2013 Ferrari LaFerrari
Just when you think the bar couldn’t be raised higher, leave it to Ferrari to raise it even further. Redundant or not, its name is simple and elegant: LaFerrari. The notoriety of the one-word name is warranted as LaFerrari will replace the legendary Enzo. At its heart is the 6.3-liter V12 from the F12berlinetta, which previously reigned as the most powerful Ferrari road car to date. LaFerrari boasts somewhere in the neighborhood of 950 horsepower, and laps Fiorano a full three seconds faster than the F12 – and an astonishing five seconds faster than the Enzo. An additional 59 horsepower are gleaned from the F12’s V12 via a lighter crankshaft, variable-length intake runners, and hydroformed Inconel headers. As the first hybrid from Maranello, an electric motor generating approximately 160 more ponies is attached rearward of the seven-speed automated-manual transmission. Externally, the lines of LaFerrari contain active diffusers, guide vanes on the underbody, and an active rear spoiler. These elements all provide downforce while reducing drag. LaFerrari is hand-built from varying degrees of lightweight carbon-fiber among its brethren grand prix cars. Even the seats are molded into the tub, and the steering wheel and pedals adjust to accommodate a driver’s height. So yes, LaFerrari comes to you; if you are lucky enough to be one of the 499 on the invitation-to-own list.
