Since we’re talking here about the Ferrari supercar brand, stuff we actually have no problem believing the latest report that calls for the limited-series, patient track-oriented F12tdf to already have sold all of its 799 units production run.
That’s even as the model sparked some “trolling” commentaries that interpret the moniker as the “Turbo Diesel Ferrari ” and the very hardcore prancing horse sporting an entry price of no less than 310,184 euros per exemplary. And you should consider that such a lumps sum would be heightened by the eventual country-specific taxes and the myriad of optional extras. For example in the Netherlands and without adding any of the optional features, the base price would start at €465,974. And the model looks to be treated as a high luxury commodity – since it was only revealed to the public a couple of months ago. But then again, having a limited series Ferrari would spell good business in the future – especially considering the brand is now independent and regarded as a high-luxury goods brand, not necessarily an automaker.
By the way, the F12tdf should also have a special place in history since it will be one of the last Ferraris to feature under the hood a naturally aspirated engine – the V12 6262 cc powerplant delivers 780 PS (574 kW) and 705 Nm (512 lb-ft) of torque to the wheels assisted by the very fast F1 DCT gearbox. The Ferrari F12 Tour de France will do the usual 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in just 2.9 seconds and will top out somewhere above 211 mph (340 km/h).
