Ferrari F12 TRS makes dynamic debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Last week, the one-off Ferrari F12 TRS made its debut at the Ferrari Cavalcade, but today the brand new Italian supercar arrived at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The F12 TRS showed its sexy body in the dynamic demonstration that took place on the fabled Goodwood Festival of Speed.

For those who don’t know, the Ferrari F12 TRS is based on the F12berlinetta and was bought for an impressive $4.2 million. According to the Italian carmaker, the new supercar was developed at the customer’s request as an extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta.

F12 TRS is inspired by iconic cars such as the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and was designed by Ferrari Style Centre led by Flavio Manzoni. As we said, the vehicle is based on the Ferrari F12berlinetta, which means it carries the same 6.3-liter V12 engine delivering 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque.

As a result, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.1 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph. Regarding the design, we must admit that it is absolutely impressive.

We can find the stylish hood that takes inspiration from sports cars of the 1950s featuring a window in the engine lid, as well as a sculptural design that runs back from the flanks along the entire length of the car.

In addition, the T-shaped rear end was also updated with new fuselage fairings that run behind the headrests to the spoiler.

If you are looking for buttons at the interior you will be disappointed because Ferrari removed the central air vents, audio system, window controls, glove compartment and odds-and-ends holders. Moreover, black matt carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara complete the design.
