With Ferrari to celebrate its 70th birthday in 2017, the Italian firm is providing us with a special present- it’s likely to be last non-hybrid V12 supercar. Meet the Ferrari 812 Superfast. As the replacement to the extremely well liked F12 Berlinetta, the 812 Superfast shares much of its looks with its predecessor. Although most of the bodywork appears to be closely similar, Ferrari assures us that every panel you see is brand new. The new styling begins with the large front grille with integrated active aerodynamics and a vented hood that through clever Ferrari witchcraft actually manages to provide downforce with minimal added drag. The F12’s famous “aero-bridge” receives an update, resulting in a cleaner look with greater efficiency. The rear deck of the 812 also sees a vent to release pressurized air from the rear wheel arches while the new taillights mimic that of the GTC4 Lusso and will likely become a popular Ferrari design trait. The 812’s new design is rounded off by a body color painted diffuser although we imagine most Ferrari clients will opt for it in a bare carbon look.
Throughout the F12 Berlinetta’s life, there was never a complaint by journalists or clients alike saying that the F12 lacked power. Jeremy Clarkson (Mr. “Powerrrrrrrr” himself) even claimed that the Berlinetta could have actually done well with a little less power. However Ferrari decided against this statement by not only giving the 812 a power bump from the F12, but even more power than the limited-edition F12 TDF. The 812 Superfast’s 6.3L V12 now produces a ridiculous 789-hp and 503 ft/lbs of torque. Thanks to a new 350-bar direct injection system, 80% of torque is available at 3,500- perfect for launches or just laying long strips of black lines along the road. As seen in the Laferrari Hypercar and currently banned in Formula 1, the 812’s engine also sees a variable intake configuration system. This system can lengthen or shorten the intake leading to cleaner air being fed into the engine resulting in smoother power delivery. A revised version of Ferrari’s F1 dual-clutch transmission promises to deliver even shorter shifts than before while still remaining calm for everyday use.
The 812’s handling is improved by a number of new systems including electric power steering (a Ferrari first), Side Slip Control for drifty tail-happy fun, and even a rear-wheel steering system Ferrari affectionately calls Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0. This rear wheel steering system will either turn with the front wheels to provide smoother high speed maneuvering or can steer against the front wheels to significantly reduce a turning radius resulting in closer apex-hugging action. Lastly an updated Ferrari Traction Control System allows for better everyday usability especially in wet weather while being able to become a tire-smoking track monster at a push of a button.
Although sharing much of it’s interior with the F12, there are a few noticeable differences. First is the new steering wheel with the same amount of mounted controls however a few of the buttons have been integrated together for an overall cleaner look. The air vents have been updated to resemble turbines while the central climate control has been refreshed with a new layout for easier adjustments at speed. Lastly new displays on either side of the central tachometer and in front of the passenger result in cleaner information displayed to the occupants.
As a 70
th birthday present to loyal Ferrari fans and clients, the 812 Superfast certainly pushes all the right buttons. As likely the last Ferrari to feature a V12 and be unassisted by turbochargers or a complicated hybrid system, the 812 is certainly a perfect way to wave goodbye. The Ferrari 812 Superfast competes against the Aston Martin Vanquish, Lamborghini Aventador, and Mercedes S65 AMG Coupe.
