2013 LaFerrari launched

The 2013 LaFerrari is finally official and has been officially revealed by the Italian company this week at the Geneva Motor Show. The latest supercar from Maranello is motivated by a V12 6266cc power unit capable of developing 800 HP at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 700 Nm at 6,750 rpm. It also comes with an electric motor which will provide it with an additional 163 HP and 270 Nm, resulting in an impressive combined output of 963 HP (708 kW). The entire horsepower is transferred to the ground via a 7-speed DCT which enables the LaFerrari to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than three seconds, en route to a top speed of more than 217 mph (350 km/h).

It has been fitted with carbon ceramic disc brakes by Brembo measuring 398x223x36mm at the front ant 380x253x24 at the back. The vehicle is 4702mm long, 1992mm wide and 1116mm tall, featuring a 2665mm wheelbase and tipping the scales at 2,766 lbs (1,255 kg). It sits on 19-inch front alloys shod in 265/30 rubbers and larger 20-inch wheels covered by 345/30 tires.

The HY-KERS system weighs 308 lbs (140 kg) while its battery pack accounts for 136 lbs (62 kg) of that weight. The centrally-mounted batteries are charged with the help of regenerative braking as well as when the engine generates excess torque.

Ferrari will only make 499 units and most of them have already been accounted for. Some say it will go on sale this summer at a starting price of 1.3 million euros or $1.69 million.
