Italians brought to the track hardcore Ferrari 812June 18, 2020
Photographers spotted Ferrari drives the mysterious 812 Superfast prototype.
After the premiere of five new models last year, this year will be relatively quiet for Ferrari in terms of new models: later this year, as part of its plan to launch 15 new products by 2022, the Italian automaker will introduce two completely new models.
Last month, a video appeared on the Web demonstrating how Ferrari is testing a disguised prototype of a new hybrid supercar that will be a little “simpler” than the SF90 Stradale. Now Ferrari has come to test the new hardcore version of the 812 Superfast. Potentially, this may be the second mysterious model that Ferrari plans to introduce this year. The official name is not confirmed, but according to rumors, the new Ferrari 812 Superfast will revive the name “GTO”.
The video shows how a hardcore prototype is being tested on a Ferrari private test track in Italy. The mysterious prototype is covered in camouflage, through which you can see the huge rear diffuser, much larger than the standard 812 Superfast, as part of an aggressive body kit. The exhaust also has a lower sound frequency than a conventional model. It is noteworthy that the operator provided for comparison the previously shot material related to testing the original 812 Superfast.
The current Ferrari 812 Superfast engine features a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that generates 789 hp and 720 Nm of torque, and is combined with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This “filling” allows the 812 Superfast to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds.
According to preliminary information, the naturally aspirated V12 Ferrari 812 will receive an additional power increase of up to 850 hp, while the maximum torque will increase from 8500 to 9000 rpm. Most likely, the Ferrari 812 Superfast will be released in a limited number – in fact, it will be a sports car equivalent to the Ferrari F12 TDF, the circulation of which was limited to 799 copies.
