Ferrari 812 Superfast Engine Specs

November 15th, 2019 by

Gray Ferrari 812 Superfast
With the debut of 812 Superfast, Ferrari put all other sports cars and performance vehicles on notice; and with the reveal of the convertible 812 GTS, Ferrari made the statement that world-class speed and open-air driving enjoyment go hand-in-hand. No matter which you choose, the Ferrari 812’s engine is a marvel of engineering and performance capability.


  • Engine: Naturally Aspirated 6.5L V12
  • Horsepower: 800 hp @ 8,500 rpm
  • Torque: 529 lb-ft @ 7,000 rpm
  • Transmission: Seven-speed dual-clutch

The Ferrari 812 Superfast engine is the same as that of the 812 GTS, with both producing near 800 hp and 529 lb-ft of torque. Where they differ is in the transmission: while both feature a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the transmission in the 812 GTS features shorter ratios.

Top Speed and Acceleration

  • Top Speed: 211 mph
  • 812 Superfast Acceleration: 0 – 62 mph in 2.9 seconds
  • 812 GTS Acceleration: 0 – 62 mph in 3 seconds

The fact that the Ferrari 812 Superfast and its convertible counterpart both share a top speed of 211 mph is a testament to the Prancing Horse’s aerodynamic ingenuity. The drop-top does come at a very slight cost, though: while the Superfast can leap from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, the GTS requires an additional tenth of a second, reaching 62 mph in an impressive 3 seconds.


The acoustics are perhaps where the 812 GTS shines most brightly against the 812 Superfast, since it allows you to hear the glorious roar of this Prancing Horse’s V12 engine revving up to 8,900 rpm with the top down. Nothing quite compares to the sound of a Ferrari in the open air — it’ll blow you away on the track, but it’s just as impressive when you’re cruising on the highways between Chicago and Indianapolis.
