Two Ferrari F12tdfs Get Delivered In Monaco

Unlike some manufacturers, Ferrari hasn’t wasted any time in getting the brand new F12tdf into the hands of its die-hard customers with the very first two examples recently being delivered in Monaco – where else?

The two F12tdf models delivered by the local Monte Carlo dealership are almost identical. Both are painted in the same shade of yellow as the original press car, have yellow brake calipers, black wing mirrors and come complete with the Scuderia Shields on the front quarter panels.

The only obvious point of difference between the two is that one has black wheels while the other’s are silver. If I was ordering an F12tdf, I’d certainly opt for the black wheels.

Limited to just 799 examples worldwide, it seems very likely that the Ferrari F12tdf will become a collector’s car in much the same way as ‘GTO’ badged Ferrari models. It is also particularly special as it is the most powerful naturally-aspirated car on the planet with 769 hp being delivered by the 6.3-litre V12.

When combined with a 1520 kg kerb weight, 115 kg less than the F12 Berlinetta, Ferrari promises that the F12tdf will accelerate to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and dispatch the sprint to 124 mph in only 7.9 seconds. To put those times into perspective, the Lamborghini Aventador SV hits 62 mph in 2.8 seconds thanks to its all-wheel drive system and takes 8.6 seconds to rattle off 124 mph.
