    DRIVEN: Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Summary

    These days, twelve-cylinder GT cars are few and far between. And I have never expected a GT car this at home on the track. That said, this is exactly what you would expect from Ferrari.

    The drivetrain is the cherry on the proverbial 812 Superfast cake for me. The car does so many things right, but to experience the ferocity and intensity of this V12 is something truly special. The fact that there is a boot and neat leather luggage straps behind the seats on the parcel shelf even adds a measure of versatility.

    The 812 possesses the sort of performance that will embarrass supercars and it is more involving to drive than some of them, too. Ferrari has been building front-engined (front/mid-engined, in this case) cars for more than five decades and the company has yet again created a vehicle that delivers on every level.

    FERRARI 812 SUPERFAST COMING TO SA! HERE’S HOW MANY

    Back in February, Ferrari took the wraps off the new 812 Superfast, complete with a more powerful, 6,5-litre version of the brand’s famous V12 engine. And, earlier this month, CAR’s very own Wilhelm Lutjeharms drove the newcomer in Italy.

    Now, we can confirm that the Ferrari 812 Superfast is headed for South Africa, with the local launch scheduled for the first quarter of 2018.

    How many units have been set aside for SA customers? Well, just 20 examples will make their way to our shores, at an unconfirmed price.

    The latest version of Ferrari’s 12-cylinder as featured in the new flagship GT makes a whopping 588 kW at 8 500 r/min and 718 N.m at 7 000 r/min, with 80% of peak torque available at 3 500 r/min. Top speed is quoted as being in excess of 340 km/h, while the 0-100 km/h sprint takes a claimed 2,9 seconds.

    The front-engined 812 Superfast’s dual-clutch transmission has specific gear ratios, which combined with shorter up- and down-shifting times between gears, sharpen throttle response further still, according to Ferrari.

    Interestingly, the 812 Superfast is the first Ferrari to sport electric power steering. It also features the latest 5,0 version of Ferrari’s Side Slip Control system.

    15 intriguing facts we learnt on our Ferrari HQ visit

    During a recent trip to Maranello in Italy to drive the new Ferrari 812 Superfast, we had the opportunity to visit the factory, as well as the two museums and the company’s Classiche department. We even ate in the canteen.

    Here are some interesting facts we learned about this company during the visit…

    1. Enzo’s office was positioned next to the main gate/entrance to the factory, so that he could monitor every car that came and went.

    2. Following WWII, the buildings were restored (in 1947).

    3. Ferrari has its own wind-tunnel on site, which was finished in 1997. It is used for the development of Formula 1 cars only.

    4. In total, approximately 3 000 people (from about 30 different countries) are employed in Maranello by Ferrari.

    5. The factory has its own aluminium foundry where the engine blocks are moulded.

    6. Each V12 engine is built by one engine builder, and is on a line separate to that of the V8s and V6 Maserati engines. Each V8 and V6 engine, meanwhile, is worked on by more than one employee.

    7. V8-engined cars and V12-engined cars have their own assembly lines, and so did the LaFerrari.

    8. Each Ferrari engine is tested for 30 minutes when it is finished.

    9. Each Ferrari, before it leaves the factory, is put through a 50 km test drive.

    10. A new building is currently being built to house the company’s designers.

    11. Total production for 2017 will be 8 400 units, up from 2016’s 8 014 cars. However, demand still outstrips supply.

    12. The on-site Ferrari canteen supplies around 2 500 meals a day.

    13. The Classiche department is on also on site, close to the main gate, and was officially opened in 2006.

    14. The “main gate” is still used, although most traffic now enters via other, larger entrances.

    15. One engineer pointed to the fact that the replacement for the 812 might be all-wheel drive, owing to the level of power these cars are now making. Whether it will be full-time or switchable four-wheel drive remains to be seen…
