This is the Ferrari with the most powerful 800hpV12 production engine ever.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast officially made its debut in Philippines, exactly after one year since its international premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2017. This was the first time for the local launch to have two units available for viewing, equipped with different options, highlighting both sporty and elegant sides of the 812 Superfast. One unit in Rosso Corsa with classic Ferrari tan interior and the other one in Bianco Avus with Bordeaux interior, showing off the possible carbon fibre options and the level of personalization one can get on their unit.
“The challenge that Ferrari always faces in developing new models is to push the boundaries of its own achievement,” said Autostrada Chairman Wellington Soong. “After intensive research and development, this is what they achieved with the 812 Superfast – the fastest and most powerful 12-cylinder engine in the 70-year history of Ferrari.”
Autostrada Motore’s Managing Director Marc Soong gave the welcome remarks, and briefly discussed the technology that developed the 812 Superfast. Italian Embassy Charge d’affaires Mr. Fabio Schina extolled Autostrada’s effort in promoting Ferrari in the Philippines.
