Italian sports car marque, Ferrari has unveiled its all-new Ferrari 812 Superfast, ahead of the car’s actual global premiere at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
Ferrari will take the wraps off the car on March 7 at the onset of the motor show and will physically reveal the car to the world. The car is going to replace the current F12 Berlinetta from the company.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast gets evolutionary styling over the Berlinetta. The car has been designed at the Ferrari Design Centre, situated in Maranello, Italy. The design is still a lot reminiscent of the F12 Berlinetta, however, still the Ferrari 812 gets a lot of new styling cues. For starters, the car has grown in its overall proportions.
Then, there’s the presence of a new longer bonnet, an aggressively sloping roof and a raised rear end, sporting the tail lamps at a slight more height than the outgoing car. The tail lamps are now four in number and tend to fill the rear canvas on the boot lid quite well. The rear bumper also gets diffuser, as well as sees the presence of a quad exhaust setup.
At the front, the Ferrari 812 Superfast features full LED headlamps and a much wider air dam, which also does the duty of fulfilling the car’s heat dissipation need for such a humongous power output.
On the inside, the car gets a new steering wheel, which houses all the Ferrari’s manettino switches to control different driving modes. The dashboard and other bits have been designed with renowned Ferrari fashion, reeking of quality and finesse.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast will come powered by a 6.5-litre V12 petrol motor, which will churn out 789 BHP of power at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm. Ferrari has improved the driveability of the 812 by bringing around 80 per cent of the torque lower down the rev range, which would now be available from as low as 3,500 rpm.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast is capable of attaining a 0-100kmph time of 2.9 seconds, while having a top speed of 340 kmph.
