Default Last of the Ferrari n/a cars? The 812 Superfast

789bhp Ferrari 812 Superfast revealed as most powerful series model yet | Autocar

Quote:
This is the evolution to the fantastic F12 and F12 Tour de France, and what an evolution! 6.5-liter normally aspirated V12 and 789 bhp at 8,500 rpm! This car marks the end of an era: normally aspirated - non hybrid - Ferraris

Article from Autocar UK: 789bhp Ferrari 812 Superfast revealed as most powerful series model yet | Autocar

The Ferrari 812 Superfast has been revealed as the most powerful series production model to leave Maranello in the company’s 70-year history.

The two-door model is essentially a significantly upgraded version of the F12 Berlinetta but it uses a larger, naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine and introduces new chassis technology to the range.

The car’s unit is 234cc larger than that of the F12 and it produces 789bhp at 8500rpm and 530lb ft of torque at 7000rpm. This trumps even the hardcore F12tdf, which offered a maximum of 770bhp and 520lb ft of torque.

It is officially the most potent front-mounted engine fitted to a production car and is expected to be the marque’s final pure V12 engine, with hybrid assistance or turbocharged expected in its predecessor.

Paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and driving the rear wheels, the powertrain is capable of accelerating the 812 Superfast from 0-62mph in 2.9sec and onto a top speed of more than 211mph. These figures are identical to the F12tdf, despite the 812 Superfast’s 110kg heavier dry weight of 1525kg.

Another significant change in the 812 Superfast is the addition of electric power steering. It is the first Ferrari to use such a system, and has been developed to work with Ferrari’s Slide Slip Control technology, which has proven to enhance agility in other models such as the 488 GTB.

Also new is the second generation of Virtual Short Wheelbase. An evolution of the first-gen system used on the F12tdf, it sharpens the car’s handling to give quicker steering response times.

The 812 Superfast’s exterior design is more aggressive than the F12, with new LED lights, a new grille and more prominent aerodynamic features the most noticeable changes. Active aerodynamic flaps are fitted at front to boost downforce or reduce drag, depending on the scenario. Inside, the car gets a more angular dash with an updated instrument cluster display.


The car will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show, when it will also go on sale.

Wasn't the F12 the car that owners complained about because it had "too much" power? So Ferrari took their feedback and decided to make an even more powerful tdf. Now this?

I love Ferraris. Don't get me wrong. But I hate the direction they've gone in with the hatchy rear and super long front.
