Ferrari’s special edition series F12tdf is truly a collector’s item and what better place to showcase such an expensive ride than the equally expensive city where all the rich of the world converge?
What we have here is the limited edition F12 Tour de France supercar caught in the metal running the streets of Monaco. There are those who joke about the F12 calling it turbodiesel force or saying it’s rather similar in design to the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 but we really call them to buy one and then dismiss it all they want – though our guess is they might actually fall in love with the ride. Anyways, the F12 Tour de France has been planned as a limited run of just 799 vehicles and by the way – it’s already old out. While it was still available the prancing horse unit had a pre-tax asking price of $337, 000 (€310,184) – which more or less looked like an open invitation for the rich folks to shell out the cash in no time.
By the way, those who grabbed it might revel in the fact it’s supposed to be one of the final Ferraris of the naturally aspirated engine era. That elegant V12 under the hood churns out 770 hp (574 kW) and 512 lb-ft (705 Nm) of torque and because the F12 tdf is 242 lbs (110 kg) lighter than the F12 Berlinetta, besides being more powerful, it’s easy to understand the performance figures. We’re talking here about a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run of 2.9 seconds and a maximum speed above the 11 mph (340 km/h) marker.
