When you see automotive tug-of-war videos they usually involve big diesel trucks and a lot of tire smoke. So when you see a tug-of-war video featuring the pride of Ferrari’s fleet – the LaFerrari – you know things are going to be interseting.
This tug-of-war videos features a LaFerrari doing battle against a KTM Super Duke motorcycle. While the Super Duke is an impressive machine in its own right, it doesn’t stand much of a chance against the power of the LaFerrari.
As a reminder, the LaFerrari features a 6.3-litre V12 engine mated to an advanced KY-KERS system. All up, the Italian hybrid hypercar delivers a brutal 950 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. Combine this with a claimed dry kerb weight of just 1255 kg and on paper, you have the makings of a car that can easily out tug most any motorcycle.
Check out the full video above for a look at one of the most interesting tug-of-wars we’ve seen.
It’s not down to power here! It’s the weight of the Ferrari and the contact patch of the tyre on the ground giving extra surface area and therefore more grip. Such a stupid waste of time and effort!!
