The new amazing Ferrari 812 Superfast review

Ferrari are an incredibly innovative company that constantly make amazing pieces of machinery. Their new amazing Ferrari 812 Superfast is the most powerful and fastest Ferrari in their history. The 812 Superfast builds upon the legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf. This sports car that will deliver something not yet known in driving, both on road and track – but still be comfortable enough to allow its you to enjoy an all-round experience. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the 812 Superfast redefines the design of supercars with its sporty yet aggressive contours and styling. Full-LED headlights integrated into the design of the sculpted air intakes on the bonnet emphasise that aggressiveness. The contours on the front really add emphasis on the bonnet and the new vents along the headlights add another element that make this car look like it really means business. The smooth grille on the front with the prancing horse and vents look very nice indeed.

At the rear, four round tail-lights inspired by Ferrari tradition emphasise a design crafted around horizontal lines and give the 812 a broad, imposing stance, visually lowering both spoiler and cabin. As with all Ferraris, style and aerodynamic function are seamlessly integrated to produce innovative solutions. Two examples are the multi-functional frontal section, which incorporates a cluster of aerodynamic solutions including active flaps at the front of the underbody, and the rear flank which features an unprecedented aerodynamic by-pass to increase downforce. A special new colour has been launched to mark the Ferraris’ 70th anniversary – Rosso Settanta.

Engine

The 812 Superfast is powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that achieves a maximum power output at 8,500 rpm. The engine’s power is underscored by a full, rich exhaust sound that exploits the acoustic clout delivered by its increased displacement. Maximum torque is 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm, a significant 80% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm, improving both driveability and pick-up even at low revs. These performance levels were achieved in part by adopting a 350 bar direct injection system for the very first time on a high-performance engine and pairing it with variable geometry intake tracts conceptually derived from those of naturally-aspirated F1 engines. It can do 0 – 100 km/h in 2.9 sec with a maximum speed  greater than 340 Km/h. The 812 Superfast’s dual-clutch transmission has specific gear ratios which, combined with shorter up and down-shifting times between gears, sharpen throttle response still further.

The 812 Superfast is equipped with leading-edge control systems and components, resulting in handling and road holding like never seen before. It’s the first Ferrari to sport EPS (Electric Power Steering) which is used to fully exploit the potential of the car’s performance and make its powerful performance easier to handle and exploit. The vehicle controls also has the Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 system (PCV) which features an evolution of the software that improves the nimbleness of the handling and reduces the vehicle response times.

The interior is beautiful, simple and very stylish. It has been revisited in line with the more extreme exterior whilst maintaining unaltered the exceptional on-board comfort and space. The cabin has been given a sportier, more thorough look with the main elements seeming to float, creating an effect of lean elegance. The horizontal dash carries stylishly around the central air vents for a sculptural look. New, more sporty and ergonomic seats feature alongside the new HMI, including new steering wheel and instrument clusters and the latest infotainment and air-conditioning units.
