The world is deluged with so much mainstream that rarity has become a necessity for those who crave it. We have been witnessing an era of complete dominance by the SUV segment and the auto industry is also swaying towards that and exactly at that intersection is where the Ferrari comes as something which is unique and special with its all-new Ferrari 812 Superfast

The 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast is available in a single trim and costs a hefty amount of $341,712 but it features all that stuff packed inside it which justifies that price tag. It is no less than a speculated nightmare for the likes of the Mclaren 720S, 2021 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, and Lamborghini Aventador SV J and that is why it would be interesting to see if it stands tall against them as expected.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Features

The 812 Superfast comes as a lone survivor in this maze run. One of a kind and the very first one to own an EPS in the Ferrari tradition is another level of exclusivity and privacy. It has both the functionality and appearance for all its attachments right from the 20” Forged Matte Gray Racing Wheels to the Rear Titanium Exhaust Pipes. The attention to detail by Ferrari is simply out of this league as they have so smartly engineered the knot between the Sports Tuned Suspension and Sport Driving Mode that negative camber is available at 24x7 service which ensures maximum handling while cornering.

2021 812 Superfast does have other features as well which are equivalent in importance and purpose and those are the High-Bolstered Monocoque Carbon Racing Seats, Memory Function for the same, and Voice-Activated Gestures. Dual-zone climate control has been embedded into it as well for maintaining the temperature threshold inside the cabin along with different variations for the rev counter. Hence, the Ferrari leaves no stone unturned in the middle of all these arrangements and is a class apart by a mile.

Which Trim should you buy?

Since there is no such trim tree, choosing between options is already diminished to none but if we have to decide if it is worth owning then one could hardly be negative towards that philosophy. High-end performance, peak cabin insulation, and mouthwatering interior appeal are what you are entitled to relish by investing in the 812 Superfast. Leave behind all the convenience somewhere in the hay, the muscular road presence itself would let you have your day satisfied on all fronts and in all aspects.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Engine and Performance

9.9/10

The 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast comes equipped with a 6.5L V12 engine inside its belly. The sound is as loud as its performance curve. The V12 churns out a power of 789 hp @8,900 rpm and a maximum torque of 529 lb-ft @7,000 rpm. It is mated to a 7-Speed Automatic transmission which transfers the output to the axles via RWD drive layout.

The package, as a result, hit the road with a mind-boggling acceleration with which it achieves 0-60 mph mark within 2.7 seconds and a quarter-mile in 10.2 seconds. The high-rev band of this powertrain allows it to touch 211 mph on the rev counter.

The rivals like 720S and Aventador SVJ coincidentally hit the same figures as that of the 812 Superfast irrespective of parameters. The only gap we could see is that of the top speed where the Lambo swift past them in a straight-mile stretch with 5-mph more flooring. The DBS Superleggera comes last despite being better on paper and having a twin-turbo V12. The slack might have been probably caused due to weight distribution as it is the heaviest among all. Therefore, we would rate 812 Superfast, 720S, and Aventador SVJ on the same scale of preference.

How well does the 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast handle?

The 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast handles at the peak no matter wherever you drive except the rough terrain where its ground clearance won’t be an issue. It has an exceptionally tuned sports suspension attached to its wheels which controls the ride height, caster, and cambering all at once without any hassle. Then comes the EPS which is as responsive as it can be with its top-tier feedback and inputs at the driver’s end.

The handling phenomenon does include cornering stability which is taken care of by the Ferrari Peak Performance unit. Now adding an uncertainty factor which compels for sudden hard braking, then that is compensated by the ESP 9.1 Premium and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution which level the braking impact as per Pascal’s law. On the whole, there is no loophole in this machinery.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Braking Performance

The 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast has an efficient braking system as it is brought to a complete standstill from 60 mph within a travel of 101.7 ft. Part of the credits can be given to its Brembo brake designs with 15.6” front and 14.1 rear rotors in pairing with the high-performance ABS. The ESP 9.1 Premium and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution have also been incorporated into it to reduce those extra feet and negating wheel slippage at the same time. Even the 53% rear weight distribution helps in reducing the forward diving to a large extent.

Although the braking distance of the 812 Superfast might be lagging behind other rivals, imagine yourself speeding at more than 200 mph yet capable of controlling it within some 100 ft. That is still exemplary in all respects. It is a different story altogether that Mclaren 720S and Aventador SVJ can do it slightly better and remain under the 100ft mark. Thus, all of them scale at par with one other in this category except for the Aston Martin counterpart as we don’t have the same reading for it.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Fuel Economy

3.5/10

  Honestly speaking if one is capable of investing more than $200,000 in a shot then this department is not of his/her interest in any case. But for the record’s sake, one notices that the 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast can give you a return of 12 mpg in the city, 16 mpg on the highways, and a mileage of 13 mpg overall. These figures with a 24.3-gallon fuel tank can let him/her cover a range of up to 388.8 miles at the max. Even with modification, one would hardly make an impact on these figures.

