La Ferrari, first seen in 2013 is Ferrari’s first hybrid production car of which the manufacturers say just 499 examples will be built.
This hybrid is based on the Enzo and track FXX models.
The carbon fibre moncoque was developed by Rory Bryne who was responsible for the design of Micheal Schumacher’s Formula One Championship winning cars at Benetton and Ferrari.
La Ferrari features an in house designed body, the first Ferrari road car body since the Bertone styled body for the Dino 308 GT4 not to feature any input from Pinninfarina.
La Ferrari is fitted with a 789hp V12 and a HY KERS, Hybrid Kinetic Energy Recovery System, battery powered electric motor that will deliver an additional 160hp for short periods, making La Ferrari the most powerful street legal Ferrari ever built.
Ferrari quoted performance figures include a rest to 62 mph time in under 3 seconds and top speed of 217 mph.
The price of La Ferrari is said to be more than GBP £1 million / USD $1.69 million.
