These days Ferrari is conducting the press launch of its new V12 GT, the 812 Superfast, and to say that those who have sampled it so far have walked away gob smacked would be an understatement.
Improving on a supercar of the caliber of the F12berlinetta must have been quite a task, but Maranello’s engineers did just that with the 812. It’s not just power that has now climbed to 800 HP, or performance from the updated 6.5-liter V12 (how does 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds sound to you?) – the 812 Superfast bests its predecessor in almost everything.
Ferrari has fitted an electric power steering for the first time, and that’s supposed to work with the Slide Slip Control and the rest of the electronics to make the car even nimbler and, at the same time, safer.
You might have already seen most of the above in the first couple of reviews that came out, but this one is different because the man behind the wheel has owned an F12 for two years and has covered no less than 17,000 miles in it. He is therefore well qualified to provide us with the owner’s perspective after a drive in the twisty roads above Maranello.
So, what does he think of the latest, and (LaFerrari excluded) greatest to come out of Ferrari? Scroll down and find out in the video right after the jump.
