The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was, by all means, an impressive stamp of engineering. However, Ferrari have now pulled the cover for their new top-of-the-range grand tourer in advance of its Geneva showing. Introducing – the 812 Superfast.
The front mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, but it seems Maranello couldn’t wait and has revealed the F12 Berlinetta’s successor to us ahead of that. Ferrari have said in a statement:
“This new car not only introduces a plethora of innovative features but is also particularly 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, in doing so building on the invaluable legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf. It is aimed at clients demanding the most powerful and exclusive Ferrari in the range: an uncompromising sports car that will deliver exhilarating driving both on road and track yet also be comfortable enough to allow its owners to enjoy it as an all-round experience.”
With a larger 6.5 litre V12 engine, the motor has a claimed top speed over 210mph and a 0-100kmph/0-62mph acceleration time of 2.9 seconds. The engine puts out 780 horse power, and is sure to impress.
To top all of that off, it looks absolutely stunning!
