Aesthetically, the Ferrari 812 Competizione adopts elements that give it a more aggressive appearance than the 812 Superfast and that are focused on maximizing the aerodynamics and lightness, the other great factors apart from the engine in which the Italians have put all their care.

At the rear, the most significant change is the replacement of the rear window with a aluminum foil equipped with a vortex generator, which contributes to improving downforce by 40%. The more pronounced spoiler and the more imposing rear diffuser with the redesigned and relocated exhausts are also not by any means unnoticed.

Under the hood, the 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A equip a V12 that delivers a whopping 830 hp at 9,500 rpm and 692 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm, making it the most powerful and fastest revving Ferrari street engine in history. For reference, the standard 812 delivers 800 hp at 8,500 rpm, and is without a doubt one of the best engines ever installed in a production car.

To achieve this, several areas of the engine have been redesigned, the fluid dynamics of its intake systems have been optimized and combustion and internal friction have been reduced, summarizes Ferrari.

The engine of the 812 Competizione and 812 Competizione A is associated with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox that has been optimized taking advantage of the experience in Formula 1, to reduce changeover times by 5% and “take the performance of this solution to the extreme, ensuring an unprecedented sensation of change for a V12”, asserts the brand.

In the case of the Targa, the specifications have not yet transcended, although its performance is expected to be somewhat less radical as a result of the extra weight of the hood.
