In commemoration of its 70th anniversary, Ferrari has announced that the world premiere for the 812 Superfast is set for next month at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Billed as the fastest production vehicle in its history, the mid-front-engine 812 Superfast is an updated version of the F12 Berlinetta equipped with a new 789 hp 6.5-liter V12 that can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 211 mph.

Among the notable changes from the F12, the 812 Superfast includes electric power steering and an upgraded dual-clutch gearbox that provides shorter shifting times and increased throttle response.

On the outside, LED headlights are integrated into the design of the air intakes to provide for a more aggressive stance, while four round tail-lights replace the twin circular lamps found in the F12. Ferrari has also refined the aerodynamics, adding active flaps at the front of the underbody, while the rear flank features a by-pass to increase downforce.

Inside, the 812 Superfast is said to feature sportier, ergonomic seats as well as a new steering wheel and instrument cluster.

Details on pricing and availability are expected to be announced at the show.
