A parade of 90 Ferraris is already a pretty special occasion, but this year’s Ferrari Cavalcade in Italy saw the debut a new one-off supercar called the Ferrari F12 TRS. Based on the F12 Berlinetta, this special model was commissioned by a customer and is meant to be inspired by the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa.
The Ferrari F12 TRS boasts a striking new design that turns the already standout F12 Berlinetta into an even more aggressive-looking supercar. The biggest change design-wise is the wraparound windshield that tapers into a speedster-like, open-roof cockpit with sculpted farings behind the two front seats. Ferrari has also restyled the F12’s aerobridge aerodynamic wind channel system that runs from the hood along the sides of the car, and the rear end of the Ferrari F12 TRS is slightly shorter than on the standard F12. There are also new wheels and a glass panel in the hood so that the V-12 engine’s red cylinder heads are visible to onlookers.
This 6.3-liter V-12 engine in the Ferrari F12 TRS is not modified compared with the F12 Berlinetta, and produces the same 731 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque as the standard car. Although there are no mechanical changes to the Ferrari F12 TRS, the interior is completely stripped out, doing without air conditioning, a glove compartment, a radio, floor mats, or power window controls. This should make the F12 TRS slightly faster than a standard F12 Berlinetta thanks to its lower weight. Sadly, we'll never get to know, as the car is headed directly for the collection of the customer who commissioned it.
