The 812 Competizione A, a spectacular limited-series with Targa top, is an homage to the Prancing Horse’s glorious open-top tradition. The car encapsulates and epitomises the company’s 70-plus years of experience on the world’s circuits, drawing on its thoroughbred sports car DNA to deliver a perfect marriage of performance, form and functionality. Aimed at Ferrari’s most passionate collectors and connoisseurs, it features numerous uncompromising engineering solutions to guarantee peerless driving pleasure.
Highlights – and there are many – include a V12 with the both the highest output of any Ferrari road-car engine, together with the highest rev limit of any road-going model from the Prancing Horse. The figures of 830cv and 9,500rpm from the 6.5-litre V12 are nothing short of remarkable, but alongside the intense power is incredible response and an inimitable soundtrack.
To achieve such heights the naturally-aspirated 830cv engine has been significantly re-engineered and includes titanium con-rods, a lighter crankshaft, and a new cam system derived from Ferrari’s F1 experience.
The brutal power unleashed by the powertrain is paired with new vehicle dynamics controls to ensure that the performance can be fully exploited and to guarantee maximum fun behind the wheel. Most distinctive of these solutions is the adoption of independent steering on all four wheels. This enhances the feeling of agility and precision when cornering as well as providing unparalleled responsiveness. Another noteworthy achievement is the development work undertaken to reduce the car’s overall weight, particularly the extensive use of carbon fibre. Lastly, the new model premieres version 7.0 of the renowned Side Slip Control vehicle dynamic system.
Particular attention was paid to making the car as light as possible. Carbon-fibre was used extensively on the exterior. The powertrain contributions to weight reduction came from the use of titanium con-rods coupled with a lighter crankshaft and a 12V lithium-ion battery. Great attention was also paid to the design of the cockpit with the extensive use of carbon-fibre trim, lightweight technical fabrics and a reduction in soundproofing.
The interior architecture very much reflects that of the 812 Superfast, retaining the main dash and door panel interfaces and volumes, including the signature diapason motif. The new door panel has been redesigned to reduce weight and, combined with the introduction of the H-gate theme on the tunnel, this lends the cockpit a sportier, more modern edge that reflects the car’s racing spirit.
