Roger Penske, the 83-year old retired racer that is best known for his roles as the owner of Team Penske and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has quite the collection of rare and desirable cars. This limited-run 2016 Ferrari F12tdf is one of them, and it’s going up for auction in March.
Listed for sale on Mecum Auctions, this F12tdf is one of just 799 ever made. The “tdf” part of its name stands for “Tour de France”, which was a sports car race held on the streets of France between 1899 and 1986. Compare to the standard F12, the tdf features an extra 39 hp (40 PS / 29 kW) and 11 lb-ft (15 Nm) of torque, coming in at 769 (780 PS / 574 kW) and 520 lb-ft (705 Nm) from its 6.3L V12. In addition to that extra power, the tdf also weighs 242 lbs (110 kg) less than the regular F12.
This car in particular is finished in Rosso Corsa over a black and red Alcantara interior, and it features a whopping $54,913 in options. Most of those come from carbon fiber replacements for normal pieces, such as the rear shelf, rear bench trim, air filter box, fog lamps, headlight buckets, and under-door cover. The material also features on the exterior trim, vents, intakes, and rear diffuser.
The car comes with 20-inch alloy wheels on Pirelli P Zero tires, which frame a set of red brake calipers. It also includes an air compressor, car cover, battery tender, books, tools, two keys and the original window sticker, ensuring that its next owner knows how well it’s been preserved.
The rarity and desirability of this car, combined with its famous owner, should make it a good buy for anyone who has the finances to allow it. It will cross the auction block at Mecum’s Glendale auction in March.
