This Ferrari F12 Takes The Whole ‘Tour De France’ Thing Very Seriously

Ferrari has been known to name its cars after places: FioranoMaranelloModena, Portofino…. Rarely does it draws its nameplate from a location outside of Italy, but that’s what it did with the F12 TdF. And this particular example evidently takes that theme very seriously.

Borrowing its handle from the Tour de France and the classic 250 named after it, the F12 TdF was the ultimate version of the twelve-cylinder supercar – taken to the extreme with 769 horsepower and a sub-3-second 0-62 time.

Ferrari only made 799 examples of the F12 TdF, resulting in values far above those of the “standard” F12 Berlinetta and the 812 Superfast that followed. This one was ordered in light blue with French racing stripes, hand-painted Scuderia shields on the fenders, and over $110,000 in optional extras.

Consigned to RM Sotheby’s for its upcoming sale in Arizona, Chassis No. ZFF81BFAXH0224563 is valued at around $1.3 million – and we won’t be at all surprised to see it sell for at least that much when the gavel drops at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix little over a month from now.

    Does any car look good in baby blue- never mind an over styled supercar.

  • Love the tribute paint job, must have cost fortune to order that.

        This Blue is great comparing to the baby blue, don’t you think?

        • Yeah but the baby blue is not bad either.

          • Bash

            Well I meant not to my eyes.

          • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder mate.

            Example: Gumpert Apollo is beautiful.

            Thank god it is not Tour d’Australie, Green and Gold would do nothing for the car!

        That was another blue. A shade lighter than the French Blue of the Alpine 110, still a beautiful one. The TdF blue is really bad. Something not even Lapo in his cocaine induced dreams could have imagined.

        • Oh God don’t mention Lapo.. He will find a way to ruined it.

    i am still missing 599 GTO.

    Gay colors for a gay era. The only thing worth watching are the colors of the French flag, which i like despite me being Italian and the interiors. I bet the engine compensates for that puke-inducing color, too.
