Ferrari Should Quit Teasing and Make a Production Run of the F12 TRS

BOLD RIDE

Oh, you have a Ferrari 458? That’s cute. Too bad you’re just like hundreds of other rich people around the world. If you really wanted to stand out, you’d have one of these bad boys: the F12 TRS, a limited edition version of the F12berlinetta released about a year ago.

Originally, the car was a one-off exclusive for somebody who wanted a new car that had roots reaching back to the 1957 250 Testa Rossa, the legendary prancing horse that won Le Mans in 1958, 1960 and 1961 (A ’57 Testa Rossa reportedly sold for $39 mill last year. That’s how massive the love for that car is).

So the mad geniuses in Maranello cooked up the TRS. It has an open-top design, a new engine-revealing hood, a devilish new smirk with a custom splitter, new side skirts, and a wicked diffuser on the rear.

Three of these beauties exist in the world. The first was red, the second was black, and now we have this unique silver that looks like it could be some type of rare earth metal.

The engine nestled underneath the sumptuous body work is the same 6.3-liter V12 F12erlinetta. It’s packing 729 hp and 508 lb-ft. That type of power that’ll scoot you to 60 in 3.1 seconds.

Even if you had more than $4,000,000 on deck (the estimated original cost), ready to hand over to Ferrari, that’s not going to automatically get you a TRS. This is a special vehicle for even more special clients, and (if they ever built any more) you would need to be vetted by Ferrari as a worthy owner.
