2013 Geneva: LaFerrari – A hybrid with 949 hp – BMW BLOG
At the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, Ferarri unveiled their first hybrid model. Simply dubbed LaFerarri, the successor of Enzo outputs 949 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, with 789 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque coming from a 6.3-liter V-12 engine with a righteous 9,250 RPM redline and a 13.5:1 compression ratio.
Additional 161 horsepower comes from a larger electric motor while the smaller motor powers the car’s ancillary systems. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed DCT.
LaFerrari’s batteries weigh just 132 pounds and are mounted to the chassis.
To keep the weight down, the chassis is made from several composite materials including carbon fiber and Kevlar. Ferrari didn’t reveal the curb weight of the car, but it’s expected to be around 2,800 pounds.
