EVO Takes the Ferrari LaFerrari to the Track

by Paul Strauss

EVO recently had the chance to get behind the seat of Ferrari’s entry into the hybrid hypercar arena, the LaFerrari. Driven by a massive naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine, paired with a 164hp electric motor, the car can push out as much as 963 horsepower, and 664 lb-ft. of torque.

Unlike other hybrid hypercars, the LaFerrari’s electric system is there solely to fill in any gaps in the engine’s torque, and to augment off-the-line performance. In fact, the car has no electric-only mode. Described by reviewer Dickie Meaden as the “Ferrari 458’s big, badass brother,” it clearly demonstrates its true Ferrari DNA, and just from watching the video, it’s clearly a more visceral driving experience than its biggest competitors.

Now we really want to see a proper race between the McLaren P1, the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferrari LaFerrari.
