Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Successor to the 812 Superfast?
It has not been 2 years since Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) introduced the 812 Superfast to succeed the F12 Berlinetta. And by all accounts, and it is a Supercar.
But eventually the iconic Maranello Outfit will replace it. And when it does, it could look something like this.
This Supercar is called the 8E8Hyperspeed, and it is the work of one Sang-Hyuk Ahn, a graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. who was kind enough to share his design with us. And so we are sharing it with you.
Though clearly stylized as cars often look at this early stage in design, the proportions look just right, and the design elements, I would say, look just where Ferrari should be headed next.
Look at the muscular haunches, the long hood and short deck, the contrasting silver roof, and the thin head and taillights. Very good work, if you ask me
Mr. Ahn says the car could use an electric powertrain, and the 812 Superfast’s successor could go hybrid. But to take the place of the Superfast, it will need a V12 plant, and a powerful one at that.
The current model’s displaces 6.5 liters and produces a massive 789 hp (588 kW) and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque, sending the exotic Supercar rocketing to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 secs on its way to a 211-mph (340-km/h) Top speed. And at 1:21.5, it will lap The Scuderia’s Fiorano test track next to the factory in Maranello almost a sec faster than the old F12 Berlinetta, and just half a sec behind the hardcore F12 TdF.
Those are big wheels to fill, and I do not doubt Maranello’s next front-engined V12 Supercar will raise the bar even further. I hope it looks this good when it debuts in the next few years.
