GT & Sport Cars
Maranello, 1 December 2017 – Australia’s leading performance car magazine, Motor, has awarded the Ferrari 812 Superfast its Best Engine Award.
In the December issue of the magazine, Motor praised the 800 cv (588 kW) V12 engine for its throttle response, performance and sound, writing that Ferrari’s V12 powertrain “towers above almost everything else for power and theatre,” and concluding that “it’s one of the greats.”
The 812 Superfast is the most high-performance production Ferrari ever and its engine is 75% new, with an increase in displacement from 6.2 to 6.5 litres to maximise the power output whilst retaining excellent pick-up even at low revs. The 6496cc V12 revs to a heady 8900 and, despite the 60cv increase in maximum power, CO2 emissions are reduced by 20g/km.
