The much anticipated replacement for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has been revealed, and it is quite the swan song for what is expected to be the final naturally aspirated V12 from the prancing horse. This is the Ferrari 812 Superfast and it is the most powerful series production Ferrari ever.
We will be at the Geneva Motor Show to bring you more on this new supercar.
Whilst it maintains a strikingly similar overall silhouette to the F12 Berlinetta, its design details are considerably more aggressive. Aerodynamically the Superfast manipulates the air around it through an intricate series of ducts, channels, and vents that run its length. There are also active aerodynamic flaps that can change their profile to boost downforce further. It is certainly a sinister looking machine.
Under that long bonnet is a 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces a colossal 789 BHP and 530lb ft of torque. That performance potential is then sent to the rear wheels via a 7 speed dual clutch gearbox. 0-62 MPH takes just 2.9 seconds and its top speed is said to be greater than 211 MPH. If those numbers sound familiar, that is because they match the potent F12 TDF. Imagine what Ferrari will do with their high performance model of the Ferrari 812 Superfast. A Ferrari first is electric power steering, but this is said to be intricately tied-in to the ever entertaining side-slip control.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but the car will go on sale at its public debut in Geneva.
