Launched in 2013, the LaFerrari marks Ferrari’s first foray into the world of hybridised hypercars. Breaking the trend of the ‘F’ nomenclature, the car follows the roughly 10 year gap that separated the Enzo from the F50. Retaining the much-loved formula, Ferrari assisted their naturally-aspirated V-12 engine with 160 bhp and 200 lb-ft of torque from an electric motor. Combined the LaFerrari generates 950 bhp and 715 lb-ft of torque. Unlike its rivals systems that offer an electric-only mode, the electrical system has been designed to work at maximum output all of the time, as such creating a ‘torque-fill’ effect working in combination with the V-12.
Derived from Formula 1 technology, the LaFerrari regenerates energy at every given opportunity with the brakes, ABS, TCS and E-Diff recuperating any energy possible. As such the car produces more power and less weight than any of the hypercar ‘trilogy’, the LaFerrari would remain a firm poster car and fan favourite.
With an official build number of just 499 examples during the production window, the LaFerrari was sold exclusively to Ferrari’s best clients.
Finished in traditional Rosso Corsa with a Nero roof, the LaFerrari’s exterior theme is continued inside with seats trimmed in Rosso leather and matching red four-point harnesses. Options include red brake callipers, front suspension lifter, fire extinguisher, large size seats, and the aforementioned four-point harnesses.
Supplied new to its first owner in New Zealand in 2015, this example was used sparingly, covering just 700 miles before we purchased the car and imported it into the UK in March 2016.
From there we sold the car to its second and current owner in 2016, and the car has remained in our secure storage facility since.
Today this example is showing just 760 miles from new, it presents in wonderful condition throughout and is the archetypical example of Ferrari’s first hybrid hypercar.
