The long-awaited successor to the Ferrari 599 GTO, the F12 TdF, was first shown early last month, however the 6.3-liter V12 powered supercar made its first in-person appearance just recently at Ferrari’s Finali Mondiali event at the Mugello Circuit in Italy.
The F12 TdF is faster and more powerful than the standard F12 Berlinietta on which it’s based. The 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 is up from 730 horsepower to 769, while torque is also up from 509 lb-ft to 520 lb-ft. The car also benefits from a lighter kerb weight of 240 lbs, wider tires, improved aerodynamics and a rear-wheel steering system Ferrari refers to as a ‘Virtual Short Wheelbase’.
As one might expect for a supercar of this caliber, the F12 TdF made quite the entrance in its first ever appearance. Both of Ferrari’s F1 drivers, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, were on hand to demonstrate to the Ferrari fanatics on hand just what the car can do, so be sure to check out Ferrari’s video recap of the car’s debut above.
