Ferrari LaFerrari

  The Ferrari LaFerrari, which was also referred to ass the F70 and F150 during its testing phase, was unveiled at Geneva in 2013 and it features a V-12 engine with 800 horsepower and an electric motor that adds 163 horsepower to the mix. Though all of the details are not yet released, we do know that it'll sprint to 100 km/h in under 3 seconds, 200 km/h in under 7 seconds and 300 km/h in under 15 seconds.

YouTube user BabyloNordschleife is one of the luckiest folks on Earth, as he managed to catch not one, but three LaFerraris on tape. He spotted the first one on an Italian highway between Carpi and Modena, and he caught the other two — on was completely uncovered and the other was almost completely uncovered — inside the Maranello Factory. Judging by the triple-take the engineer working on the LaFerrari outside of the factory gave the cameraman, he certainly did not approve of having the camera pointed Ferrari ’s newest supercar .

The only problem with the video is that we only get a few clear clips of the LaFerrari accelerating. Even with the lack of great audio, the video remains fantastic.

As a reminder, the LaFerrari is powered by a HY-KERS system that combines a 6.3 liter V-12 engine with two electric motors for a total output of 963 horsepower — 800 delivered by the V-12 engine and 163 by the electric motors. This system will sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and up to a top speed of more than 217 mph.

Thanks to Hendrik from the band brainphArt, once again, for the tip!

Yesterday a rather rough-looking LaFerrari prototype was caught testing at the Fiorano racetrack, which was cool in its own right. Today, however, we have a real treat for you in the form of a LaFerrari production prototype that Hendrick from brainphArt caught driving on the open road in Maranello. This marks the first time that a true production prototype of the newest Ferrari has been caught on film.

According to the report from Hendrick, he had an interesting talk with a Ferrari quality control employee just outside of the the Fiorano test track. According to this employee, Ferrari is hard at work on the final version of the LaFerrari , and the model at Museo Ferrari is a rushed-to-production rough draft and not a final production model.

So why is this the first appearance on a public road for the LaFerrari? According to Hendrik’s Ferrari source, there are only three pre-production LaFerrari prototypes in existence: the show car and two camouflaged versions for final testing. Typically, it only sees super-slow tours within the Ferrari campus or runs around Fiorano.

Many thanks to Hendrik from the rock band brainphArt and his girlfriend for the superb video!

The new LaFerrari supercar made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show , but it looks like Ferrari decided to keep quite, as we haven’t heard much else on it since then. Lucky for us, as Ferrari decides to keep secrets, we have YouTube user Marchettino who managed to catch the supercar testing at the famous Fiorano racetrack.

The car caught testing appears to be just a mule, but since we know how the LaFerrari looks, we really don’t mind. What this video offers us is an up-close listen to just how sweet the LaFerrari sounds under accelerations and bot does that V-12 engine sound nothing short of bad-ass.

The LaFerrari is powered by a HY-KERS system that combines a 6.3-liter V-12 engine with two electric motors — one motor powers the driven wheels and the second drives the ancillaries. This system delivers a total of 963 horsepower and sprints the supercar up to a top speed of 217 mph.

A real LaFerrari costs €1.3 million (about $1.7 million), which is apparently a bargain for the 1,000 clients who placed orders for the new supercar, but way too much for ordinary people like us. The second problem is that the LaFerrari will be limited to only 499 units, so most of us will never even have the chance to see it on the streets.

Luckily for us, the folks over at BBR have developed a LaFerrari that’s a little closer to our budget. Sure it can’t be driven on the road, as it is just a 1:18 scale model; but even so, it will look mighty fine sitting to your desk.

The 1:18 LaFerrari is priced at €361.18 (about $472) and will be available for order starting June 20th. BBR is also offering a special edition with a gloss-carbon-fiber roof priced at €372.08 ($486). This version will be limited to only 149 units. If the 1:18 scale model is still a little rich for your taste, you can also get a 1:43 scale model in red, Yellow Modena or black for just €157.90 (about $206).

Remember, Father’s day is just around the corner (June 16th) and this would be a great present for any Ferrari fan that can’t quite afford one. You can preorder one through BBR Models’ website.

Ferrari LaFerrari EVOXX

Just yesterday we mentioned a rumor suggesting there will be an extreme version of the recently announced LaFerrari supercar . However, Ferrari officials have denied those rumors and reported that we are not going to get something more extreme than the LaFerrari.

According to the Italian company , the man who sparked the rumors, LaFerrari’s chief designer Flavio Manzoni, got the wrong idea. In a recent interview with AutoCar, he reported that there are lots of design elements Ferrari didn’t used in the LaFerrari, but they will be included in future Ferrari models, including in a more extreme version of the model.

