A 6.5 Litre V12 engine that is naturally aspirated and churns out 789 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm. These are the most powerful power figures Ferrari has ever revealed of a road car. The 812 Superfast rightly gets its name from its capability to accelerate to 100 kmph in 2.9 seconds and register a top speed of about 340 kmph. The Italian luxury sports car manufacturer says that 80% of torque kicks in at just 3,500rpm. There's a catch though to the claim of being the fastest and most powerful Ferrari since the 812 is the fastest ever road car with the engine on the front. The design is a mix of aggression and elegance, as is the case with most Ferraris, and we expect it to sound just as good too. This is also the first time Ferrari have given their model an electric power steering.
Since it has a front mounted engine, Ferrari put the transmission at the rear for even weight distribution. Also, all that power needs electronic supervision and hence the 812 has a host of vehicle dynamics control systems.
On the inside, it's a bit like the LaFerrari, with ample of sporty features. It has aluminium pedals, flat-bottomed steering wheel with several control buttons and the signature yellow tachometer. Ferrari will offer some optional extras, including a telemetry system, a high-end audio system with 12 speakers and a 1,280 watt amplifier with Quantum Logic as well.
The car will remind you of the F12 Berlinetta, which it is replacing. The name 812 Superfast actually is a reference to the 500 Superfast, which had a V12 engine that made 400 bhp in 1964, and for those times this power figure was a lot! The 812 Superfast is expected to be produced in limited numbers, however, Ferrari has not yet revealed its production plans.
