What's all this about?

If you somehow think the 800hp, V12-powered Ferrari 812 Superfast isn't, er, super-fast enough, then you'll like the look of this. Due to be given a world debut on May 5, this is a new V12 limited-edition model based upon said 812 Superfast. Only it's even super-faster-er. Or something.

Has it got a name?

Officially, not as yet. It is simply a limited-edition Ferrari V12, in Maranello-speak. Anyway, the 6.5-litre V12 used in the big Fezza has been given new componentry, including the valve-timing mechanism and the exhaust, to liberate fully 830hp. It also revs to a giddy 9,500rpm, which makes it the most screaming Ferrari production ICE yet to see the light of day.

Beyond that, Ferrari has added chassis technology in the form of four-wheel steering, has uprated the fabled Side Slip Control vehicle dynamics system to version 7.0, and then has taken away from the 812 Superfast in the most important fashion possible - with regards weight. The extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out is said to have reduced the mass of the limited edition, although by what extent remains a mystery for now.

Inside, lighter door cards and a H-gate theme to the transmission tunnel enhance the 812 Superfast's interior ambience to a significant degree, while you can't fail to have noticed the improved aerodynamics on the outside. This includes new profiles for the front air intakes, the rear diffuser and the exhausts' configuration, while there's also a transverse carbon-fibre blade on the Ferrari's bonnet, but it's the rear 'screen' which sees the biggest change. Gone is the 812's glass affair, replaced by a single-piece aluminium panel complete with vortex generators.

All looks very appealing and we'll bring you more details on the car, once it is fully detailed on May 5.
