My First Drive in the New Ferrari 812 GTS!

This is the brand new Ferrari 812 GTS and an exclusive first opportunity to discover all about it! My friends at Dulac Cars have just taken delivery of the newest addition to their collection, so what could be better than a first drive in the GTS, joined by the 812 Superfast as well!

Ferrari last offered a series production front-engined V12 Spider back in 1969, in the form of the Daytona 365 GTS/4. Since then a few limited edition specials have surfaced including the 550 Barchetta, 575 Superamerica, 599 SA Aperta and most recently the 10-unit F60 America. However launching 50 years further on from the Daytona Spider, the 812 GTS has arrived that brings a hard top folding roof to the winning formula of the 812superfast.

The Ferrari 812superfast itself launched a few years ago to follow-up the Ferrari F12berlinetta, and what a car it is with amazing looks and a phenomenal driving experience. Up front sits an exceptionally potent 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 that puts out 800hp and 718nm, combined with Ferrari's latest technologies and driving dynamics to offer the ultimate in super-GT experience. The only possible way that could have been improved would be the arrival of a convertible version, and we now have that in the form of the 812 GTS.

With a roof that can open in 14 seconds, or a rear window that can be lowered independently, the 812 GTS brings even more of the aural symphony to the cabin that you'd hope to experience, without losing anything beyond some of the luggage space, as would be expected.

You join me visiting the garage of Dulac Cars, a private collection of supercars that are each wearing magnificent specifications, and very much driven as daily drivers. The brand new 812 GTS has only just arrived, as a new addition alongside the 812superfast that has covered 20,000km in the last 18 months, and a Pista Spider in the highest of Tailor Made configurations that would be possible.

This specific car is in Grigio Silverstone with a stripe added to link to the heritage of the most valuable 250 GTO ever sold, and finished with an Iroko brown interior. As we kick off from the Dulac Cars garage with both 812s together, it's time to head out onto the roads in convoy to get a first drive impression for the new 812 GTS and what it's like!

Having always loved the 812superfast, my expectations for the GTS have been very high, particularly with interest as to whether it should become a future Shmeemobile. Needless to say, it doesn't disappoint!

A huge thanks goes to my friends at Dulac Cars for the opportunity to drive such a wonderful car, please do check them out and follow at:

Thanks for watching, Tim
