One-Of-A-Kind Ferrari 812 Superfast Is A Carbon-Fiber Masterpiece

Video / Comments

The tuner has made the V12-engined GT even more special.

Like almost everything else that comes out of Maranello, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is an exceptional high-performance exotic but, with the engine mounted in front, it's a lot more practical than similarly quick mid-engine Ferraris. The 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine develops an insane 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque, with the 0-62 mph sprint taking under three seconds.

With a spec sheet like that, you wouldn't think the 812 needed any improvement, but Novitec disagrees and has come up with its own version of the 812 with a fully exposed carbon body. Novitec's previous exploits with Ferrari included a tune of the F8 Tributo that raised that car's power output to 787 hp.

In a new video, Novitec delves into what makes the 812 Superfast so special, specifically, by salivating over Novitec's own N-Largo edition of the car. These changes include a modified exhaust system, a new rear wing, and larger wheels. As fantastic as that package is, it's got nothing on the tuner's new N-Largo Carbon Edition "One of One", a full carbon version that the company just announced, which is presented near the end of the 19-minute clip.

Dubbed a one-off, Novitec's carbon-fiber-bodied 812 looks absolutely menacing with its exposed weave. Virtually everything, from the doors to the mirrors to the hood, is fashioned from the exotic material. The wheels have also been darkened, with the only splashes of color being the yellow brake calipers and yellow Ferrari badges. Without a doubt, it boosts Novitec's position as one of the best supercar tuners in the world.

Compared to the 812's less extreme N-Largo kit which goes for around €150,000 (over $175,000 at current exchange rates), the full carbon version adds another €100,000 on top of that, realizing a total price of around $293,000. Note that these are the kit prices only and excludes the value of the stock 812, which begins at over $300,000. That's a huge outlay, but then, again, it did take Novitec an extra 700 hours to build this carbon beauty compared with the more basic N-Largo version.

Contrasting with the dark exterior is a red cabin; the door panels, dashboard, seats, and even the pillars are all finished in red. It's a stunning cockpit, but Novitec's magnificent fully exposed carbon body is what makes an already special car even better.
