Which 812 Superfast does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
There are cars beyond the reach of most of us — cars that are made from the finest materials, that produce unimaginable levels of performance, or both. They typically carry a price tag exceeding the cost of your average house. The Ferrari 812 Superfast is one of those cars, and if you're fortunate enough to be in the market for one, you're certainly in for a treat.
Ferrari has long been in the business of producing grand-touring cars, and the 812 Superfast is its newest and most technologically advanced offering. Making 789 horsepower from a 6.5-liter V12 engine, it's also unbelievably fast. And thanks to heady amounts of driver assistance technology, it's not a complete brute, allowing the driver to exploit its considerable limits all the while transporting a custom set of golf clubs in the trunk.
But the price to fly in this rarefied air is knocking on $350K, and prospective buyers have quite a few alternatives, most at a lower price, to the 812 Superfast. Porsche would be happy to sell you a GT2 RS for about $100,000 less. And if your checkbook is ready to go, Bentley, McLaren and especially Lamborghini would like a word with you. Then again, if you're in the market for an 812 Superfast, you might own at least one of those cars already.
Ferrari 812 Superfast models
The 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast is a rear-wheel-drive, two-passenger exotic coupe powered by a front-mounted 6.5-liter V12 engine making 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft. The only transmission available is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
As befitting a car with a starting price near $350,000, the Ferrari 812 Superfast comes impeccably trimmed with high-quality leather, carbon fiber, aluminum and faux suede. Performance hardware is equally impressive, and along with the monstrous 12-cylinder engine comes an adaptive suspension, four-wheel steering and an electronically controlled rear differential. Among the nearly inexhaustible list of options are more ordinary ones such as an upgraded 1,500-watt JBL Professional audio system, Apple CarPlay, a performance telemetry system, a nose-mounted camera, more aggressive seats with additional power adjustment (eight-way power seats are standard), and a myriad of wheel designs. Ferrari provides prospective buyers with a personal concierge to navigate all of the available options.

Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. the competition
Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. Porsche 911
With 690 hp, the GT2 RS pushes the 911's architecture to the limit but still falls about 100 hp short of the Ferrari. But that's not to say the GT2 RS is lacking for speed. Indeed, it might be a bit too hardcore for those buyers who might want to drive cross country. But like Ferrari, Porsche treats its buyers to a nearly endless list of customization options.
Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. Aston Martin DB11
Long ago Aston Martin was the main rival to Ferrari, offering equal measures of bespoke luxury, style and performance. The DB11 continues that fight, offering fresh but traditional styling, a hand-built interior, and a lusty V12 engine good for 503 hp. But what the DB11 has in comfort over the Ferrari, it loses in outright speed and performance.
Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. McLaren 720S Spider
McLaren might not have a storied history of building road cars, but it has been Ferrari's rival on the racetrack since the 1960s. The 720S represents McLaren's most complete and well-balanced supercar, combining excellent visibility and good ergonomics with nearly insane levels of performance. But if grand touring is a priority, the 720S lacks the storage capacity of the Ferrari.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
