So yesterday we showed you the Ferrari F12tdf in a good deal of action at Mugello circuit where it made its official track debut in the hands of Ferrari F1 drivers. Now the Italian company follows that up with an absolutely marvelous promotional video shot at Fiorano.
Be advised, the footage you are about to see can make you numb with astonishment and then drive you mad with desire. We can’t imagine what it’s like to actually drive a Ferrari F12tdf. It’ll probably kill you with a sudden surge of adrenaline and dopamine!
Here’s how Ferrari sums up what is good about the F12tdf, built as a limited edition homage to the company’s road racers of the 50s and 60s:
The F12tdf is a concentration of technical innovations which involve all those areas central to Ferrari’s DNA: engine, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics. As a result, in terms of acceleration, roadholding and agility, the new berlinetta is second to none. The F12tdf’s performance is assured by the 780 cv, naturally-aspirated V12 derived directly from the F12berlinetta’s multi-award-winning engine. The car’s exhilarating dynamic behaviour, specifically its lateral acceleration in corners, is due to an 8% increase in the ratio of the front tyres compared to the rear ones. The car’s natural tendency to oversteer as a result of the change in tyre sizes is compensated for by the innovative rear-wheel steering system – known as the Virtual Short Wheelbase, which is integrated with the other vehicle dynamic control systems – that guarantees the steering wheel response times and turn-in of a competition car while increasing stability at high speed.
