The successor to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is already here and is called 812 Superfast. The name of Superfast may seem pretentious or redundant, but it is a historic name of the brand. In addition, the 812 Superfast is the most powerful series Ferrari in history (the LaFerrari is a limited series so it does not count).
Its atmospheric 6.5-liter V12 develops 800 hp at 8,500 rpm and delivers 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm (but 80% is already available at 3,500 rpm). It accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 s and reaches 340 km / h of maximum speed. Awesome, right? Take advantage of the fact that this engine, which inherits the latest technology from the brand, such as direct injection at 350 bars or intake manifolds with variable geometry, is probably the last purely atmospheric Ferrari engine before the hybridization anticipated by the brand.
Ferrari announces a dry weight of the 812 Superfast of just 1,525 kg, with a 47/53 weight distribution between the front and rear axles. The 812 Superfast equips the version 5.0 of the Side Slip Control (SSC), the direction to the four wheels Passo Corto Virtuale in its version 2.0 (an evolution of the system that equips the F12 tdf ). On the other hand, this Superfast is the first Ferrari to equip an electric power steering instead of a hydraulic assist. Anyway, nowadays, it is the norm.
To keep the car on the ground, the 812 Superfast equips active aerodynamics with movable flaps on the front of the flat bottom and two gills on the rear fins that channel the air and expel it above the rear lights; A sort of integrated spoiler. It is basically the same system that equips the F12 in the front bonnet (and this 812) applied to the rear.
The design, blends traits of the F12 tdf and the latest GTC4 Lusso retaining the base of the Berlinetta F12. As for the interior, it maintains the aesthetic language of the latest productions of the brand with a mixture of tradition and technological aspect.
At the moment, no price is known (it does not matter, when you read this there will already be a waiting list for a couple of years), but we can tell you that the photos show the new Rosso Setanta Anni, to commemorate the 70 years of the mark . Remember that Ferrari took out its first car, already equipped with a V12, in 1947.
