Drivetrain, chassis, headlights and windshield: that’s all the designers kept from the Ferrari 812 Superfast when they created the manufactory’s latest, completely unique type, the Ferrari Omologata, at the request of a customer.
It took two years from the collection of inspiration to the handing over of the key. It would be awkward to take all the visual changes in turn. The nose, bonnet, and sidewalls were ironed, modifying the location, shape, and proportion of the air exchange openings; the rear bumper and luminaire are new, as well as the full tail design, which ends in an integrated spoiler.
The cover plate, which is stretched in place at the rear windscreen and is divided by horizontal slots, is also striking. Following careful modifications, the modern lines have been filled with an atmosphere and style reminiscent of Ferrari’s heroic era, the end result being an elusively timeless car that exists somewhere between the 812 Superfast and the 250 GTO.
Beneath the uniquely blended red aluminum body is an interior with blue leather / fabric upholstery – a contrast that would hardly have come to Maranello designers on their own. The metal surfaces on the dashboard have been crunchy, the door handles and the floor console switch panel are covered in hammered metal – both solutions wink back to the hand-crafted details of contemporary Ferraris.
Even if it quotes the past in its style, the Omologata is completely modern in its technical content, at least we assume that the factory information does not write a word about it. In this case, this means the parameters of the Ferrari 812 Superfast: The 6.5-liter V12 engine has a maximum output of 800 horsepower at 8,500 rpm; the torque peak is 718 Nm at 7000 / min. The motor controls at 8900 rpm.
The transmission is a seven-speed dual-clutch unit. The base weighs 812 kg at 1630 kg, 53 percent of which goes to the rear axle. Its wheels are 20 inches and its brakes are huge (398 discs at the front and 360 mm at the rear.) The 812 Superfast – and presumably the Ferrari Omologata – accelerates to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 340 km / h; the car stops at 32 meters from 100 km / h.
