The Ferrari 812 Competizione, a symbol of grand touring mastery with its V12 engine positioned just before the driver, operating the rear wheels, has been enhanced. Not just by anyone, but by the revered tuner, Novitec. Renowned for their artistry in auto modifications, they have redefined the true power and elegance of this exceptional machine.
Novitec has impressively escalated the vehicle's output, pushing it to a roaring 854 hp (637 kilowatts) and a torque of 524 pound-feet (711 Newton-meters). As a touch of opulence, they have incorporated a gold-plated exhaust system.
Furthermore, prospective buyers are presented with an option to integrate active sound management, giving them the autonomy over the auditory experience of this beast. Out of the box, the 812 Competizione boasts a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine.
It delivers an exhilarating 830 horsepower and a torque of 510 pound-feet. Remarkably, this car's peak power thrusts at 9,250 rpm, with the engine fervently revving up to 9,500 rpm. With such might, the coupe can seamlessly accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in a mere 2.85 seconds, reaching 124 mph in just 7.5 seconds.
It doesn't stop until it hits its top velocity of 211 mph.
Novitec Enhances 812 Competizione's Stance
To further augment the car's aesthetics and functionality, Novitec graced the modified 812 Competizione with 22-inch forged wheels from the esteemed Vossen.
For a more aggressive stance and better handling dynamics, revised springs reduce the ride height by 0.98 inches (25 millimeters). Additionally, a front lift system, practical yet sophisticated, has been added, elevating the nose by 1.575 inches (40 millimeters) to effortlessly navigate obstacles.
It's worth noting that both the Ferrari 812 Competizione and its sibling, the Aperta convertible, witnessed an overwhelming demand, selling out instantly upon unveiling. Ferrari produced only 999 units of the coupe and a limited 599 for the open-roof model.
Recently, the Ferrari Styling Center crafted an exclusive 812 Competizione for a charitable cause in New York City. Adorned in matte Giallo Tristrato yellow with intricate black details, its exterior resembles a car sketch.
The interior design resonates with this theme. While the proceeds are for charity, Ferrari remains tight-lipped about the specific beneficiary. Lastly, among the proud owners of this masterpiece is the Ferrari Formula One racer, Carlos Sainz Jr.
His unique model, procured through Ferrari's Tailor Made program, sports a dark silver satin-finished body, black wheels, and fiery red brake calipers. The interiors are adorned with carbon-fiber tread plates bearing "Smoother Operator" and carpets showcasing his iconic 55 racing number.
