Ferrari Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Enrico Galliera describes the Ferrari 812 Competizione, as a car with unparalleled performance.
“Performance is key for this car. Being a car inspired by racing there has been extensive work on the weight. We have extensively used carbon fibre.”
“We have been working very hard on the vehicle dynamic. Vehicle dynamic means all the features that help to improve the performance and pleasure to drive,” Enrico said.
Carbon Revolution CEO, Jake Dingle said the 812 Competizione is an important vehicle to Ferrari and for Carbon Revolution to be named by Ferrari as one of its select few technology partners, alongside leading global brands such as Apple, HP, Bosch and Brembo is indeed an honour.
“At a time when a lot of our development and production is broadening to include electric vehicles, SUVs and Pickup Trucks, it is both exciting and important for Carbon Revolution to continue to innovate our product and manufacturing technologies to meet the extreme demands of Ferrari’s latest high-performance vehicle,” Jake said.
Carbon Revolution Engineering & Design Director, Dr Ash Denmead said “Our engineering team was challenged by Ferrari to develop an incredibly lightweight wheel that could meet the extreme load requirements of the 812 Competizione”.
“The ability to deliver a wheel of such low weight that can handle the combination of aerodynamic downforce and engine performance of this car is truly a great engineering feat. The fact that Ferrari continues to place their faith in Carbon Revolution is strong validation of our unique technology,” Dr. Denmead said.
Ferrari established the partnership with Carbon Revolution over five years ago and now its wheels are on eight of Ferrari’s most high performing models: 488 Pista, 488 Pista Spider, F8 Tributo, F8 Spider, SF90 Stradale, SF90 Spider, 812 Competizione, and 812 CompetizioneA.
Jake Dingle said, “It is testament to our team and our technology that we continue to strengthen our strategic partnership with Ferrari and other global OEMs. The awareness of the benefits of Carbon Revolution’s carbon fibre wheels is growing rapidly across a number of vehicle applications.”
