Hitting Top Speed In A Ferrari 812 Superfast Is A Walk In The Park

Going from naught to over 300 km/h (186 mph) in just a little under 20 seconds is quite a feat. One of the supercars capable of pulling this stunt is the Ferrari 812 Superfast.

Its name may be a little tacky, but it does have the credentials to back it up: a powerful V12 engine at the front and rear-wheel drive, a successful recipe if ever we saw one.

The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 unit pumps out 800 PS (789 hp / 588 kW) and 718 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque at 7,000 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,525 kg (3,362 lbs), the 812 Superfast hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, and with their right foot down, drivers will eventually see the speedometer top out at 340 km/h (211 mph).

The fact that it’s a Grand Tourer with impressive performance makes cruising down the highway an absolute pleasure. To put it this way, if you had a soft spot for its predecessor, the F12 Berlinetta, then you’re going to love the 812, even if was recently whipped by a McLaren 720S.

Anyhow, the example in the following video didn’t manage to hit top speed, but it went all the way up to a very impressive 324 km/h (201 mph). Mind you, it did it without breaking a sweat, which makes the entire experience even more incredible – and we’re pretty sure that, if the driver didn’t lift his right foot, he’d have easily hit the 812’s v-max.
