La FerrariAuto News Nov 18th, 2018
The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. This is the new Ferrari supercar and as you can see matches the previous leaked photo we showed a short while ago. At its heart is a V12 6262cc engine outputting 800 HP (588 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque at 6,750 rpm. The electric motor provides an extra 163 HP (120 kW) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm). Ferrari says the car emits 330 g/km of CO2.
As a result, LaFerrari has a combined output of 963 HP (708 kW) and can rev up to 9,250 rpm. All that power is sent to the wheels through a seven-speed DCT. It will do 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in less than three seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in under seven seconds and 0-300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds. Top speed stands at more than 350 km/h (217 mph).
LaFerrari is 4702mm long, 1992mm wide and 1116mm tall. It has a 2665mm wheelbase. It weighs 1,255 kg (2,766 lbs) which is distributed 41 percent front / 59 percent rear. The front of the supercar features a double wishbone suspension and the back gets a multi-link setup. It rides on 19-inch front wheels with 265/30 tires and 20-inch rear wheels with 345/30 rubbers.
The stopping power comes from Brembo carbon ceramic brakes measuring 398 x 223 x 36mm front / 380 x 253 x 34 mm rear. Electronic controls include ESC stability control, EF1-TRAC (F1 electronic traction control integrated with the hybrid setup), third-gen differential and magnetorheological damping with twin solenoids.
The HY-KERS system weighs 140 kg (308 lbs), with 62 kg (136 lbs) of the weight being represented by the centrally-mounted batteries. Speaking of the battery pack, it recharges whenever the power unit generates excess torque and also via regenerative braking.
Ferrari confirmed they plan on making only 499 units, but they didn’t say when deliveries will start. However, reports are suggesting an autumn arrival. Most of the cars have already been sold, but Ferrari says you can still grab one if you are willing to spend 1.3M EUR (1.11M GBP or 1.69M USD).
