2017 Ferrari F12tdf To Be Offered In Arizona
Another in our series of special automobiles being offered at RM Sotheby’s 19th annual Arizona taking place 18-19 January in Phoenix.
To be offered at RM Sotheby’s 19th annual Arizona sale this 18-19 January, this Ferrari is the ultimate homage to the “Tour de France” – and is essentially still new with fewer than 200 miles on the odometer!
History Repeats Itself
After applying the GTO moniker to the high-performance version of the 599 GTB, Ferrari chose to revive another storied name from its past for the high-performance version of the F12 Berlinetta: Tour de France.
Dubbed F12tdf, Ferrari produced just 799 examples for its very best customers. The model pays homage to the Tour de France, the legendary endurance road race that the storied marque dominated in the 1950s and 1960s. The F12tdf represents a step forward in performance far beyond that of which the F12 Berlinetta is capable. Horsepower was raised to 769 bhp (from 730 bhp) and 242 lbs. of weight was dropped. It takes just 2.9 seconds to accelerate to 62 mph, and 124 mph will arrive precisely five seconds later.
The Tour de France rewarded cars that combined maximum performance with drivability. Accessibility of performance enabled competitors to race for hundreds of kilometers a day over fast, tortuous roads and on circuits. The F12tdf is, appropriately, the ultimate expression of the concept of an extreme road car that is equally at home on the track.
This F12tdf’s first owner took advantage of Ferrari’s factory Atelier and Tailor Made program in Maranello and created a unique and stunning example with almost every available option selected. As noted on the window sticker, the car is finished in “Extra Campionario” Azzurro La Plata Livrea with a tri-color Blu, Bianco, and Rosso stripe.
