La Ferrari, the car that sure has a lot to live up to. Its predecessors are now legends; the Enzo, F50 and F40. The flagship Ferrari also has stiff competition in the form of the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. Ferrari, being the marque that they are, were aware of all of this when designing and producing the hypercar and the results certainly are not disappointing. One of the first cars to be on the road has been seen in the principality of Monaco, finished in a stunning red.
The Ferrari LaFerrari gets a 6.3 liter V12 which is connected to an electric motor similar to the system on the McLaren P1. The Ferrari F150 V12 has an output of 800hp at 9.000 RPM and 700Nm at 7.000 RPM while its electric motor has a maximum output of 163hp and 270Nm of torque. That delivers a total combined power output of 963hp, allowing the new Ferrari Enzo to do 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.
The car is said to lap Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in less than 1 minute 20 seconds. That is five seconds quicker than the Enzo and more than three seconds quicker than the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Compared with the Ferrari Enzo, torsional rigidity is up 27 percent and longitudinal stiffness increases 22 percent, while weight goes down by 20 percent.
The Ferrari looks like nothing else on the road, a revolutionary design that we are sure will be looked back on in the future as one of the most elegant yet aggressive design in history!
