Ferrari’s Fastest V12 Production Car Ever: The 812 Superfast

While the 812 Superfast is no longer the fastest production Ferrari ever, having been supplanted by the 950 horsepower electric-hybrid twin-turbo V8 SF90, it still holds the title of the fastest V12 production car Ferrari has ever built. While that may seem like a subtle distinction, I can assure you it is not. As driving exhilaration goes, you simply cannot discount the impact the auditory experience has on the driver, passenger, and lookers-on. Pupils dilate. Adrenaline increases. Heads turn.


Ford and Ferrari are rivals on the racetrack, but both companies exemplify the amazing impact when you unleash the accelerating power of alignment. The new movie, FORD v FERRARI, chronicles the true story of how American car designer Carroll Shelby built a revolutionary race car for Ford to challenge Enzo Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Alan Mulally was the CEO of Ford (NYSE: F) from September 2006 to June 2014. During his tenure, Mulally led a highly successful alignment initiative called ONE FORD. Mulally’s turnaround of Ford is now legendary. Business “Hall of Fame” legendary. The ONE FORD plan had several components that were so simple that Mulally had them printed on the back of business cards he would hand out. ONE team. ONE plan. ONE goal.
