On the occasion of the 87th edition of the Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari presented the world premiere Ferrari 812 Superfast, the most powerful and performance street model in the history of the Italian brand.
The 812 Superfast, exceptional heir to the extraordinary F12 berlinetta y F12tdf, is aimed at a type of customer who is looking for the most performance and exclusive Ferrari in the range, and who wants a vehicle that transmits maximum sportiness both on the road and on the track. All this without sacrificing the comfort necessary to intensely enjoy a Ferrari in a captivating way.
Powered by a new 12-liter V6.5 engine delivering 800 hp, the 812 Superfast sets a new benchmark among front mid-engined sports cars. With a maximum power reached at 8.500 revolutions per minute and a specific power of 123 hp / l, values never obtained in the past by front engines in series models, it exalts the sensation of extreme sportsmanship, especially at high revs, the latter being a hallmark of the V12 Ferrari.
The power of the engine is enhanced by the sound of the exhaust, full and enveloping, which is characteristic in an engine of such high displacement.
It has also been possible to achieve this level of performance thanks also to the adoption for the first time in a highly performance engine of the direct injection system at 350 bar, together with the intake ducts of variable geometry derived from the F-1 aspiration engines. The double clutch transmission provides specific registers that have reduced the times of the gear changes both when raising and lowering them. This guarantees an even more exceptional throttle response.
The 812 Superfast is equipped with state-of-the-art control systems and components that give you an unparalleled level of driving. Is he first Ferrari equipped with EPS (Electric Power Steering), an electric power steering, which is used to increase performance and driving fun by integrating it with the other systems and controls present in the vehicle, including version 5.0. of the patented Ferrari Side Slip Control (SSC) system. It also includes the Short Passo Virtuale 2.0 system (PCV) which, thanks to the accumulated experience in the system implemented for the first time in the F12tdf, has been subsequently evolved increasing the agility and reducing the response times of the new 12-cylinder berlinetta.
Designed at the Ferrari Style Center, the 812 Superfast redefines the code of reading of previous Ferrari V12s by underlining, with its highly sporty shapes and proportions, the vehicle's exceptional level of performance.
Starting from the silhouette, the fastback connotation is noticeable, with two volumes at the rear that are reminiscent of the 365 GTB of 1969. The design of the side optically shortens the rear and is characterized by prominent muscles on the wheel arch, which give giving the vehicle a sense of power and aggressiveness that honors the performance of the powerful V12. Full-LED optics integrated into the design of the sculpted hood scoops help emphasize the front muscle with a covered effect that wraps around the front wheel.
At the rear, the four round headlights inspired by the Ferrari tradition highlight a design built on horizontal lines and give the 812 Superfast a very imposing and elongated attitude, visually reducing the height of the spoiler and the cabin.
As with all Ferraris, style and aerodynamic functions are best embodied in innovative forms and solutions. Two examples are the multifunctional front that integrates, among others, the entrance to the dynamic doors on the front part of the bottom, and the rear fender that presents an unprecedented aerodynamic by-pass to increase the load.
The interior has been revised in line with the more extreme appearance of its exterior, preserving the exceptional space and comfort on board that Ferrari 12-cylinder berlinettas have always displayed.
The interior benefits from a greater sporty characterization with a floating effect between the main components that, when combined, all convey a purely sporty spirit, but at the same time refined and essential. The dashboard has a horizontal structure that crosses and encompasses the ventilation holes and creates a metallic structure.
The new seats are distinguished by optimized ergonomics and a light, sporty style. One more novelty is the human-machine interface with a new steering wheel and instrumentation, together with the latest generation infotainment and air conditioning system.
La Ferrari 812 Superfast began to be marketed in Argentina at a price of one million dollars and it is the most expensive 0 km on the market.
