Last week’s Geneva Motor Show treated the world to its first glimpse and the successor to the 2005 Ferrari Enzo, in the form of the quite breath-taking though questionably titled LaFerrari.
What we know so far about the LaFerrari is that not only is it one of the most stunning creations ever to boast four wheels, but is also by rights a living, breathing hybrid supercar. Under the hood lies a blistering 789BHP 6.3-liter V12 engine mated with a 161BHP electric motor and an automatic seven-speed gearbox. All in all therefore, you’re looking at a 900BHP superbeast of a car that’s good for at least 186MPH.
It’s pretty clear that the LaFerrari has been built with little in mind other than getting it around the track as fast as possible – it’s oozing with Formula One goodness all-round. There are plenty of different types of carbon fiber in its makeup, its aerodynamics have been lavished with attention and the interior has been left relatively sparse in order to further the impression that the LaFerrari means business…which it of course does.
And there’s also the rear spoiler which in many respects could have been lifted from a Formula One car and was described by PocketLint as making the LaFerrari look a bit like it’s wearing a thong…which is an image I now cannot get out of my head, so thanks for that!
But for all of its F1 prowess however, the LaFerrari is still technically a fully-fledged road-legal supercar and can be expected to launch sometime this year for the lucky few only.
And as far as the price goes, the LaFerrari is the very dictionary definition of a vehicle where if you have to ask, you haven’t a hope in hell of affording one!
