Ferrari will unveil two new roadsters later this month and the first image of the 812 Superfast Spider has surfaced on social media.
Apparently taken at a private unveiling, the picture shows the car largely follows in the footsteps of the coupe. However, there are significantly changes aft of the A-pillar as the roadster has a revised greenhouse and what appears to be two large buttresses behind the seats.
Of course, the biggest change is the roof. It’s not entirely clear if the model has a removal roof panel or a retractable hard top, but the 812 Superfast Spider provides an open air experience that fans should love.

The First Spy Shoot Of The New Ferrari 812 GTS, More Info And Detail To Be Published Soon. 📸:@varryx_ #ferrari#scuderiaferrari#ferrarilebanon#scuderialebanon#forzaferrari#dream#passion#commendatore#enzo#enzoferrari#MEF#supercars#hypercars#megacars#rossoinfinito#drivingferrari#museiferrari#universoferrari#488pista#sf90stradale#f8tributo#812superfast#ferrariportofino#gtc4lusso#gtc4lussot#monzasp1#monzasp2#ferrari812gts
Like the coupe, the spider should have a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 789 hp (588 kW / 800 PS) and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque. It will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.
The coupe accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h). However, roadsters typically weigh more than their coupe counterparts and aren’t as aerodynamic. As a result, we wouldn’t be surprised if the 812 Superfast Spider is slightly slower to 62 mph (100 km/h) and has lower top speed.
Ferrari is skipping the Frankfurt Motor Show, but the car is expected to be unveiled shortly. It should be joined by an F8 Spider that features a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine with 710 hp (530 kW / 720 PS) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque. This should enable the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in approximately 2.9 seconds.
