The F12tdf is powered by a 6.3L V12 that’s been borrowed from the F12 Berlinetta, but its power has been upgraded from 730 horsepower to 769. It’s torque has also been increased to 520 lb-ft. Ferrari has also upgraded the dual clutch transmission, which now has 6% shorter gear ratios that deliver 30% faster upshifts and 40% faster downshifts.

The exterior has also been tweaked to make the F12tdf more aerodynamic. Thanks to the abundant use of lightweight carbon-fiber inside and out, the F12tdf drops 240 pounds. All of the upgrades give the F12tdf a 0-62 mph time of only 2.9 seconds and it will reach 124 mph in a quick 7.9 seconds before it reaches a top speed just over 211 mph.
