Ferrari released today the official details and specs of the one-off F12 TRS, that made its public debut at the Ferrari Cavalcade. Of course, the vehicle is not new to us as we revealed you plenty of photos here and here. Regarding the new car, Ferrari says that it was developed at the client’s request as an extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta.
Based on the F12berlinetta, the F12 TRS is inspired by the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and was developed by Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Centre team.
Although several sources said that this F12 TRS carries the same KERS system found on the Laferrari, we have ‘bad news’ as it carries the same technology found on the F12berlinetta. This means a 6.3-liter V12 engine that generates 740 hp and 690 Nm of torque, that can push it 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 find some styling cues borrowed from the Project 150, a wraparound windscreen as well as an aggressively sculpted nose. Taking inspiration from the iconic front-engined Ferrari sports cars of the 1950s is also the front hood, which features a window in the engine lid that offers the perfect view of the V12 engine’s signature red cylinder heads.
In addition, the aerobridge introduced by the F12berlinetta received a new treatment resulting in a sculptural design that runs back from the flanks along the entire length of the car. The rear end also shows an evolution of the T-shaped graphic featured on the F12berlinetta, which was influenced by the cabin shape.
As a result, we find long fuselage fairings that run behind the headrests into the rear spoiler. The interior was overhauled too and creates a sense of powerful sportiness with no concessions to comfort.
Ferrari removed the glove compartment, central air vents, mats, audio system, window controls and odds-and-ends holders. In addition, some of the controls for the likes of the air conditioning, for instance, have been cut back.
The central tunnel and door panels feature the same multi-layer red paint developed for the exterior, while the black matt carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara complete the design. The new red paint found at the exterior is inspired by the traditional Rosso Corsa and according to Ferrari it was developed using multi-layer and micalised paint technologies.
Although it is not official, we do know that this beauty costs $4.2 million!
