to the 48 12 a two-seat rear-wheel drive Grand Tour this is the great-great-great-great grandson of that original 166 interval the man those Ferrari engineers cannot stop tweaking take this engine where the old car made about a hundred horsepower this makes eight hundred eight hundred horsepower that’s not and while they spent 70 years figuring out how to cram in all that power I guess they ran out of time to give it a proper name this car’s official title is the Ferrari 812 superfast that’s right superfast that is literal that’s like naming your new dog dog now in fairness this car is pretty super fast you lose zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds and at the top speed of 211 miles per hour the six and a half liter v12 is a masterpiece no other word for it it’s the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever found in a road car no turbos no electric motors just cylinders and pistons turning petrol into speed and noise oh this thing all keep your eyes on the road with this which could be a problem because Ferrari calls this a grand tourer and beneath those sculpted curves it does have a comfortable leather lined interior and room for luggage so it really should be the perfect way to waft across Europe in relaxed elegance this car however is about as relaxing as a full body wax all that tweaking all those upgrades they’ve ended up with a road car that’s just too fast to use on the road but who says we have to stick to the road because just over that hill is a lovely little circuit called out of the corner a straight Marion right foot in the middle of the next quarter it is amazing this thing Tamburello at Imola you’re never far from the memory of where extreme performance can lead but today the science behind keeping an 800 horsepower road car in check is nothing short of incredible
