Ferrari is reportedly going to reveal an 812 Superfast Spider at the start of September.
At least that’s what members of the Ferrari Chat forum claim – on our part, we have no info whatsoever, thus we can neither confirm nor refute that report.
Word that Ferrari is working on a droptop 812 Superfast may come as quite a surprise to some, considering the F12 was never sold as a Spider and the 599 before it was only offered in extremely-limited numbers in droptop form as the SA Aperta.
A number of users from Ferrari Chat claim to have received VIP invitations from the Italian car manufacturer inviting them to attend exclusive unveilings of the 812 Superfast Spider. Some write that their invitations are for an event held on September 2, while others cite the 5th of 7th of September, meaning the company is likely spreading out the car’s presentation for different regions.
Unlike the SA Aperta, the 812 Superfast Spider will be a normal production model. That being said, it will only be built for a limited time but at this early stage, it remains to be seen how long the car’s production run will last.
Ferrari has allegedly opted to use a folding hardtop mechanism very similar to the one on the 488 Spider. Forum members also state that it will feature the same engine as the 812 Superfast coupe, namely a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 pumping out an extraordinary 789 HP. All of that power will be sent to the rear wheels, and with the top down, it is bound to offer customers one of the best-sounding experiences you can get on four wheels.
