Just when you thought the Ferrari 812 Superfast couldn’t get any more desirable, Ferrari unveiled the 812 GTS back in 2019, a droptop variant of the grand tourer that, to our eyes, is the brand’s best-looking current production model.
Like its hardtop sibling, the 812 GTS is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 pumping out 789 hp at 8,500 rpm and 529 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque at 7,000 rpm. As you’d imagine, the GTS weighs a tad more than the standard model, so to ensure it is just as accelerative as the Superfast, Ferrari has shortened the car’s gear ratios, as Doug DeMuro mentions in his review below.
In typical DeMuro style, he highlights the many interesting quirks and features of the 812 GTS. Among its most intriguing and subtle features are two small L-shaped flaps on the upper corners of the windshield that help keep turbulence and aerodynamic noise in check.
U.S. pricing for the Ferrari 812 GTS starts at roughly $390,000, but the car tested by DeMuro was much more expensive, as it had a price of $518,766, with roughly $130,000 in options. These include a front radar with active cruise control ($4,843), a rear radar ($2,767), aluminum brake calipers ($1,519), and a plethora of carbon fiber options that include carbon inner door handles ($4,219) and carbon fiber door panels for a cool $7,593.
