Set to be seen with a host of innovative new features and distinctive exteriors, the Ferrari 812 Superfast will target customers in the need for speed. It offers outstanding performance both on road and track and is powered by a 6.5 liter V12 engine offering 588 kW (800 cv) peak power at 8,500 rpm. Peak torque stands at 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm while 80% of this is available at 3,500 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 is achieved in 2.9 seconds while top speed stands at 340 kmph.
Ferrari 812 Superfast measures 4,657mm in length, 1,971mm in width and 1,276mm in height. It gets an imposing exterior makeup in a two box design with high tail as seen on the 365 GTB4 of 1969. Full LED headlights, a massive bonnet and four round tail lamps at the rear are also noted.
Interiors boast of extra space and added comfort while sportier design elements are also evident. Seating is sporty with better ergonomics with a new HMI, new steering wheel and instrument clusters and the most up to date infotainment system.
