spy photos and leaks, the limited edition Ferrari F12 TdF has been unveiled.
Just 799 copies of the Ferrari F12 TdF will be built, and each one is powered by a 6.3-litre V12 that’s been tuned to deliver 574kW of power and 705Nm of torque, with around 565Nm available from 2500rpm. That’s up from the 544kW and 689Nm available on the standard F12 Berlinetta.
Drive is sent to the ground via a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. Aside from shorter gear ratios, the revised gearbox can now upshift 30 percent faster and downshift 40 percent quicker.
To help improve turn-in at lower speeds and stability at higher velocities, the F12 TdF is fitted with a rear-wheel steering system, dubbed Virtual Short Wheelbase.
110 kilograms has been stripped out from the F12 thanks to the extensive use of carbonfibre throughout the car and a pared back interior, which features new single shell carbonfibre door trims, Alcantara trimmed seats and patterned aluminium in lieu of floor mats.
With a kerb weight of 1520kg, the F12 TdF is capable of completing the 0-100km/h dash in 2.9 seconds and hitting 200km/h in 7.9 seconds; its maximum speed is claimed to be over 340km/h. The regular F12 Berlinetta requires 3.1 seconds for the 0-100km/h run and needs 8.5 seconds before it can hit 200km/h.
The F12 TdF rides on 20-inch wheels all around with 275/35 rubber up front and 315/35 tyres at the rear.
For the TdF, Ferrari has completely revised the F12’s body work to improve its aerodynamic performance and downforce generation. Among the list of changes are completely redesigned front and rear fascias, a taller and longer rear spoiler, a more vertical rear screen, and a new rear diffuser with active flaps.
If you’re wondering about the name, the limited edition F12 is named after the Tour de France automobile race that was held until 1986. From 1956 through to 1964 Ferrari won either the GT category or the overall race.
