Unique Spec 2017 Ferrari F12tdf Seeks New Home

Featuring a unique Azzurro La Plata paint job

In October 2015, Ferrari announced the limited-edition F12tdf. Its nomenclature referencing a competition variant of the 250 GT, so named following the latter’s many victories in the “Tour de France Automobile” in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Like its illustrious predecessor, the F12tdf was a lightweight, track-focused model aimed at wealthy connoisseurs and gentleman racers; only 799 were built during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

The F12tdf used the same 6.3-liter V12 engine as the standard F12berlinetta, albeit modified to produce 769bhp, while deleting much of the leather/aluminum interior trim in favor of Alcantara and carbon fiber.

Together, with swapping many exterior aluminum panels for carbon fiber, this helped shed some 110kgs from the total weight. The result was a reduction of the 0-100km/h to 2.9 seconds while the claimed top speed was now “in excess of 211mph.”

Delivered to its first owner in June 2017, the Ferrari F12tdf you see here courtesy of RM Sotheby’s was built to UK specifications with right-hand drive.

A head-turner during the 2017 Ferrari Cavalcade, it sports a unique a unique Azzurro La Plata paint job with a French Tricolore stripe, a modern take on the colors of its inspiration, the 250 GT LWB Tour de France. Packed with over £57,000 in options, it features 20-inch forged wheels, a sports exhaust, and carbon fiber racing seats.

Inside, large carbon fiber racing seats in Azzurro Santorini with Rosso Ferrari stripes complement the lower dashboard. Red stitching, red seatbelts, and a white tachometer add pops of color. Carbon fiber extends to headlight buckets, door covers, rear bench trim, hubcaps, and dash inserts.

Having barely surpassed 550 miles, mostly from the 2017 Ferrari Cavalcade, this F12tdf has remained mostly in storage and has been regularly serviced since its return to the UK.
