The LaFerrari has been unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The LaFerrari has been unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The LaFerrari is a special limited-edition model of which only 499 examples will be produced. It is the first Ferrari with the HY-KERS hybrid powertrain that combines a V12 engine with two electric motors for a combined power output of 950 hp with a top speed of over 218 mph (350 km/h).

All in all the car guarantees maximum driving thrills in every situation and performance levels are top level: 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds and 0-124 mph in under 7 seconds, a lap time at Fiorano of under 1'20" - 5 seconds faster than the Enzo and over 3 seconds faster than the F12berlinetta. LaFerrari is thus the fastest road car in Maranello's long history.

"We chose to call this model LaFerrari," declared Ferrari's President, Luca di Montezemolo, at the world premiere in Geneva, "because it is the maximum expression of what defines our company - excellence. 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."

For Ferrari the development of a limited-series special like the LaFerrari represents an opportunity to experiment with all the technological solutions that will later filter down onto the production cars. Of particular significance in this context is the introduction of the hybrid system which, making full use of the Scuderia Ferrari's F1 KERS know-how, has resulted in a solution that exalts Ferrari's fundamental values - performance and driving thrills. The hybrid technology used, known as HY-KERS, represents the perfect combination of maximum performance and lower emissions.

The 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari is equipped with dynamic controls that are integrated for the first time ever on a Ferrari road car with active aerodynamics and the HY-KERS system. Thanks to Ferrari's proprietary logic which govern all the systems, the car can achieve absolute levels of performance, aerodynamic efficiency and handling without any form of compromise in any area. A very advanced and uncompromising approach was also taken with the interior design which features an HMI inspired by F1 single-seaters.

Some sources have said that the Italian maker will only sell the LaFerrari to special clients that already own at least 5 previous Ferraris.

The Ferrari LaFerrari's competitors come from Great Britain and Germany. They are the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
