No, it’s not Ferrari’s first diesel as the name might seem to imply, tdf stands for Tour De France. Not for the bicycle race that this front-engine V12 supercar has nothing to do with, but for the long ago motor race of the same name. More importantly, what the tdf means is more power and more sharp-edged performance than the standard F12, that and knowing you have those three letters on the end of the badge. You want some cool tech to help real in all that power? Well meet VSW or Virtual Short Wheelbase. That is a fancy way of saying rear-wheel steering. With a tail-happy tendency the VSW is there to help real it in a bit although not enough to ruin the fun of it. What is the true appeal of a front-engine V12 Ferrari? One single rev to the 8,900 rpm redline will answer that.