However, it looks like such a car is "easily done, but it’s not the case." Meaning that Ferrari has no plans for a model placed above the LaFerrari and such a model is or never was under discussion. So we guess we are not going to get our LaFerrari EVOXX after all! At least that’s what the super-secretive supercar builder claims

Nothing surprises us anymore when it comes to Ferrari . Its relentless pursuit of building some of the world’s most extreme supercars knows no bounds.

And after Autocar reported that there are plans to build an extreme version of its newest hypercar, the LaFerrari , it all seemed par for the course for the Italian automaker.

With the LaFerrari limited to just 499 units, Ferrari wants to build an even more exclusive version of the 963-horsepower hypercar. That’s what Flavio Manzoni, the LaFerrari’s chief designer, told Autocar. Could this possibly be the LaFerrari EVOXX that we spoke of back in March?

“When we were producing the original design proposals for LaFerrari,” said Manzoni, “there was one proposal that I thought was especially beautiful. So we decided to keep that one back for something truly special in the future.”

That "something truly special" appears to be this mystery hypercar that could pack well north of 1,000 horsepower. Talk about its exclusivity should be one of the most important details of this vehicle; Manzoni estimates that no more than 10 could be built with an estimated price tag of anywhere between £3 million ($4.67 million) and £5 million ($7.78 million).

The new 2014 LaFerrari is no doubt the most amazing car we have seen this year, as it combines a stunning design language with tons of horsepower under the hood. And when it comes to designing great watches inspired by Ferrari ’s design language, the folks over Hublot do an amazing job.

Its latest creation - the MP-05 "LaFerrari " is a wristwatch worthy of its name. Not only because it features a great look, but the new MP-05 watch also scored a new world record by way of a 50-day power reserve.

The watch was designed entirely in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari team. It features 637 components for the movement, a Tourbillon and 11 barrels arranged in a line just like a spinal column.

Hublot designed a complex-shaped sapphire crystal reminiscent of the Laferrari’s outline, as well as an open case-back made from black PVD titanium. What is very interesting on the new MP-05 "LaFerrari" watch is the original display: on the right side of the barrels you will see the hour and the minute, and on the left side the power reserve.

The new MP-05 "LaFerrari" will be limited to only 50 units. The price isn’t available online, but you can head to Hublot’s website to find a retailer near you.

Hit the jump to read full MP-05 "LaFerrari" technical details and a promo video for the watch.

The perks of being a Formula One driver appear to be endless. If being privileged to occupy one of the 20, or so, seats in the grid isn’t cool enough, a driver like multiple-time world champion Fernando Alonso certainly has one of the coolest perks of any driver outside of the racetrack.

The lead Ferrari driver gets to take tours of the automaker’s facilities while also being fawned and fought over wherever he goes. It’s a good life, indeed.

But one of the biggest benefits of being a driver on a team like Ferrari is the kind of access you have to some of the company’s biggest projects. Recently, the two-time driver’s champion paid a visit to the company’s facility in Maranello where he met some of Ferrari’s best and brightest engineers.

But the real highlight of Alonso’s visit was the chance to sit behind the wheel of the LaFerrari and take it for a spin around the track. Not a lot of people get to do that and Alonso looks right at home driving that 900-horsepower supercar.

A few days ago, we brought you a video showing the LaFerrari Concept Manta at the Ferrari Exhibition. Manta and the Tensostruttura concept (shown here) are the two development versions of the new LaFerrari supercar that have been produced in 1-to-1 scale. It’s not that we do not like the two concept cars, but we are very happy Ferrari decided to continue improving its design language until it finally evolved to the masterpiece called LaFerrari.

Overall, Ferrari developed a total of nine different concepts for the LaFerrari before arriving at the final product. It’s a truly a unique opportunity to see this car, since most automotive manufacturers never show the development processes of their vehicles.

Let us know in the comment section below which of the two concepts you like better: Manta or Tensostruttura? We think the second one gets a little bit closer to the final product.

Everyone knows that each model developed by Ferrari will also get a track-focused version at some point, especially when we are talking about one like the LaFerrari . We are pretty sure that Ferrari is going to unveil an EvoXX version in the near future, so we have created a rendering (above) that might help you get a better idea of what to expect the track-ready version of the LaFerrari could look like.

Few details are known on the future LaFerrari EvoXX up to this point, but we expect to see a treatment similar to what we saw with the 599XX Evolution . Translated, this mean we will see some aerodynamic improvements, some white racing strips plus a different rear wing with two flaps.

Next to the exterior changes, the EvoXX version will most likely deliver a few more horsepower and will be lighter than the standard version. Ferrari will also add an updated suspension and race-inspired brakes.

Expect the new LaFerrari EVOXX to arrive sometime in the upcoming months. We’ll keep you updated as the EvoXX becomes clearer.
