Ferrari 812 Superfast debuts in Malaysia – RM1.58 mil

Naza Italia has launched the Ferrari 812 Superfast in Malaysia – the F12berlinetta and F12tdf replacement arrives here five months after making its official debut in Geneva. It’s priced at RM1,578,800, excluding duty and customisation options.

Styling changes to the exterior are led by a brand new bumper, which integrate the active brake duct intakes seen on the F12 near the honeycomb mesh grille, as well as full LED headlights. New heat extractors – which eliminates the need for the central extractor as seen on the F12’s hood – also make their way on.

Moving along, the bodywork also gets revisions, with more muscular wheelarches a new engine cover and a fresh double tail light assembly. Completing the transformation on the 1,525 kg offering is a new rear bumper.

The changes aren’t just limited to visuals. Aerodynamics on the new car, which features a 47:53 front/rear weight ratio – have been improved compared to the F12, with downforce increased by 10%.

The 812 Superfast is dressed in a new red shade called Rosso SettantAnni. Translated, it means “red 70” in English, essentially providing a direct nod to the automaker’s 70th anniversary.

Inside, the Superfast gets a newly-styled dashboard and air-conditioning vents as well as new seats that are designed to be sportier while providing better ergonomics. Other new bits include a multi-function steering wheel and a passenger display screen similar to that found in the GTC4Lusso.

The 812 Superfast is powered by a new 6.5 litre naturally-aspirated V12 offering 800 PS (789 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 718 Nm at 7,000 rpm, with 80% of the torque available from 3,500 rpm. In terms of overall numbers, that’s an improvement over the 770 hp and 705 Nm available from the 6.3 litre V12 unit on the F12tdf.

The mill is paired with a F1 DCT seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that is said offer shorter shifting times, and performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 2.9 seconds and a 340 km/h top speed.

Novelties include an electric power steering (the car is the first Ferrari to have it), Side Slip Control (SSC) 5, ESP 9.1 premium and the second iteration of the automaker’s Virtual Short Wheelbase (PCV) four-wheel steering assistance system that was first seen on the F12tdf.

      why give prices without duties? This is misleading. Because of people like this, even in mudah, now they are quoting car prices without duties.

      When you call, suddenly they give different price.

      So, with dutues, the car will be about RM6 million. So shy such prices exist in Malaysia

        Yeah, agree with you on this. They should have at least shown the price inclusive of duty, insurance and road tax.

        The RM1.58mil price tag would have easily cross the RM5mil mark once you add up everything. So yes, not showing the duty, road tax and insurance can be very misleading.

        Supercars aside, even the Korean, Japanese, Continental car dealers are doing the same thing. Luckily PaulTan.Org is not selling cars. Otherwise if report to KPDNKK, confirm kena hentam from left and right.

    To be honest, I don’t really think Ferrari should name this car ‘Superfast’. I know its indeed Superfast, but it sounds like Ferrari is bragging about how fast it is.

    Just my 2 cents though.

    The Ferrari 812 Superfast is the Lambo Aventador S’s arch nemesis. A duel that stretches back to Lambo Miura vs. Ferrari Daytona days, Mid-engined vs Front engined. The lasts of the pure non-hybrid hypercars.

    Naza Italia is telling us that this Ferrari 812 cost “only” RM1.58 million without all the adds on. If U are smart enough to earn the $$$, U must be smart enough to register it.

    Like someone here said, Langkawi is one of the way to register. If complain, don’t buy an expensive item like this. john famous quote – Tax the rich, so no problemo. he he he. Cheers…

    A lot of comments were made on the 1.5m price tag that could be misleading. Yes indeed it is! One look at the heading RM1.58 mil, I was like “what?! Cheaper than a recon 488?!” sekali read the details, EXCLUDING DUTY… It’s so damn annoying reading this.

    I mean well yes it might not be wrong technically but hey come on this is Malaysia and we know what kind of proper info should be given instead of prices w/o this and that! *Frust*

    The road tax alone costs almost RM18k. But does the RM1.58 million price tag includes service package?
