    Thank you! I planned on keeping the car long term and driving it as much as I can. I estimated that, even if I am lucky, I likely won’t have 100k miles on this car in my lifetime. Distributing miles among different cars with some car flings (short term cars), even if I do as many fun drives as I can (various activities competing for time), I concluded that mileage is not a concern at all for me.

    If I remember correctly, I put my deposit down around October of 2020. Back when “everyone” thinks you cannot order a new 812 Superfast anymore, helpful @Marcel Massini generously helped me get to the truth to secure one of the last production cars. The car was airfreight to Seattle so that saved weeks.

    Curious, does your car have GPF devices?

    Yes, I think so. I looked briefly for exactly that before the car gets to the detailing shop for paint protection film install.

    I will look again when I get my car back and share photos of that.

    Does anyone know a good way to find the engine code? I think that also indicates GPF or not.

    Only your dealer will have the MODIS codes for your order. The GPF indication would of appeared in their system after your car's allocation was granted.

    Beautiful car....I think yellow calipers in the dark blues really pop...esp. with the shields. Drive that beautiful car in good health!

    I love the wheel in all weather with the LEDs. I speced it on my F8 spider as well. I’ll (hopefully) have my 812 out on the track in September. Novitec springs and alignment sure made a huge difference on the backroads

    Roger that.

    Dropped mine 1.25" all around with Novitecs and replaced the original P Zeros with the (TDF) Corsas good for 4 sec at COTA.

    I also did the same. While I don’t mind carbo fiber on the steering wheel surfaces that one would touch, I prefer leather.

    Are the Corsas pretty much the only sticky tires option in stock sizes?

    For a track focused tire yes, when I last looked. Off the top of my head it was mainly the fronts and load ratings with Cup 2s (need to go up to 305s and 325-21 rears for rolling diameter & loads????? But in the rears you want the taller sidewalls of the 20s anyway because of all that power going through the two wheels. Forget about Trofeos, you don’t want these as they have weak sidewalls. Been a while- slept and drank since then.

    I am probably going to have a set of wheels built for the SF with an extra 15-20 mm of offset in lieu of spacers. But that stance is what it should have come from the factory. Makes the SF look even sleeker- adds 50 mph to the car…..

    Will share some interior photos when the car is back from PPF install. As for track time, I pretty only do fun drives on the street these days (got the track bug out 15 to 20 years ago). If I get back to doing a bunch of track time, I will most likely go with a dedicated track vehicle. Of course, I think the 812 would be a lot of fun on track.

    Yeah I hear you. I bought a dot 1 GT3RS to use as my track car.

    The 812 is an absolute blast on track. The car just pounces like a cat from corner to corner in the short chutes and with the Novitec springs can hold its own in the twisties.

    Looking forward to the interior.............


    ps pads don't last long braking from 176 mph
