Ferrari Unveils 812 Superfast Ahead Of Geneva Motor Show

In the 70 years since Ferrari was founded, the Italian brand has produced some pretty spectacular cars.

All of these, apart from being Ferraris, have one thing in common – they all run V12s.

And with everyone saying the V12 is close to being phased out of motoring altogether, it’s really nice to see Ferrari keeping the spirit alive.

Because to replace the F12 Berlinetta, Fezza is bringing out the 812 Superfast – an 800bhp brute wrapped in a svelte shell.

The 6.5-litre V12 under the bonnet also helps create 718Nm of torque at 7,000rpm, which is pretty mental, and we’re assuming it’ll sound incredible thanks to the four exhaust pipes under the beautifully sculpted back end.

But we think Ferrari has forgotten something in its press release, because it has called the 812 (and we quote):

The most powerful and fastest Ferrari in the marque’s history.

Now, we don’t know if they’re a forgetful bunch at Maranello, but didn’t they create this only a couple of years ago?

The top speed of LaFerrari is 217mph. The 812? 211mph.

Anyway, the 812’s first public appearance will be at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Oh, and we love the name. Superfast just makes it even cooler!
