The next speed beast from Ferrari is here! The all-new Ferrari 812 Superfast car was officially announced at the 2017 Geneva motor show.
The upcoming model is made to replace the existing F12 Berlinetta which is powered by a highly potent 6.5-liter V12 engine. The powertrain is capable of producing upto 789 horsepower making it the fastest car from the house of Ferrari. When compared to their other models like the F12tdf, the new 812 is at least 20 horsepower more and it delivers a performance on par with the LaFerrari variant which pulls some of its horsepower from a hybrid engine.
The new model launched at the Geneva show is poised to break speed records. The power generated by the engine is sent directly to the rear wheel for maximum efficiency and it is mated to a dual clutch transmission system for great acceleration. The car can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 211 mph. The car features a Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 version that provides the best handling and control in corners. It adds an extra layer of stability to the car.
A long bonnet adorns the front end of the car which also duly conceals the huge V12 engine and the rear end floats to a seamless buttress that has been designed with best aerodynamics.
With a total weight of about 1,525 kg, the overall design of the Ferrari 812 Superfast is inspired by the 365 GTB/4 from 1969. The rear end looks a lot like the vintage car and the front is dominated by the full LED headlights. The air intake, exhaust and rear diffusers all join together to provide an aggressive perspective to the new Ferrari car. By incorporating active aerodynamic flaps under the bodywork, the team has eliminated the requirement to add spoilers or wings to it.
The cabin is as futuristic as it could get with a floaty appearance and a dashboard that sports a very minimalistic design. The car features sports seats with limited storage space as it was meant to be a superfast car and not an average sedan. The infotainment system has been appropriately upgraded with basic connectivity features. While the brand didn’t reveal the actual pricing of the Ferrari 812, the current model costs £240,000 and the newer one that is faster will definitely go a little extra.
