The F12 Berlinetta is the ultimate front-engined, rear-wheel drive Grand Tourer from Ferrari and made its debut at the 2012 Geneva show. It features one of the last naturally-aspirated, V12 engines of 6,300cc which produces 740PS with a mind-boggling 690 N.m of torque resulting in 0-62mph in just 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 211mph.
In October 2015, Ferrari announced a limited-edition variant, the 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 1950's/early 1960's. Like its illustrious predecessor, the F12tdf was a lightweight, track-focused model aimed at wealthy connoisseurs and gentleman racers and only 799 were built during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The F12tdf utilised the same 6.3-litre V12 engine as the standard car, albeit modified to produce 770bhp, and the deletion of much of the leather/aluminium interior trim in favour of Alcantara and carbon fibre, together with swapping many exterior aluminium panels for carbon fibre, resulted in a weight loss of a substantial 110kg. The result was a reduction of the 0-100 kph time to 2.9 seconds, top speed was now in excess of 340kph and around Fiorano, the F12tdf was 2.0 seconds quicker than its standard sibling.
Ferrari Tailor Made is the exclusive Ferrari programme for those customers who want to customise each element of their car for a perfect fit, creating an unmistakable, one-of-a-kind vehicle which reflects their personality and tastes. Although, as the name suggests, a customer can choose from a huge variety of options, as a starting point Tailor Made cars offer three categories, Scuderia, Classica and Inedita. The Scuderia collection draws heavily on racing for inspiration, offering a host of materials and finishes created for competition including carbon fibre, sports fabrics, Alcantara, microfibre, Kevlar or satin-finish, matte or ultralight metals.
This left-hand drive, 2017 F12tdf has benefitted from the Tailor Made Scuderia programme and is finished in Triple Layer Special Order Blu Elettrico with Giallo Modena and Sparkling Silver Racing Livery. The bespoke elements of the car's specification include;
Blu Scuro Alcantara interior, Blu Scuro leather steering wheel, Giallo stitching, Giallo Modena rear diffuser dreamline, matte external carbon elements, yellow F1 button stripe, matte blue internal carbon fibre parts, internal aluminium elements and footrests in matte silver.

This is an amazing specification and we can't imagine there is another F12 quite like it. It was supplied new to the UK, is currently UK registered and we understand it has covered 1,300km from new.
