Ferrari just unveiled the most powerful and fastest car in its history. The 812 Superfast is expected for the 87th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show in few days.
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the new 812 Superfast redefines the formal language of front-engined V12 Ferraris, underlining the car’s exceptional performance with very sporty lines and proportions.
Seen in silhouette, the 812 Superfast has a fastback sleekness: a two-box design with a high tail reminiscent of the glorious 365 GTB4 of 1969. The design of the flanks visually shortens the tail and is characterised by impressively muscular wheelarches which imbue the 812 Superfast with the power and aggression warranted by its imposing V12. Full-LED headlights integrated into the design of the sculpted air intakes on the bonnet also emphasise that front muscle, integrating with, and wrapping around the front wheelarch.
At the rear, four round tail-lights inspired by Ferrari tradition emphasise a design crafted around horizontal lines and give the 812 Superfast a broad, imposing stance, visually lowering both spoiler and cabin.
The Italian perpetuates the tradition of the coupés 2 places animated by atmospheric V12. Ferrari made no concessions on this subject. This block already used on other models has increased its displacement to 6496 cm3 allowing it to display a power of 800 hp, against 740 hp before, and a torque of 718 Nm, against 690 Nm before.
This propulsion, which uses a 7-speed double-clutch gearbox, reaches 100 km / h in only 2.9 s while the maximum speed announced would be 340 km / h. To achieve these preformances, Ferrari was naturally inspired by the F1 engines.
The 812 Superfast is the first Ferrari to be equipped by the EPS which is used to fully exploit the potential of the car’s performance and above all to make its powerful performance easier to handle and even more thrilling to exploit.
