Overview

Italian manufacturer Ferrari has a long and glorious history of building cars at the leading edge of performance. For 2015, Ferrari has reached new heights with the ultra-exotic LaFerrari.
2016,
2016,The LaFerrari is Ferrari's first road-going gasoline-electric hybrid. And what a first it is. The rear-drive, carbon fiber-clad car is powered by a HY-KERS hybrid system similar to that found in Ferrari's Formula 1 race cars. A mid-mounted 6.3L gasoline V12 revs to 9,350 rpm and produces a staggering 789 horsepower along the way. It is the same unit found in front of the F12 Berlinetta. Meanwhile, a 120-kilowatt electric motor adds 160 horses to the mix. Total output is 949 horsepower, with torque rated at 663 pound-feet, and power is put to the rear wheels through an incredibly quick seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, complete with rev matching on downshifts. A 132-pound battery pack sits low in the chassis and, as in the F1 machines, gets recharged during braking. That braking comes courtesy of Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, 15.7 inches front and 15 inches rear.
2016,
2016,The LaFerrari owes its form to extensive wind tunnel testing, with an adjustable rear spoiler, and it borrows styling cues from contemporary and previous Ferrari models alike, such as the Enzo. It is lower and narrower than the Enzo -- and 27 percent stiffer -- and it has a lower center of gravity by 1.4 inches. It rides on enormous, sticky Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires -- 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear. Its impressive driving dynamics owe themselves partly to extensive testing by Ferrari team race drivers.
2016,
2016,Doors to the cockpit open upward, and inside you'll find a fixed driver's seat positioned much as you'd find in a single-seat race car. Only the pedals and steering wheel are adjustable. A flat-bottom, F1-inspired steering wheel houses a host of controls, from turn signals and paddle shifters to a switch that dials in five different driving modes.
2016,
2016,Electronic controls include stability control, F1 electronic traction control, an electronic differential, and active aerodynamics.
