The Ferrari 812 Superfast was the latest model to be released by the Italian carmaker in 2018. Designed to replace the F12 Berlinetta, the 812 Superfast was supposed to be even better than its predecessor. For fans of the F12, the thought of a better Ferrari was simply unthinkable. Yet the 812 Superfast is just that, better than the Berlinetta.
The new Ferrari is stronger, sleeker and faster than the F12. It has better handling in the steering, better overall control, and the 60 horsepower increase in the engine size is definitely noticeable. When you press the gas pedal, the car does not hiccup or hesitate, it moves. In fact, the 812 Superfast reaches 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
This is a powerful car that may take a good hour to get used to driving because it is responsive in every way. You literally have to toe-tap the gas to get it started moving in city traffic, and you barely have to brush the wheel to get it to move and change lanes. It is not a car for the lighthearted,
The engine is a true Ferrari masterpiece. This is a 789-horsepower V12, naturally aspirated engine. The engine is a 6.5-liter masterpiece with 530 pounds of torque. It is a precision engine that hums as if it were a musical instrument.
Ferrari increased the size of the engine by 60 horsepower over the Berlinetta’s engine. They believed that this small increase would lead to a significant power increase in performance, and they were right. You would not think that you would feel the difference, but you can.
This specific engine has been fine-tuned and remastered and can be considered one of the most magnificent front engine – rear drive engines designed in the industry. Ferrari has stated that for the purposes of heritage, the 812 Superfast, or any of its future generations, will not have supercharged or hybrid technologies incorporated into the engine.
The transmission is a perfected dual-clutch 7-speed automated manual gearbox. It was designed similar to the Ferrari 458 gearbox. The transmission runs smoothly, even at extraordinarily high RPMs.
The 812 Superfast will push the transmission to the limits. Even in second gear, you can feel the car fishtail if you give it too much gas, and you may even feel this a little in third gear. The gears move smoothly and are easy to shift.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast has had upgrades to its aerodynamic design over the F12 Berlinetta. The company wanted to make sure that for heritage reasons it retained a certain body structure and appearance that is relevant to the F series, but it wanted to increase its aerodynamic features.
The 812 Superfast features new front-end designs that are made to increase downforce and intake areas to help cool the brakes. The sides of the vehicle were designed to decrease drag and improve air flow, and the rear of the vehicle has been constructed with flaps that open at high speeds to increase downforce.
Ferrari was very specific about these designs, and the improvement is one of the reasons that the small increase in horsepower seems to have such a large increase in performance.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been made to be very similar to its predecessor in overall appearance. However, Ferrari wanted to give this new vehicle some of its own personality as well. The 812 has some features that are distinctly its own.
The 812 Superfast has LED headlights and quad circular taillights. There are air vents on the hood and a body colored air diffuser in the rear. The tail area of the car is designed to be more similar to the 365 Daytona design than the Berlinetta.
The interior looks more like the ones designed for the LaFerrari, and the control panels are similar to those found in the Portofino. Overall, the 812 Superfast seems to be a total culmination of all of Ferraris best cars.
The vehicle is fitted with 20-inch Perelli’s for both front and back wheels. However, the back wheels are much wider than the front for better traction and control. The braking system is also more effective than the ones found in the Berlinetta. The vehicle weighs in a 3,895 pounds, which is almost 150 pounds lighter than the F12 Berlinetta.
Other small changes are found throughout the vehicle so that it can be considered its own unique design.
