Ferrari has launched its 812 Superfast, at Rs 5.2 crore (ex-showroom), in India. This ‘base’ price is without personalisations and options. This front-engined, rear-wheel drive V12 Ferrari is a replacement for the F12 Berlinetta. It’s fast, in fact, it can hit 100kph in just 2.9sec and can go on to hit a top speed of 340kph.
Under the hood sits a powerful 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 petrol engine that makes 800hpm making it the most powerful series-production Ferrari of all time. The Ferrari is fitted with an electric power steering (EPS) as well and other electronic aids like Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 (rear-wheel steering), F1-Trac (progressive traction control), SSC (Side Slip Control) and a third-generation e-differential.
The cabin seats two and there’s a lot of personalisation available. Buyers end up spending anywhere upwards of Rs 40 lakh when it comes to options. The first 812 Superfast will make it to India in a few months.
