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.

A design masterpiece like the LaFerrari required lots of work and tons of concept versions that never made it to production. The work on the new supercar started years ago and it evolved with each year passing by. The Concept Manta revealed in this video shows how the LaFerrari looked almost two years ago. It has been displayed at the Ferrari Exhibition where YouTube user, Marchettino, already had the chance to be.

He learned that Ferrari has developed nine different concepts for the LaFerrari, but just two have been produced in 1-to-1 scale: this F150 Manta and the LaFerrari of course. We don’t know about you, but we find Manta a pretty interesting concept and LaFerrari would still have been a cool car if its design would have remained in this stage.

Enjoy the video, as this is a truly unique opportunity, since most automotive manufacturers never show the development processes of their vehicles.

Ferrari has described the LaFerrari hypercar as the "maximum expression of excellence" from the Prancing Horse, an assertion that we’re not disagreeing with by any means.

And while Ferrari was beyond successful in unveiling the LaFerrari at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, what preceded it was insane amounts of buzz, anticipation and overall anxiousness to see the hypercar live and in person.

It came with leaked photos and spy videos, things that aren’t uncommon in the industry but nonetheless drew frustration from the folks of Ferrari who tried extra hard to conceal the hypercar before its Geneva debut.

Well, the Italian automaker is making up for it with the release of a behind-the-scenes video of the LaFerrari, featuring the hypercar getting filmed for its Geneva debut. How very nice of them.

The video, which lasts for a little over a minute-and-a-half, gives us a look at what happens when an automaker makes all the preparations needed to ensure that such a hotly anticipated debut goes as well as planned. And as always, the car looks absolutely stunning, which everybody will definitely agree on.

For all who wondered throughout months regarding this hypercar, this video will more than make up for all those sleepless nights. Enjoy it the best you can, fellas.

Just a few days ago, we reported that the newLaFerrari supercar will be on display at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello as a part of the "Ferrari Supercar. Technology. Design. Myth" exhibition. Today, the exhibition officially opened its doors and will stay like this until September 30th.

Next to the new LaFerrari supercar, visitors will also be able to admire other great supercars offered by the Italian company, including the 250 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo, GTO Evoluzione, F40 Competizione, 599XX, FXX and many more.

At the same exhibition, visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about the entire process from the car’s initial conception to the final approval, and they will have the opportunity to see two full-scale models showing the car in various stages of its development process.

Until you have the chance to arrive in Maranello, watch this video to get an idea of what the new Ferrari exhibition has to offer.

After years of speculation, the successor of the legendary Ferrari Enzo is finally out. The supercar made its world debut today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it comes with a rather unexpected surprise: its name!

Previous rumors suggested the model could be called either F70 or F150, but Ferrari decided to go with something odd: LaFerrari! No, it is not a joke!

Why did the company make such a radical decision on the name? Well, the answer is offered by Ferrari’s President, Luca di Montezemolo himself who declared: "because it is the maximum expression of what defines our company – excellence." While we appreciate his answer, we still have to admit the name sounds a little bit silly.

Everything else on the new LaFerrari is also a big surprise, starting with its exterior design language and up to the innovative HY-KERS system used for the first time in a production version Ferrari.

Updated 03/22/2013: Ferrari has unveiled a new behind-the-scenes video revealing how the official video for the new LaFerrari have been filmed.

Updated 04/08/2013: Ferrari has unveiled a new video featuring Fernando Alonso behind the wheel of the new LaFerrari supercar.

Ferrari LaFerrari

Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new LaFerrari is going to hold the front page for many weeks. Today, Ferrari announced that more than one thousand customers placed request for the new supercar, despite its huge price of more than $1 million, which is still unconfirmed.

Still, Ferrari will not build more than 499 units in an attempt to keep it exclusive. The company also announced that the LaFerrari is "an extraordinary car, destined to our collectors," so, if you were planning to buy one, but you don’t have an large number of Prancing Horses in your garage you have to forget about it!

As a reminder, the new LaFerrari uses a hybrid system that delivers a total of 963 horsepower. It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and from 0 to 186 mph in just 15 seconds. Top speed is limited to 217 mph.

Ferrari impressed the world with its new LaFerrari supercar that it unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. For those of you who didn’t have the chance to be in Geneva, YouTube user, Marchettino, prepared a surprise: a video of the new supercar shot on the show floor.

The video reveals the supercar on both the exterior and the interior, so you will have the chance to admire the amazing design language and the carbon-fiber-wrapped cabin.

As a reminder, the LaFerrari features a hybrid system that combines a 6.3-liter V-12 engine with two electric motors for a total output of 963 horsepower. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and up to a top speed of more than 217 mph.

The problem is that the new LaFerrari will be limited to only 499 units and will be priced at an astonishing €1.3 million (about $1.7 million at the current exchange rates). It has been rumored that most of the units have already been spoken for.

The unveiling of the Ferrari LaFerrari was met with widespread adulation from all over the world, including in Germany where one aftermarket company didn’t waste time releasing a concept rendering of what the LaFerrari would look like if it got its hands on one.

German tuner, DMC, took to Facebook to show its fans its concept rendering of the supercar. It even came up with a name for it: LaQuattro.

Unfortunately, DMC, like everybody else, will likely have to wait before it can get its hands on the LaFerrari. But knowing how the aftermarket brand works and the reputation it has established as one of the best supercar tuners in the world, don’t be surprised if it somehow gets its hands on a LaFerrari soon.

And when it does, this concept rendering of the "LaQuattro" will more than likely be more than just a figment of our imaginations. Here’s to hoping this actually happens.

We’ll update this review once DMC releases the information on the LaQuattro.
