KUALA LUMPUR: The Ferrari 812 Superfast was introduced at the base price of RM1,578,800 (excluding duty and customisation options).
Naza Italia, official importer and distributor of the Ferrari brand in Malaysia, introduced the supercar at Zebra Square Kuala Lumpur today.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast is the brand’s newest supercar in a long line of front-engined V12s.
Powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800ps, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is the new benchmark in the front mid-engine sports car segment, achieving maximum power output at 8,500rpm, which translates to a specific power output of 123 ps per litre.
These figures have never been delivered by any previous front mid-engine car.
The maximum torque is 718Nm at 7,000rpm, a significant 80% of which is already available at 3,500rpm, improving both drivability and pick-up even at low revs.
Power is delivered via a 7-speed, F1 DCT (dual clutch transmission).
It does the 0 to 100kph sprint in 2.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 340kph.
The 812 Superfast is also the first Ferrari to adopt Electric Power Steering (EPS).
It has a 1,630kg kerb weight, and runs on 20-inch rims.
It also sees the introduction of the Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0 system (PCV), which combines electric front-wheel steering assistance with the mechanical concept built around tyre dimensions and the rear-wheel steering.
These systems are integrated with the vehicle dynamics control system based on the latest 5.0 version of Side Slip Control (SSC), intended to improve the agility, nimbleness of handling and reduce the vehicle response times.
Compared with the F12, the downforce of the new model has increased 10 per cent and its downforce at the rear fender duct has risen 8 per cent.
“Ferrari has once again pushed the boundaries of its own achievements with the exceptionally futuristic 812 Superfast, the most powerful and fastest road-going Ferrari in the marque’s 70-year history. Naza Italia is thrilled to present this unique model for the first time in Malaysia, for we consistently strive to provide our discerning clientele with a varied and exclusive product line-up, all the while infusing passion into the 360 degree Ferrari customer experience,” said Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, group executive chairman of Naza World Group of Companies.
