Geneva, 7 March 2017  - Ferrari kicks off its 70th anniversary with the world premiere of its most powerful  production car yet, the 800-cv 812  Superfast. The unveiling of this flagship V12 berlinetta is particularly significant, as Ferrari’s noble  V12 heritage has its roots in the founding of the company, 70 years ago  this year, and  Ferrari remains  to this day  the only manufacturer to have  continuously  produced sports cars  with 12- cylinder engines throughout that time.

Powered  by a new 6.5-litre V12, the 812  Superfast is the benchmark in the mid-front- engined  sports car segment, achieving its maximum power output at 8,500 rpm, which ensures  the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive characteristic of Ferrari’s V12s. Maximum torque is 718 Nm @ 7,000 rpm,  a significant 80% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm, improving driveability and pick-up at low revs.

The 812 Superfast is striking for both its highly innovative design and  aero package, as well as  its  unparalleled  handling.  It is the  first Ferrari  to introduce  Electric  Power Steering (EPS) which, in line with Ferrari tradition, is used  to fully exploit the potential of the car  in terms of performance. The introduction  of the Virtual  Short Wheelbase 2.0  system (PCV) combines the electric front-wheel steering assistance with the mechanical  concept  based   on   tyre  dimensions   and   the  rear-wheel   steering.  All integrated with the vehicle dynamics  control systems, based  on Version 5.0 of the SSC, with the aim of improving the agility and response time to steering wheel inputs.

The two examples of the 812 Superfast on display feature new colours:  the special celebratory Rosso 70 Anni and Grigio Caldo  Opaco. The new car is joined on the stand in Geneva by the California  T, finished in Bianco Italia, the 488 GTB in Giallo Tristrato, the 488 Spider in classic Rosso Corsa,  and the GTC4Lusso in Nero Stellato.

There is also a further example of Ferrari’s exclusive liveries developed to celebrate the 70th Anniversary, one of the 70 different Tailor Made offerings inspired  by iconic cars in the company’s history that are available  on each  of the five models  in the range.  The 488  GTB on  show  is finished  in Rosso  Corsa  with a Blu Laguna  and  Giallo Modena livery inspired  by the 290 MM driven by Juan Manuel  Fangio in the 1956  Mille Miglia, which saw Ferraris take the top four places.
