Ferrari LaFerrari: price, specs and all the details

Ferrari has finally joined the battle to build the world’s greatest sports car with its new Ferrari LaFerrari. It’s set up to fight the impressive McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder – and with its advanced hybrid powertrain and outlandish looks, it has certainly made an impression.

The LaFerrari was first seen at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and clearly got some hearts racing straight away: all 499 examples of Ferrari’s hybrid hypercar sold out before the car was even available.

Formula One technology is abundant in the LaFerrari – as you might expect with a £1million price tag. It’s set to go down in history as one of the most sought-after cars ever – so read on below to find out everything there is to know about it.

The LaFerrari’s mid-mounted 6.3-litre V12 engine is electrically assisted by Ferrari’s HY-KERS system to deliver a total power output of 950bhp. It’s enough to make the LaFerrari’s rumoured top speed of 227mph a realistic posibility and to see the car past 62mph in under three seconds.

The first drive reviews are out and now car fans accross the world are waiting with baited breath for news of the Ferrari LaFerrari’s Nurburgring lap time after the war of oneupmanship that’s been going on between the car’s arch rivals, the Mclaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. Reports that a race-prepared LaFerrari XX version of the car may have lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a mind-blowing 6m 35s are only adding the furore as has the video of Fernando Alonso getting behind the wheel.
