IT’S A Ferrari which more than lives up to its name. The 812 Superfast is the quickest car in the marque’s history, touching 62.5mph in 2.9 seconds and going on to 211mph.
The car is a new 12-cylinder berlinetta and is being shown at the Geneva Motor Show.
This new car not only introduces a plethora of innovative features but is also significant as the V12 series marked the official start of the glorious Prancing Horse story in 1947, 70 years ago this year.
The 812 Superfast thus ushers in a new era in Ferrari 12-cylinder history, building on the legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf in doing so.
It is aimed at those demanding the most powerful and exclusive Ferrari in the range.
The 812 Superfast is powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine and is the new benchmark in the mid-front-engined sports car market.
The new Ferrari is equipped with leading-edge control systems and components, resulting in unparalleled handling and roadholding.
It is the first Ferrari to sport EPS (Electric Power Steering) and has a new version of Ferrari’s Side Slip Control (SSC).
The price and launch date are yet to be confirmed.
