Ferrari unveiled the new LaFerrari supercar at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where it also met its biggest competitor: the new McLaren P1.
The new LaFerrari is powered by a hybrid 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 — 800 delivered by the V-12 engine and 163 by the electric motors — and will sprint the supercar from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and up to a top speed of more than 217 mph.
