New Ferrari 812 Superfast Looks The Business In Yellow

Just a few short days after Ferrari presented the manic 812 Superfast to the world, the first real-life images of the final naturally-aspirated V12 Ferrari have surfaced online thanks to Instagram user only_812superfast.

Unlike the original depicted in the factory renderings last week, the 812 in question is painted yellow and looks absolutely sensational.

Although the model’s ‘Superfast’ name hasn’t pleased everyone, it is hard to deny that its exterior styling is eye-catching. In fact, these images show that in the flesh, the 812 looks like a one-off from the brand’s Tailor Made division based around the F12tdf. It is, of course, an entirely new model that’ll be offered to the public as a fitting send-off to the marque’s screaming V12.

The figures of the 812 Superfast are truly phenomenal. It utilizes a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine delivering 800 PS (789 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 718 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. This allows the 812 to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds and a 340 km/h (211 mph) top speed, figures identical to the F12tdf.

The 812 Superfast is also important for Ferrari as it is its first model installed with electric power steering. It’ll be intriguing to see if Ferrari has pulled off the use of this controversial technology.

Thanks to Rocco for the tip!

    i love how they resurrected the storied Superfast name from the pages of history

    • PB

      Yes and yes. I wonder how many of these critics don’t appreciate Ferrari’s broader history.

    • Jorge Teixeira

      Are my eyes deceiving me, or am I really reading a comment from someone who knows stuff? Anyway, it’s a welcome departure from all those “C’mon peeple, wez know da car iz Superfast, LOL” comments from a few days ago

    That rear bumper treatment sets itself up nicely to be painted all-black on a hardcore ‘GTO’-esque version.

    Yellow only highlights how gaudy this car’s styling is. And this will piss people off but Ferrari used to set the trend when it came to styling. Now it seems they’re copying everybody else. That C-Pillar (from the front) and the rear afterburner lights are straight off the new Ford GT. And the front clip is the current Corvette.

    • Jorge Teixeira

      Last time I checked, it was Ferrari who came up first with the circular-shaped tail lights. And when the current Corvette was launched, its design was upvoted as being “like a Ferrari”. Oh, and the Ford’s C-pillar is a straight rip-off from the Ferrari 599, by the way…

      • Bo Hanan

        1. who said anything about circular tail lights? And Ferrari has no previous car with afterburner taillights.
        2. Corvette has stayed true to its historical design more than Ferrari.
        3. “Last time (people with a clue) checked” Fords c-pillar is functional, the 599’s is cosmetic.
        4. You remind me of my niece. She’s 12 and a 1/2, and ballsy.

        • Jorge Teixeira

          “the 599’s C-Pillar is cosmetic”? I’m so sorry, I didn’t realize I was talking to an expert in aerodynamics.
          And the Corvette’s design language has stayed true to its history? I can’t think of two cars that are more different than, say, the current one or the Sting Ray from the 60’s, but I guess you’re also an expert on car design
          Regarding #4, I won’t compare you with anyone in my family, you’re just Some Random Guy On The Internet With A Clue About Something Or Other…

          • Bo Hanan

            Your last response merely repeated what I had said. Which means you didn’t say anything. (in a whispering voice) “I love that…”

  • mb4design

    Looks “Fly” in yellow.

  • LexusGXman

    Rear panels aren’t lining up well.I thought I was looking at a Viper from the front. This car is quite the departure from Ferrari tasteful Italian styling, the 458 was the last beautiful Ferrari but elites will continue to eat them up.

  • KenjiK

    Sorry, it looks “overstyled”. The F12 is a much better looking car.

  • Mr E Fella

    Ferrari and Lamborghini made a baby?
