Ferrari Launches Tour de France Tribute Model

By Paul Joseph

Ferrari have unveiled a new limited edition model designed in tribute to the legendary Tour de France race that the Italian marquee dominated back in the middle of the 20th century.

Limited to 799 units, the yellow F12tdf features a 6.3 litre V12 engine directly derived from the naturally aspirated Ferrari F12 Berlinetta's engine.

The latest creation generates 770 horsepower and 521 lb-ft of torque, all of which enables the F12tdf to reach 60mph in just 2.9 seconds and hit top speeds of 211mph.

Designed by the Ferrari Design Centre, the F12tdf also features a “Virtual Short Wheelbase” rear-wheel steering system and complex front bumpers inspired by competitive driving, with small wings on the side and a new rear diffuser.

The car will be officially unveiled next month at the Mugello circuit in Italy as part of the Ferrari Challenge World Finals.

Ferrari was founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929.
