Background

The LaFerrari is the latest hypercar from Maranello - the ultimate expression of everything the Italians know about making fast cars. It follows in the footsteps of the 288 GTO, F40 and more; a once-a-decade blow-out, bringing much F1 know-how to the road.

60sec road test

This is one of the most spectacular cars on sale - and one of the most viciously fast. Rampant pace is on tap across the rev range, thanks to a stonking electric motor which fills in the torque curve while the V12 petrol engine wakes up. And wake up it does, smearing huge dollops of torque and a combined total of 950bhp through the sticky rear wheels. Think about that for a second; the McLaren P1 rival can ‘only’ muster 903bhp. And it’s not propelling much weight - the LaFerrari weighs a scant 1425kg, despite packing large battery packs and that extra hybrid gubbins. No wonder Ferrari claims a top speed in excess of 217mph, 0-62mph in comfortably less than 3.0sec and 0-186mph (0-300kph) in 15. Sadly, all 499 models Ferrari has committed to have been sold, for a price somewhere around £1.2 million each. It’s difficult not to get carried away when presented with any car that’s as quick as this, but LaFerrari is a work of genius. The fact that the myriad pieces of technology that together make this car so go fast have been integrated so seamlessly, is the real achievement here.
