The V12 masterpiece that is the 812 Superfast now has a convertible brother, the 812 GTS. The drop-top 812 GTS isn’t just the Superfast with a folding roof. The rear diffuser has been redesigned in order for the GTS to match the aerodynamic performance of the Superfast. Cues have also been taken from the LaFerrari Aperta to minimise turbulence and noise inside the cabin at higher speeds. The all-important window that can be open and closed behind the rear seats allow for the beautiful V12 exhaust note to be fully appreciated when the weather doesn’t quite warrant the roof down. The roof folds up or down in only 14 seconds in an elegant, theatrical manor at speeds below 30mph.
Despite being the convertible variant, the 812 GTS can accelerate from 0-62mph in “under 3 seconds” as stated by Ferrari. The GTS will carry on down the road to 211 mph, on par with the 812 Superfast. At everypress of your right foot, the naturally-aspirated work of art that sits in front of you eagerly delivers power to the rear wheels, with traction being managed by the clever onboard computers.
With increasingly strict emissions regulations and fuel economy targets for manufacturers, could we be set to lose the naturally aspirated V12 and with it some of the Ferrari magic in the next generation of the Berlinetta. Part of the essence of any true Ferrari is the noise and with the V12 now revving out to nearly 9,000rpm, the way this car howls is nothing short of spectacular, demanding your attention. The 812 GTS presents itself as one of the greatest modern front-engined supercars and with the retractable roof, one of the finest and most enjoyable convertibles on the current market.
