Ferrari revealed their latest creation which will be presented on the Geneva Autoshow in March: the 812 Superfast.
First thing first; it’s not a completely new car in the V12 series. It rather is a facelift of the current F12berlinetta. Most remarkable changes are the historical double rear lights, the bigger front grille and the new headlights.
Ferrari claims it’s the most powerful and fastest Ferrari they ever made. Enzo Ferrari started his company 70 years ago so this is the perfect homage to all V12 cars from the past. Under the hood, we have the all-new 6,5-litre V12 pushing out 789 bhp at 8500 rpm. Torque is from the same insanity level; 526 lb ft. at 7000 rpm, with already 80% available from around 3500 rpm. It’s the first Ferrari using Electric Power Steering which will be supported by all kind of other electronic systems like the Side Slip Control. This will help the driver not to crash while drifting.
The Ferrari Styling Centre designed the car and they used some historical design tweaks, the silhouette of the 812 reminds of the 365 GTB/4. Another cool thing about the launch car is the name of the paint: Rosso Settante. And guess what, settante is Italian for seventy!
