Because the Ferrari 812 Superfast is considered to be the most powerful Ferrari ever built, it is but natural to look around to see what the competition is like. You won’t be disappointed, if you choose the Lamborghini Aventador S as the nearest rival!
The Ferrari 812 Superfast
The Ferrari 812 Superfast has the same 6.5-liter V12 engine as the Lamborghini Avenador. The engine delivers high torque at lower speeds making cruising along slowly a comfortable experience. The Electric Power Steering enhances the experience by adding easy maneuverability to the equation.
Other Specs: With an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/hour in 2.9 secs, the Ferrari 812 Superfast has clocked a maximum speed of over 340 km/hour.
The Lamborghini Aventador S
Keeping pace with the classic Lamborghini innovation, this car has various modes of driving, and the highlight of this feature is the EGO driving mode, designed to boost your ego! The driving modes include ‘Strada’ for daily use and ‘Sport and Corsa’ for track driving. With the EGO driving mode, you can quickly toggle between different driving modes by merely changing the traction and steering.
Unlike the soft curves of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, the Lamborghini Aventador S is an angular beauty, perhaps in a more masculine way, some may feel. The owners of this beast would typically be those who enjoy being the focus of attention, in line its slogan, “Dare your Ego.”
The main features that differentiate the Lamborghini Aventador S from the Ferrari 812 Superfast are the extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum. Lighter materials make it considerably lighter than its Ferrari rival, despite being 400 millimeters longer.
The engineers have tackled the considerable reduction of weight in the Lamborghini Aventador S by adding a front splitter and a black diffuser to the rear to decrease the downforce. The result is improved aerodynamics with a reduction in downforce by more than 50%
Other Specs: The Lamborghini Aventador S has a top speed of 350 km/hour and clocked 0 to 100 km/hour in 2.9 seconds (the same as the Ferrari 812 Superfast).
The Final Verdict
Regarding features, each model has its own suite to offer. However, in a match of brawn against brain at a Swedish airfield in September last year, the Ferrari 812 Superfast reigned supreme over the Lamborghini Aventador S.
Other than battling it out on a test track, it boils down to personal preference if it comes to choosing between these two models of Ferrari and Lamborghini.
