We are pretty sure that hybrid vehicles are future and when the car maker like Ferrari also delivers models with hybrid powertrain we are sure that it has become serious. The 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari will have performance oriented powertrain that will also allow lower fuel consumption and tail pipe emissions.
State of the art both in design and used technology for this model that will combined power of the naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V12 unit from Ferrari and two electric motors as a part of HY-KERS system. One electric motor is mounted to the gearbox and will be used to send power to the rear wheels while the second one will be used to lower the load to the engine and will be powering auxiliary devices.
2015 Ferrari LaFerrari Review
As a result we are getting impressive power figures and according to the company it will offer 963 hp and more than 660 pound-feet of torque. With this setup it will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds while the 0 to 186 mph or 300km/h sprint is done in about 15 seconds. We can compare this model with a recently introduced McLaren P1 that also comes with hybrid powertrain that pumps out about 903 hp and is capable of accelerating from 0 to 186 mph or 300 km/h in about 17 seconds.
When we compare the 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari with vehicles that are already in the Ferrari’s stable we can say that it will be able to complete Fiorano test track lap in less than 1:20. This represents time that is about 3 seconds better than the previous flagship from the Italian car maker, F12 Berlineta. Also it is about 5 seconds faster than the iconic Enzo. For all this to work flawlessly there was a need for huge amount of F1 technology to be transferred to production ready models and this is a prime example that this can be done.
Carbon fiber that was used in creation of the body received similar treatment like it is the case with F1 cars. These allowed much better space optimization and significantly lower weight that is about 2800 pounds. Main structure part of the vehicle brings about 27 percent more torsional rigidity while it also offers 22 percent more beam stiffness when compared to Ferrari Enzo.
Price Of 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari
Just like other similar supercars this one will be also a limited production. This is mainly done so it would achieve much higher exclusivity, according to reports only 499 models will be delivered to the market. When something has the price of $1.2 million its creator needs to be sure that it will not be seen on every corner and that it will be quite exclusive model.
For a vehicle like the 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari to be successful on the track it is not enough just to deliver insane amount of power. Also, it is not enough to offer great aerodynamics, it needs to have perfect and somewhat fantastic aerodynamics. To achieve this we are getting fully automated adjustable aerodynamics that will react depending on number of factors. Overall drag coefficient will not be compromised but the front diffusers and guide vane will be adjusted plus at the rear we have rear spoiler and diffuser to further increase downforce needed for this vehicle top operate at optimum level.
