Ferrari 812 Superfast Kicks Off Its Tour de France In Cannes

Ferrari is in the midst of rolling out its new 812 Superfast in markets around the world. The latest is France, where the new front-engined V12 supercar made its national debut – in yellow, no less – at the glamorous Mediterranean coastal city of Cannes.

So far, most of what we’ve seen of the new twelve-cylinder Prancing Horse has been either in red or dark grey. It has popped up on our radar in yellow a couple of times before, but never looking quite as good as it does here.

The replacement for the F12, the new 812 follows in a long line stretching back to the 550 Maranello, through the 575M and the 599 GTB Fiorano. It packs a 6.5-liter V12, naturally aspirated, to deliver 789 horsepower to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, besting even the new Aventador S from arch-rival Lamborghini. 0-62 is quoted in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 211 mph, making it one of the fastest road-going Ferraris to date.

Those figures match the more hardcore F12 TdF, which made yellow its signature color, and which lapped the Fiorano test track in 1:21. We’ve yet to see a lap time for the new 812, but it’ll have to beat LaFerrari’s 1:19.7 to take the road-car lap record. Whenever you’re ready, Maranello.

    812 design is better than F12 but still not much appealing like Lambo V12s

    812 is 0,5 seconds slower around Fiorano, due to his tires.

    Sorry, this car would be amazing if it were anything other than a Ferrari. Ferrari’s are easily beautiful, curvy and sensual, where this is tacky and overwrought. This car’s design does nothing for me.
