    After months of speculation... here it is... the sound of the 812 GTS (with GPF fitted) revving! Sent to me by a dealer in Australia that has a demonstrator.

    I spoke to the salesman and mentioned I’d already ordered one so no need for a sales pitch; what does it honestly sound like? He said the GTS is not quieter than the 812, although it does have more of a deep, baritone sound. He mentioned that most people couldn’t tell the difference between the two, unless they really listened for it.

    I guess this is good news!! Will be great to hear it in person, but it puts my mind at ease somewhat.

    I have tried to upload the video (.mov format) but it won't let me. If anyone is interested I can email to them - PM me.

    Perhaps someone more tech savvy can upload it if I email it to them?

    No, I have a different video sent by the dealer with no music, just of the car revving. Will upload once I figure it out!

    Ok, I have managed to do it via Youtube (below). Apologies for my technical ineptitude!

    This video came directly from a dealer and is a GTS demonstrator (with GPF fitted). Listening to the video again, back to back with the 812 coupe, I do think they sound different. The GTS is somewhat more muffled. Thoughts?

    Sounds good to me,.
    I would think the microphone was on the camera or phone inside the cabin, so it won’t sound the same as outside.

    Until we hear it in person we won’t know.
    If you can can get them to do the same standing at the rear of the car that might help?

    So hard to tell even in that room, but its sound promising. Its gonna lose a bit of the pitch we know that, PorscheGTs/AudiR8s the same but its maybe like 5-10% less pitch; even with that do you really think people are going to walk away. I think the larger issue the GTS has is the weight and just its look, I am trying to figure out what combo will hide its awkward humped side profile.

    even if that is muffled, it won't get much better than that.. don't know what else stock out of the box can sound like what the video shows

    Drove a 2020 812 twice over the last few weeks. Sounded like Godzilla in musth. The above video either doesn’t do justice or, well, I’m afraid to say....

    It's the male equivalent of being " in heat".

    Think of the rut, except for adult male elephants - and way more dangerous for anything in its path.

    Think noisy testosterone-driven rampage. *There’s an 812 exhaust note metaphor in there somewhere.

    I view this sort of like trying to evaluate colors via this forum, you know the one, " does anyone know what color this is?"

    Does anyone realize their phone or monitor displays different color values than the one right next door? So that one image can appear like two completely different colors on two different devices?

    Same goes for sound.

    If you're not evaluating the two cars right next to each other, recorded under the same conditions, there is really no way to get a good read on a GPF car versus a non GPF car. Files can be also edited.

    just sayin. . . .

    Personally, I'm going to wait for the demonstrator/launch car to show up at my dealer before I decide anything. cheers

    The below revving video of an 812 Superfast is probably getting pretty close to the set up of the 812 GTS revving video with the difference that the 812 SF is only revving up to ~ 5800 rpm and 812 GTS up to ~ 8500 rpm and the roof might be open.

    For whatever reason you need to click below the video into the text in order to view the video.

    Ferrari say they are compensating for the GPF by introducing equal length headers, I had a 997 GT3 and installed equal length headers and the sound was transformed (everything else was standard), much deeper and high pitch howl, opened up the acoustic range vastly...

    I think let’s see and wait but many things Ferrari can do to get the sound back and even improve the sound. (If not you can be sure the aftermarket seen will jump in)

    Nice to finally hear the car but will never be able to determine the sound from an iPhone video, and just revving, I want hear the thing blasting down the road at 100mph+ , live....that’s surely the only way we will be able to decide...
