The 812 superfast car from Ferrari- 'A SPEED BEAST'

To luxury Italian car makers, speed is of paramount importance and that has been proven true by the Ferrari 812 Superfast automobile.

You might think that all the luscious curves given to the Ferrari is for style and just looks but here is a shocker for you, the design is part of the aerodynamic sauce that propels this supercar to its superfast name that harkens back to the namesake 1964 500 Superfast and the lore of the 1969 365 GTB4 Daytona. But there's no denying that those muscular haunches are menacing, even at a standstill under the staid convention center lights.

You might think am bluffing but trust me, am not, here's evidence-- The 812 Superfast is powered by a monster 6.5 liter V12 engine that cranks out 789 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque, now that's deep. The Engineers at Ferrari fine tuned the intake and combustion system to maximize the amount of air flow into the engine leading to improved overall efficiency and a set record of 588 kw at 8,500 rpm. That oomph propels the 812 Superfast from 0 to 62 miles per hour in a split of 2.9-second flash. And here's something new, the Ferrari 812 is the first of its kind made with an electric power steering.

The interior of the Ferrari 812 is ample in comparison to the Ferrari 488 GTB and has plenty of legroom for driver and passenger. From a driver's point of view, the slope of the glass pane rear window made the car feel more spacious. Even though the 812 Superfast might not be equipped with the 949 horsepower of poison found on the coachbuilt $1.4 million La Ferrari, Ferrari calls the 812 Superfast the extreme version of the $320,000 F12 Berlinetta, and what is more, it is still more car than any Ferrari enthusiast needs for some bad ass lap at the track or a delirious ride along the Amalfi Coast.
Makers of fast and furious might consider showing off the 812 in one of their series, I can bet it'll fit it just perfect.
