Rent a Ferrari 812 Competizione, a limited production – 999 coupes (plus 599 of the open-top Aperta) – track focused version of the Ferrari 812 superfast, to continue the tradition of producing light weight limited edition runs of Ferrari’s legendary front mid-engined V12 Berlinetta platform (previously we have seen the F12 TDF and 599 GTO).
Like the 812 superfast the new 812 Competizione is powered by a mighty naturally aspirated 6.5L V12, although the Competizione receives some power upgrades. This car comes packed with an impressive 819 horsepower and 692 Nm of torque, with the redline at 9,500 rpm – truly incredible. The Competizione also boasts extensive aerodynamic upgrades and is the first Ferrari to feature an independent four-wheel steering system, which means the left and right rear wheels can steer independently, giving you a boost in cornering performance and feeling of stability.
Most of the innovative technology is hidden, and there are also a few upgrades that are more easily spotted. The new front ‘Aero’ brake calipers, also seen in the SF90 Stradale, have an air intake integrated into its casting resulting in improved pedal feel under hard braking. Also the cooling system has been improved in many ways, most noticeably with a single front air intake that maximises the amount air of cooling air channelled towards the radiators (on the 812 superfast the engine air intakes are set either side of the large central grille).
Thanks to some clever weight reduction the 812 Competizione is a bit lighter than the 812 superfast (38kg), and also a bit quicker. It will accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.85 seconds – that is 0.05 seconds quicker than the 812 superfast – and the top speed remains at 340 km/h. The 49% front / 51% rear weight distribution is very impressive for a front-engined rear wheel-drive GT, and it is safe to say that the 812 Competizione is one of the most advanced supercars you can experience. And it is as practical as something this powerful gets – with a similar boot space to the 812 superfast you can actually pack a decent amount of luggage for your journey.
