New Ferrari 812 GTS: A V12 Spider Worthy Of GTS

50 years after the last front-engine V12 Spider, Ferrari launches the fabulous Ferrari 812 812 GTS.

It almost does not seem possible but the last time Ferrari manufactured a front-engine V12 Spider was way back in 1969. The car was the incredibly famous and desirable Ferrari 365 GTS4, better known as the Daytona Spider. The new 2020 Ferrari 812 GTS Spider will surely go down in history as one of the great V12 Ferraris.

While the 1969 Daytona Spider was the last “mass-produced” V12 Spider at Ferrari, a few limited edition cars were built, namely the the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina, the 2005 Superamerica, the 2010 SA Aperta and the extremely rare 2014 F60 America of which just 10 were built.

The Ferrari 812 GTS Spider is based on the 812 Superfast Coupe and thus is powered by the same 6.5-litre V12 capable of 800-horsepower and 530 lb.-ft. of torque, 80% of which is available as of 3,500 rpm. This kind of power will shoot the GTS Spider to 100 km/h in under 3 seconds with a top speed of over 340 km/h.

The power-retractable hard-top folds away in 14 seconds. The mechanism itself and the structural reinforcements add 75 kg to the Berlinetta’s weight for a total of 1,600 kg. Aesthetically, the Ferrari 812 GTS Spider is devastatingly beautiful. As for pricing, what difference does it make? If you must ask, it’ll be well over $500,000 CDN.

Not to be a downer but this could possibly be the last V12 from Ferrari, so let’s enjoy it while we can.
