This is the Ferrari 812 Superfast, the new Super GT car from Ferrari and the replacement for the F12.

The headlines? Well, that it has 800hp (789bhp) is the biggie, but there's vastly more to this new V12 coupe than just a power increase. It also gets active rear steering, electrically assisted power steering (a first for Ferrari) and latest generation side slip control.

We get behind the wheel of the 812 Superfast, both at Ferrari's Fiorano test track and on the road in the hills around Maranello.
