770hp Ferrari F12tdf revealed – it's as fast as a LaFerrari

The rumoured F12 Speciale has arrived – but it’s taking the Tour de France name after the endurance road race dominated by Ferrari in the 1950s and ’60s.

Power comes from the same 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V12 as the F12 Berlinetta, with power boosted to 770hp. That results in a 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds – the same as the LaFerrari hypercar.

It’s good for a top speed of more than 211mph, says Ferrari, and can lap Fiorano in 1 minute 21 seconds. Impressively, the tdf produces 520lb ft of torque – with 80% available from 2,500rpm. It hits the redline at 8,900rpm.

Efficiency has been boosted, you’ll be pleased to know, using modifications from Ferrari’s F1 cars. It’ll return 18.3mpg on the combined cycle and emit 360g/km CO2.

110kg has been slashed off the F12’s weight, thanks largely to heavy use of carbonfibre. It’s shod with new tyres, too – larger ones at the front to aid handling, along with rear-wheel steering.

With such impressive performance you’ll want to be able to stop quickly – so Ferrari’s fitted brakes from the LaFerrari.

The manufacturer’s keeping shtum about the price for the time being – but expect it to cost around £275,000 when it goes on sale next year. Only 799 examples will be sold worldwide.
