The company began in 1947 when the first Ferrari was created and is known as the 125 S which was powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine. The 125 S made its competitive debut at the Piacenza Circuit on May 11th 1947. Ferrari has always been developing sports cars, and the story all started on the race tracks. The Ferrari LaFerrari is the successor of the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari and Ferrari’s first hybrid vehicle. Unlike its two main rivals in the hypercar area, the LaFerrari can’t be plugged in and has no electric-only mode.
Under the hood
The LaFerrari has a mid-mounted 6.3-litre V12 engine and is assisted by Ferrari’s HY-KERS system which is capable of producing 950 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. 0-124mph takes under 7 seconds with a top speed of nearly 220 miles per hour. This hypercar has Rear Wheel Drive and an 7 speed dual-clutch automatic. Push the throttle down and the hypercar responds in 0.1 seconds. Mounted on the floor behind the rear seats you will find the 2.3-kwh lithium-ion array from Samsung. Which is armored with a layer of Kevlar to protect it.
Active aerodyamics play a key role and include a flexible front diffuser and underbody vanes, as well as an active rear spoiler and diffuser.
The air movement around the car is adapted to the driving situation. A giant rear spoiler deploys out and up. Flaps in the front and rear open and close to regulate underbody airflow. And a vane in front controls air to the radiator. At 125 mph the car generates up to 1100 pounds of downforce. The interior is accessed through beetle-wing doors. The all-digital dash is comes with a massive rev counter for a racy look. There are three different instrument styles that can be chosen. Hypercar fans have enough choices at the moment.
