UPDATE: New official photography added, snapped at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Ferrari’s special F12-based TRS has made another outing, this time at the legendary Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This latest showing follows the car's official first appearance at the annual Ferrari Cavalcade in Sicily last week.
Developed through Ferrari’s ongoing Special Projects program, the TRS is a one-off model produced for a customer seeking that little something more.
The TRS is based on the top-shelf F12berlinetta that was revealed in 2012, adding a host of bespoke styling elements. And, unlike the regular model, this special has gone topless.
Built as an open-top roadster inspired by race-focused ‘barchetta’ cars of decades past, the F12 TRS gets a short and extra slippery windscreen designed with the side windows to produce a full wrap-around effect.
The TRS was designed by the Ferrari Style Centre’s Flavio Manzoni, responding to the buyer’s request for an “extreme, two-seater, open-top sports barchetta”.
Ferrari’s SP division says that the 1957 250 Testa Rossa was a key inspiration for the TRS - hinting at the meaning of the new model’s name.
Previous reports had suggested the TRS would feature a KERS-style hybrid system, although Ferrari has this week confirmed that power is provided by the same 544kW 6.3 litre V12 that drives the F12berlinetta.
The new special’s performance numbers are also shared with the F12, with Ferrari SP promising a 0-100km/h time of 3.1 seconds, while hitting 200km/h from a standing start will take just 8.5 seconds.
And the cost? Ferrari isn’t saying, but the TRS is rumoured to have topped AU$4.5 million.
In fact, you could almost buy them all twice.
