Ferrari Unveils Limited Edition F12tdf with 770 HP


Ferrari is paying homage to its success at the Tour de France with a limited edition, hardcore F12tdf model.

Only 799 units of the car will be built, and the car is a throwback to the famous endurance race that the Italian automaker dominated in the 1950s and ’60s with its 1956 250 GT Berlinetta.

Based on the F12 Berlinetta, the lightweight tdf model sheds about 243 pounds and is powered by a tweaked version of the 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12. Output is up 40 horsepower over the standard F12, totalling a massive 770 hp and 520 pound-feet of torque. Power makes it to the road via an F1 DCT that upshifts 30 percent faster and downshifts 40 percent faster.

With its weight loss and power increase, Ferrari says the F12tdf will accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. The car also has a rear-wheel steering system that makes the steering more responsive and makes the car quicker and more stable at high cornering speeds. Ferrari also says the F12tdf gets an 87 percent increase in downforce for superior cornering.

The F12tdf also gets upgraded brakes, using the same one-piece calipers seen on the LaFerrari

Special attention was also paid to the F12tdf’s aerodynamics, with the special edition boasting an aerodynamic efficiency figure of 1.6, more than double that of the standard F12. The aerodynamic upgrades also give the F12tdf a more aggressive appearance and differentiates it even further from the standard F12.

    Beautiful car but unfortunately, it will be in someone’s garage collecting dust.

    Looks similar to the Z06 save your money and buy one of those instead.

  • Thadeus Giedd

    If you have the money to have a deliberation between a brand new ferrari and a Z06 you will be alright no matter what…. jealy

    I guess, IMO even if I had the money, I would get the Vette and pocket the difference.

  • Robert

    I agree. My first thought was that it looks like the new C7.

  • Bob Miller

    No one looking at this LE F12 is looking at a Vette or any other Chevy, I assure you.

  • DoctorFeelgoodMD

    How much is the Powerball pay-out tonight? Can’t win without a ticket.

  • Brooks2000

    Probably true since it’s a limited production car. However, I was just stating my opinion. As a car guy, if I had the means this Ferrari isn’t what I’m putting in my driveway. I buy my cars to be driven and enjoyed, not to become some garage queen that can never be rained on.
