If you’re anything like me, you have your Veruca Salt moments. You know, those times where you just can’t wait to get your hands on whatever your latest obsession is – as Salt famously put it, “I want it now!” In my case, that object is most often a mechanical watch or a car that has caught my eye. And once you get it in your mind that you need it, having to wait weeks or months for it to arrive can be excruciating. That’s where the second-hand market comes to the rescue. Don’t bother with waiting lists and production limitations, just head on down and pick it up – Now!
And what better car to do that with than this mint-condition 2018 812 Superfast; Ferrari’s latest and greatest V12 GT car. Under the bonnet lives an absolute beast; a 6.5-litre, 789 bhp monster that propels the 812 to 62 in under 3 seconds. As far as I can tell, the 812 Superfast still carries the distinction of having the most powerful natrurally-aspirated engine ever fitted to a production car. Forget GT cruising, you could be demolishing some of the most prestigious exotic cars out there by the weekend in this thing.
This particular 2018 Superfast, practically brand new with only 3500 miles on the clock, is currently available at Pegasus Auto House in Central London. Here is the list of features detailed on their site:

Aside from this laundry list of features, there is currently no write-up about the car on the Pegasus website. That’s okay, though, as they more than make up for the lack of words with gorgeous photography that has me thinking the Grigio Titanio Metallic might just be the best colour for the 812. Let’s face it, with an asking price of £365,000, if you can afford this car, there isn’t much stopping you from buying one brand new. I would encourage you to head on down for a gander at this fine used example, however, to satisfy your inner Veruca Salt.
The car is available at Pegasus Auto House Limited. Be Quick!
