2021 Ferrari 812 GTS verdict and specs
Huge performance from an awe-inspiring V12 engine and a drop-top experience to savour – is the Ferrari 812 GTS the best convertible you can buy?...
The Ferrari 812 GTS comes with a four-year warranty as standard, along with a seven-year servicing plan. And yes, it’s expensive. Does that matter?
If you’re well-heeled enough to be putting down your hard-earned (or inherited) wealth towards this, you’ll be doing so comfortably and with little need to consider the fuel and other running costs associated with supercar ownership.
Even so, at around £30,000 more than the 812 Superfast, it's stupendously expensive. The GTS is, ultimately, very similar to that deeply impressive sports car, and choosing one or the other will only really come down to whether you want a convertible or not.
And, to be fair, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante and Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster are also hugely expensive, so the realms of value for money are clearly far, far away from this class of car.
Can anything with wheels justify this cost? Well, if you plump for the Ferrari 812 GTS, the engine alone will likely make you feel like it’s worth it, and the fact that it’s brilliant to drive only sweetens the deal.
