The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a fantastic vehicle, but understanding its heritage can cause quite a headache. To make things more daunting, the iconic Italian coachbuilder, Touring Superleggera, has decided to throw its own unique twist onto the F12 with yet another specialized, limited-production example — the Aero 3.
Drawing its aerodynamic inspiration from lauded progenitors like the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 and 8C 2900 B, as well as the 1939 Mille Miglia-winning BMW 328 Touring Berlinetta, the Aero 3 is a testament to decades-old design. Not only does it adopt a re-bodied, carbon-fiber-imbued coach that shaves almost 330 pounds from the original vehicle, but it’s also been treated to a large, all-encompassing wing extending from its rear. While this serves little to no aerodynamic purpose, it channels the unique aesthetic qualities of vehicles from the middle of the 20th century, complementing its naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12. What’s not so traditional, however, is the fact that this retrospective wonder now harbors around 730 horsepower, allowing it to reach rocket from 0-62 miles-per-hour in under 3.1 seconds. While the price for the Aero 3 is still unknown, you can head to Touring Superleggera’s website for more information on the build. If you’re one of the few who would like to inquire about ownership, act fast — only 15 models are slated for production.
