Autotrader Find: Ferrari F12tdf for $1.3 Million

Behold, the Ferrari F12tdf: a lightweight track-focused version of the already-high-performance Ferrari F12berlinetta. The F12tdf is faster, quicker, sportier and much rarer, as Ferrari supposedly built just 799 units. As a result, it’s also a lot more expensive: This one is currently listed for sale by Ferrari of Palm Beach for $1,324,995See the Ferrari F12tdf models for sale near you

Before I get into the pricing, let’s talk F12tdf. As I said, it’s rare, limited to a claimed 799 units — and it’s more than that. The F12tdf also touts 769 horsepower and 520 lb-ft of torque, an increase over the standard F12’s 730 hp and 509 lb-ft. And it’s a lot lighter than the standard F12, boasting a 243-lb weight reduction. The result is a 0-to-60 time of 2.9 seconds, compared to 3.1 seconds for the normal F12, and reduced lap times on racetracks.

Of course, that isn’t why most people buy it. Most people buy it for the rarity thing, and it is indeed a special car. It’s also a car that’s climbing in value: The original asking price of the F12tdf was around $500,000 before options, but limited production has driven the price sky-high, with the $1.3 million asking price here fitting completely into the realm of rationality. In fact, I’m surprised it’s not higher — especially as this car is still virtually new, having driven just 424 miles.

Still, it’s big money compared to a regular F12: The average asking price for an F12 on Autotrader is "just" $306,000, meaning this thing holds a pretty substantial premium. But be honest: Everyone has an F12. Don’t you want to stand out? Find a Ferrari F12tdf for sale
