Here's everything we know about this new arrival from Ferrari, known under the code name F167which promises to redefine the standards of the V12-powered supercar.

A V12 will always be at the heart of the F167The Ferrari 812 Superfast, the emblematic F140, but with significant improvements. The Ferrari 812 Superfast, with its 800 hp, will be surpassed by its replacement, whose power will exceed this already impressive mark. Indeed, rumors indicate that the the F167 could reach 10,000 rpm.

Although some media have raised the possibility of hybridization, the example of the Purosangue, which retains a V12 without electric assistance, leaves us in doubt. So it would seem that Ferrari favors the purity of a naturally-aspirated V12 for this new model.

  1. It's a good thing Ferrari and Lamborghini are still around, even if the latter is under German guardianship for "made in Italy" automobiles...otherwise it would be a complete vacuum.

    • Imagine if Ferrari had stayed with FCA, and today with Stellantis... We'd have a 312 Crossfast: 3 for the number of cylinders, 12 for 1200cm², Crossfast for the crossover silhouette.

      • Your comment made me laugh. But Ferrari is in a class of its own, and has figured out how to please its customers.

  2. If Ferrari were now part of the Stellantis group, the French would end up taking over Ferrari just as they did Bugatti: a simple identity card for Ettore Bugatti's son... and the deal is in the bag... the French will never have a yper car that is truly theirs...

  3. but is there really an announcement to come?
    the miami gp is not on may 2 but on may 3, and that's only the beginning of the wk the grand prix is on may 5

    • I'm told "8pm Miami time" so that would make it Friday 2am in France. I imagine that Ferrari customers will see it before the presentation by press release.
