Ferrari 812 Superfast To Receive Spider Version In September 2019

How many years has it been since the 812 Superfast came onto the super GT scene? The Prancing Horse of Maranello launched this model into production in 2017, and towards the end of the year, the successor of the F12berlinetta is expected to gain a drop-top sibling.

Rumors are rampant on Ferrari Chat about a September 2019 reveal, but not at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Dealerships don’t know a thing about the 812 Superfast Spider, but they’re taking orders nonetheless in anticipation of the reveal at Universo Ferrari.

There will be an 812 Spider unveiled on September 2nd according to a member of the forum, who suggests “this car will feature a folding top similar in its mechanism to the 458 and 488 Spider.” Adding fuel to the fire, “there will be an 812 GTO limited to 812 pieces for the U.S.A. only according to a well-informed source but not confirmed.”

Not limited in numbers but by the time that it will spend in production, the 812 Spider will be joined by the F8 Tributo Spider in September 2019 as well. With the LaFerrari out of the picture, the SF90 Stradale remains the range-topping Ferrari for the foreseeable future.

It’s not known if the F140 GA V12 will receive an upgrade with the introduction of the 812 Spider, more so if you remember that the outgoing version develops 800 PS (789 horsepower) out of the box. The engine is paired to a seven-speed DCT just like the F8 Tributo and 488 GTB before it while the plug-in hybrid SF90 Stradale levels up to eight gears.

The 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 in the 812 Superfast is the most powerful of its kind in a production car, which goes to show how good Ferrari is at developing high-performance engines. The F140 family started out as a 6.0-liter in the Enzo back in 2002, bored out to 6.3 liters in the LaFerrari.

In regards to pricing, another member approximates the 812 Spider to be 40,000 euros more expensive than the fixed-head coupe. When it launched in Germany, the 812 Superfast used to start at €293,337 before options.
