Gordon Ramsay's Ferrari F12 TDF Mixes Fuji Bianco with Matte Stripes

It's no secret that Gordon Ramsay is just as demanding as a driver when he puts on his VIP chef hat. The British nutrition magician likes his Ferraris raw, so when Maranello came up with the F12 Tour de France, Ramsay simply couldn't say no.

The famous chef is one of the first F12 TDF customers to takes delivery of the car, with the rumor mill talking about his jacked up F12 being the first of its kind in London.

Ramsay was spotted enjoying the Grand-Tourer-gone-wild in the British capital last weekend, with the videos below showing us the man's customization choices for his Prancing Horse.

The machine is dressed in a shade of White the automaker calls Bianco Fuji, but this is only half the story. That's because Ramsay's TDF comes with matte black and grey stripes.

Being used to public attention, Ramsay took the time to interact with the car spotters that followed him around for the vehicle's "shakedown," offering them all the time in the world to interact with his latest ride.

This only comes to show the famous chef appreciates a naturally aspirated beast. After all, he didn't buy the F12 TDF while seeking ultimate numbers with a Ferrari badge, which come in the LaFerrari.

And that's because Ramsay did that back in 2015. In fact, the man seems to have made a habit out of March deliveries, as this is the month of last year that saw him taking on London in his monster hybrid.

However, it's not like the Prancing Horse aficionado has stayed off the Fezza drug meanwhile. For instance, Ramsay visited Maranello last fall, with one of the aims being to take the 488 GTB for a spin.

P.S.: This is a good occasion to remind you that the F12 TDF's 769 hp (780 PS) V12 isn't too far from the 789 hp (800 PS) engine that makes up the suck-squeeze-bang-blow part of the LaF's powertrain.
