Ferrari LaFerrari supercar going wild with hybrid power


Ferrari has finally unveiled its new supercar, which is the successor to the Enzo model. Unlike other Ferrari supercars, the new Ferrari LaFerrari supercar gets its horses from a hybrid powertrain. That means you can put metal to petal more often now without haven’t to worry about running out of gas.

The new Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid supercar is stunningly designed with design cues from the Enzo model. It is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine producing 789 horsepower at 9,000 rpm, and couple with an electric motor to produce another 160 horsepower. So the total power output when both motors are firing at the same time is 950 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. According to Ferrari, the LaFerrari supercar can blast from 0-62 mph in under three seconds, and reach a top speed of 217 mph.

To further increase energy efficiency, the Ferrari LaFerrari features a HY-KERS system (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) that recharges the battery pack through regenerative braking or by using the engine. With the new electric motor and a battery pack mounted in the center (308 pounds), the supercar weighs in at 2,767 pounds. This gives a 41/59 weight distribution.

The Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid supercar has just debut at the Geneva Motor Show today, and it already has a price tag on it, which is around €1.3 ($1.69) million.
