A Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) prototipo 812F has been caught on video around the Fiorano test track, giving us a chance to hear what’s going on underneath the camo skin.
YouTube user Varryx got the footage, doing us the favor of including a regular 812 lapping the circuit for comparison. See the video below.
The differences are clear. The 812 is already praised for its super exhaust note. The prototipo, which looks to have put on a more finished rear valance, snarls and sounds angrier on the flyby.
I am not sure what it is, but perusing Ferrari Chat forums reveals members having a conversation about an “812 VS” for nearly 2 yrs now.
VS is Italian for Versione Speciale, the thrust here being a track-focused and lighter 812.
The Speciale cars began with the 1-off Y 1955 375 MM Berlinetta Speciale — “MM” representing Mille Miglia.
This is speculation until Ferrari reveals the real thing.
The 812 Superfast is 1 of the last of its kind and will be a high-priced Limited Edition priced at $750,000 or more and approaching $1-M for Tailor Made cars.
Prospective launch date is still in Y 2020.
Ferrari had planned the debut the car at the Geneva Motor Show. As of now, suspicions have settled on Ferrari showing an SF90 Spider in September, and this hardcore 812 VS in October or November.
We’re also waiting on the mid-engined hybrid Supercar spotted all over Maranello lately, so it could be a very special year for Prancing Horses.
Our overall technical outlook is Bullish in here, as all Key indicators are Bullish to Very Bullish as it approaches its all time highs at 179.21 marked on 18 February 2020.
Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) finished Thursday at 168.58, -1.23 in NY.
The Maranello Outfit’s shares were raised to Buy from Hold at HSBC.
Ferrari will continue to create value in the long term. Ferrari is a quality 1st long term luxury products investment, and I have called it at it at 200+/share long term, adjusting it to 200/share short term (after the virus) and siding with BAML to 230 long term for now. The stock is now considered defensive in the sector.
Have a healthy weekend, Keep the Faith!
