To some, this is the ultimate modern Ferrari.
When it comes to Ferrari’s legacy, one of the most legendary formulas to have rolled out of Maranello is a naturally-aspirated V12 engine out front. Good luck getting that today, which is a great reason to consider this 2016 Ferrari F12tdf. This is the natural evolution of the Ferrari F12berlinetta, a more track-focused machine for people who like to do hot laps in something very powerful and expensive.
TDF in the name stands for Tour de France, a hat tip to Ferrari’s dominating performance in endurance motorsports back in the 1950s and 1960s, famously smashed by Ford. They are worthy successors of the legacy created by the Italians back in the day, which is why these cars have appreciated so much in value and will likely continue.
Everyone loves red Ferrari, so the fact this one wears Rosso Berlinetta over Nero makes it quite appealing. Carbon-fiber parts are on display on the exterior and interior, cutting down on curb weight and adding to the motorsports-inspired feel of this car. Yellow brake calipers are a nice highlight on the exterior, emphasizing the sporty characteristics of this model further. It also has a mere 265 miles on the odometer, which explains why the exterior and interior both look essentially flawless.
Where this Ferrari really shines is under the hood. There’s smooth yet powerful 6.5-liter V12 packed with innovative designs. The result is a peak 769-horsepwoer at 8500 rpm and 520 lb.-ft. of torque at 6750 rpm. Thanks to advanced tuning, the engine pulls hard all the way to the 8900 rpm redline, making for a tremendous driving experience. In addition, this Ferrari will do 0-62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, thanks in part to the 7-speed F1 dual-clutch transmission. You get the Ferrari Telemetry system to help measure and analyze performance, which is excellent if you want to track this car.
Prices for the F12tdf models have risen dramatically, indicating this is a true modern classic. If you’re interested in buying this 2016 Ferrari F12tdf, it’s being offered through Ferrari of San Francisco.
