2017 Ferrari F12TDF

Another rare Ferrari Gem being auctioned by Mecum at Monterey is a 2017 Ferrari F12TDF with 84 miles on the odometer.
The Ferrari F12 TDF – short for Tour de France, sports a naturally-aspirated 6.3-litre V12 that throbs 769bhp with maximum power arriving at 8,500rpm before an 8,900rpm redline. The monster will do 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds, reaching 124mph in five seconds on the way to a top speed, for the truly brave, of 211mph.

The car debuts what Ferrari calls its Virtual Short Wheelbase, a four-wheel steering system the company says compensates for oversteer while allowing faster cornering. Ferrari says rear-axle steering automatically adjusts the rear wheels for the best steering angle based on steering-wheel angle, steering inputs and speed.
A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission delivers faster shifts and with ratios six percent shorter. The track is wider, the wheels larger, and the one-piece brakes are lifted out of the LaFerrari.
799 examples were built. Price, if you're needing to ask, has gone up slightly from the roughly $490,000 when sold. $1,250,000
