At the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, a driving presentation of the Veloqx Fangio supercar, built by the Veloqx racing team on the Ferrari F12tdf chassis, took place. This car was already in the spotlight in the spring of 2021, but then the journalists suggested that it would be called the F125tde (Tour de Espa?a). The two-door is distinguished by panoramic glazing, like Koenigsegg; a two-section rear wing fused with body panels; developed diffuser and exhaust in the style of McLaren.

British team Veloqx is known as the winner of the 12 Hours of Sebring marathon and the silver medalist of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but their new project goes far beyond motorsport. According to reports, the two-door Fangio will be released in a limited series, but neither the cost nor the specifications have yet been announced. Presumably the car uses a Ferrari F12tdf chassis, and its twelve-cylinder engine not only develops about 800 horsepower, but also runs on biofuel.

Visually, the Fangio stands out with Koenigsegg-style panoramic cockpit windows, a two-section rear wing, and a massive diffuser. All this is the result of three years of CFD modeling. Each body curve has been carefully calculated on the computer, which means that air flows do not “get stuck” anywhere and do not cause unnecessary turbulence, plus the car generates more downforce. It is also known that the demonstrator of the supercar is equipped with racing brakes and slicks, like the cars of the LMP2 class.

The usual Ferrari F12tdf was content with a naturally aspirated V12 6.3 with 780 horsepower and 705 Nm of torque, could accelerate to “hundreds” in 2.9 seconds and develop 340 kilometers per hour. But with such an aggressive appearance, Veloqx Fangio simply has to be more powerful than even the limited Daytona SP3, which has 840 hp.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
