designboom has just returned from the 2013 geneva international motor show, where ferrari has taken wraps off their highly anticipated supercar naming it as ‘laferrari’. with just 499 production vehicles to be built, the limited-series automobile combines formula one performance and sustainability with its first ever hybrid powertrain – a HY-KERS system that delivers 963 horsepower from its V12 engine and its two electric motors. equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch gear box EF1-trac F1 electronic traction control system, ‘laferrari’ is capable of reaching speeds over 350 km/h –  launching 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and 0-200 km/h in under 7 seconds, making it the fastest road car in the company’s long history.

 

to boost efficiency, sports active aerodynamic devices front (diffusers and guide vane on the underbody) and rear (diffusers and rear spoiler) generate down force when needed without compromising the car’s overall drag coefficient – deploying automatically on the basis of a number of different performance parameters which are monitored in real time by the car’s dynamic vehicle controls.

developed by flavio manzoni’s design team, ‘laferrari’s’ styling works in close collaboration with the engineers to emphasize and retain close links to the marque’s tradition – and to that of the ferrari enzo predecessor. its side profile sees a sharp, downward-sloping nose and a low hood highlighting its muscular wheel arches, a clear reflection to the forms found in the late-1960s ferrari sports prototypes.

the layout of the cabin is tailored to the driver – where instead, the seat is fixed, while both the pedal box and steering wheel are adjustable. the driving position is similar to that of a single-seater, which was configured based on input from F1 drivers fernando alonso and felipe massa, who played an active role throughout the entire development process.

  • I totally agree. I have a collection of every Ferrari because I love them. The day they stop making them with their supersize engines, that’s the day i’ll stop buying them.

  • @Babak It may be an hybrid but there is nothing “eco-friendly” about this car at all… Not saying it’s a bad thing, just it is not the point of a Ferrari. The day they drop the V12 for a 4 cylinder then maybe… but it won’t be a supercar anymore.

  • Good to see Ferrari is following in Porsche’s footsteps and finally produced a more or less Eco-friendly hybrid supercar.
