An image has just emerged online reportedly showing Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton’s brand new Ferrari LaFerrari.
A few months ago, the Briton took delivery of a bright blue McLaren P1 at his home in Monaco. Additionally, Mercedes-AMG F1 team principal Toto Wolff confirmed earlier in the year that Hamilton had also placed an order for the LaFerrari.
If this is indeed Hamilton’s LaFerrari, then it is unlike any other we’ve seen. For starters, it has been painted in a stunning shade of red and while most LaFerraris feature black roofs, this example’s roof is also painted red as are the A-pillars. Elsewhere, we can see gloss black on the lower front bumper and side skirts while a set of five-spoke glass black wheels are also featured. Furthermore, the wheels have red Ferrari centre caps, red outer rims and cover the red brake calipers.
The hypercar is of course powered by a hybrid drivetrain, wherein a 6.3-litre V12 engine works in unison with an electric motor. The V12 has an output of 789 hp and 700 Nm, while the electric motor generates 161 hp.
This means that when the two work together, the LaFerrari delivers 950 hp and over 900 Nm of torque, allowing it to sprint from 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds and achieve a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.
