Rent Ferrari 812 Superfast in Europe
As is tradition with Ferrari’s ‘GTS’ variants, the 308/328 GTS, 348 and 355 GTS, and now this new 812, it’s all about a removable targa-style roof section with a fixed, glass rear window, offering most of the ‘best of both worlds’ between a coupe and convertible. Up until today, said top is a lightweight, lift-off unit. For the 348 GTS and 355 GTS, this was offered alongside traditional soft-top “Spider” variants. For the 812 GTS, there is not much differentiating the power retractable targa roof, which drops in a scant 14 seconds, from the “Spider” roof mechanism of the current F8, including the retractable glass rear window. Semantics, I know, but the lines are basically blurred into the same thing, as Maranello hasn’t built a soft-top spider in 11 years.
Mechanically, the 812 GTS is identical to the Berlinetta Superfast–a maniacal 789HP 6.5L V12 that stops a single tick shy of nine. Eighty percent of the 553 lb/ft are available at just 3,500 RPM. (You know you’re talking about Ferrari when you put the word just in front of a peak torque number that’s more than halfway up the average car’s rev counter). Even with the GTS’s 189 lb weight penalty, which puts the thing just shy of two tons, predictable sprints to sixty in less than three seconds and quarter mile times in the mid-tens are easy, repeatable, and with that soundtrack, a treat.
