An exceptional example of Ferrari 812 Superfast has just been delivered to a customer in London. The new car is wearing a custom-ordered livery inspired by the Ferrari 250 SWB raced by motorsport legend Sir Stirling Moss.
812 Superfast currently is the strongest performing road-going model with a 789-hp V12 engine that complete 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 340km/h. This particular example ordered through the marque’s Tailor Made division has a matt Blu Scozia Opaco paintwork with white stripe on the bonnet and a white roundel on top of it. An additional white roundel can be found also on each door. The origin of this blue and white race car is the Rob Walker 250 SWB Berlinetta Competizione, which Sir Stirling drove to triumph at Goodwood, Nassau, Brands Hatch and Silverstone during the early 1960s.
“Ferrari has such an incredible history, both on the road and on the track, so we applaud this customer’s choice in evoking an iconic livery for his 812 Superfast,” said Ken Choo, CEO of the dealer of this car, H.R. Owen. “It’s fitting that this design was first seen on a V12 berlinetta Ferrari in the early ‘60s and here – more than 55 years later – we see it on a car that can trace its V12 lineage right back to the 250 SWB and beyond.”
