Ferrari delights fans of its impeccable naturally aspirated V12 engine with the special release of a new hardcore version of the 812 Superfast, named after the famous racetrack.
The new Ferrari 812 Superfast was expected to be called the 812 GTO before Ferrari’s Chief Marketing Officer, Enrico Galliera, named the car the “812 Special Version”. FerrariChat now announces that the new 812 Superfast will be named the 812 Imola after the Italian racetrack of the same name.
Naming the most hardcore track-oriented version of the 812 Superfast after a racetrack makes a lot of sense, and there is plenty of evidence to support this theory. Ferrari registered the domain name for “812imola.com” in Italy back in June 2020 in preparation for the car’s presentation. The 812 Imola is also expected to debut on April 22, just days after the Italian Grand Prix, which is held at the Imola circuit. It is assumed that the Coupe and Spider 812 Imola versions will be presented at the same time, and production will be limited to 1200 units in total.
Performance is expected to come from the same naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine, which has been bumped from 789 bhp to 850 bhp. It is also reported to be hitting up to 9,000 rpm, so it should sound amazing. Leaked photos have shown that the hardcore 812 Superfast will have more aggressive aerodynamics, including a ventilated roof replacing the rear window, a new air intake and an enlarged rear diffuser. These improvements will inevitably lead to an increase in the price of the 812 Imola.
