The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been unveiled ahead of the car’s in-the-flesh debut at the Geneva motor show next month.
Launched to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary, the 812 Superfast is a major update of the F12 Berlinetta that was released in 2012. Major design changes include all new body panels, LED headlights, and a quad tail-light setup.
Updates to the interior include a new instrument cluster, revised dashboard with updated metal work, a new steering wheel, the company’s latest infotainment system, and streamlined climate controls. There’s a set of redesigned seats that are said to be more ergonomic.
The 812 Superfast is powered by what’s believed to be the company’s last ever naturally aspirated V12. With capacity expanded by 200cc, the 6.5-litre engine generates a maximum of 588kW of power at 8500rpm, and 718Nm of torque at 7000rpm.
That’s up 44kW and 28Nm from the 544kW and 690Nm generated by the F12 Berlinetta’s 6.3-litre V12.
According to Ferrari, the 812 Superfast has a dry weight of 1525kg, and has a a top speed of over 340km/h. It is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds, a 0.2 second improvement over the F12 Berlinetta and line-ball with the F12 tdF.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with reduced shift times. The 812 also gains the Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 four-wheel steering system, and is the first Ferrari to utilise an electric power steering setup.
