A repeat client of ours from Vancouver recently visited Ralph’s Radio to discuss a 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast radar detector system. If you are a fan of BBC’s Top Gear, then you know that the brand new 812 Superfast is Ferrari’s latest grand touring monster. Powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12, the 812 Superfast can reach 100km/h in a neck-snapping 2.9 seconds. A momentary lapse of attention will have this gorgeous Nero Black coupe traveling well over the speed limit. The client wanted the best radar and laser protection system available.
Escort 9500CI Pro Ferrari 812 Superfast Radar Detector
To warn the driver about the use of X, K, and Ka-band radar, we installed a twin-antenna Passport radar receiver module coupled to an Escort 9500CI Pro controller. The radar receiver is located behind the front bumper of the 812 Superfast. The radar signals can pass through the bumper material unimpeded.
The controller for the 9500CI is mounted on the left side of the narrow center console, making it easy to access from the driving position. The display for the system is mounted above the rear-view mirror. This location provides easy visibility without distraction.
Laser Defense System
Everyone in British Columbia knows that the real threat comes in the form of police laser systems. The Escort 9500CI Pro includes four laser transceiver modules that delay the police from being able to take a speed measurement until the client can slow down. We mounted the front laser transceivers to the forward crash bar behind the front bumper. The units have a clear line-of-sight through the open-mesh grille. The rear laser transceivers are mounted above the license plate on the rear of the vehicle.
Expert Installation by Ralph’s Radio
As with all of our projects, we integrate components into the vehicle with as much attention to detail as the quality of the hardware itself. We used OEM-quality Tesa cloth tape to bundle and secure all the sensor wiring as it runs through the vehicle. The control hardware is mounted to factory fastener locations, eliminating the need to drill any holes in the vehicle. The installation of this Ferrari 812 Superfast radar system doesn’t alter the car in any way, except provide it with protection.
