2013 Ferrari LaFerrari Debuts in Geneva, Succeeding Famous Enzo
Ditch the F70 and the F150. ‘The Ferrari’ has made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. As Lamborghini and McLaren reveal their hyper cars, the men of Maranello rise to the challenge with the reveal of its most anticipated model; the Ferrari LaFerrari (simply translated as ‘The Ferrari’), the successor to the Enzo, F50 and the F40 before it.
The Heart of Ferrari LaFerrari
The specifications and the performance of Ferrari LaFerrari is more than impressive. In terms of power, the Ferrari Enzo successor has a hybrid powertrain; a combination of 6.3-litre V12 engine creating 789HP, paired with an electric motor that produces 161HP. Geared by a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the LaFerrari is capable of producing a total output of 950HP and torque of well over 893Nm.
The Tested Performance
So how fast does the Ferrari LaFerrari go? To start off, the LaFerrari is able to rev up to 9,250RPM which aids its 0-100km/h time into the sub-3 second frame and top speed of 349km/h, tested at its Fiorano test track. The Ferrari La Ferrari clocked a lap time of 1:20; 3 seconds faster than the awesome F12Berlinetta. Part of LaFerrari’s performance is credited to its design, thanks to its active aerodynamics and carbon monocoque; derived straight from the Formula 1 laboratories.
The Ferrari LaFerrari will sell at a price of more than £790,000 (RM3.7mil) and only 499 units will be made for production. Despite its limited production and hefty price, LaFerrari will surely be a most sought-after vehicle for being the most technologically advanced and most violent Ferrari to ever roam the streets.
