The Ferrari 812 supercar comes to auction on 15 October as part of an evening to benefit Children Action — a Swiss charitable foundation that supports projects aimed at helping children in need, both in Switzerland and abroad
On the 15th October in Geneva, Christie’s will offer a one-of-a-kind 812 Superfast Ferrari, produced by Scuderia Ferrari and offered to benefit Children Action. Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800hp, the 812 Superfast is the benchmark for mid-front-engined sports cars, delivering the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive hallmark of Ferrari’s V12 heritage.
Scuderia Ferrari has chosen to present this iconic model in a unique configuration created in collaboration with the Tailor Made department, Ferrari’s exclusive personalisation programme. The car will come finished in Rosso F1, Ferrari’s signature Formula 1 red, with a tricolour strip inspired by the Italian flag and a white-backed race number painted on the bonnet recalling the SF71H, Ferrari’s 2018 race car.
The chosen race number is 1, to celebrate the fact that the Scuderia Ferrari has won the most number of Formula 1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championship titles (31) in the history of F1. The Scuderia Ferrari shields on the wings and carbon-fibre trim will complete its sporty exterior.
The unique interior configuration will feature leather racing seats with black technical SuperFabric inserts; a yellow Prancing Horse stitched on the headrests; yellow seatbelts and a yellow rev counter. Carbon-fibre trim and a tricolour detail painted on the central bridge complete the interior.
The car will be Ferrari Classice-certified and its provenance from the Tailor Made programme will be evidenced by the carbon-fibre logo on the sillkicks.
The winning bidder will receive the keys to the 812 Superfast in an exclusive ceremony inside the Monza circuit at the 2019 Italian Grand Prix, taking possession of the supercar in the presence of the whole Ferrari team. The V12’s engine will also come autographed by official Ferrari drivers.
