Based on the F12 Berlinetta, the car 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 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. In fact, the F12 TRS is Ferrari design chief Flavio Manzoni and the Ferrari Style Center team’s modern, innovative take on that legendary car’s spirit and pays homage to it in the “TRS” part of its title.
Though previously thought to feature a KERS-style hybrid system, Ferrari has confirmed that the F12 TRS features the same powertrain and performance specs as the stock F12 Berlinetta on which it’s based. This means power still comes from a 6.3-liter V-12 engine￼ tuned to deliver 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. This ensures 0-62 mph acceleration in just 3.1 seconds and a top speed in excess of 211 mph.
