The handsome 812 Superfast receives a tasteful cabin upgrade from the Polish aftermarket company

LISTEN 03:54

The curves on the Ferrari 812 Superfast can make any car enthusiast drool. The chiseled body with the cuts and creases in the perfect places make this one of the better-looking supercars you can see on the road today. The company is even coming up with a convertible version of the 812 this year, which will be the first time in over five decades that you can buy a new V-12 convertible from the brand.

Polish aftermarket company, Carlex Design, recently laid its hand on this beauty to give it a unique twist. Since the 812 Superfast is a looker anyway, Carlex did the smart thing to not mess around with the exterior, and instead, has tastefully designed the cabin to perfection.

The Custom Interior Looks Exquisite

As a successor to the F12 Berlinetta, the 812 Superfast had a lot to live up to, both in terms of looks and performance. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Italian automaker got it all right. While there’s really not much one can do to make the exterior look any better, the interior can be tweaked around a little. An owner of the 812 Superfast decided to commission Carlex Design to come up with something tastefully unique and the result is quite impressive.

The seats and doors have been reupholstered in black and yellow shades with a lot of detailing on them. The yellow-hue elements on the center console and the seatbelts make things even better. Even the headliner and the dash benefit from this color combination. You can also spot several carbon fiber and Alcantara inserts all around the cabin to offer rather luxurious vibes. The highlight, for me, is the Ferrari logo embroidered on the headliner with white contrast stitching all around it.

Are There Any Changes To The Engine?

There are no changes made to the powertrain.

The 812 Superfast is powered by a 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated V-12 engine that dishes out 789 horses and 530 pound-feet of twist.

Power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The car revs up to 8,500 rpm and sprints to 62 mph from rest in just 2.9 seconds. The top speed is rated at 211 mph.

Ferrari announced a new 812 special-edition recently and it will debut on May 5, 2021. It comes with a whole lot of changes, primarily pertaining to aerodynamics and performance. This is how it’s different from the standard 812 Superfast:

  • Features the same mill, but makes 830 horsepower
  • Redesigned engine parts
  • Revs up to 9,500 rpm, which is the highest for any Ferrari to date
  • To come with a four-wheel independent steering setup
  • Marks the debut of the 7.0 version of the Side Slip Control vehicle dynamics system
  • Aero fins on the bumper, air vents behind the rear wheels
  • Vortex generators and aluminum panel in place of the rear windshield
  • Diffuser with carbon fiber elements and rectangular exhaust pipes
  • It will be lighter than the 812 Superfast which weighs 3,594 pounds

Final Thoughts

Carlex Design is known to come up with sweet custom designs that aren’t very tame, but aren’t too radical like Mansory builds either. This 812 Superfast’s impressive cabin upgrade isn’t surprising because the company has done a decent job on products from different segments in the past, like the Ford Ranger, the Land Rover Defender, the Mercedes-AMG G63, and even the super-flop Mercedes X-Class pickup truck.

The aftermarket company hasn’t listed the price of this upgrade considering it is a custom build, but you can get in touch with the company should you have any requirement, or just plain curiosity.
