The car you’re looking at in the gallery above may well represent the end of a 70-year era at Ferrari. It’s called the 812 Superfast, and it’s almost certainly going to be the last Ferrari powered by just a naturally aspirated engine.

Ferrari plans to reveal the 812 Superfast at next month’s Geneva International Motor Show, but it has revealed some of the car’s specs a little early. Under that long, vented hood is a 6.5L V12 engine that makes 788hp (588kW, or 800 metric horsepower) at a showy 8,500rpm. Peak torque is 530lb-ft (718Nm) at 7,000rpm, and Ferrari says that 80 percent of that will be available from 3,500rpm.
