The Ferrari 812 Superfast follows the suit of its successor – the mighty Ferrari F12berlinetta – by combining aerodynamic efficiency with breathtaking looks that the iconic Italian brand is known for. The science and math of its aerodynamics aside, we’d say that the body of the Ferrari 812 Superfast is nothing short of properly dramatic.
Ignacio Albera is the mastermind who came up with the design of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, and this prototype was a vital part of all the wind tunnel testing that went into engineering the final product, which is capable of reaching top speeds of over 211 miles per hour. And now with all of the testing completed, this piece of Ferrari history is heading to auction.
Despite not having a powertrain or even a steering wheel, the Ferrari 812 Superfast prototype is estimated to be worth $330,000 to $380,000 USD. In other words, a bit more than an actual, drivable 812. Seems like a bit much for a static object, but there’s no doubt that this wind tunnel model is as much of an artistic sculpture as it is a piece of equipment.
The prototype is set to cross the block at RM Sotheby’s Leggenda E Passione on September 9th, during its largest Ferrari auction ever. The only road commissioned Ferrari Daytona Alloy and the final LaFerrari Aperta will also be sold at the event.
