Most automakers these days are preoccupied with the industry’s mounting sustainability efforts, but that’s not to say that the era of high-volume, power-heavy engines has passed. Rather, if there’s anything to take away from Ferrari’s latest model, it’s that Maranello is determined to see internal combustion go out in a blaze of glory.
At this point, the Prancing Horse has yet to give the car an official name. However, we do know that it’s a limited-edition variant of the brand’s flagship grand tourer, the 812 Superfast. Under the hood, it hides a naturally-aspirated V12, a monster of a block that produces some 819hp and roars all the way to 9,500rpm. If you think those numbers sound impressive, you’d be right — it’s both the most powerful and also the highest-revving production engine Ferrari’s ever made. Elsewhere, you’ll find that the “standard” 812 has seen some pretty significant performance upgrades, with the bodywork completely redesigned for improved aerodynamic efficiency, the chassis fitted with independent steering at each wheel, and the interior lightened with large swaths of carbon fiber. In other words — it’ll be a bonafide track-slaying beast. More details are coming on May 5th, but you can visit the link below in the meantime.
