Ferrari has come up with a very appropriate name as the 812 Superfast is the most powerful & fastest front engined Ferrari in history. To be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the new 812 Superfast is the latest V12 Ferrari to grace the stable.
The 6.5L V12 engine delivers a very strong 789 hp (588 kW) with 80% of the 713 Nm of torque comes on at just 3500 rpm. The performance figures are just shy of the LaFerrari, with 0-62 mph coming in at an incredible 2.9 seconds, on the way to a top speed of over 211 mph. This extra power is attributed to a high-pressure, 350 bar direct fuel injection system paired with variable intake tracts. The gearbox is an improved version of Ferrari’s dual-clutch unit.
To help keep all this power on the road, Ferrari has included Side Slip Control, and a system called Virtual Short Wheelbase, which was developed from the Ferrari F12tdf. This should increase the nimbleness and responsiveness of the car. And with a first for any Ferrari road car, the 812 Superfast is fitted with electric power steering, departing from the electro-hydraulic systems of the past.
