Over 8 years the legendary event “Tour de France” was dominated by Maranello, consecutively taking the title home from 1956 through to 1964 with every driver equipped with the fabled Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB or later the GTO.
Skip to 49 years later after releasing the F12 Berlinetta in 2013, Ferrari were working on a limited production, track focused variant that would give even Sebastian Vettel goose bumps.
Paying tribute to the multiple victories at Tour de France Ferrari branded the Ferrari F12 TDF in 2016 as their new flagship supercar and only 799 examples were to be built worldwide.
Now 110 kg lighter than the Berlinetta, more horsepower, shorter gear ratios, the TDF revs to 8900 rpm and as you can tell from the bodywork it likes to torture any air that comes near it and has more than doubled its downforce without a rear wing in sight.
Even with its race car characteristics it can also be driven every day and is relatively practical. Like all supercars require, to stop you from making a very expensive mistake, the TDF is fitted with a front lift system as standard and its clearance is superb. It has a reverse camera with front and rear parking sensors, navigation and a high-power JBL sound system like any other car, however that’s not what this car is about…
You buy this car for its award-winning 6.3 litre naturally aspirated V12 mid-mounted front engine as it is perhaps the best powertrain that man has yet devised. The amount of torque and the way the acceleration ramps at 2000rpm is mind-bending and the soundtrack is like a demonic symphony orchestra on the move.
Rear-wheel drive… of course, and the two-foot-wide contact patches have to wrangle 770 hp and gain traction to then somehow achieve 0 – 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and 200km/h in 7.9 seconds which the F12 TDF does with absolute ballistic elegance.
We are proud to offer this exceedingly exclusive and rare Australian delivered 2016 Ferrari F12 TDF which was painted in special order Rosso Monza optioned with a Nero Nappa Leather Cabin with Rosso Alcantara trim, 20-inch Forged Dark Painted Alloys and has travelled just 1,690 kilometres from new.
With so few examples offered worldwide, even fewer arriving on Australian shores, this car is one for the discerning collector, providing a sound investment thanks to its unique specification, “as new” condition and incredibly low mileage, don’t miss this opportunity to own this very special prancing horse.
