It might be a message from Ferrari telling people who were unhappy with the F150 appellation to go f**k their selves.. So here it is, "LaFerrari", the fastest, most powerful, most advanced road going masterpiece ever made by Ferrari. THE Ferrari represents everything that Ferrari is.
The recently unveiled Lamborghini Veneno might look outrageous from the outside, but its shares its beating heart with the Aventador. But the new LaFerrari, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. While from the outside it might resemble the 458 Italia, inside it hides one of the most technologically advanced power trains ever put on a road car. And what a car, a 949 Hp beast combining 160 Hp of pure electric power with a 6.3-liter V12 producing 789 Hp.
When it comes to performance, the Enzo replacement sheds 5 seconds off its predecessor's time around the Fiorano test track, which is a lot since we are talking about a 2.9 km (1.86 miles) long circuit.
Just like its direct competitor, the McLaren P1, the Maranello engineers didn't focus on top speed in the first place. Instead, they focused their energy on making the new hypercar as aerodynamically efficient as possible. The result is a car that can sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (62 mph) in less than three seconds with the 200 Km/h (124 mph) bar destroyed after just another four seconds. So who cares if the top speed is just 330 Km/h (205 mph) is the car is able to reach 200 Km/h even before you can finish saying that number...
So now the real question is, will it be faster than the McLaren P1?
