LaFerrari Supecar “Defines Excellence” Says di Montezemolo

The successor to the Enzo and a car Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says “defines excellence” has finally been unveiled today at the Geneva Motor Show.

The first Ferrari road car in history to be powered by a gasoline-electric system, it uses what Ferrari calls HY-KERS. Making 789 hp from its 6.3-liter V12 engine and revving to 9250 rpm, when mated to the electric boost of 161 hp total system output is 950 hp.

As for performance stats, Ferrari claims a 0-62 mph time of under 3.0 seconds, 0-124 mph in under 7.0 seconds and finally a speed to 186 mph (300 km/h) of under 15 seconds – a solid two seconds faster than the McLaren P1. Unlike the McLaren, however, the LaFerrari will not be able to propel itself under pure electric power, which the British supercar can do for up to 10 miles.

As though there were any doubt, the LaFerrari is the fastest road-going car in the iconic brand’s history, and boasts a lap time at the company’s Fiorano track of under 1:20. That, says Ferrrari, is 3 seconds a lap faster than the F12 and an astonishing 5 seconds a lap faster than the Enzo.

With a regenerative braking function, the batteries can be recharged both under braking, as well as when the gasoline V12 generates excessive torque, with the excess torque converted to energy. Of course, all power makes it to the wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

I just don't like it, they'll never build anything more beautiful than the 288 GTO IMO. From that angle it has a lot of the old Ford GT90 concept in its appearance.

Is not a beautiful car, but, really, is better looking than everything from Maranello in 10 years! looks amazing, wild, fast, exclusive, expensive... the whole design say: " buy me, take me, drive me". The best from Geneva
