Lighter, faster and more powerful: Ferrari’s new F12 TDF

Lighter, faster and more powerful: Ferrari’s new F12 TDF

 Ferrari has revealed the new F12 TDF – Tour de France.  Its name and concept are derived from the 1950s and 1960s Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta models, which achieved great success during the French road races.

The limited edition supercar boasts even better performance than the standard F12, despite being powered by the same 6.2-litre V12 engine.  Output increases by 39bhp to 769bhp, with torque reaching 520lb ft at 6,750rpm. The edgier, race-inspired F12 TDF delivers more power thanks to its race car mechanics, gearbox and engine, combined with improved aerodynamics and a lightweight carbon fibre design. 

Ferrari’s new supercar demonstrates its prowess both on and off the track, with a 0-62mph time of just 2.9 seconds and a reported top speed in excess of 211mph. The F12 TDF has almost a completely new body design, with elements taken from Ferrari’s F1 models and lightweight carbon fibre parts used throughout to make the car as aerodynamic and reactive as possible.

 The new model will be revealed to the public during Ferrari’s World Finals at Mugello on the 8th November.  Just 799 examples will be produced, with first deliveries expected in early 2016.  Ferrari is yet to confirm pricing.
