Almost two years ago in October 2015, Ferrari revealed the F12tdf, which took its 730bhp F12 added aero tweaks and more power to take the two-seater Ferrari GT to a whole new level of crazy.
The tdf in the name refers to the Tour de France endurance race (the motor racing one, not the one with people in shorts cycling).
Limited to just 799 units, the F12tdf is one of the rarest supercars on the planet today and now one of these thoroughbred supercars has finally landed in India. The F12tdf was spotted by the Supercars in India Facebook page as it was being unloaded at Indira Gandhi International airport in Delhi as it was being unloaded onto the tarmac. There are currently no details as of now about who owns the rare Ferrari, but hearsay suggests it could be heading to Kolkata.
The Ferrari F12tdf is powered by a 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 that cranks out 769bhp at 8,500rpm and 705Nm of torque at 6,250rpm. The manic V12 which redlines at 8,900rpm is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.
The F12tdf accelerates from 0–100kph in just 2.9 seconds, reaches 200kph five seconds after hitting 100kph and has a top speed in excess of 340kph. Deacceleration is also rapid, 60–0kph happens in just 30.5 metres and the F12tdf comes to a complete halt from 200kph in 121 metres.
India's first-ever F12tdf comes hot on the heels of the first-ever Mclaren to hit the nation's streets. Both supercars show India's growing obsession with supercars and everything fast, which is a good thing for all the 8-year-old adults with the Ferrari posters on our walls.
