Ferrari F12 TRS (2014-16)

The Ferrari F12berlinetta (see photos below) is a front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer produced by Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari from 2012 to 2017. 

The Ferrari F12 TRS, based on the F12berlinetta, was developed at a client's request as an extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta. One of the initial inspirations for the project was the 1957 250 Testa Rossa. In fact, the F12 TRS is Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Centre team's modern, innovative take on that legendary car's spirit and pays homage to it in its moniker.

It has the same exceptional performance figures as the F12berlinetta including 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.1 s and 0-200 km/h acceleration in 8.1 s, thanks to the massive 740 cv and maximum torque of 690 Nm at 9,000 rpm unleashed by its 6262 cm3 V12 engine.

Styling differences from the F12berlinetta: from the leading edge of the typically sharp Ferrari nose, aggressively sculpted forms flow back over the bonnet, while a low, wraparound windscreen forms a long dark band of glass in contrast to the car's body. The V12 engine's signature red cylinder heads are visible through a window in the engine lid.

The aerobridge, introduced on the F12berlinetta, has been given a new treatment in this car, resulting in a sculptural design that runs back from the flanks along the entire length of the car. The design of the rear marks an evolution of the T-shaped graphic that characterises the F12's truncated tail and is influenced to some extent by the cabin shape with long fuselage fairings running behind the headrests into the rear spoiler.

The cockpit is light and pared-back to the barest driving essentials, creating a sense of powerful, uncompromising sportiness with no concessions to superfluous comfort. Even some of the controls for the likes of the air conditioning, for instance, have been cut back, while the glove compartment, central air vents, mats, audio system, window controls and odds-and-ends holders have all been removed. (

Originally announced to be an one-off, later two stylings of the Ferrari F12 TRS were noticed. Exact number built could be three, or four. The value of a Ferrari F12 TRS is 4.5 million euros. 


This version made its public debut in Sicily at Ferrari Cavalcade in June 2014. In November 2014 a second F12 TRS of this styling was spotted testing at Circuito Monteblanco in Spain, painted in black, while the red version was displayed again in January 2015 at the Festival Automobile International in Paris.

This version has a glass portion on the front bonnet that allows you to admire part of the V12. Smaller front diffusers, bigger headlights. Four exhaust outputs as are the F12berlinetta from which they come from, and are in sight.


At the Ferrari Cavalcade in June 2015, a new Ferrari F12 TRS appeared with a much more aggressive front splitter and totally new and smaller headlights; Moreover, the opening on the engine hood that puts the Italian V12 in a good view does not have any glass cover , which allows you to admire the engines head without any "filter".

Unpublished are also the most distinctive side mirrors , and at the rear, a highly elaborate and aggressive diffuser, from which, in the lower part, the two hidden exhaust outputs emerge; while on the other TRS from 2014, there are four outputs. Different trimming materials on the dashboard. (
