All The Details Of Ferrari’s Enzo Replacement: LaFerrari

Ferrari has unveiled their much-anticipated Enzo replacement at the Geneva International Motor Show and they’ve simply called it: LaFerrari. ‘La’ means ‘the’ in Italian, so for goodness sake don’t call it “the LaFerrari”; especially when such a name is signifying that this unconventional, hybrid hypercar Ferrari defies even the most-brazen conventions laid down by its F40, F50 and Enzo brethren.

The new Ferrari hypercar is making all the headlines because it has a hybrid, KERS-inspired drivetrain at its heart. LaFerrari combines the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine in the world: a 6.3-litre V8 that produces 588 kW at 9 250 r/min, with a 120 kW electric motor in the mix as well. Their combined peak is a dizzying 708 kW while total torque is more than 900 Nm at 7 000 r/min.

The electric motor delivers an instant whack of 270 Nm of torque of course.

The performance figures are 0 – 100 km/h in under 3-seconds and a 0 – 200 km/h time of less than 7-seconds. LaFerrari’s Fiorano track time is also 5-seconds quicker than an Enzo and 3-seconds quicker than the F12 Berlinetta, which it now displaces as Ferrari’s fastest ever road car. The top speed is quoted as over 350 km/h.

It combines this performance with a claimed 220g/km of CO2 emissions in hybrid mode.

LaFerrari is all about cutting edge technology and a ballistic need for speed. Both the hybrid system and active aerodynamics integrate with the cars electronic systems, including F1-trac, E-diff, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres.

There are actually two electric motors, one powering the rear wheels, and the other powering the ancillaries. The batteries weigh just 60 kg and they recharged under braking and via excess torque from the V12 engine. The driving motor is linked to the twin-clutch gearbox, providing instant torque.

The lithium-ion battery pack attached under the floor plan helps give the car a 35 mm lower centre of gravity than the Ferrari Enzo.

Ferrari wanted to negate the weight problems normally prevalent with hybrid systems. The driver’s seat is fixed with steering wheel and pedals that adjust instead. Four different types of carbon fibre can be found in the chassis courtesy of F1-inspired design and production methods.

Aerodynamics on LaFerrari are active, with front and rear diffusers, an underbody guide vane and rear spoiler all reacting and deploying automatically, generating down force without creating excess drag. In fact, the entire design was honed in the F1 team’s wind tunnel, and picks up where the Enzo left off with a low nose and gaping air intakes. The lower front wing, which appears to hang on a single strut, is a nod to Ferrari’s current F1 car, while the long roof flows seamlessly into the cars prominent back end.

Just 499 will be made and it will cost £1-million. Welcome to the most advanced Ferrari ever.
