Ferrari Teases New Flagship Performance 812

Italian supercar maker Ferrari has released some teaser images of its soon-to-be-revealed new product. 

At this stage we don't even have an official name yet, but it's understood this is the hottest version of the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Ferrari released these images and some technical data to get us excited. 

The official reveal takes place in early May 2021, but what we do know is the vehicle features a special aerodynamics package that optimises airflow and promotes downforce. We also know that the standard Ferrari 812 Superfast's 6.5-litre V12 engine has been tuned to deliver even more power. The standard car produces 588 kW and 718 Nm, but Ferrari claims the new model will boast 610 kW.

This is now the most powerful combustion engine ever put into a road car by the Italian carmaker, but how did it get there? The rev limiter has been moved 9 500 rpm and there's a new valve timing mechanism as well as a new exhaust setup. Given the name, the Superfast boasted impressive performance, with 0-100 kph being dispatched in 2.9 seconds. Expect this hotter version to go way quicker. 

Ferrari also announced its new hotter 812 will feature 4-wheel steering as well as an update version of its Slide Slip Control vehicle dynamics system. The vehicle has also been on a diet and there's extensive use of carbon fibre, both inside and out. 

Set your calendar and reminders for the 5th of May 2021, where Ferrari will be live streaming the launch of its new high-performance vehicle.
