Design inspiration from the 60s
The successor to the F12 will be presented at the Geneva Auto Show 2017 (March 9-19). Muscular wheel arches and four round rear lights are reminiscent of the famous Ferrari 365 GTB4 from 1969. On the whole, the 812 is strongly oriented to its predecessor, but it is much fresher and more modern. This is complemented by an active aerodynamics, which should make the car more controllable, especially when driving with a sporty drive. For the presentation in Geneva Ferrari has wrapped the 812 in a new color for the 70th birthday: “Rosso Settanta”.
