When the Ferarri F12 Berlinetta was released it was the fastest road-going car Maranello had ever built. They’ve since doubled down with cars like the F12 TDF and now the 812 Superfast, both spectacular cars that would make dreams come true for anyone lucky enough to own one. But what if you’re looking for something a bit more bespoke, something that will stick out even amongst some of the best and baddest supercars on the planet? That’s where specialized, custom-built cars coming straight from the factory come into play, and a prime example of that is this stunning F12 TRS.
Technically, this Liquid Silver F12 TDS is a “one of three,” but it still deserves the title of one of a kind because there isn’t another one set up with this configuration. To break it down to its simplest form, it’s essentially a targa version of the F12. However, its obviously far more than that with a fully reworked rear end, front end, hood, and that’s on top of the fact that it doesn’t have a roof. This wasn’t built by some aftermarket company either. Apparently, this is straight from the Ferrari factory and that means it’s been treated with the same level of care, quality control, and craftsmanship as the rest of Ferraris we all know and love.
If you’re thinking to yourself that it must be extremely expensive to have a company like Ferrari custom build a supercar just for you, you’re exactly right. The F12 Berlinetta wasn’t cheap by any means with a price tag around $320,000, nor was the TDF that was closer to $500,000. And those were considered production models even though the TDF was a limited edition with just 799 examples made. So what does it cost to have the talented folks from Maranello build a one of a kind machine specifically for you? At least $4.2 million according to reports or the cost of 3 LaFerrari’s (when they were first released) and leave you enough change to buy two standard F12 Berlinettas. Try and wrap your head around that.
Two of the three F12 TRS’s that were built were commissioned by the same person. Yes, that likely means this anonymous owner likely had to shell out $4.2 million for each car assuming those are the correct figures. The first one was painted the typical Ferrari red and it was gorgeous. However, my eyes are more drawn to this silver example and I’m sure the owner felt the same way, I mean how could he not? I say that because the silver one has a different front end and doesn’t have a sheet of glass to cover up that gorgeous V12 poking its head up through the hood. It might be a small thing, but I think it makes all the difference in the world.
As far as the performance of the TRS, it’s the same as the standard F12 which means power still comes from a 6.3L V12 pushing out approximately 729hp and 508lb-ft of torque. The owner obviously felt that was more than enough oomph, they just wanted more “pizazz” I guess you could say. It may not be for everyone, the funky looking rear end, the hood with a giant hole in it, and of course the drop top. But that’s ok because it wasn’t built for everyone, was it.
