The first and most difficult challenge Ferrari always faces when it decides to develop a new model is to
push the boundaries of its own achievements yet again. This challenge is made all the tougher when the
task at hand involves designing a new 12-cylinder engine, the power unit that hailed the start of the
glorious Prancing Horse story 70 years ago in 1947.
Max power output of 800 cv at 8,500 RPM.
On this occasion, intensive research and development focused on exploiting Ferrari’s wealth of track-
derived engineering know-how has produced the 812 Superfast, designed to offer its drivers both
benchmark performance across the board and the most riveting and rewarding driving experience possible.
With its output boosted to 800 cv, 60 more than the F12berlinetta, the 812 Superfast is the most powerful
and fastest road-going Ferrari ever built (with the exception, of course, of the rear-engined special
limited-series 12-cylinders). The 812 Superfast thus ushers in a new era in Ferrari 12-cylinder history,
and, in doing so, builds on the invaluable legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf.
Perfect Weight Balance.
To make full use of that huge power and to guarantee perfect weight distribution, the car exploits a
highly evolved transaxle architecture that couples a front-mounted engine with a rear-mounted
transmission. It is also the first Ferrari equipped with EPS (Electric Power Steering).
