THE F12tdf

Introduced to the motoring public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Ferrari F12 replaced the 599 family of front-engined Gran Turismos. Evo magazine declared:

The company has thrown everything at it to ensure it's vastly quicker than its seminal predecessor, but also that it's more enjoyable at low speeds. It claims to be both GT and supercar, mixing front-engined packaging and civility with exotic, F1-inspired dynamic ability.

Ferrari's gorgeous new Berlinetta was soon garnering critical accolades, being voted "Supercar of the Year 2012" by Top Gear magazine. Furthermore, in 2014 it received the coveted "Premio Compasso d'Oro ADI," one of the world's oldest and most prestigious design awards.

It is an oft-stated cliché that "the heart of every Ferrari is its engine." and the F12's 6.3-liter, 65-degree, normally aspirated V12 is acknowledged as one of the finest ever, winning the "Best Performance" and "Best Engine above 4.0-liters" categories in the 2013 "International Engine of the Year Awards." With 730bhp on tap, this class-leading power unit—one of the most powerful every installed in a Ferrari road car—delivers stupendous performance, propelling the F12 to 100km/h (62mph) in 3.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 211mph. Around Ferrari's Fiorano test track, the F12 proved to be 3.5 seconds quicker that the preceding 599 GTB and 2.0 seconds quicker than the mid-engined Enzo. Even the hardcore 599 GTO was slower.

But these days even a supercar has to make the odd concession in the interests of fuel economy, and with this in mind, the F12 incorporated Ferrari's HELE stop/start system that reduces consumption when idling. Paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel—an innovation pioneered by Ferrari in Formula 1—had long been a feature of the Maranello marque's road cars, and the F12's controlled a seven-speed dual-clutch semi-automatic transmission. Stability, traction control, suspension, and other settings were also controlled from the F12's steering wheel, while improved carbon-ceramic brakes helped keep things in check.

The engine/transmission package was mounted in an aluminum spaceframe chassis—developed by Ferrari's close neighbors and long-time collaborators, Carrozzeria Scaglietti—that represented significant gains in rigidity and weight reduction when compared with the preceding 599 GTB. As one would expect of a modern-day Ferrari supercar, the F12 came with the latest in driver aids as standard: ABS, SCM-E magnetorheological suspension, electronic limited-slip differential, ESP Premium stability control, and F1-Trac traction control.

Styled by the Ferrari Styling Centre and Carrozzeria Pininfarina, the F12's voluptuous body restated the traditional "long bonnet, small cabin, short tail" look in a manner suggesting muscular horsepower, while retaining all the elegance associated with the Italian coachbuilder's work for Maranello. A significant aerodynamic development was the "Aero Bridge": an under-body air channel running from front to rear that increased down force while exerting less drag than an external wing. Moreover, "Active Brake Cooling" ducts had been adopted for the same reason, opening only when the brakes required cooling while remaining closed at other times to reduce aerodynamic drag. The result was a remarkably low-drag coefficient of only 0.299. Based on that of the Ferrari FF, the "Frau leather" interior featured aluminum, Alutex, and carbon fiber trim. The F12's optional accessories were extensive, though pricey. Who would have thought that a carbon fiber cup holder could cost £2,112?

In October 2015, Ferrari announced a limited-edition variant, the F12tdf. Its nomenclature referencing a competition variant of the 250 GT, so named following the latter's many victories in the "Tour de France Automobile" in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Like its illustrious predecessor, the F12tdf was a lightweight, track-focused model aimed at wealthy connoisseurs and gentleman racers; only 799 were built during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

The F12tdf used the same 6.3-liter V12 engine as the standard car, albeit modified to produce 769bhp, while deleting much of the leather/aluminum interior trim in favor of Alcantara and carbon fiber. Together, with swapping many exterior aluminum panels for carbon fiber, this helped shed some 110kgs from the total weight. The result was a reduction of the 0-100km/h to 2.9 seconds while the claimed top speed was now "in excess of 211km/h." Around Fiorano, the F12tdf was 2.0 seconds quicker than its standard sibling.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This limited production Ferrari F12tdf was custom ordered through a North American Ferrari dealer, where its original owner took delivery of his masterfully spec'd supercar. The exterior is adorned with special order Grigio Ferro Metallic paint with extensive carbon fiber throughout. The interior is extensively swathed in matte carbon fiber and Blu Scuro Alcantara with Blu Sterling accents. The custom specifications added well over $100,000 to the car's original sticker price. Upon viewing the completed work of art, it was clearly money well spent. To protect the stunning paint and carbon, the majority of the exterior was wrapped in a clear protective material to ensure it was protected from the elements.

From the time of delivery to the present moment, the original owner has only put 4,602 miles on the car. Throughout that time, all recommended services were carried out at Ferrari. In 2016, while in parking garage, the front-end received some minute damage to the bodywork. Photos of the car following the incident are on file. Rather than taking the easy and inexpensive way out and having the bodywork repaired, wanting to keep the car unmolested with original factory applied paint, the owner made the commendable decision to commission Ferrari to re-manufacture the complete specialized front bumper and fender and apply the Grigio Ferro Metallic paint to them at the factory. After the parts were replaced, the car was Ferrari Classiche Certified where it received a spotless certification. Currently, the car is in immaculate condition with hardly any discernable evidence of use.

Accompanying the car are its original factory supplied accessories, window sticker, and Ferrari Classiche Certification with book. The F12tdf is truly a modern-day collectible that will continue to be held in high esteem by collectors and enthusiasts alike. This F12tdf is surely one of the most well thought-out and desirable builds to leave Maranello. As such, the sale of this beautifully sculpted limited production supercar presents and incredible opportunity that should not be missed.
