Ferrari F12 Berlinetta TRS Details:

  • Debuted at Ferrari Cavalcade event in Italy
  • Based on F12 Berlinetta with inspiration from 1957 250 Testa Rossa
  • One-off creation | Same performance numbers as Berlinetta | 0-62mph in 3.1sec
  • Designed as extreme, two-seater, open top sports car

Before you is what Prancing Horse designers came up with after a client requested a one-off “extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta.” Using a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Centre took direct inspiration from the classic 1957 250 Testa Rossa, with a modern twist. Seen in the photo above, the F12 TRS debuted during the recent Ferrari Cavalcade drive event in Italy amongst 90 other participating cars.

The engine was left alone retaining the same performance numbers as a stock Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The 730hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, as claimed by manufacturer, allows the V12 to reach 0-62mph in a blistering 3.1sec. Modifications were instead focused to exterior, aero and removal of interior components.

The cockpit is sparse and focused wholly on performance. Unnecessary items such as the glove box, central air vents, audio system, window controls, mats and item holders have been removed.

The front nose received sculpting that lead towards the low wraparound windshield. A engine lid window better exposes the painted red cylinder heads – a design feature common to front-engine Ferrari sports cars of the fifties. The F12 Berlinetta aerobridge was also rescultped and now runs back from the flanks of the car. At the rear a longitudinal aerodynamic tunnel that exits a vent under the spoiler links the exterior to the interior and helps decrease air pressure through principals of the Venturi effect. Finally, the paintwork, while appearing close to the traditional Rosso Corsa red, was created using multi-layer and micalised paint tech.
