More of the LaFerrari's 'Not-So-Secret' Nurburgring Outing

Following a recent spy video of the brand new 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari testing at the Nurburgring, high quality spy images have just been snapped by Teamspeed.

As the above image shows, this LaFerrari prototype was sporting camouflage over around two-thirds of its already revealed body. This prototype was undergoing final testing ahead of the car hitting the production line later this year. While Ferrari hasn’t been known to post official lap times for its road-cars, it’s believed the Italian automaker will do so for the LaFerrari and a Porsche 918 Spyder rivalling time is certainly a possibility!

In fact, we’d be astounded if the LaFerrari didn’t set a new production-car lap record with it weighing around 400kg less than the Porsche 918 Spyder and developing 63hp more. With that being said, it’s well down on the insane torque output of the 918 Spyder.

The Ferrari LaFerrari 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 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari receives a 6.3 liter V12 which is connected to an electric motor similar to the system on the McLaren P1. LaFerrari’s V12 has an output of 800hp at 9,000rpm and 700Nm at 7,000rpm 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.
