At Maranello, Italy, Ferrari showcased two new upgraded versions, derived by their 812 Superfast. Called the 812 Competizione which is a coupe and its open top sibling the 812 Competizione A. The A is short for Aperta, which translates to open top. The most exciting part about these beauties is that the naturally aspirated V12 can to rev up to a massive 9,500 rpm! It was presented at recently opened GT Sporting Activities Department alongside Fiorano race track.

Everybody loves that unmistakable sound of a Ferrari V12, in order to maintain that legacy, Ferrari provides an upgraded version of the award winning 812 Superfast V12 engine for the 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A. The 6.5-liter V12 has been fine tuned to deliver 830hp and 692 Nm of torque. The engine is allowed to go up to a 9,500 rpm, highest ever in a road driven Ferrari. The 7-speed F1 DCT automatic gearbox which shifts faster by 5%. Sadly, both of these most probably will be the last ever naturally-aspirated front-engined V12 Ferraris to be ever built.

The 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A has about 30hp more than the older 812 Superfast. It goes from 0-100 km/h in 2.85 seconds, unchanged from that of the 812 Superfast; and 0-200 km/h in 7.5 seconds. The top speed is 340 km/h, thanks to the added power and reduction of nearly 38kgs of overall weight as compared to the 812 Superfast by mainly adding carbon fiber exteriors such as the front and rear bumpers, rear spoiler and air intakes. The interiors are not very different from the 812 Superfast but it also has been enhanced with some carbon fiber tweaks here and there and a reduction in soundproofing. All carbon fiber wheels will also be available for the first time in a Ferrari V12 which will provide a weight reduction of an additional 3.7 kg as compared to that of 812 Superfast.

The 812 Competizion and 812 Competizion A will be manufactured in limited numbers of 999 units and 599 units respectively. Lots of styling tweaks has been done, from front bumper and splitter, large diffuser and rectangular exhaust tips placed at the edge of the diffuser. The 812 Competizione got a fastback styling with an aluminum structure which replaces the rear glass window.

When these days dual turbochargers seem to be the way to go for supercars, we just can’t help but drool over Ferrari’s massive V12 NA engine! Call us old fashioned, but the sound of a sweet Ferrari exhaust note, from a growling V12 revving at 9k+ RPM just makes us go weak in the knees and the stomach. Sadly, this will be the last V12 naturally aspirated engine from Ferrari – we will always remain fans!
