Ferrari Could Be Working On A Hardcore 812 Superfast And Possibly Two Roadsters

Ferrari is planning to unveil a new model on September 17th and it appears the car could just be the tip of the iceberg.

Citing Ferrari Chat, The Drive is reporting that Ferrari could be working on a handful of different models that are based on the 812 Superfast. These rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, but some of the models sound extremely likely and one of the cars is rumored to be the same vehicle that will be unveiled later this month at a private event.

Nothing is official, but previous reports have suggested the “icon” that Ferrari recently teased is the 812 Monza. There are conflicting reports about the car’s purpose, but one user claims it will be a speedster which will have its production capped at 200 units. Another user claims the car will pay tribute of the 250 Testa Rossa and have a unique exterior with so-called “pontoon” fenders. Yet another, claims the car will be a hardcore model.  The latter seems the most likely as the car draws its name from the Autodromo Nazionale Monza which has hosted the Italian Grand Prix on numerous occasions.

If the 812 Monza doesn’t turn out to be a roadster, fans might not need to worry as there are also rumors about 812 Aperta with a removable targa top as well as roofless speedster with a short windscreen. It’s possible that some of the users could be talking about car, but that’s far from certain at this point. That being said, it’s likely Ferrari will eventually introduce some sort of roadster as the previous F12berlinetta spawned the F60America and F12 TRS.

Regardless of what happens, the 812 Superfast has a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 789 hp (588 kW / 800 PS) and 529 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the coupe to rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).

    It’s about time for a hardcore 812, a topless variant would be something new (and limited)

  • Elmediterraneo

    A Roadster but still a special limited production or one-off.
    Ferrari with their stupid politics can’t do a proper regular 12 cylinder convertible…

  • Well it’s all valid reasons but my money is in convertible 812, the car is still too new for faster version.

  • Six_Tymes

    how can they make it more “hard core”?

    • Vassilis

      Maybe lighter with more aero and a little more power. Similar to what the tdf was to the F12.
