Re-using a nickname given to the original 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione after its win of the Tour de France Automobile in 1956, the F12 Tour de France (TdF) is the latest limited edition front-engined, Ferrari V12 GT car. At its heart, the 6.3 litre V12 lifted from the F12 Berlinetta, uprated from an already hefty 730bhp to 769bhp with an 8900rpm rev limit. This affords the naturally aspirated F12TdF 123bhp per litre, through the use of a revised inlet manifold and mechanical rather than hydraulic tappets.
Shorter gear ratios enable a 2.9 second sprint to 60mph with 120mph just five seconds later. These changes make for a 1:21.00 lap of Fiorano, second only to the LaFerrari by 1.3 seconds. The F12 TdF is 110kg lighter than the F12, thanks to the prominent use of Alcantara and Carbon Fibre in the interior instead of Leather and Aluminium, and the extensive use of Carbon Fibre on the outside. Fitted for the first time on a Ferrari road car the TDF creates a ‘virtual short wheelbase’ system through the use of active rear-wheel steering; actuators on the toe link add up to a degree of angle greatly increasing stability. Visually the F12 TDF draws many cues from great Ferrari GT cars.
This example was first supplied to its prominent first owner through H.R. Owen Ferrari of London on 26th May 2016. Optioned in the elegant Ferrari Historical colour of Grigio Ferro over Charcoal, with Giallo calipers and Dark Painted Forged Rims; this example benefits from a comprehensive specification and a wealth of options to the tune of £60,000.
The car is dominated by the PNT7 livery in the upgraded Nero Stellato, a heavily metalicised black with a hint of gold fleck in direct sunlight. Inside the interior sees carbon fibre racing seats in Charcoal Alcantara, with the rest of interior also clothed in extended Charcoal Alcantara. Lavishly the steering wheel is treated to a Charcoal leather finish.The contrasting colour across the interior is Giallo, with this being used for the embroidered Cavallinos, seatbelts, stitching, contrast stripes and central rev. counter.
