As if the standard F12 Berlinetta wasn’t already special enough, Ferrari has decided to elaborate a bespoke version which serves as a celebration for Singapore’s 50th anniversary since obtaining independence. It was August 9, 1965 when Singapore became a fully independent state and now the local Ferrari dealership Ital Auto has taken delivery of this bespoke F12 which wears the country’s flag colors.
The body of the supercar has received a lovely metallic Rosso Singapore paint available exclusively through Ferrari’s Tailor Made individualization division and for this car the hue has been combined with racing stripes mimicking Singapore’s colors.
It’s the same story on the inside where the red and white colors adorn the cabin and we also notice the racing seats also available via the company’s Tailor Made program. The headrests come with an embroidered lion head as this is the national symbol since 1986 when it was chosen as a logo because the country is also known as the Lion City.
What sets this F12 Berlinetta further apart is the "Singapore 50th Anniversary Edition 1/1" badge on the steering wheel while the side sills come with the same lettering. There’s no word about how much these add-ons cost, but taking into account this is a unique car with the prancing horse logo, you can imagine it wasn’t cheap.
All of the changes are purely esthetical so the F12 employs the same 6.2-liter V12 normally aspirated gasoline engine delivering a massive 740 bhp and 690 Nm. With so much power available, it’s no wonder the supercar sprints to 100 kmph from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds and will continue to accelerate until it hits a top speed in excess of 340 kmph.
It will soon be joined by a more hardcore version likely labeled F12 Speciale (or GTO) which will have an extra 30 bhp while weight is expected to drop by a massive 200 kg.
