Ferrari has officially pulled the wraps off its newest supercar up to date, the so-called F12tdf.
You may remember the Ferrari F12tdf, which was referred to as the Speciale or the GTO, from the spy shots ending up on the web these past few months but the Maranello based company has put an end to rumors and reports about it by officially unveiling it. This has been made over the web for the moment and it is showing us a stunning looking hot version of the F12 Berlinetta.
The brand new Ferrari F12tdf is paying homage to the legendary endurance road race of the 1950s, with its name, and it is bringing a radical redesign of the body and an extensive use of carbon fiber. The supercar is now lower, it has a wider stance, fins in the bumper and hood, a sharp front splitter, slats in the rear haunches and a rear spoiler which is now 60 mm longer and 30 mm higher than before, generating 230 kg of downforce at 200 km/h (124 mph), 107 kg more than before.
The centrally mounted fog light at the rear is also noticeable, along with the mean-looking diffuser and the quad tailpipe layout. The supercar has a modified front fascia as well along with new lines in the side profile and a multi-spoke silver-finished set of wheels, 20-inch in size, with the Ferrari logo in the center. The new one-piece brake calipers, the same one from the LaFerrari, have been added to it, providing “outstanding” stopping distances. When equipped with the optional lightweight materials, the brand new Ferrari F12tdf is weighing just 1,415 kg, meaning that it is 110 kg lighter than the standard F12 Berlinetta.
As you would have probably expected, the cabin of the new Maranello-born supercar has been stripped out. We can notice the door panels with the carbon fiber trim, the knee padding which is replacing the traditional glovebox, aluminum plates instead of floor mats, Alcantara instead of the real leather and several other goodies which are telling us that this is aimed towards the track and not long distance cruising, unlike its more toned down brother.
Under its hood, engineers have kept the same 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, from the F12 Berlinetta, which can also be found on the FF and on the LaFerrari hypercar, but its power has been boosted from the standard 719 HP (529 kW) to a total of 770 HP (566 kW), available at 8,500 rpm. The peak torque has increased too, from 689 Nm (508 lb-ft) to a total of 705 Nm (520 lb-ft), available at 6,750 rpm. 80 percent of the vehicle’s torque figure is available from as low as 2,500 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is now made in just 2.9 seconds and top speed stands at 340 km/h (211 mph). The RWD exotic car has a new version of the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, with shorter gear ratios. No pricing details have been announced so far. The Ferrari F12tdf is competing with the Lamborghini Aventador Super Veloce.
