To make a Ferrari F12 vs. 812 Superfast comparison os to consider two titans of the Prancing Horse lineup. Both are closely related front-engine cars — the 812 Superfast replaced the F12berlinetta in the Ferrari lineup in 2018 — and both offer blistering speed and a joyful driving experience, but there are notable differences between the two models.


Performance and Powertrain

Any comparison of the Ferrari F12berlinetta vs. 812 Superfast will note that the Superfast’s powertrain is largely an evolution of the F12’s. Not only has the engine’s displacement been increased, but it’s horsepower (800 hp vs. 731 hp) and torque (529 lb-ft vs. 508 lb-ft) outputs have also risen. With a new adaptive transmission and a new electric power steering system, the 812 Superfast offers an incredible driving experience all its own.

In terms of raw performance, both supercars leap from a standstill to 62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds and both can reach speeds of 211 mph. You’ll notice a difference on the track, however: the 812 Superfast’s new technology makes this Prancing Horse easier to handle than its predecessor, making it more accessible to less-experienced drivers.

The Superfast’s Electronic Power Steering system also comes with two helpful features to help you stay in control: Ferrari Peak Performance (FPP) and Ferrari Power Oversteer (FPO). FPP actively adjusts steering wheel torque to help with cornering, while FPO modulates steering torque while coming out of turns and accelerating.
