Supposedly, Ferrari has already reached out to loyal customers to inquire if they’d like to place orders for the new GTO, with production expected to be capped at 812 examples. The last front-engined Ferrari to have the GTO moniker was the 599 GTO, of which just 599 units were made. Not unexpectedly, Ferrari offered no comment on the 812 GTO rumors. But why would the track-focused variant be the last front-engined NA V12? Because the entire industry, supercars included, is switching gears towards electrification.
This doesn’t mean Ferrari is done with V12s entirely. On the contrary, there’s still a future for them, but they’re going to be electrified, likely connected to a plug-in hybrid setup, in order to meet new emissions standards.
