Italian supercar maker Ferrari builds only 7,000 cars a year. To keep the company’s cash flow in check, the marque regularly comes up with one-off models or special editions that earn them big bucks overnight. The division within Ferrari that has been tasked with such special projects is known as the Special Projects division and their latest creation is called the Ferrari F12 TRS.
From the first images of the F12 TRS, it is clear that the one-off model is based on the F12 Berlinetta, except that this one is devoid of a roof and features a unique body. Ferrari hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the F12 TRS yet, and hence the details are limited. But what we do know, is that the special model was commissioned by an affluent customer who reportedly, has shelled out a whopping 4.2 million U.S dollars or Rs 25.2 crore approximately for it.
Besides looking very different from the standard F12 Berlinetta, it is rumoured that the one-off F12 TRS has been equipped with an F1-inspired KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), which simply put, means that for a limited amount of time, the car offers more power out than the stock 740PS from its 6.2-litre V12 engine.
Ferrari has not yet confirmed the name of the one-off model, but we reckon ‘F12 TRS’ will be it, since the marquee trademarked the symbol last week in Italy.
