Where the Ferrari F12 used to be the brand’s flagship product in the country, the 812 is, now, the flagship vehicle you can buy from a Ferrari dealership. As for the name, the 812 comes from the combination of the 800hp figure of the V12 engine in question here. Ferrari has coined both abovesaid terms together, therefore, leading to 812.
Since it’s available in just a single configuration, it is also touted as the Ferrari 812 Superfast. The V12 engine under the hood of this Ferrari produces a mind-numbing 800 horsepower, hence the name 812. As for the Superfast insignia, well, that’s Ferrari’s way of saying this is a Superfast machine!
While it is an entirely new model in Ferrari’s speak, 812 Superfast is based on the F12, and Ferrari officials also say that it is now the fastest and more powerful Ferrari to roll off the production line – other than the limited-run La Ferrari, that is.
But, if you’re one of those folks who were not able to get your hands on the extremely quick and desirable limited-run La Ferrari, the 812 Superfast is to be considered. And for those sceptical, the 812 Superfast is no slouch either.
Let me answer all your questions regarding the 812 right below.
In typical Ferrari fashion, the Ferrari 812 new model is a beautiful machine that just makes you lust for it. It’s sexy, addictive, and looks absolutely sensational in the ‘Rosso Corsa’ shade. Of course, being a Ferrari means that its something that will make you drool over, and the 812 does the job very well.
It’s dimensionally big too, as the 812 measures 4,657mm in length, 1,971mm in width, and 1,276mm in height. The colossal 20-inch wheels are separated by a respectable wheelbase of 2,720mm. Apart from that, the Superfast Ferrari tips the scale at 1,630kgs and it has a fuel tank capacity of 92-litres.
As already hinted above, the 812 Superfast is powered by a massive 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine, which is clearly a step up from the F12’s V12 engine. The engine sits inside the long bonnet and produces 789bhp (800hp) and 718Nm of torque. The power is sent to the rear wheel via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
To give you a glimpse of how quick it is, the 812 reaches 0-100km/h in just under 3s (2.9s to be precise) and the 0-200km/h in an absolutely crazy 7.9s.
In the case of fuel efficiency, do not expect the Ferrari to deliver any mind-numbing numbers. Of course, the petrol engine here is tuned to deliver performance rather than fuel efficiency. Even so, for those who’d like to know, the 812 is expected to deliver around 4-5km/l.
As is a norm with every Ferrari, the interiors of the 812, too, are quite satisfying. The quality of materials and seats is extremely good, leaving no space for any criticism. Moreover, the cabin layout is very minimalistic and driver-focussed.
The steering wheel is a flat-bottom unit, and it houses controls for virtually everything from turn indicators to drive modes. The instrument cluster is also a typical Ferrari affair, replete with an analogue rev counter flanked with two digital displays.
The 812, as of mid-2020, comes in thirteen shades, namely, Giallo Modena,Rosso Corsa,Grigio Ferro,Grigio Ingrid,Avorio,Grigio Alloy,ArgentoNurburgring,Nero Daytona,Blu Abu Dhabi,Verde British,Blu Scozia,Azzurro California, and Rosso Mugello.