In comparison, the rivals like McLaren 720S and Aston Martin DBS Superleggera give better economy with 22 mpg each on the highways. The Aston Martin is even capable of hitting more than 450-mile mark in a go meaning a long duration of high acceleration prowess. Unfortunately, this section will remain inconclusive because of a lack of data and immaterial as per the segment’s purpose. Hence, it would be sanity on our end to not let this factor drive us towards any specific one.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Interior

5.5/10

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is the epitome of interior accents and trims. The cabin enlightens us with its sumptuous seat appeal as it has been crafted with diapason design language. It varies from Daytona to Monocoque Carbon Racing seats with perforated leatherette being common throughout.

Not just that, the color contrast inside the cabin can be chosen among the Tortora, Blu Sterling, Iroko, and Rosso Ferrari. To keep the flow inline, the detailing has been maintained even at the carpet flooring as it tends to get embroidered logos. But it is not at all surprising for the fact that the Ferrari has been cautious for all these years for every aspect possible.

Since data for these charming beasts are not available, one really can’t say very much about their supremacy over one another. But it is at the same time not impossible to comment on them individually in a generic term. As each of them will have an inclined seat positioning for their occupants simply because of the low sloping of the roofline. In addition to the description, the cabin insulation can also be expected to be at par with one another as they all have a high growling powertrain inside their bellies. 

Some of the features are:

  • Monocoque Carbon Racing seats
  • Tortora interior accents
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Adjustable steering column
  • Nero-trimmed carpet floor

What’s there to keep you entertained?

Well, what could you expect from one of the flagship models of a brand that has hardly anything to achieve to date. We believe nothing as such. This has been stated to drive home the point that the narrative is even true for the 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast. A top-notch navigation unit to keep oneself tracked by all means in conjunction with a 9” touchscreen display unit. The listening enrichment is fulfilled by the 6-speaker high bass audio unit. In addition to that, one also gets voice-recognition gestures at disposal along with the Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth Connectivity.

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Exterior

9.0/10

The 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast is akin to an oasis of styling in the desert of platitude. Nothing less, nothing more, just perfectly craved to bring out the emotions. Aggressive pursuit with its high-curved wheel arches over the available wheel setups like the 20” Forged Matte Gray Racing Wheels, Forged Matte Grigio Corsa Diamond Cut Wheels, and 20” Forged Matte Gray Diamond Polished Racing Wheels. Neighboring those arches are the high-pressure generating vents, underbody dams along with an active spoiler in the end to improve the much-needed downforce. In addition to these, one can even get cladded with color trims like the Rosso Corsa, Bianco Avus, and many more.

As far as the dimensional boundary of this Body style is concerned, it becomes a prerequisite to have lower height with a negligible ground clearance to counter lift and lower the center of gravity. And that is what we can see a general pattern among all the rivals. One of the other takeaways is their long streamlined body lines and creases all-around their silhouette to manage airflow management. On top of that, the 812 Superfast even gets a weight distribution of 47% shares in the front and 53% in the rear which are phenomenal for both acceleration and braking. 

Some of the features are:

  • Underbody dams
  • Rosso Corsa and Bianco Avus exterior color trims
  • 20” Forged Matte Gray Racing Wheels
  • Active rear spoiler
  •  High-pressure generating vents

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Safety

4.5/10

The Ferrari 812 Superfast, being top-notch, of the brand has not been tested by the NHTSA and IIHS due to its limited production and sheer high-cost sheet. But it is in itself a testament to the structural integrity it has been composed of. The carbon-fiber panels surround this machinery all-around this fluidic curvature. To further assist this soundness, it gets a whole new set of functionalities to improve its control around the corner at the highest speed possible. The list entails the mentioning of the Ferrari Power Oversteer and Ferrari Peak Performance units. Thus, one can be reassured of safe high-speed maneuvering without any tension. 

Some of the features are:

  • Ferrari Power Oversteer
  • Ferrari Peak Performance
  • Standard front and rear parking sensors
  • Carbon-fiber panels

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Competition

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. 2021 McLaren 720S

The Ferrari 812 Superfast and McLaren 720S are quite a competitor as they are parallel to one another in one of the most important aspects of this segment i.e. performance. They even are at par in their luxury and interior accents. It is the exterior appeal where Ferrari might edge the 720S out but then that is balanced by the cheaper yet expensive price tag of the latter. Therefore, we rate these on the same block, and choosing one is a completely subjective matter as of now.

2021 McLaren 720S

 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. 2021 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

The 812 Superfast seems to outclass the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera quite easily in the performance exhilaration. It is also more appealing and aesthetically consistent than the latter. However, DBS Superleggera might have a capacity of 4 but it is not practical when it is a matter of comfortable riding. Thus, we would prefer Ferrari over Aston Martin for staying true to the segment.

2021 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

 2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Well, Ferrari might be a piece of competent machinery but nothing can be any way closer to what Lambo Aventador SV J represents. Its sheer acceleration, performance dynamics, and appearance are far superior to anyone in this segment. That might be a reason it is so expensive but it feels completely reasonable to invest this much in it. Therefore, the bias tends to favor Lambo here.

2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

 

2021 Ferrari 812 Superfast Final Verdict

The Ferrari 812 Superfast has all those characteristics which make it a must-buy. A perfectly matched silhouette and highly insulated cabin along with performance are what you would get at your disposal. Stability control-related sensors and tech complexities will also leave you spellbound. Hence, it has all rights to make it to the wishlist.
