A camouflaged Ferrari 812 prototype spotted on tests

Photos of two camouflaged supercar prototypes from Ferrari have been shared online. One of them is an updated version of the 812. Rumor has it that the model will be able to develop more power from its monstrous V12 engine.

From 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 340 km / h, the Ferrari 812 is already an ultra-fast car. But it looks like Italian engineers want to extract even more power from its naturally aspirated V12 engine. Apparently, the Italian automaker is not only able to keep the 6.5-liter V12 engine alive in an increasingly tight automotive world, but is also finding other ways to increase the power output of this monstrous engine.

Not one, but two Ferrari 812 prototypes have been spotted on the streets of Italy without much disguise.

The prototype with a license plate ending in “AT01” used some kind of duct tape to partially hide the yellow cables and secure them to the body. “Partially” because you can see them in the lower right corner of the passenger door, where the cables likely go into the engine compartment.

This is a sign that Ferrari engineers have been keeping a close eye on the readings of the engine, which already develops an impressive 789 horsepower (718 Nm) without forced induction. It is not known how many horses the new Ferrari will receive, but we expect the final horsepower to exceed 800bhp to make the car worthy of the GTO designation.

In addition to the increase in power, a significant weight loss and a more developed, in terms of aerodynamics, body kit are also possible. The novelty is expected to debut in the coming months as Ferrari has pledged to introduce two new models before the end of the year. As for the other car that was spotted in testing, it is most likely a SF90 Stradale roadster.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a test prototype of the Ferrari Purosangue crossover was seen on tests. Western journalists published photos of the tests of the Italian crossover Ferrari Purosangue. The novelty used the body of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso station wagon.
