The 812 Superfast is the latest Ferrari V12 engine from the prestigious supercar company based in Maranello, Italia. The vehicle’s V12 engine has a 6.5-litre capacity, producing 789 horsepower and a torque of 717 Nm.
This power is transmitted to the rear wheels of the vehicle through the 7-level dual clutch gearbox, so the 812 Superfast is capable of accelerating 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of more than 340 km/h.
Those are the theoretical parameters that the Italian supercar company publishes, what is the reality, whether “super horses” are that fast. To find out the truth, Auto Bild Sportscars brought a Superfast 812 to the test track of the Monza racecourse in Italy to verify.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast is a V12 supercar first launched by Ferrari at the 2017 Geneva Motorshow to replace its predecessor, the F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari has made several engine as well as appearance upgrades to the 812 Superfast.
The new design of the Ferrari V12 line possesses pit lines, embossed tendons that create a healthier, sportier feel than the “soft” F12 Berlinetta.
Currently 812 Superfasts are still produced and sold by Ferrari at starting prices from
USD 358,102 in the US market. In the future, Ferrari will replace the natural gas V12 series with hybrid supercar products. However, the V12 engine will most likely be used in tandem with the hybrid system instead of using a smaller engine variant.
However, this supercar model using natural gas engine will soon be killed in the near future. According to Ferrari Australia spokesman, Ferrari will not take any more orders for the two models Ferrari 812 Superfast and Ferrari 812 GTS:
The production line of this series will continue until all orders are completed and the successor model is given way. Ferrari’s biggest reason to kill 812 soon could come from the fact that emissions are being strictly limited to many major markets around the world.
This caused the supercar company from Italy to electrify or at least install a booster unit for the V12 engine to legalize the line.
