The Ferrari 812 Superfast made its international debut last month, however today the Italian automaker pulled the wraps from the near-800 horsepower front-engine supercar at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, marking the first time the world’s media laid eyes on the F12 replacement.
The 812 Superfast is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 789 horsepower at a screaming 8,500 rpm and 530 lb-ft of torque from 7,000 RPM. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Top speed sits at 211 mph and the 0-62 mph dance is over in just 2.9 seconds.
In addition to an all-new 6.5-liter engine, the 812 Superfast features Ferrari’s first-ever electronic power steering system and its Side Slip Control drift-assist system. The 812 Superfast also employs the second generation of the automaker’s Virtual Short Wheelbase rear-wheel steering system, improving steering response and overall vehicle agility.
Ferrari brought two 812 Superfast’s to Geneva: a special celebratory ‘Rosso 70 Anni’ red example and a Grigio Caldo Opaco example. The vehicles will be on display at the show both this week and next before customers take delivery later this year.
