Should you buy a Ferrari 812 Superfast?

The Ferrari 812 Superfast is marketed as a usable Grand Tourer, one designed for schlepping up and down motorways and A-roads on the way to luxurious holiday destinations. Indeed, the manufacturer’s own research suggests that the average buyer is far more likely to use a car like the 812 Superfast on a daily basis than they were, say, 10 years prior.

Ferrari could have made just a few changes to the outgoing F12 model and still be met with enthusiasm but the 812 Superfast is packed with improvements and innovations, showing that the famous marque has put significant effort into this model and moved it forwards in a number of significant areas.

Because of this, you might expect this car to be a softened off, more sedate imagining of the famous prancing horse badge. Something to make you feel at ease while driving it quickly, perhaps. In reality, however, the 812 Superfast is anything but.

Expensive to buy and inevitably expensive to run, the 812 Superfast is nonetheless a spectacular machine without peer, and is unlikely to leave a lucky buyer anything other than completely thrilled.
