The Ferrari LaFerrari
Experience the Ferrari LaFerrari at Ferrari of Palm Beach
The LaFerrari needs few superlatives. It pushes the boundaries of technology for a road car and gathers together the marque's greatest technical capabilities from both GT and Formula 1 engineering, delivering the highest performance ever reached by a production Ferrari. And yet, the cause is noble. All this advanced technology will filter to the rest of the Ferrari model range.
As Ferrari’s first production car powered by the F1-derived HY-KERS hybrid drivetrain, it combines a 161-hp electric motor with the most powerful Ferrari V12, itself making 788 hp at 9000 rpm, for a power sum of 949 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque.
As Ferrari’s fastest-ever road car, the LaFerrari slashes over 5 seconds off the Enzo’s lap record at the Fiorano circuit. The hybrid power unit, evolution in traction and damping control, brakes and tires all make this possible. The integrated development of the entire car - and not simply its 949 total hp and 663 lb-ft of torque - enable this feat.
One of the LaFerrari's greatest challenges is incorporating the hybrid drive system. Despite having the same wheelbase and overall length as the Enzo, the LaFerrari packages its V12 engine, hybrid system, F1 dual-clutch gearbox plus all their cooling systems. Put another way, meticulous, clever engineering and design fits the running gear of two cars in the engine space of one.
The LaFerrari driver is laid back more than in the Enzo and more than in other current production Ferrari models. There's a greater rake to the body, making the LaFerrari a meeting point between sports car and F1 single-seater driving positions. The seat itself is part of the chassis and not bolted into place, improving sensitivity to vehicle dynamics. While the seat is fixed inlace, the pedal box adjusts completely. Similarly, the steering wheel adjusts for reach and height.
