2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast: 211 MPH


The 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast.

Ferrari stopped being subtle in its nomenclature long ago—hey there, Ferrari TheFerrari!—so now they’re just putting descriptions like “Superfast” right in the model name. But the Ferrari 812 Superfast isn’t false advertising: Maranello has bolted in the most powerful engine ever seen in a road-going Ferrari, a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 with 789 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of twist, mated to a dual-clutch gearbox that’s quicker even than the already super-fast (hey, we see why they used the name—it’s got a ring to it!) unit in the Ferrari F12berlinetta. The supercar will go from a standstill to 60 mph in a tick under three seconds, and represents the high-water mark for fans of heavy-breathing V-12 Ferrari engines: the 812 Superfast is reportedly the last Ferrari to sport a naturally-aspirated motor before focus shifts to turbocharging and hybrid assists. If you’ve got $320,000 burning a hole in your pocket (not to mention the insane connections needed to actually buy a new 812 Superfast in the first place) this car would make for a good investment for that reason alone.
