This videos shouldn’t even exist – it makes our hearts and ears bleed with envy at the sound of epicness and makes us want to rob a bank for the chance to also be in the driver’s seat for those magical three minutes.
Anyways, we’re not going to rob a bank because we’re no Joker and after all the world of the XXI century brings an ample roster of possibilities to quench your motoring heart. Just sift through the YouTube videos and you’ll find numerous occasions to escape reality and imagine you’re a racer on any of the world’s most famous racetracks. On this particular occasion, we have the blessing to witness the Ferrari F12Tour de France, with the onboard video – complete with that awesome – sound, taken on a Spa-Francorchamps trackday. This model has been reported on numerous occasions, but the fact remains this is among the greatest naturally aspirated V12 engines ever constructed – and unfortunately maybe among the last as well.
The F12 Tour de France boasts 770hp at 8,500rpm and 705Nm (520lb-ft) at 6,750rpm. All this power is complimented with the gym program that made the model lose a healthy 110kg out of its weight, mainly due to the deployment of carbon fiber and other solutions. The sprint to 62 mph (100km/h) will take place in a blink and you’ll miss it 2.9 seconds, while the 124 mph (200 km/h) threshold is obtained in a mind-blowing 7.9 seconds. And with lots of grip thanks to Ferrari prowess, there’s no other location than the track to safely unlock the massive potential of the supercar.
