The car you're looking at in the gallery above may well represent the end of a 70-year era at Ferrari. It's called the 812 Superfast, and it's almost certainly going to be the last Ferrari powered by just a naturally aspirated engine.

Ferrari plans to reveal the 812 Superfast at next month's Geneva International Motor Show, but it has revealed some of the car's specs a little early. Under that long, vented hood is a 6.5L V12 engine that makes 788hp (588kW, or 800 metric horsepower) at a showy 8,500rpm. Peak torque is 530lb-ft (718Nm) at 7,000rpm, and Ferrari says that 80 percent of that will be available from 3,500rpm.

That should make the 812 Superfast, well, super fast—Ferrari describing the car as "the most powerful and fastest Ferrari in the marque’s history." That fact presumably ignores the limited-run 949hp (707kW) ThethetheFerrari hybrid hypercar.

The 812 Superfast will also be the first Ferrari road car to feature electromechanical power steering and a host of driver aids that should flatter even drivers with mediocre talents behind the wheel.

Last year, Ferrari told investors and the press that it is developing a common hybrid architecture for its vehicles and that the successor to the front-engined V12 supercar—due in 2020—will be a hybrid. And naturally aspirated engines have been on their way out for some time at Ferrari; the V8s that power the 488 GTE and California T both use forced induction. It's possible we could still see naturally aspirated engines under the hood of one of Maranello's finest in the future, but if we do it'll be coupled with a hybrid system that should allow for up to 30 miles' range on electric power alone.

Prettiest (Only) Ferrari coupe since the 550/575. I really like it. If this is the last NA Ferrari, they should offer a 6/7 speed manual.

I think it looks good, better than the F12 but not as good as the TDF.

It's prettier than the older models, but next to an aventador SV it looks like a Hyundai........

Not really. It looks badass without "trying too hard"

I actually think Ferrari should try harder, you can't really rest on your laurels forever.

They are falling behind at a fast pace, performance wise and design wise.

This car is pretty not spectacular, the SV for argument sake even though you might not agree is jaw dropping.

I don't want to pay a lot of money for regular looking. I want them to try harder so I can get something over the top looking....

Like with most new Ferraris as soon as I see live shots I think it looks like a mess, the yellow car just looks wrong.

I have to agree, looks very slab sided and fat. I withdraw my like of it.

Looking at the rear shots I think the Ferrari designers drew inspiration from nature LOL

Yeah, not flattering at all. plus, the engine is in the wrong place. I am sure it is fast though. I just wish aventador can have the same performance. Maybe the aventador S.

Horrible icon_oak.gif

Front is SSDD from Ferrari and the rest looks like a test mule with the disguise panels still on it. Kit car even from some angles.

Good things it's fast. No one will see how horrible it is going by icon_mrgreen.gif

Such an ugly car.

But, if you're a brand loyalist....

I'd rather get a 575 lol
