Watch: 7 Reasons Why the Ferrari 812 Superfast Earns Its Name

Superfast, indeed

Kelly Pleskot
Jul 27, 2018

We can't think of many cars that are as aptly named as the Ferrari 812 Superfast. It's among the top five quickest rear-wheel-drive cars we've ever tested here at Motor Trend, and it's the quickest front-engine, rear-drive car hands down.

This impressive performance is the work of a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 that makes 780 hp and 530 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed through a smooth-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 812 Superfast is the successor to the F12Berlinetta, which made 731 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque in standard form or 770 hp and 520 lb-ft in a track-focused variant.

In our First Test of the 812 Superfast, we wrote, "Once you've had a taste, legal limits will never do. All perception of speed is perverted, such that the car won't feel fast until you've left the double digits well behind."

Check out the video above to learn just how quick this car is.
