Ah, one-off Ferraris; they’re beautiful, fast, super-expensive, and you can’t have them. But they are so fun to look at and learn about, as the craftsmen at the Prancing Horse’s Taylor Made bespoke division are experts at injecting subtle changes to an already masterful piece of work to create a stunning beauty that will likely drive auction goers to go mad. And the latest custom F12berlinetta to hail from the Taylor Made program is no exception to this rule.
Meet the F12berlinetta tour de France 64, a four-wheeled dedication car to the 1964 Ecurie Francorchamps team’s Tour de France-winning Ferrari 250 GTO. Shown off at the 2015 Dream Cars Show in Brussels, this custom rig is a perfect example of less is more from the Taylor Made program, as its exterior is slathered in an Argento Auteil hue with a triple-layer cross-stripe on its hood, just like the race-winning car in 1964. No fancy wheels and no body kit; just the stunning F12 with a legendary paint scheme.
Inside the cabin, there are a few more custom bits that require attention. Specifically, the Mahagoni leather seats that create a vintage look but deliver modern feel. Also added in are SuperFabric floor mats and trunk trim, which are made from super-grippy, “bulletproof” material, according to Ferrari. These mats also give the look of the textured, metal floors of old race cars. The Taylor Made folks also added in Mycro side panels and headliner, and aluminum and yellow accents on the bridge and door handles.
Under the hood, Taylor Made left well enough alone, as the F12berlinetta tour de France 64 comes with the mighty 6.3-liter, V-12 engine that delivers 731 ponies and 509 pound-feet of twist. This afford this one-off supercar a 0-to-60-mph sprint time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.
As usual, there are no details on how much this car cost to build and whether it was built for a specific customer, dealer or purely to auction.
