its historic predecessors, the Ferrari 812 GTS sets a new benchmark in terms of
performance and exclusivity. Sporting Ferrari’s majestic 800 cv V12, it is not
merely the most powerful production spider on the market, but also the most
versatile, thanks to its retractable hard top, a unique feature in this segment
which also guarantees a larger boot capacity.
50 years on from the debut of the last spider in the Ferrari range to sport a
front-mounted V12, the 812 GTS hails a triumphant return for a model type that
has played a pivotal role in the marque’s history since its foundation.
Ferrari V12 spider story features many iconic models and began in 1948 with the
166 MM, an authentic thoroughbred competition GT that won the two most
prestigious endurance races in the world in 1949: the Mille Miglia and the 24
Hours of Le Mans.
last in that long lineage was the 1969 365 GTS4, also known as the Daytona
Spider because of Ferrari’s legendary victory in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona
when two works 330 P4s and the NART-entered 412 P took the chequered flag
side-by-side to occupy the top three places.
front-mounted V12 architecture has not been used in a Ferrari series-production
spider since the 365 GTS4. The retractable hard top (RHT), which opens in just
14 seconds at speeds of up to 45 km/h, does not impinge upon the interior dimensions,
thus maintaining the donor car’s roomy cockpit. The electric rear screen, which
acts as a wind-stop, makes the car truly useable with the top down while, with
the top up, it can be left open to allow occupants to continue to luxuriate in
the naturally-aspirated V12’s unique soundtrack.
812 GTS is the spider version of the 812 Superfast which unleashes a massive
800 cv at 8500 rpm and 718 Nm of torque.
on the 812 Superfast, these performance levels were achieved in part by
optimising the engine design and in part by innovations, such as the use of a
350 bar direct injection system, and the control system for the variable
geometry inlet tracts, developed on naturally-aspirated F1 engines. These
systems allowed the increase in displacement from 6.2 to 6.5 litres to be
exploited to maximise power output whilst retaining excellent pick-up even at
high pressure injection system also improves nebulisation of the injected fuel
thus dramatically reducing the amount of particulates emitted when the
catalytic converter is warming up, and the fitment of a Gasoline Particulate
Filter (GPF) together with the Stop & Start On the Move strategy, which
cuts and restart the engine while the car is on the move, ensures the engine
complies with all emissions regulations.
attention was also paid to calibrating the Manettino settings to enhance the
engine’s potential and the sensation of extreme power delivered by the car.
That said, the driver will always be able to easily and confidently dose the
massive torque available with the accelerator pedal, thanks to smooth,
progressive power delivery at all engine speeds.
