Rare Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Could Be Yours

Gorgeous Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon Listed For Sale

We at Enzari we can’t get enough of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 models. Over the years the Italian automaker has wowed the world with some of the fastest and most beautiful looking car’s but the best of the best are without a doubt Ferrari’s front-engined V12 models. Some of my personal favourite Ferrari V12 flagship models over the years include the now legendary Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, the Ferrari 550 Maranello and more recently the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was officially unveiled by Ferrari at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and even though the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has since been replaced by the totally insane Ferrari 812 Superfast, it is one of my favourite front-engined V12 Ferrari models of recent years and it’s not hard to see or understand why.

However good the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta may be, it was offered to anybody who could afford one and therefore it is not exactly a rare automobile. If you are looking for a rare Ferrari which is based on the F12 Berlinetta you could always opt for a one-off creation from Ferrari’s Special Projects Division or you could get yourself a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon. Three years ago Ferrari celebrated their 70th anniversary and in order to mark 70 fantastic years of Ferrari, the Italian automaker produced 350 bespoke Ferrari’s with each vehicle featuring a distinctive livery inspired by the Italian automaker’s rich history. To be more precise, Ferrari chose 70 bespoke liveries for potential buyers to choose from, all of which were inspired by Ferrari’s of the past and present as well as numerous figureheads which were associated with the brand, like Micheal Schumacher and Ingrid Bergman.

All 70 of these bespoke liveries were available for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Ferrari GTC4Lusso, Ferrari 488 GTB, Ferrari 488 Spider and the Ferrari California T. All 350 70th Anniversary Style Icons were completed by Ferrari’s Tailor Made Division and each vehicle is a one-of-a-kind, meaning each Style Icon got its own name and was created just once for each model in the then Ferrari line-up. Even though Ferrari 70th Anniversary Style Icons are pretty rare and highly sought after today, every so often we do see these very special Ferrari’s hit the pre-owned market or cross the auction block and that brings us to the vehicle featured in this article. What you are drooling over ladies and gentlemen is a 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon “The French Allure” and this particular piece of Ferrari history is currently listed for sale at Ohio based exotic automobile dealership Marshall Goldman.

The French Allure livery is №25 of 70 and it pays homage to the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta. As a result, this 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta features an eye catching Grigio Alloy exterior paint finish which is complemented by an Avorio livery, matte finished Grigio Alloy 20-inch forged wheels, matte black lower plastic parts, matte black external grilles, a bespoke chrome front radiator grille with horizontal bars and 70th Anniversary exterior quarter panel badges. Inside, you will find an interior which has been tastefully upholstered in a blend of Dune and Nero leather as well as a series of interior trim pieces which feature a Grigio Alloy finish. Also present inside is a long list of niceties including a Giallo Modena (Yellow) rev counter, matte black cupholders, 70th Anniversary badges between the front seats, a passenger dashboard display and a carbon fiber key fob just to mention a few.

Powering this gorgeous 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon is a 6.3 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine from the Ferrari F140 engine series. This high performance powerplant has an overall power output of 730 hp (544 kW) and 690 Nm of torque. Mated to the 6.3 littre, naturally aspirated V12 powerplant is a 7-speed dual-clutch automated semi-automatic ‘paddle shift’ transmission, which sends all of the engine’s power directly to the rear wheels. This set-up allows the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta to sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and it can reach a claimed top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). According to the official vehicle listing, this 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon has covered a mere 257 kilometres (160 miles) since leaving the factory which means it is just about a brand new vehicle.

As mentioned earlier in this article, the vehicle featured is currently looking for a new home and has been listed for sale by Ohio based exotic automobile dealership Marshall Goldman. As for price, well when new this 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary Style Icon cost a whopping $473,738.34 with nearly $150,000 of optional extras. However, if you want to add this piece of Ferrari history to your car collection, it can be yours for a more reasonable $398,900 and that includes ” a carbon fibre key box, Ferrari Classiche certification, owners books, both keys, original window sticker and much more.”
Thats one very special car for somebody’s lucky collection…
