The 812 Superfast’s aerodynamic design is part of Ferrari’s ongoing commitment to continually improving performance with each new model, both in terms of speed and vehicle dynamics for a more exhilarating driving experience. The development guidelines aimed to achieve exceptionally high aerodynamic efficiency figures through improving of the downforce that influences a car’s stability without increasing drag.

This original 812 Superfast wind tunnel model is handmade with carbon fibre and other prototypal material. This is the original 1:2 scale aerodynamic model used during the different stages of development, including to test and improve the computational fluid dynamics results inside the wind tunnel. This model also maintains its original modularity used to optimize the aerodynamics of different areas of the Superfast.

• 232,85 cm × 98,55 cm × 63,8 cm
• Circa 200 kg

Il design aerodinamico della 812 Superfast è frutto del continuo impegno di Ferrari per migliorare le prestazioni, modello dopo modello, sia in termini di velocità che di comportamento dinamico delle sue vetture. Per un'esperienza di guida sempre più emozionante. Per questo uno dei filoni di ricerca è sempre stato quello dell'efficenza aerodinamica, fattore importante per incrementare la portanza della vettura, e quindi la stabilità, senza aumentare la resistenza all'avanzamento.

Questo modello originale di 812 Superfast usato nella galleria del vento è stato lavorato a mano in fibra di carbonio e altri materiali impiegati nei prototipi. La carrozzeria in scala 1:2 è stata utilizzata durante le diverse fasi di sviluppo dell'auto, anche per testare e migliorare le prestazioni all'interno della galleria del vento. Il modello mantiene le modifiche apportate in più punti per ottimizzare l'aerodinamica della Superfast.
