Ferrari is auctioning off the 812 Superfast scale model which used for wind-tunnel testing. If you’re a Ferrari collector this certainly deserves to be in your prized collection, although you wouldn’t be able to drive it.
It built to 1:2 scale of the real 812 Superfast and was hand-made out of carbon fiber bodywork and other composite materials. It is quite significant since the 812’s aerodynamics were developed using this scale model.
Now, Ferrari hasn’t announced the price of the 812 Superfast in the US however it is expected to be priced around $320,000. So, how much do you think this carbon fiber mock up costs? Well, the guide price for this auction is set at €280,000- 320,000 or about $385,000!
While the real thing has stonking-grade 6.5-liter V12 engine which puts out 800 hp and 530 lb-ft, this has none of that. Also, it won’t do 0-60 mph in 2.9 sec, if you know what I mean.
