In 1969 Ferrari launched the 365 GTS4 – also known as the Daytona Spider, but also the last spider in the Ferrari range to sport a front-mounted V-12 engine. Now, exactly 50 years later, the V-12 powered spider returns with the launch of the Ferrari 812 GTS.

As it name suggest, the 812 GTS is the spider version of the 812 Superfast from which it took of course the V-12 engine. Just like in the coupe, the V-12 delivers a total of 800 horsepower and 529 pound-feet of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in less than 3 seconds and top speed goes up to 340 km/h (211 mph).

Being based on the 812 Superfast, it is very easy to recognize its design, however, when looked from the side you will also notice that the 812 GTS also looks a little bit like the 365 GTB4 (Daytona) of 1968: the two-box design with the high tail.

When compared with the coupe version, the spider has the entire roof redesigned in order to offer the car a new blend of sleekness and balance. The buttresses were designed to visually embody a sense of forward thrust and lend the side windows a signature look that would set the spider apart from the berlinetta. When the top is dropped, the roof panels disappear beneath the aforementioned tonneau cover. The 812 GTS sits on new, highly sculptural and model-specific multi-spoke forged wheels, offered in three different designs: diamond-finish, liquid silver and Grigio Scuro.

The Ferrari 812 GTS is offered with the following high performance driver assistance features:

  • Ferrari Peak Performance (FPP): when cornering, the steering wheel torque will provide the driver with an indication that the car is getting closer to its limit of grip, helping the control of that dynamic state:
  • Ferrari Power Oversteer (FPO) – in the case of oversteer, most frequently induced while powering out of corners, the steering wheel torque will give the driver feedback to give steering wheel inputs that are coherent with realigning the car correctly
  • Optimized calibration of the car’s magnetorheological dampers mean its elastic set-up is the same as the berlinetta version’s despite the 75kg increase in weight caused by strengthening work on the chassis.
