LaFerrari

In 1984 there was the Ferrari 288 GTO. Housing a mid-engine twin-turbo V8 that produced 400 hp and 366 lb·ft of torque, it was one of the first, truly modern Ferrari’s. In 1987 came the F40, a car that some consider to be one of the greatest cars ever build and the last pure Ferrari. It used a derivative of the engine used in the 288 GTO, and made 478 hp and 425 lb·ft of torque. The F50 debuted in 1996, and with a naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V12, power was bumped to 513 hp and 347 lb·ft of torque. It was also capable of taking the car to a top speed of 194 mph. In 2002 the Ferrari Enzo tore into the motoring press. It looked like nothing else on the road and like the F50 before it, utilized a V12 making 651 hp and 485 lb·ft of torque.

It’s now 2013 and Ferrari has just pulled the curtain back on its newest creation, the LaFerrari. It utilizes a HY-KERS system and a carbon-fibre chassis and is stunning from just about every angle. Click through to check out Ferrari’s newest creation.

    Stunnning? Yes. Pretty? No. That is not easy on the eyes. I’m sure it goes like stink, though.

      For me, I wouldn’t call it ugly but nonetheless, my point would be about the looks as well. The front gives an early 90s vibe–looks dated. Well there’s nothing wrong with that, but I was expecting something modern–something unseen. The rest though is spectacular.

    My guess is when engineering a car of this caliber, “form” generally takes a backseat to “function.” Although I think the LaFerrari is waaay more attractive than the Enzo. Granted….I be giddy at the prospect of just sitting in either car.
