Ferrari Australasia has unveiled the new 812 GTS Spider at it’s dealership in Sydney’s North Shore this week, ahead of scheduled customer deliveries due in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The display model was shipped in from Dubai, and shown to customers who have already placed their orders for the new folding hard-top V12, and it’s been mentioned that the first shipment of vehicles is already spoken for, with buyers paying deposits over 12 months ago without any confirmations of pricing.
Ferrari Australasia has confirmed this week that the 812 GTS Spider will cost $675,888 plus on-road costs and stamp duty, commanding a price hike of $65,000 over the 812 Superfast Coupe that is it based on.
Peter Sutton, Ferrari Australasia’s newly appointed Sales Manager, confirmed to GoAuto.com.au at the GTSs’ local unveiling, that unlike the 812 Superfast, you do not need to have previously owned a Ferrari, in order to purchase the open-top GTS variant.
“This is to open the doors to new Ferrari owners as well” said Ferrari Australasia representative, Nicole Craig.
The 812 GTS is powdered by the same 6.5-litre V12 found in the Superfast, which pumps out 588kW of power and 718Nm of torque, capable of doing the 0-100km/h dash in 3.0 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 340km/h. Ferrari claims this to be the most powerful production V12 available today, making the 812 GTS Spider, the most powerful convertible available today.
