The TdF in the name refers not to the Tour de France bike race, but rather to the Tour de France endurance race in which Ferrari participated in the mid-20th century.

The F12 TdF features unique aerodynamic upgrades over the standard F12, including a redesigned front splitter, rear fender louvers, and a longer and wider rear spoiler. Upgrades to the underbody provide 30 percent of the vehicle's increased downforce.

The F12 TdF utilizes the same 6.3-liter V-12 as the standard F12 Berlinetta. In this car, though, power is up from 730 horsepower to 769, and torque is up from 509 pound-feet to 520. Redline is a stratospheric 8,900rpm.

The F12 TdF's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission has been upgraded for 30 percent faster upshifts and 40 percent faster downshifts. The gear ratios are 6 percent shorter for improved acceleration at the sake of top speed.

Not only does all this tweaking increase the F12 TdF's downforce by 87 percent over the standard model, it also contributes to a 242.5-pound (110-kilogram) weight reduction.

The F12 TdF's interior focuses on simplicity. The door panels consist of a single carbon-fiber shell, the glove compartment is replaced with knee padding and the floor mats are eschewed in favor of patterned aluminum.

A lighter curb weight and additional power means the F12 TdF is a serious performer. 60 mph arrives in 2.9 seconds, 124 mph comes up in 7.9 seconds, and the top speed is north of 210 mph. On Ferrari's Fiorano test circuit, it's a full 2 seconds faster than the standard F12 Berlinetta.
