Ferrari 812 Super fast – The Beast
The 812 is the most powerful ferrari ever.Ferrari unveiled its latest cannon today, ahead of next month’s Geneva International Motor Show: The 812 Superfast marks Maranello’s fastest, most powerful production car ever.
812 replacing the F12 Berlinetta ,is a 6.5-litre V12 with 789bhp. Yikes. That makes it nearly 60bhp healthier than the old F12’s 6.3-litre V12. This 6.5 is Ferrari’s most powerful naturally aspirated engine yet. Quite fitting, giving it may just be its last.
That peak power is delivered at 8,500rpm, by which point the noise is doubtless spectacular. Peak torque – 530lb ft, since you ask – arrives little earlier, at a still dizzying 7,000rpm. God, we’ll miss turbo-free engines.
The styling is rather more complex than the pretty F12’s, with quad taillights, new air intakes up front and all manner of aerodynamic aids, such as active flaps and that incongruously red rear diffuser. Though conversely it looks like the F12’s open front fender ‘aero bridge’ has been closed off. The lights are all LED while the colour is apparently new, though still very recognisably rosso.
Inside, there’s a new steering wheel and resdesigned instrument clusters, but if you didn’t like Ferrari’s approach to ergonomics before, you’re not going to be suddenly won over. The 812 Superfast is an evolution rather than revolution over the F12 Berlinetta.
We’ll see the Ferrari 812 Superfast at the 2017 Geneva motor show, which opens in early March. We should have a better idea of its tech, aero and perhaps pricing then, too. Though it’s safe to say you’ll need at least £250,000, and a modestly specced 812 will pass £300,000 fairly quickly
