Overall history of the model

The 812 Superfast is the latest in a very long line of legendary front-engined, RWD, two-seater Ferrari Grand Tourers. This is what Ferrari do, starting with the 250 GT all the way through to the 812 Superfast. Ferrari have been practicing and perfecting this recipe for the last 70 years and the 812 is the culmination of all that engineering perfection.

Powered by a masterpiece in the shape of a naturally aspirated V12 6.5 litre monster producing 789bhp, the 812 will take you from 0–62mph in just 2.9 seconds and on up to 211mph. This might be the greatest engine Ferrari have ever produced and, as such, could quite possibly be the pinnacle of the combustion engine!

This is primarily a road car not a track car. As a GT, it’s designed to take you at speed across continents in comfort and luxury. The driver has all mod cons but no matter how comfortable it is in the cabin, you’ll constantly be reminded of the monster under the bonnet every time you press the throttle. It’s called Superfast for a very good reason!

Ferrari 812 Superfast Deep Dive

Introduced in 2017, the 812 Superfast is essentially a replacement for the F12. With updated transmission, suspension, aerodynamics and steering, the 812 is substantially powered up and 60kg lighter than its predecessor. Other than the LaFerrari hypercar, this is the most powerful production car Ferrari have ever made. 

The 812 is the latest incarnation of a classic Ferrari formula: the two-seater, front-engined, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer. This is a car designed to eat up the miles in style and at speed.

Engine and performance

Powered by a significantly re-engineered version of Ferrari’s F140C engine, originally used in the Enzo and last used in the F12, Ferrari’s engineers have substantially increased the power. This 6.5 litre V12 is the pinnacle in the evolution of the naturally aspirated engine. There are no injectors, superchargers or turbos here. The numbers are almost unbelievable:

•    789bhp
•    0–62mph 2.9 seconds
•    0–124mph 7.9 seconds
•    Top speed 211mph
•    530lb-ft at 7,000rpm

Peak power is delivered at 8,500rpm—just below the 8,900rpm redline. This is an engine that loves to be revved.

Not only is the engine a masterpiece but the seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox is arguably the best Ferrari have ever made. The gear changes are almost immediate and gear ratios are shortened 6% from the F12.

Aerodynamics
Ferrari say that the 812 is “the most aero efficient Ferrari V12 sports car”. Using both passive and active aerodynamics to improve airflow and maximise downforce, the air is taken in at the front and channelled to the brakes for cooling. When the car reaches 180kph, intakes open to direct air to the underbody in order to reduce drag. 

To increase downforce, cooling air is directed to the radiator and then to the sides and underbody. Air intakes on the bonnet send air through the front wheel arches and along the sides. Diffusers at the rear open at high speed to reduce drag.

Technology
The 812 is a large car but thanks to Ferrari’s technology it handles like a much smaller vehicle. This is possible due to Ferrari’s four-wheel steering system (‘Virtual Short Wheelbase’) that is controlled with highly sophisticated electric power steering. 

Suspension has been stiffened compared to the F12 and, in conjunction with the retuned adaptive dampers and Ferrari’s 'Side Slip Angle Control System' (SSC), the car remains planted to the road.

The Brembo Extreme Design brakes, the same as those used in the LaFerrari, are the most efficient Brembo has ever made, stopping the 812 in just 32 metres from 62mph.

Interior
Climb inside the 812 and you’ll be struck by how low to the ground you find yourself and how laid back the driving position is. The bonnet stretches out in front of you,  under which the engine sits in a front-mid layout which gives the 812 almost 50/50 weight distribution. The cabin is a very comfortable and ergonomic place to be, pretty much everything is controlled by buttons mounted on the steering wheel.

The car is equipped with an infotainment system that includes sat nav and also Apple CarPlay, conveniently delivered through personal screens for both the driver and passenger. Being a GT car there is a decent amount of boot space (320 litres—enough to stow a large suitcase) and a shelf, with straps, behind the seats.

Drive
This car is excellent on the circuit but it’s made for the road. When cruising along, the 812 is a satisfying place to be and you quickly feel at ease behind the wheel. It’s perfectly possible to use the 812 Superfast as a daily driver. 

Make no mistake, though, this is a hard-edged super GT car. Ferrari’s aim was to produce “the most riveting and rewarding driving experience possible” and with its all-wheel steering the 812 feels light and agile, handling like a mid-engined supercar. 

Underlying the whole experience is that masterpiece of an engine. What’s startling is how linear and relentless the power delivery is—there are no flat spots. This is a car that will go from 130mph to 150mph in 3.6 seconds, making 80% of its torque available at just 3,500rpm. The Ferrari 812 Superfast is just that, and more!
