Ferrari has unveiled the LaFerrari. Successor to its Enzo supercar at the Geneva Motor Show. Like its rival from McLaren, the P1, it features a hybrid powerplant.
The new car features a 6.3-liter V12 engine with 789 horsepower married to a 160-hp electric motor. The combination is good for a full 949hp and 663 lb-ft of torque, and Ferrari says the LaFerrari will reach 62 miles per hour in under three seconds.
“We chose to call this model LaFerrari because it is the maximum expression of what defines our company – excellence,” declared Ferrari’s resident, Luca di Montezemolo. “Excellence in terms of technological innovation, performance, visionary styling and the sheer thrill of driving. Aimed at our collectors, this is a truly extraordinary car which encompasses advanced solutions that, in the future, will find their way onto the rest of the range, and it represents the benchmark for the entire automotive industry. LaFerrari is the finest expression of our company’s unique, unparalleled engineering and design know-how, including that acquired in Formula 1.”
