The video we are about to show you puts us in an awkward position. On the one hand, we admire the courage of this LaFerrari owner for driving his hyper car the way it’s meant to be driven and we think he’s a cool guy. On the other, as members of the press we should condemn hooliganism on public roads and ask you not to be inspired by it.
Anyway, we let you watch the video and make up your own mind about it. We leave you with the advice that you best do this sort of thing on a track or at least some empty parking lot. Even in this low-quality footage you can feel the traction control working hard to keep the LaFerrari in check and prevent it from spinning out of control:
And since no post about cars is complete without at least some facts and figures, the Ferrari LaFerrari boasts a 6.0 liter V12 engine with KERS system developing a total of 960 horsepower which is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission via an electronic differential that works in tandem with a five-way traction control system. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 2.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 350 km/h where the limited kicks in. But some say the real figure is actually 370.
