When you have a new Ferrari there’s no shortage of details that make the worth mentioning chapter, and it’s best when we let them explain the features one by one.
With a name that is a direct homage to classic models such as the 1960s 500 Superfast flagship, Ferrari’s new 812 Superfast comes as the expected replacement of the F12berlinetta and is even better than the previously limited-run F12tdf. Because the LaFerrari coupe is no longer available and the LaFerrari Aperta has every single example already reserved and probably paid for, this new prancing horse is now effectively Maranello’s flagship model. It’s also the marque’s most powerful and fastest series production model in existence. Naturally, the most important piece is the newest evolution of Ferrari’s iconic naturally aspirated V12 (and also probably the last).
Arriving at a 6.5-liter displacement, the engine delivers 800 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and a good 530 pound-feet (718 Newton-meters) of torque – no turbo or electric assistance is involved. The 812 is also Ferrari’s first ever car with an electric power steering. It’s also the first to gain the company’s second generation rear-wheel steering system aka “Virtual Short Wheelbase”. A faster seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, as well as smart aerodynamic solutions including active flaps, or four round taillights along with a high tail are also on the menu.
