The 812 Superfast is the successor to the F12berlinetta that was introduced in 2017. Purity and heritage is the name of the game along with Ferrari’s core ethos in this machine. While Ferrari has looked into modern technologies in some of its models, for the 812 Superfast it has been very particular of what to use or (not to use) as it wants to ensure its purity and heritage are not diluted.
In terms of design, the 812’s design has evolved from the F12berlinetta. Modern styling cues include full LED headlamps, air vents on the bonnet, quad circular taillights and a body-coloured rear diffuser. The two-box, high tail design coincidently resembles that of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona, an original Pininfarina design, though the car was designed at the Ferrari Styling Center.
Despite having powertrain technology expertise in overcharging (turbocharging) and hybrid disciplines, Ferrari has made clear that none of those technologies have found place in this legendary FR (front-engine, rear wheel-drive), V12-engined berlinetta presentation.
As a result is has been able to engineer the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made in the form of a 6,496cc version of the F140 V12 (slightly enlarged compared to the 6.3-litre engine used in the F12 berlinetta). The engine which is mated to a 7-speed F1 dual-clutch automated manual gearbox manufactured for Ferrari by Getrag, based on the gearbox used in the Ferrari 458 produces 789bhp at 8,500 rpm and 718Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.
Slightly heavier than the 488 family at 1,744kg, the 0–100 km/h acceleration time of 2.9 seconds puts the model in super car league. The car has a power to weight ratio of 2.04 kg per horsepower.
