812 IS SUPERFAST

Torque (Singapore) - - NEWS -

The lat­est Pranc­ing Horse is pow­ered by a nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 6496cc V12 with 800bhp, 718Nm and a red­line of 8900rpm.

Fer­rari’s F1 7-speed dual-clutch trans­mis­sion works in con­cert with cut­tingedge mecha­tron­ics (in­clud­ing the mar­que’s first ap­pli­ca­tion of elec­tric power steer­ing) and lead­ing-edge aero­dy­nam­ics to make the 812 Superfast su­per-sh­iok to drive.

The cabin is an­other work of au­to­mo­tive art from the Ital­ian ar­ti­sans in Maranello, with a “strong and smooth en­gine sound in­side in all driv­ing con­di­tions”. A high-end au­dio sys­tem with 12 speak­ers and a 1280-watt am­pli­fier pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive to the up­lift­ing or­ches­tral music played by the V12 mo­tor. The cock­pit is also equipped with a teleme­try sys­tem de­rived from the one in the LaFer­rari hy­brid hy­per­car.

Even more pow­er­ful than the F12berlinetta, the 812 Superfast is the fastest Fer­rari road car in reg­u­lar pro­duc­tion – zero to 100km/h in 2.9 sec­onds, 100km/h to 200km/h in an­other 5 sec­onds, and a max­i­mum ve­loc­ity of 340km/h.
