Nothing Gives You An Adrenaline Rush Like A Ferrari 812 Superfast On Full Chat

The best V12 engine in the world comes with a free Ferrari 812 Superfast – and that’s a fact.

Ferrari has managed to improve what already was considered pretty much perfect. We’re referring of course to the manic naturally aspirated V12 that powers the 812 Superfast compared to its predecessor in the F12berlinetta.

This modern wonder produces 800PS (789hp) at a screaming 8,500rpm with the kind help of an extremely high-pressure fuel injection system, and it won’t stop revving until it hits 8,900rpm. This is not an engine, it’s 6.5 liters of madness.

Ferrari has also further improved the dual-clutch automatic transmission that now features shorter gearing and even faster gear changes, particularly when downshifting.

The 0-62mph (100km/) sprint is dispatched in a mere 2.9 seconds, but keep your right foot to the floor and you’ll hit 124mph (200km/h) in a breathtaking 7.9 seconds. And remember, this is supposed to be the big two-seater GT car in the brand’s range.

Being a modern Ferrari, the 812 Superfast also employs a long list of chassis trickery, including rear-wheel steering for improved agility and stability.

Other systems include the Side Slip Control function that lets you behave like a schoolboy but always with a safety net, and an updated aero agenda that keeps the car glued to the road without the use of giant spoilers.

Carfection had a quick go in the Ferrari 812 Superfast, enjoying its naturally aspirated madness and the multi-talented chassis that comes with it.

    Love the engine, but I do think it should be wrapped in a prettier package.

  • Never really fan of 812 looks, I don’t find it sporty nor elegant. Just plain quirky..
