The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car, drawing together the finest expression of its technical capabilities in both GT and Formula 1 engineering. It boasts the most extreme performance ever achieved by a Ferrari production car and features the most advanced and innovative technical solutions that will, in the future, filter down to the rest of the Ferrari range.
The LaFerrari is Ferrari’s first ever production car to be equipped with the F1-derived hybrid solution – the HY-KERS system – which combines an electric motor producing over 150 CV with the most powerful incarnation yet of Ferrari’s classic V12, with 800 CV at 9000 rpm. Talk about zooming into the future with a car like this.
We love that Ferrari “invites” only a select few to purchase this car. Only 500 of these cars are made and they cost almost half a million dollars each. The inside scoop? Recently a luxury automotive enthusiast in the San Antonio area was invited to purchase the car. It arrived in a wooden crate and was displayed at Ferrari of San Antonio until delivered to the purchaser.
