Ferrari F12 tdF: track-level performances specially made for the road
Ferrari announced the debut of the F12 tdF limited edition. Succeeding to the F12 Berlinetta, the Ferrari F12 tdF reveals optimized performances and unequalled qualities. Paying homage to the Tour de France (as in tdF) this tandem coupé referred to the 50’s – 60’s sport cars that already combined performances and flexibility.
An extreme road car
The Ferrari F12 tdF is all so comfortable over road and on circuits. Its numerous technical innovations and its aerodynamics allow the car to reach unique performances as a better speed and more manoeuvrability.
Its lateral acceleration in corners is all so intoxicating thanks to the front wheels that were increased compared to the rear wheels. The rear-wheel steering system and their dynamic control system let the car benefits from the same capacities than the racing cars while improving the steering-wheel response time and the stability at high speed.
The Ferrari F12 tdF ‘s bodywork has been redefined as its interior, its unique engine and all its components along with the use of carbon-fibre that lighten the car from 110 kg, which allow it to reach record times for the top-speed and stopping distances. Then the Ferrari F12 tdF can brake from 100 to 0 km/h in just 30.5m.
So the Ferrari F12 tdF is a truly powerful and agile evolution that even the less experienced driver can enjoy.
In terms of powertrain, the Ferrari F12 tdF shows an impressive V12 engine, the same as the F12 Berlinetta but improved with 780 ph instead of 740 ph. So it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in a record time of 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 7.9 seconds. Its amazing top-speed goes beyond 340 km/h. Specially made for circuits, the Ferrari F12 tdF engine is like Formula 1 engines, as its F1 transmission which is shorter and faster than the traditional ones.
If the Ferrari F12 tdF performances break all the records, it is also due to its exceptional aerodynamics, more efficient than the Berlinetta’s. The bodywork has been rethink but the elegance and the sensuality remain intact.
The Ferrari F12 tdF was optimized in order to satisfy demanding criterion in terms of efficiency, purity and functionality. Its interior reveals a rare elegance. So the wrap-around effect is stunning. The carbon-fibre door panels, the Alcantara instead of traditional leather for the cabin trim or again the patterned aluminium instead of mats for the floor have been chosen to save every last ounce of weight.
The Ferrari F12 tdF will be launched on November 8th at the Mugello Finali Mondiali and will be produced at only 799 unique copies.
