Ferrari will showcase 812 Superfast, its fastest production supercar at the Geneva International Motor Show. By ‘fastest’, Ferrari means 0 to 100 kmph in 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 340kmph.
The first pictures of the car show this 812 Superfast tantalising like a Ferrari always is. It replaces the Italian sports-carmaker’s F12 model, but inherits its insane power.
The mid-front-engined sports car is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 motor that generates 800PS top power @8,500rpm and 718Nm of maximum torque @7,000rpm. The Superfast will run 100km in 14.9 litres of fuel.
The silhouette of 812 reminds of the outgoing F12 – fastback sleekness, muscular wheel-arches and a high tail. The full LED headlamps are neatly wrapped with the bonnet, into which the air-intakes are carved.
812 is Ferrari’s first car to come equipped with an Electric Power Steering (EPS). It also features the 5.0 version of Ferrari’s patented Side Slip Control technology that keeps the vehicle controlled during high-speed performance.
The latest Ferrari will be first seen in metal at the Geneva International Motor Show from March 9 to 19.
In India, Ferrari offers six models with a wide range of customisation options, from its two dealerships in Mumbai and Delhi.
