A coupe is as sexy as any vehicle can get, but a convertible is a pinnacle of awesome that everyone desires. Ferrari is out to fulfill our fantasies by offering an open-top version of the 812 Superfast. When the original came out, many buyers were wondering if the Italian marque will release another version. After two years of waiting, surprises us with the 812 GTS, another automotive masterpiece on four wheels.
Those who held back from purchasing the predecessor and patiently waited can finally claim their reward. This hard-top convertible not only allows you to cruise in the open air, but it lets you hear the majestic roar of the machine. Within the sleek frame of this supercar sits a 6.5-liter V12 engine that pushes your ride up to 211 mph. With 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque behind the wheel, it tackles a 0-62 mph sprint in less than three seconds.
The drivetrain setup of the 812 GTS includes a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The retractable roof takes 14 seconds to deploy at a speed of 28 mph and adds 165 pounds to its overall weight. Nevertheless, the prancing horse emblem promises exceptional performance on par with the coupe version.
According to Ferrari, the 812 GTS is currently the most powerful production convertible on the market. Moreover, the last time the company crafted a front-mounted V12 monster was around 50 years ago with the 1969 365 GTS4. It seems like a wonderful time to add a drop-top version to the coupe sitting in the garage right now. We have to yet to learn about the release date and price for this exciting supercar.
