Ferrari 812 Superfast: Geneva Auto Show - Video

Ferrari's latest was shown at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show this week: the 812 Superfast. The name comes from an old Ferrari prototype from the late 1950s.

Under the hood, the Ferrari 812 Superfast uses a 6.5-liter V12 -- no turbo or supercharger here.

It's good for 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It should be able to go from 0 to almost 130 miles per hour in about 8 seconds.

The Superfast also uses electric power steering and has a front-mounted engine combined with a rear-mounted transmission.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is reportedly the end of the line for naturally aspirated models, as future Ferrari vehicles will likely use turbocharging and hybrid technology to decrease emissions and improve fuel economy -- a rumor Ferrari hasn't yet confirmed.
