After applying the GTO moniker to the high-performance version of the 599 GTB, Ferrari chose to revive another storied name from its past for the high-performance version of the F12 Berlinetta: The Tour de France.
Dubbed the F12tdf, Ferrari produced only 799 examples for its very best customers and wrung out every possible ounce of performance by shedding weight from and adding power to its front-engine V-12 flagship. Horsepower was raised to 769 bhp (from 730 bhp), and 110 kilograms of weight was dropped. The F12tdf takes a mere 2.9 seconds to accelerate to 62 mph and 124 mph will arrive 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. Afforded to only Ferrari’s most loyal customers, they were given the opportunity to own the limited-edition TdF, and this is one of the highest specified examples ordered.
Delivered new to Massachusetts, this example has remained in virtually new condition throughout, having only been driven fewer than 280 miles. Additionally, the car is covered under the Ferrari Genuine Maintenance program to 2023, giving the new owner peace of mind should they wish to take it to the open road. Showcasing the car’s high-performance nature, numerous carbon fiber options were selected, including under door covers, headlight buckets, and fog lamps. Other options include Telemetry System, Alcantara seat inner trim, yellow brake calipers, suspension lifter, AFS System, colored seatbelts, body color outer mirrors, and passenger display, amongst others. The options ordered total over $90,000.
Without question the ultimate front-engine Ferrari supercar, the F12tdf is truly a modern-day collectible that will continue to be held in high esteem by collectors and enthusiasts alike. With performance nearly matching the LaFerrari, but with the visibility and practicality of the F12, the TdF offers the best of both worlds. It is addicting to drive, and we are certain that the next owner will not be able to resist the temptation of its thrilling driving experience. There is no doubt that this is among the most beautifully sculpted and designed Ferraris, and it more than pays homage to its historic racing pedigree.
