Ferrari 812 Superfast to be unveiled at Geneva Show
The fastest and most powerful car in Ferrari history will be powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine
Said to be ‘an uncompromising sports car’, the front-engined 812 Superfast is powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that develops 789bhp. With a dual-clutch transmission and some engine trickery derived from F1, that all translates into some performance figures worthy of the car’s name: 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of ‘more than 211mph’.
The car was designed in-house by Ferrari, and its high-tail look is said to echo the 365 GTB4 of 1969. At the front, LED headlights are integrated into the air intakes on the bonnet, while at the rear there are four circular tail-lights in keeping with Ferrari tradition.
Inside, meanwhile, the cabin has been given a sportier look, with the seats, steering wheel and instrument clusters all new.
