  • Less than 3,000 kilometres from new
  • Finished in ‘Extracampionario’ Blu Swaters over Nera Alcantara
  • Ordered with an extensive list of desirable options


In Ferrari lore, the name ‘Tour de France’ is one that needs no introduction. Nicknamed as such after its stunning streak of wins in the late 1950s at the iconic road race, the 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione was in its day the ultimate in speed, style, and performance. It was therefore fitting for Ferrari to decide to revive the Tour de France name for the uprated and re-engineered version of its F12 supercar, as a successor to the lauded 599 GTO.

Through the growing popularity in Ferrari’s ‘Tailor-Made’ department, many customers sought to customise their new F12tdf to their own discerning tastes in an effort to produce a truly unique car. One of only 799 examples produced, the F12tdf offered here was delivered new in 2016. In keeping with its namesake’s legendary racing pedigree, it was beautifully finished in historic Blu Swaters over a black Alcantara interior with further blue highlights, making for a timeless and subtle design.

The car is fitted with an extensive list of optional extras, including yellow brake callipers, carbon fibre headlight buckets, and fog lamps. The interior is offset with numerous carbon fibre details, including carbon fibre racing seats, doorsills, and full Alcantara trim on the parcel shelf and headlining. Technology-minded options included Ferrari’s telemetry kit, along with the desirable passenger display option, satellite navigation, and Bluetooth with the upgraded sound system. Finally, the first owner wisely ordered the desirable suspension lifter and front and rear parking cameras, facilitating low-speed navigation and parking.

Since delivery, this F12tdf has been used sparingly, with only 2,900 kilometres on its odometer at the time of cataloguing, and is offered in ‘as-new’ condition. One of the last of a dying breed of naturally aspirated V-12 supercars, this is an opportunity to acquire one of the finest road-going Ferraris of recent years and the current pinnacle of front-engine Ferrari performance, it would be a stunning addition to any collection.





• Meno di 3,000 chilometri da nuova
• Finita in colore 'Extracampionario' Blu Swaters su Alcantara Nero
• Ordinata con un'ampia lista di desiderabili opzioni

Nel mondo Ferrari il nome 'Tour de France' non ha bisogno di presentazioni. Soprannominata così dopo la sua straordinaria striscia di vittorie alla fine degli anni '50 nella leggendaria corsa su strada, la 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione era ai suoi tempi, la massima espressione automobilistica in termini di velocità, stile e prestazioni. È pertanto consono che Ferrari abbia deciso di rilanciare il nome Tour de France, per la versione migliorata e rielaborata della sua supercar F12, che succede all’acclamata 599 GTO.

Attraverso la crescente popolarità del reparto "Tailor-Made" di Ferrari, molti clienti hanno cercato di personalizzare la loro nuova F12tdf in base ai propri gusti esclusivi, nel tentativo di produrre una vettura davvero unica. Uno dei soli 799 esempi prodotti, la F12tdf offerta qui è stata consegnata nuova nel 2016. In linea con il suo omonimo leggendario pedigree da corsa, è stata splendidamente rifinita negli storici colori Blu Swaters su interni in Alcantara nero con alcuni particolari evidenziati in blu per creare una combinazione delicata e senza tempo.

L'automobile è dotata di una lunga lista di accessori opzionali, tra cui le pinze freno gialle, l’alloggiamento dei fari in fibra di carbonio e le luci fendinebbia. L'interno è arricchito di numerosi dettagli in fibra di carbonio, tra cui i sedili da corsa, le porte ed il rivestimento completo in Alcantara del lunotto e dell’imperiale. Le opzioni tecnologiche includono il kit di telemetria Ferrari, insieme all'opzione di visualizzazione per il passeggero dei dati desiderati, alla navigazione satellitare e Bluetooth con il sistema audio aggiornato. Infine, il primo proprietario ha saggiamente ordinato il sollevatore e le telecamere di parcheggio anteriori e posteriori, facilitando gli spostamenti a bassa velocità e il parcheggio.

Dal momento della sua consegna, questa F12tdf è stata utilizzata con parsimonia, con soli 2900 chilometri percorsi al momento della stesura del catalogo e viene offerta in condizioni come 'nuove'. Una delle ultime super-car con motore V-12 aspirato, una categoria in via d’estinzione, questa è un'occasione per acquisire una delle più belle Ferrari stradali degli ultimi anni e l’attuale massima espressione delle prestazioni Ferrari con il motore anteriore e sarebbe un'aggiunta straordinaria a qualsiasi collezione.
