Ferrari will raise the stake in the supercar segment with a special edition F12 Berlinetta, created to celebrate but also to tackle the mighty Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce and its 750 hp.

As we said, the Ferrari F12tdf pays homage to the Tour de France, the legendary endurance road race that Ferrari dominated in the 1950s and ‘60s, particularly with the 1956 250 GT Berlinetta which won four consecutive editions.

The engine is the F12berlinetta’s V12 on which Ferrari engineers worked to boost maximum power output from 740 hp to 780 hp at 8,500 rpm, yielding a specific power output of 125 hp/l. The engine’s maximum torque figure is 705 Nm (up from 690 Nm) at 6,750 rpm with 80% already available at 2,500 rpm, resulting in unparalleled.

The F12tdf is equipped with a specific version of the F1 DCT with 6% shorter gear ratios that delivers 30% faster upshifts and 40% faster downshifts.

The F12tdf’s aerodynamic performance is nothing short of record-breaking – its aerodynamic efficiency figure is 1.6, almost double that of the F12berlinetta. Downforce is 230 kg at 200 km/h, which is an impressive 107 kg more.  

The rear spoiler is now 60mm longer and 30mm higher, while the rake of the rear screen has been made more vertical to extend the surface area over which the spoiler can generate downforce and to capitalise on its advantages more effectively. The concave curvature of the rear luggage hatch either side of the rear screen further enhances the solution.

According to Ferrari, just 799 will be built.
