    NEW FERRARI LIMITED-EDITION V12: THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN

    ·  The first official photographs of the special version of the 812 Superfast were made available today

    ·  The model’s name and further technical information will be revealed on May 5 during a live-streamed event on Ferrari’s social media channels

    ·  The ultimate expression of Ferrari DNA: exclusivity, a racing soul and the pinnacle of automotive innovation

    ·  Naturally-aspirated V12 unleashes 830 cv at 9,500 rpm for a sensation of endless power and performance

    Maranello, April 21 2021 – The first official images of Ferrari’s latest limited-edition special series have been published in the build-up to its world première, which will be broadcast live on the Maranello marque’s social media channels on May 5 at 14:30 CEST.

    The new model is the ultimate expression of Ferrari’s concept of an extreme front-engined berlinetta, honing the characteristics of the critically-acclaimed 812 Superfast to a level never seen before. The result is a car that encapsulates and epitomises the company’s 70-plus years of experience on the world’s circuits, drawing on its thoroughbred sports car DNA to deliver a perfect marriage of performance, form, and function. Aimed at Ferrari’s most passionate collectors and connoisseurs, it features numerous uncompromising engineering solutions to guarantee peerless driving pleasure.

    As is the case with all Ferrari’s cars, the most striking feature lies at its very heart: in this instance the latest evolution of Maranello’s legendary 65° V12 engine, which reaches the highest output of any Ferrari road-car engine – 830 cv – and revs to 9,500 rpm, again the highest of any Ferrari ICE. The use of state-of-the-art materials, the redesign of many of the engine’s key components, a new valve timing mechanism and a new exhaust system are just some of the technical solutions that allow the most noble of Ferrari engines to deliver performance levels that are unprecedented in the V12 segment.

    The pure yet brutal power unleashed by the powertrain is paired with class-leading vehicle dynamics controls to ensure that the performance can be fully exploited and to guarantee maximum fun behind the wheel. Most distinctive of these solutions is the adoption of independent steering on all four wheels. This extends the feeling of agility and precision when cornering as well as providing unparalleled responsiveness to steering inputs. Another noteworthy engineering achievement is the development work undertaken to reduce the car’s overall weight compared to the 812 Superfast. This was achieved in particular by extensive use of carbon fibre, both on the exterior and in the cockpit. Lastly, the new model premieres version 7.0 of the renowned Side Slip Control vehicle dynamics system.

    One of the most striking aspects of this new model is how in-depth aerodynamic research has altered the car’s lines. Working in close synergy with the Ferrari Styling Centre, the aerodynamicists have adopted solutions that are extreme in form featuring profiles that are unprecedented for a road-legal car. The aerodynamic redesign of the whole car was aimed at maximising downforce levels: from the new front air intakes, rear diffuser and exhaust configuration to the patented design of the rear screen – which now hosts vortex generators – every modification is a faithful expression of Ferrari’s core belief that form must always follow function.

    From a design point of view, this new special series has a strong personality all of its own that differentiates it significantly from the 812 Superfast on which it is based: this was achieved by choosing styling themes that further enhance the architectural design and dynamism of the 812 Superfast, pushing its sporty vocation to new extremes.

    One example of this is the decision to replace the glass rear screen with a single-piece aluminium structure. The vortex generators it sports improve the car’s aerodynamic efficiency, but the design solution chosen, which is fully integrated with the roof, simultaneously creates a backbone effect that underscores the car’s sculptural forms.

    Together with the carbon-fibre blade that traverses the bonnet, this motif changes the overall perception of the car’s volumes: the bonnet seems shorter, emphasising the width of the car, and the tail now has a more powerful, fastback look, thus making it appear more compact and competition-like despite it sharing the 812 Superfast’s silhouette, proportions and formal balance. Even the rear spoiler now looks more imposing: it is higher but the specific design treatment used also makes the tail look very wide, almost horizontal.

    The interior architecture very much reflects that of the 812 Superfast, retaining the main dash and door panel interfaces and volumes, including the signature diapason motif. Along with other elements of the interior, the door panel has been redesigned to reduce weight and, combined with the introduction of the H-gate theme on the tunnel, this lends the cockpit a sportier, more modern edge that reflects the car’s racing spirit.

    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Brilliant, 9.3k rpm on a 6.5 liter is just absurd. Styling will be breathtaking irl as well. I hope dynamically they don't overdo it, the 812 isn't exactly screaming for more nervousness/aggression. But more lightness/involvement can be a very interesting recipe on this platform. 

    Congratulations in advance. wink

    For the most part I can handle a RS. Also, 520HP is more than enough for me. At some point you have to acknowledge to yourself that the car is too much car to handle. I'm not in the business of trying to kill myself.

    Most of these cars will never be driven in anger. I have to tell you though, even a few seconds of this Italian V12 at 6,000 rpm and above will give you a tingle that your Lizard and it’s flat 6 simply cannot match. I speak in all objectivity as I have a whole host of flat 6s as well.


    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    I’m secretly hoping Lamborghini will make an small displacement over square V12 with EV torque fill as the Aventador replacement. That’s a car I would buy... The Targa 812VS looks great cray, please do it and share your spec!

    To be clear, I wasn’t denigrating the car. It looks fantastic. It will garner unwanted attention on the road and while its parked. The power of the car would overwhelm me. There are tingles I can do without. Smiley

    The nice thing about NA engines is that the power is very easy to modulate.  Just because an NA engine has more than 500hp doesn't mean you have to deploy all that power all the time.  It doesn't surprise you like a turbo motor can on occasion. 

    If you shift at lower rpm the torque and power are quite modest (not to mention not using all of the throttle).

    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    I still love the F12, the 812 looks great (the owner of the best looking car is member of rennteam), but this one looks like a Mansory kit. Probably a brilliant car, but a absolute tasteless design. Even a tasteful configuration won't save the overall look.

    Respectfully disagree. I think with the right color combo this car is going to look very very good.

    Right on. If it is not a bit controversial and screams look at me then Ferrari has not done its job.  This one will age well. Some don’t. That is my measure.

    I'm on Itsme's side, the F12 and 812 look great but this version to me looks tasteless.

    I did feel the same about the F12 and 812 when they came out. You get used to it in the end, but pretty cars they are not IMO. That story ended with the 550 for me..

    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Getting rid of the yellow tires and accent lines on the configurator does a lot for the looks.  In dark red or blue it's pretty appealing to my eye.  I don't like how you need either silver or yellow accent lines but I'm sure you could spec one without them.


    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Ferrari is sh-t. I would buy a Porsche. Pure design, no unnecessary curves and the new gt3 will run circles around all the current ferrari lineup. Front engined ferraris ended on f12, which was a real beauty (except rear window). 812 is simply wrong, the base model and all the modifications. Imho:-)

    But yours for example looks great right from the first impression, sporty but very classy with a great stance, the color also helps. But this version I don't think even the pass of time will help, for me at least, it's all subjective obviously.


    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Its funny that the renderings and the real pictures are different. The tyres, spacings, etc. looking way more agressive on the renderings.

    The Coupe looks nice imho but the Apera is a "fail".


    Re: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    This is one ugly car. Nothing more than a money grab.
