The LaFerrari Is Six Years Old, But It Will Still Blow Your Mind

It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than six years since the LaFerrari was presented to the world yet, despite its age, Ferrari’s first hybrid hypercar remains one of the most desirable performance cars on earth.

At the time of its launch, it directly rivaled the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, making up the trio of hybrid hypercars lovingly known as the ‘Holy Trinity.’ All three provide truly blistering performance, but it is the LaFerrari which has proven to be the best investment of the three, with low-mileage used examples easily fetching more than $3 million a pop.

The LaFerrari which Doug DeMuro had the chance to sample is owned by well-known exotic car collector David Lee. It has been taken on a number of track days and is no garage queen, even though both its interior and exterior look as good as new.

As per usual, DeMuro points out a number of interesting things about the LaFerrari that you may not have previously known. For example, the digital gauge cluster is not operated through buttons and switches on the steering wheel; instead, there are some buttons on the door panel and additional ones in the center of the dashboard.

Powering the LaFerrari is a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 which delivers 789 hp at 9000 rpm and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. This powertrain is mated to a KERS unit that provides an additional 161 hp, for a combined total of 950 horses, enough to send the hypercar around a race track (never mind public roads…) at frightening speeds.

 

  • when batteries are dead it’s “only” 750hp and as day to day usability is almost zero with this one; I prefer a track focused supersport over this. like 488 pista, like 720s, huracan performante, even may be mclaren 600lt.

    only thing with this is, I suppose; it’s a limited edition car.
