The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been launched in India, priced at Rs. 5.2 crores.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been launched in India with a sticker price of Rs. 5.2 crores (ex-showroom) before options. The V12 powered GT replaces the F12 Berlinetta and is an evolution of the latter. The 812 Superfast rivals the Aston Martin DB11 and the Bentley Continental GT.
Since this is a Ferrari, let’s get straight to the heart of the matter, the powertrain. The Italian supercar comes powered by a naturally aspirated, 6.5-litre, V12 engine that makes 789 HP of power at 8500 RPM and 718 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM. This mammoth of an engine comes mated to a 7-speed F1 DCT automatic gearbox. Sprinting from 0-100 km/hr in just 2.9 seconds, the car does a top speed of 340 km/hr!
While the design of the 812 Superfast is in line with Ferrari’s current design philosophy, it can also be told that the 812 Superfast looks like an evolution of the F12 Berlinetta. The long swooping bonnet, wide grille and the slim headlamps give the front fascia some attitude. While the side profile looks similar to the F12 Berlinetta, the rear gets four rounded tail-lights, well complemented by the quad tailpipes and a large diffuser in between. Other features on offer are Side Slip Control (that helps the driver control the side-ways manoeuvres) and rear wheel steering.
The interior, though reminiscent of the F12 Berlinetta, is subtly different and designed on the lines of the crazy LaFerrari. The 812 Superfast is available in a range of colour options including red, blue and silver but we feel the car in the traditional Rosso Corso or the Rosso Scuderia will be the most popular with buyers in India.
