A limited edition Ferrari 812 Superfast has been revealed with a reworked engine to bring out more potential in terms of performance. Information on this new limited model is not conclusive so the specs we have right now are limited to what the Italian manufacturer has revealed.
For starters, the limited edition Ferrari 812 Superfast uses the F140 GA naturally aspirated 6,5-litre V12 but instead of delivering 588 kW, it’s been cranked up to 610 kW. Adding to this drama is its rev limit which has been increased to 9 500 r/min.
This new model is claimed to be the ultimate expression of Ferrari’s concept of an extreme front-engined berlinetta by honing the characteristics of the critically-acclaimed 812 Superfast to a level never seen before. The new model is aimed at Ferrari’s most passionate collectors and connoisseurs and features numerous uncompromising engineering solutions to guarantee peerless driving pleasure.
Together with the increase in power, this limited edition Ferrari 812 Superfast adopts independent steering on all four wheels to extend agility and precision through the corners. Reducing mass, the car also adopts an extensive use of carbon fibre throughout the construction. All-new on this special model is a version 7,0 of Ferrari’s Side Slip Control vehicle dynamics system.
As for design, although it looks quite similar, there are some distinctive differences between this and a standard 812 Superfast. The rear glass screen has been replaced with a single-piece aluminium structure with vortex generators to improve the car’s aerodynamic efficiency.
With the carbon fibre blade that makes its way over the bonnet, a shorter appearance is granted and helps emphasise the width of the car. The tail now has a more powerful, fastback look to make it appear more compact and competition-like despite it sharing the 812 Superfast’s silhouette, proportions and formal balance. Even the rear spoiler now looks more imposing. It is higher but the specific design treatment used also makes the tail look very wide, almost horizontal.
Within the cabin, the special 812 Superfast retains the main dash, door panel interfaces and volumes, including the signature diapason motif. Along with other elements of the interior, the door panel has been redesigned to reduce weight and, combined with the introduction of the H-gate theme on the tunnel which lends the cockpit a sportier, more modern edge that reflects the car’s racing spirit.
