The Ferrari Cavalcade is an annual event where Ferrari owners come from around the world to show off their best examples of what Ferrari has offered over the years. This event is seen as an opportunity for Ferrari to show off rare examples and one-offs that come from Ferrari’s Special Projects Division. This year Ferrari unveiled its latest one-off, the Ferrari F12 TRS.
The Ferrari F12 TRS is from the Skunkworks Special Projects Division in Maranello and is based off of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The F12 TRS replaces the coupe bodywork with new roadster sheetmetal that incorporates a glass window to display the iconic red cylinder heads of the V12 engine. The roofless vehicle features a cockpit that is trimmed in leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber. Common items such as the glovebox, air conditioning, carpeting and audio system were not included in this build. Not that air conditioning really makes sense on a car that does not have a roof.
The powerplant behind the Ferrari F12 TRS is similar to that of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The TRS has a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 730 horsepower and is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.
The Ferrari F12 SP America is the latest creation to come out of Maranello’s Special Projects division. This one-off was produced by the Maranello Skunkworks team and is based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta with cues from the 250 GTO. The evidence of the 250 GTO’s influence can be seen in the trio of nostrils in the nose, the unique side vents, and the restyled rear haunches that meld into an integrated rear spoiler.
The Ferrari F12 SP America is a 6.3-liter V12, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The Ferrari F12 SP America produces 730 horsepower with 509 lb-ft of torque and is capable of launching from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds with a standing quarter mile in just 11 seconds.
