Ferrari 812 Superfast video review: deciphering the 789bhp GT

Published: 04 September 2020

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is billed as a comfortable, usable GT car that’s as much at home in the millionaire districts of the world’s most expensive cities, as it is tearing down the autoroute towards the ultimate gin palace.

Thing is, we’re not convinced that the 812 Superfast is all the excessive GT cruiser it’s cracked up to be. Sure, it’s easy to drive, but what about that 789bhp 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12? What about the Ferrari Power Oversteer function, or Virtual Short Wheelbase 2.0? Surely they have more to do with winding country roads than big cities or long, straight motorways. So where exactly, does this Ferrari belong?

Watch as James Dennison heads out into the UK countryside to find out.
