The Ferrari 812 Superfast has taken the automotive world by storm since its release, hailed as a groundbreaking supercar the pushes the limits of performance and design. The 812 GTS shares much of the same DNA as the Superfast — but it comes with a droptop! When comparing the Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. GTS, the retractable hardtop is the most obvious difference, but there’s more to it than that.


Design

Aside from the physical differences of a coupe vs. a convertible, perhaps the most exciting thing about the GTS to Prancing Horse enthusiasts will be aural. With the top down, you can hear the throaty roar of the V12 engine in all its glory as it propels you down the track, or even just on the highways between Chicago and Indianapolis.

Additionally, while the front ends of both vehicles are nearly identical, there are significant differences in how the rear of each looks. Perhaps the most obvious point of divergence is the buttresses on the GTS, which offer a contrast to the long, sloping rear of the Superfast. The 812 GTS also boasts a redesigned rear diffuser, a necessary addition to compensate for the lost downforce from eliminating the rear wheel arch bypass duct.

Powertrain and Performance

  • Engine: Naturally Aspirated 6.5L V12
  • Horsepower: 799 hp @ 8,500 rpm
  • Torque: 529 lb-ft @ 7,000 rpm
  • Transmission: Seven-speed dual-clutch
  • Top Speed: 211 mph
  • 812 Superfast Acceleration: 0 – 62 mph in 2.9 seconds
  • 812 GTS Acceleration: 0 – 62 mph in 3 seconds

Any Ferrari 812, convertible or not, comes equipped with the same engine, and both are able to reach a top speed of 211 mph. While the GTS’s transmission has shorter throw rations that that of the Superfast, the only noticeable cost of the drop-top is that the 812 GTS takes a tenth of a second longer to reach 62 mph from a standstill — but if you want the singular experience of the wind in your hair while driving a Ferrari, it’s a small price to pay. Have we mentioned that the hardtop can be retracted or deployed in only 14 seconds at speeds of up to 28 mph?
