The 812 Ferrari Superfast, the Newest Italian Widowmaker

By in Rides on

Italian supercar manufacturer, Ferrari, has been constructing fine-tuned ways to kill you in style since 1940. Admirers say Ferrari engineering is perfect. They’re so good, so stylish, and so fast that nobody gives a damn that they’re all the same color.

It’s hard to imagine they could actually do better than the inimitable 250 GTO, or the ultra classic 288 GTO, but- they have. Enter, the 812 Superfast: the car so fast that having a stupid name doesn’t harm it even slightly.

The 812 Superfast brings in a new age in Ferrari’s whip-bang 12-cylinder history, and in so doing, has built on the unmatched legacies of their F12berlinetta and F12tdf. The 812 Superfast is meant to appeal to those who demand the most powerful, exclusive, and red- yes it is somehow unusually red. The Superfast is a hard-line ultra-high performance sports car that delivers exhilarating motoring on the road and on the track. Even still, it manages to also be quite comfortable, allowing owners enjoy it as a complete automobile experience.

Propelled by a 6.5-litre V12 powerhouse that churns out 800 cv, the 812 Superfast represents a new benchmark in mid-front-engined sports cars, achieving a max output of 8,500 rpm. No other front-engined production car has ever come close to delivering that much snarl. It’s the kind of thrill-ride performance that makes the 812 Superfast so exclusive.

On the exterior, it looks like it shouldn’t even need an engine to break track records- it’s sleek as you please, with a roundness that’s rather modern, and something we haven’t seen on a Ferrari since the 1957 Ferrari 250 TR.

Ferrari has yet to name a price, but experts estimate it will fall into the range of “High.”
