Check Out Ferrari’s Fastest And Most Powerful Car Ever Made


Soon at the 87th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show, Ferrari will hold the world premiere of its new 12-cylinder berlinetta, the Ferrari 812 Superfast. The new addition to the prancing horse family will be the most powerful and fastest Ferrari in the marque’s history. This new car not only introduces a plethora of innovative features but is also particularly significant as the V12 series marked the official start of the glorious Prancing Horse story in 1947, 70 years ago this year.

The 812 Superfast ushers in a new era in Ferrari’s 12-cylinder history, building on the invaluable legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf. It is aimed at those of us who demand nothing short of the most powerful and exclusive Ferrari in the range. From the looks of things, it will be an uncompromising sports car that will deliver exhilarating driving both on road and track, while still being comfortable enough to allow its occupants to enjoy it as an all-round experience.

Powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800 cv, the 812 Superfast is the new benchmark in the mid-front-engined sports car segment, achieving maximum power output at 8,500 rpm, which translates to a specific power output of 123 cv/l. These are figures that no other front-engined production car has ever even come near to delivering. 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 @ 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.

The 812 Superfast is equipped with leading-edge control systems and components, resulting in unparalleled handling and roadholding. It’s the first Ferrari to sport EPS (Electric Power Steering) which, in accordance with Ferrari’s uncompromising engineering approach, is used to fully exploit the potential of the car’s performance and, through the complete integration with all the electronic vehicle dynamics controls – including the latest 5.0 version of Ferrari’s patented Side Slip Control (SSC) - make its powerful performance easier to handle and even more thrilling to exploit.


As with all Ferraris, style and aerodynamic function are seamlessly integrated to produce innovative solutions and forms. The car is being launched in a special new color, Rosso Settanta, which marks the company’s 70th anniversary. The interior of the 812 Superfast has been revisited in line with the more extreme exterior whilst maintaining unaltered the exceptional on-board comfort and space that Ferrari’s front-engined V12 berlinettas have always offered. The cabin has been given a sportier, more radical look with the main elements seeming to float, creating an effect of both thoroughbred racing eagerness and lean elegance. The horizontal dash loops stylishly around the central air vents for a sophisticated, sculptural look.
