The absence of a fixed roof, however, does mean Ferrari has had to tweak both the car’s chassis and its aerodynamic package. The 812 GTS’s magnetorheological dampers have been ‘optimised’ to compensate for a 75kg increase in weight, so the GTS should, according to Ferrari, handle just as well as the Superfast. As for aero, the rear end has had to be redesigned to make room for the roof, and as a result the rear wheel arch by-pass duct has been axed, with lost downforce has been compensated for by a redesigned rear diffuser.
The full price and specification will be revealed soon, but expect to pay a pretty penny. Options for the standard 812 include a £960 Alcantara boot lining, £4,320 carbon door panels and £5,668 forged wheels. Considering the standard 812 will set you back £262,963, expect the GTS, with a few options, to set you back something north of £300,000.
