Ferrari is reportedly planning to launch a convertible version of the 812 Superfast sometime in September, according to the chatter going on in the Ferrari Chat forum.
The “812 Superfast Spider” is said to feature a folding hardtop similar to the one used on the 488 Spider. Mechanically, it’ll use the same powertrain as the coupe, featuring a 6.5 litre naturally-aspirated V12 that churns out 789 hp (800 PS) and 718 Nm of torque, paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The model is said to be a normal, series production model, and won’t be built in limited numbers. Prior to this, one of Ferrari’s flagship V12 cars that was made into a convertible was the 10-unit F60 America that is based on the F12berlinetta.
The 599 that came before the F12berlinetta also had an open-top version called the SA Aperta, which was limited to 80 units, as a tribute to design house Pininfarina upon its 80th anniversary, and to founder Sergio Pininfarina and son Andrea.
For now, Ferrari has yet to reveal anything of the sort, but users in the forum claim to have received VIP invitations with differing dates; some being September 2, while others say it’s on September 5 and 7.
