Ferrari 812 Superfast Looks Super Fun Going Sideways In Mugello

With everyone focusing on the recently launched 488 Pista, it’s easy to forget that Ferrari has an even more powerful horse in its stable: the 812 Superfast.

Okay, its name is a bit cheesy, but its specs are anything but. That’s because the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 puts out 800PS (789hp / 588kW) and 718Nm (530lb-ft) of torque that are channeled to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

From 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph), the Ferrari 812 Superfast is just as quick as the McLaren 720S, at 2.9 seconds, and it reaches the 200km/h (124mph) mark 7.9sec after setting off. Keep you right foot down for long enough, and the 1,630kg (3,594lbs) supercar will hit 340km/h (211mph).

With these specs, the Maranello-born machine is brave enough to challenge a lot of exotics in a straight line. However, the following video isn’t about a drag race, but rather some powersliding action.

Filmed on the Mugello Circuit, in Tuscany, Italy, the Ferrari 812 Superfast proved to be super-fun to drive, tackling some of the 14 turns of the 5.24km (3.26mi) long track very sideways.

The driver had a lot of fun putting the 812 through its paces, and it resulted in a short video that’s definitely worth watching.

  • George Taramas

    Nothing like a big naturally aspirated engine!
