Here’s some very nice footage of the new LaFerrari hyper car strutting its stuff at the Mugello race track. And the first thing you notice is that it is not red. It is very refreshing to see this magnificent creation in this shade of yellow (giallo). It kind of brings out details of the styling better than red.
Start-up, revs, fly-bys, this vid has got them all. Enjoy:
The LaFerrari is the first car in Ferrari history to be powered by the HY-KERS system. The ICE represents the pinnacle of engine development and research, with a 6262 cc V12 that punches out 800 CV and revs to a maximum of 9,250 rpm, a record for an engine of this displacement. It also features a very high 13.5:1 compression ratio and a high specific output equal to 128 CV per litre. The engine is coupled with a 120 Kw (163 CV) electric motor, giving it a combined power output of 963 CV.
