The Ferrari 812 Superfast made its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The successor to the F12berlinetta, the new 812 Superfast—marketed by Maranello as “the fastest and most powerful Ferrari yet”—filled the role as Ferrari’s two-seat, front-engine V-12, rear-wheel-drive grand tourer flagship. It more than lived up to its evocative name: Upon release, some commentators in the automotive media aptly, and without irony, deemed it “too fast” for roadgoing enjoyment.
The model is powered by a larger 6.5-liter V-12, replacing the outgoing 6.3-liter found in the F12. The new engine design puts out an astonishing 785 horsepower and 530 ft-lb of torque, which, according to Ferrari, at the time of its release was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever produced. The 812 Superfast achieves 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 211 mph. To maintain ideal weight distribution the gearbox is mounted at the rear, giving the car a 47:53 front:rear split. The seven-speed dual-clutch “F1” automated manual transaxle features Slide Slip Control 5 and E-Diff3. The new gearbox control reduces shift times in both upshifts and downshifts. Handling is improved care to the rear-wheel steering system from the F12tdf. Additionally, the 812 Superfast is the first Ferrari equipped with Electronic Power Steering (EPS). With the increase in power, faster shifting, and improved handing comes the need for enhanced braking which is provided by Brembo’s Extreme Design carbon-ceramic discs, borrowed from the LaFerrari.
The Rosso Corsa 812 Superfast offered here was completed at Maranello in November 2017, and delivered new in January 2018 to Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano, Texas. Acquired by the consignor in June 2018, the car’s interior is neatly trimmed in Nero leather with Rosso and carbon fiber accents throughout.
Carefully enjoyed since acquisition, invoices on file illustrate regular servicing at its delivery dealer. In February 2019, the car was furnished with a complete paint correction and professional ceramic coating regimen. Within the past 20 miles, it was treated to a brake fluid flush and annual service by Boardwalk Ferrari performed in December of 2020. Now showing fewer than 575 miles at time of cataloguing, this 812 Superfast is accompanied by service invoices, car cover, manuals, battery charger, and a spare key.
With its astonishing power, breathtaking performance, and stunning design, the 812 Superfast is the pinnacle of a long line of Ferrari grand tourers and a must-have for any diehard tifoso.
