Ferrari 812 Superfast 2018
Visualizing yourself driving a Ferrari is always a pleasant way to waste a few ‘when I win the moments of lottery in your life.
It is fair to assume that most people would imagine themselves in a red, on a sunny day, with a smile of almost sunlight on their faces.
Those who are more enthusiastic of us can throw in a race track, like Fiorano, who was photographed here, surrounds the Ferrari factory in Maranello, and may even specify a wonderfully famous model – one 458, 488 or even F40.
Then imagine kicking in the balls, eventually riding one of these cars and discovering that its badge bears the laziest and most childish of all – the Superfast – and the Public roads you will drive snow covered, ice and desire to kill you. And it snows, so you can see.
Obviously it’s a relative push, obviously, like being told that your lottery win is just $ 10 million instead of $ 15 million, but it’s fair to say that the prospect of driving a road car. The strongest Ferrari school ever created (they don’t count La Ferrari, apparently, because it’s a special project) with the V12, 588kW (800 hp), more interesting than it really is.
Memorable, though? Oh yes, as you had hoped a $ 610,000 car would be.
Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with? 6/10
Is it possible that any car – saving one made from gold, diamond-coated and stuffed with truffles – will represent good value for $ 610,000? It seems impossible, but then those who can spend a lot of different test values, and will probably say that something as deep as 812 Superfast is worth buying at any price.
Another way to consider it is the price per liter, less than $ 100,000, considering you get the 6.5 liter V12 Ferrari donk. Or you can go by kilowatt, which costs nearly $ 1,000 per your 588kW.
In addition, you get a lot of leather, high-quality furniture, superior exterior styling, badge values that are hard to come by with a price and large array of F1-derived technologies. And a free tire. Is there anything interesting about its design? 9/10
It was huge, wasn’t it? And it looks even bigger than a bonnet you can use to place a roof on your tennis court. In total, the Superfast is 4.6m long, nearly 2.0m wide and weighs 1.5 tons, so it certainly has a presence.
Making something this big became a challenge even for talented people like Ferrari’s design team, but they nailed it. What lies ahead is a mouth, ready to swallow smaller cars like a Terminator shark.
The bonnet seems to be flashing through its nostrils, and looks great from the driver’s seat, and the side and rear complete everything nicely.
Personally, it still looks too big to be a Ferrari, but then, this is not a mid-engine supercar, it’s a monumental tourist rocket ship, and the The final manifestation of unnecessary redundancy, and it has completely removed that aura.
How realistic is the inner space? 7/10
Practicality isn’t your concern when you buy a two-seater supercar like this, so let Lei say it’s as realistic as you expect. No, very, then.
What are the important stats for engine and transmission? 9/10
I wanted to give the great 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine here, but when I stopped to think about it, I had to admit, it was quite possible, a bit too much. strong.
Yes, it’s amazing to think that Ferrari can build a car with a capacity of 588kW (800 horsepower – hence nomenclature 812; 800 horses and 12 cylinders) and not just dig a hole in the road itself. as soon as you put your foot down.
And yes, it provides the kind of performance that makes all other cars seem a bit uncomfortable and pathetic, even really good ones.
But to be honest, who can use it all, or need it all? They sound like unrelated questions, I guess, because it’s all about excessive redundancy, a car like this, so the real question is, does anyone want to live with the -588kW and 718Nm torque, or is it really too scary?
Yes, a little, yes, but Ferrari engineers were smart enough not to really give you all that power, all the time. Torque is limited to the first three gears and maximum mental power is really only available, theoretically, at 8500 rpm on the seventh gear, at which point you will reaches a maximum speed of 340km / h.
The fact that you can tune such a big engine, and this loud sound, up to 8500 rpm, however, is a joy that will never be tiring.
