I love Ferraris, especially those from the early days of the marque. There’s a lot of excitement today in car circles over the official launch of LaFerrari, the ultimate Ferrari driving machine.
The statistics are amazing. Top Gear says that, ‘with a total combined output of 950bhp, LaFerrari will get from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds, hit 124mph four seconds later, and top out ‘in excess’ of 218 miles an hour’. NINE HUNDRED AND FIFTY BHP….And it’s got KERS in that.
A direct rival for the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918, LaFerrari is designed and largely built in-house at Maranello. Looks are a bit ‘meh’ (it’s not got no Pininfarina styling at all) but apparently it’s so fast that it ‘warps scenery‘ and is ‘violent, visceral, synapse snapping, and utterly, utterly addictive‘.
Yours for over 1 million pounds (should you be one of the lucky 499 owners selected by Ferrari). Listen to the noise of the V12 on the video.
