Ferrari has taken the roof of its front-engined V12-powered 812 Superfast supercar to create the 812 GTS.

The GTS’ main differentiating factor is its electrically retractable hardtop, which can open and close in 14 seconds at speeds up to 45km/h. The additional body strengthening and weight of the roof mechanism has increased the drop-top’s kerb mass to 1600kg, some 75kg heavier than the coupe.

While the GTS retains the Superfast coupe’s 588kW/718Nm, 8900rpm-redline 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, the additional weight has increased the 0-100km/h sprint time by a tenth to just under three seconds. The 0-200km/h time has grown by four tenths to 8.3 seconds, though the 340km/h top speed of the coupe carries over unchanged.

The 812 GTS is the first regular production V12 Ferrari convertible in half a century, since 365 GTS4 (or Daytona Spider) of 1969.

Customer deliveries of the 2020 Ferrari 812 GTS commence next year, with Australian pricing expected to land north of $700,000 plus on-road costs.
