Limited edition version of Ferrari 812 Superfast pictured for first time, still nameless
Ferrari has yet to decide on a name for the car, at least publicly. All they're saying now is that it's a special version of the 812 Superfast. Changes to the car, for its limited edition run, focus on honed-in 812 characteristics. The current 812 Superfast is billed as the "fastest and most powerful" Ferrari to date. This new version could be even more powerful.
The Italian supercar manufacturer says that the new car "encapsulates and epitomizes the company's 70-plus years of experience on the world's circuits". Ferraris, according to the company, are best known for their "performance, form, and function" and this new model will include "numerous uncompromising engineering solutions to guarantee peerless driving pleasure".
This new car will feature Ferrari's V12 engine, which produces 819 horsepower, and revs to 9,500 rpm, the highest of any Ferrari with an internal combustion engine. It has class-leading vehicle dynamics thanks to four-wheel steering and an ultra-connected drive experience. The seventh iteration of Ferrar's side slip control vehicle dynamics system debuts on the new model. There's new front air intakes, rear diffuser, and exhaust configuration all as a means of enhancing downforce.
High- and low-tech solutions play into the performance of the new car. Aerodynamicists formed the car to a shape that is unprecedented for a road car. The typical rear window has been changed out for a single-piece aluminum structure. Lightweighting has been done in various places including the door panels where a new design weighs less and gives the cockpit a sportier look.
In the new photos, Ferrari shows that the special series has a personality that differentiates its from the 812 Superfast. This was achieved by generating unique styling themes. A carbon fiber blade traverses the hood of the car and emphasizes the width of the car. The tail of the model has a unique look that gives the car the look of a fastback and includes a higher spoiler.
