Ferrari released today the official details of the one-off Ferrari F12 TRS. We knew about the philosophy of this model for a while now, but the specs of the TRS were unknown. As it turned out, the car is just a design exercise and does not feature a KERS system as early speculations suggested.
Built for an unnamed client, the Ferrari F12 TRS is a modern take on the 1957 250 Testa Rossa based on the F12 Berlinetta. The car features the same underpinnings as the F12, including a 740 horsepower 12 engine which enables it to do 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.1 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 8.1 seconds.
What sets the TRS apart, and has reportedly cost the client $4.2 million, is the exquisite body. The main features of this glorious design include wraparound windscreen, transparent engine cover showing off the signature red cylinder heads, exaggerated aero bridges, and a unique take on double bubble roof, which due to lack of a roof starts from the headrests and ends up in the rear spoiler.
The interior of Ferrari F12 TRS is almost completely stripped-out, with glove compartment, central air vents, mats, audio system, window controls and “odds-and-ends” holders al removed. It features black matt carbon-fibre, leather and Alcantara, while the same multi-layer red that adorns the exterior is used on the central tunnel and the door panels.
