Ferrari lifts the veil of mystery surrounding its new supercar
…or, rather, lifts a corner of that veil. The speedster will celebrate its premiere at a special event in the coming fall, and in the meantime all we have is this teaser photo.
The company still keeps the name of the new car secret, only referring to it using the codename “F176”. Still, rumors insist that the car will be based on the 812 Superfast platform and called the 812 Monza.
The alleged Ferrari 812 Monza will inherit the main stylistic features from the Ferrari Rossa Concept, which debuted as early as 2000. It is being designed in Italian car tuning atelier Pininfarina, and, as a representative of the atelier pointed out, the team draws inspiration from the legendary 250 Tests Rossa Concept. The latter had prominent rollover bars and a low-profile windshield.
Any further details about the upcoming supercar are being meticulously guarded by Ferrari, but we still have a few reference points to base our predictions upon. For one, the 812 Superfast speedster comes equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 engine rated at 800 hp (600 kW) and a 7-speed DCT transmission. The vehicle hits 100 km/h (60 mph) in less than 3 seconds and ultimately climbs to 340 km/h (211 mph).
