Ferrari has unveiled a new hardcore track model, F12 Tour de France(F12tdf).

According to the carmaker, this vehicle is a "concentration of technical innovations which involve all those areas central to Ferrari’s DNA: engine, aerodynamics and vehicle dynamics."

This debut was at the recent Finale Mondiali event at the Mugello Circuit.

Although, other hardcore track models were showcased, the F12tdf, which comes in both red and yellow, had everyone's eye.

Features of Ferrari’s track-focused vehicle include a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 which goes from 719 hp to 770 hp, race-inspired mechanical tappets and variable-geometry intake trumpets,  F1 dual-clutch transmission with 6% shorter gear ratios that deliver 30% faster upshifts and 40% faster downshifts, a new Virtual Short Wheelbase system.

Named in honour of the Tour de France, an endurance race which Ferrari dominated back in the 1950s and 60s, it goes from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds.

It's top speed is 211 mph.

I think it is amazing, do you agree?
