A new LE Special Series Ferrari has been revealed, with a 830cv V12 and unmatched performance, the anticipation and excitement for this Limited Edition Berlinetta happened because of 2 iconic predecessors.
Ferrari’s LE Supercars concentrate the technical innovations: engine performance, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics that are central to Ferrari’s core, to deliver track levels of performance on the road.
The 1st such LE Special Series model was the Ferrari 599 GTO, revealed in Y 2010. Befitting the legendary status of this 12-cyl berlinetta, it was at the time Ferrari’s fastest ever road car.
Then in Y 2015, Ferrari’s 2nd LE Special Series V12 was unveiled, the F12tdf. And it too was the ultimate expression of an extreme road car that is equally at home on the track, and the innovations created a berlinetta that was 2nd to none in terms of acceleration, road holding and agility.
The exclusivity of such technological performance was assured with the limited availability of only 599 examples of the 599 GTO, and 799 F12tdf models, all of which were sold to Ferrari clienti before they were shown publicly. Both the 599 GTO and F12tdf were named to pay homage to legendary vehicles and races in the Prancing Horse’s illustrious past.
The GTO (Gran Turismo Omologata) name instantly calls to mind 2 Ferraris: the 250 GTO, which swept the boards in GT racing in the 1960’s, and the iconic 1984 GTO that essentially invented the modern Supercar lineage.
The F12tdf, it paid homage to the Tour de France, the legendary endurance road race that Ferrari dominated in the 1950’s and 60’s.
The name of the new LE Special Series Ferrari along with the details of its performance attributes will be unveiled on 5 May. Stay tuned…
