What's New for 2018?

The 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast is a completely new model, replacing the F12berlinetta, which was released for the 2013 model year.

What We Like

Gorgeous appearance; amazing performance numbers; continues Ferrari's front-engine V12 tradition

What We Don't

Huge price tag; V12-powered Ferrari models tend to depreciate sharply; too much power?

Overview

The 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast is the latest model in a Ferrari lineage that can be traced all the way back to the 1960s: the V12-powered two-seater. The 812 Superfast replaces the F12berlinetta, which itself replaced the 599 GTB. V12 Ferrari models before this included the 550 Maranello, Testarossa and more -- all the way back to the beloved 275 GTB.

But the 812 Superfast certainly offers the most impressive performance yet. That's courtesy of its massive V12 engine: a 6.5-liter affair with 789 horsepower, which is mated to a dual-clutch automatic that can send the car from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds -- and to a top speed of 210 miles per hour. The Superfast's 789 hp means it has 58 more horses than the already-amazing F12berlinetta, and the added horsepower gives the Superfast a performance edge.

Despite the huge power boost (and the new engine), however, the 812 Superfast's design doesn't differ sharply from the F12berlinetta's. It's more evolution than revolution, with new curves and angles -- but an overall shape that's largely similar, including a long front hood and a handsome sloping rear end. Inside, the 812 Superfast looks like it's sure to impress, with high-quality equipment and modern controls and displays.

Not surprisingly, all this won't come cheap. Since the 812 Superfast is still a few months from going on sale, Ferrari hasn't announced full pricing -- but it'll surely be more expensive than the F12berlinetta, which starts at an eye-popping $321,000 with shipping, before Ferrari's plentiful options. After options, it's likely some 812 Superfast models will crest the $400,000 mark -- a huge number, but surely worth it to many buyers who can't get the V12 Ferrari experience anywhere else.
