The F12 Berlinetta was a bit tricky to drive. With the new 812 Superfast, Ferrari wanted to make the 800 hp more accessible and manageable. To achieve this, one key area they focused on was traction.
The traction control system on the 812 Superfast has to deal with 790 hp and with 530 lb-ft of torque going through the drivetrain, the rear tires have their work cut out. But somehow, Ferrari engineers have been calibrate the traction control system such that it accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 sec.
Here’s quick a demonstration of the Ferrari 812 Superfast launch control system.
