Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, directed by Flavio Manzoni, the F12tdf shows a continuous commitment to melding sculptural beauty with functional demands. A radical redesign of the bodywork, interior, engine, transmission and running gear, along with the abundant use of carbon-fibre inside and out, has slashed 110 kg off the car’s overall weight. In terms of the formal design language, the objective was to create a sophisticated interaction between the sculptural surfaces of the F12berlinetta and a more graphic treatment of the various new aerodynamic features. The best testament to this intent is the evolution of the Aerobridge, the design of which is further enhanced by the use of bare carbon-fibre. The car’s uncompromising sportiness is expressed with the same degree of purity in the deliberately Spartan cockpit. The wrap-around effect that embraces the driving position is intensified by the use of carbon-fibre housings for the instruments and satellite pods. Alcantara rather than the traditional leather was chosen for the cabin trim, technical fabric for the seats and patterned aluminium for the floor, once again with the aim of saving every last ounce of weight.
