Ferrari 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A Revealed
The long-awaited Ferrari 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A, 812 Superfast, 812 GTS have been carried out by Ferrari, respectively in the limited edition models. Both supercars are manufactured in small quantity with a production of just 999 units for the Competizione, although only 599 are manufactured for the Competizione A. Prices are well over half a million euros for both without the addition of options and they have been sold out entirely.
The latest 812 Competizione A shares many design features such as the harder front punch and splitter and the carbon blade running over the cap. For Competizione (coupe), an aluminum frame is used to cover the rear window with a vortex generator, which gives it a modern, quick-back-styled silhouette. The Competizione A in the meantime receives a number of flight buttresses with an embedded bumper that adds a downforce. The integrated spoiler for the two supercars is more traditional but violent than the cars on which they are based, with Ferrari returning back to its rally cars at the beginning of the 60s.
Following the rear, Ferrari 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A get a huge new diffuser and shutters to cool the brakes along with an exhaust repositioned.
A 6.5-liter 65-degree V12 engine with a monstrous 830hp, up to 30hp of a regular vehicle, is given to the latest Competizione and Competizione A. As already mentioned, it is the most powerful production series ever produced by Ferrari V12. The natural vacuum engine receives a redline of 9500rpm, allowed by updates in the valve timing system, new titanium rods, and new carbon pins within the pistons, with a camshaft that reduces friction. The crankshaft was also updated, 3 percent lighter now, and a new intake was introduced, which is adapted to maximize explosion power inside the combustion chamber. The dual-clutch seven-speed transmission system was also recalibrated to have quicker changes of 5%.
The supercars also get a new high-performance exhaust that makes it possible to breathe easier than the regular Superfast and GTS models, but also sounds better. The new Ferrari side-slip control and rear-wheel steering generation will be also updated, offering the driver even more control.
Unlike the predecessors of the Competizione, the 599 GTO or the F12 TDF that never arrived in India due to a lack of allocation, our sources say that some units of the Ferrari 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A will do so, as the two cars are fairly interested in both by current customers in the nation. As it arrives in India, Ferrari expects to only sell to consumers next year – close to when European deliveries for these limited edition cars started. Naturally, when released in India it expects to see prices well above Rs 10 crore.
