We’re used to having our Ferraris in red but a yellow color – if treated properly – can awe and wonder just as much. And since we’re talking here about the stunning Ferrari F12tdf, all the better.
If you didn’t do your homework properly, you should know the F12tdf is a limited series special edition dedicated to the Tour de France and coming with some nifty 780 ponies under the hood. Just 799 vehicles will be made wearing the tdf moniker and coming with numerous enhancements in the engine, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics when comparing the model to the “standard” Berlinetta. Uses the same V12 6262cc power mill but now the engine has another 40 PS to spare and torques is also up a notch to 705 Nm (521 lb-ft) at 6,750 rpm, being mated to the modified version of the F1 DCT gearbox with 30% faster upshifts and 40% faster downshifts, as well as 6% shorter gear ratios. That’s good for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run of 2.9 seconds and a 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) sprint of 7.9 seconds en route to the top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).
What we see here photographed in the wild is the F12tdf wearing a gorgeous yellow paint and spotted by car fan Florian Schulz at a gas station near Maranello in Italy. By the way, the F12tdf has already hit the streets in less than a month since it was officially introduced so either Ferrari has already started delivering the model.
