At the heart of every Ferrari is a longing for the track — the place where every car to wear the Prancing Horse is conceived. The 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A take the 812 Superfast and rework the 6.5-liter V12 to produce nearly 30 more horsepower and raise the rev limit to a sky-high 9,500 RPM. This is possible thanks to lighter titanium con rods, a rebalanced crank, and camshaft revisions derived from Ferrari’s F1 program. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission delivers 5% faster shift times, give the 812 Competizione a 0-62 time of 2.89 seconds. A revised aero package increases downforce while reducing drag, although the Competizione A does away with the top altogether. Production will be very limited, with both models going to the most exclusive of Ferrari’s clientele.
