Italian sports car-maker Ferrari's tribute model to the Tour de France road races of the 1950s-60s, the F12tdf, seems to have already found takers for the entire production. The company unveiled the F12tdf in October and limited it to just 799 units.
Based on the F12Berlinetta model, the F12tdf is powered by the same 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that develops increased 770bhp and 705Nm of torque from the standard's 719bhp and 690Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an F1 gearbox double clutch 7-speed transmission. The manufacturer claims 80% of this torque is available from as low as 2,500rpm. and the 0-100kph sprint takes just 2.9 seconds. The sports car also reaches a top speed of 340kmph.
On design, the F12tdf gets an aggressive body kit that differentiates this model from the F12 Berlinetta. The kit includes a longer and higher rear spoiler, larger air vents, a redesigned rear diffuser and new wheel arches. The changes result in generating 30% more downforce over the F12 Berlinetta, and use of carbon-fibre drops the weight by 110kg.
The sports car measures 4,656mm in length, 1,961mm in width and 1,273mm in height, and now weighs 1415kg. The pricing of the limited edtion wasn't available at the time of the unveiling. The Autovisie indicates it is â‚¬465,974 in the Netherlands, which is roughly over Rs 3.3 crore in India, excluding taxes.
