It was only a few weeks ago that Ferrari announced that it would be giving its internal combustion engine program one final hurrah with the release of a special edition version of the already extremely potent 812 Superfast. And while the Prancing Horse had already revealed the 6.5L V-12-engined supercar would squeeze out 819hp and rev to 9,500rpm — making it the highest-revving and most powerful production Ferrari ever conceived — the elite Italian automaker has now officially revealed what it’s christened the 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A.
Offered in coupe and Targa variants, the 812 Competizione cars were engineered with a major focus on shedding weight, and as such tip the scales at just 3,278lbs (dry). This, coupled with the output of their naturally aspirated twelve-bangers — a cool 830hp and 510ft-lbs of torque — makes for vehicles with an even more impressive power-to-weight ratio of 1.79kg per horsepower. The result is an Italian supercar that can do 0-60mph in under three seconds and has a top speed of well over 200mph — a feat made possible partially thanks to a slew of minor aero upgrades that were inspired by 2010s era Formula One car designs. These special edition models also boast the latest version of Ferrari’s four-wheel steering, a new exhaust configuration, and a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission that’s been recalibrated to allow for faster gear-changes.
