0 - 60 MPH Time
Demonstrating a continued commitment to advancing the idea of what a supercar can do, Ferrari has released the 812 Competizione, an impressive refinement of the widely heralded 812 Superfast. Comparing the Ferrari 812 Competizione vs. Superfast reveals that both cars are world-class performers that match each other in top speed and 0-60-mph time, but the Competizione offers more horsepower, higher revs, and a variety of aerodynamic enhancements. In other words, the Competizione pushes the vehicle’s architecture that little bit further.
Top Gear calls the 812 Competizione “a sort of alternate-reality Superfast where everything has been turned up to 11,” and the engine specs speak to that. While it’s true that both models come equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 engine that channels its power through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Competizione offers more horsepower at a higher rev limit than the Superfast: 819 hp @ 9,500 rpm vs. 800 hp @ 8,500 rpm. While it’s true that the 812 Superfast offers slightly more torque than the 812 Competizione (529 lb-ft vs 510 lb-ft), the Competizione more than makes up for it with some impressive modifications to its design, including a coating of diamond-like carbon to the engine’s camshafts.
As any fan of the Prancing Horse knows, a car’s performance is about much more than the engine, and the Ferrari 812 Competizione has several enhancements over the 812 Superfast, including:
This is the rub: there are simply fewer Competizione models out there than Superfast models. While the 812 Superfast continues to be produced as of July 2021, the Competizione is a truly limited model: only 1,598 Competizione models will be produced, with 999 being the standard 812 Competizione and 599 of the convertible Competizione Aperta.
Considering the 812 Superfast vs. 812 Competizione makes one thing clear: while both are world-class supercars, the definitive version of the 812 is the Competizione.
