Ferrari LaFerrari, the 1 million Pound car

We know what you are thinking: red! Here is the latest news on the Ferrari LaFerrari, the 1 million Pound car.

The odyssey of Ferrari began in 1939, when Enzo Ferrari quit Alfa Corse to set the foundations of his own company, the Auto Avio Costruzioni. The first Ferrari emerged in 1947, a sports car that encompassed all the passion and tenacity of its creator. Today, Ferrari is a prestigious brand that triggers the idea of a fast, mean, sleek, red car that made history.

Ferrari LaFerrari is indeed one mean hybrid super-car. First presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the almost 500 pieces were sold well before 2014. If you’ve got 1 million Pounds Sterling to spare, then you should really consider acquiring this beauty for your collection, because fit to compete in the Formula One with its high-end technology, it is most probably competing for the place of best sports car in the world and best road vehicles ever to have been created. The bad news is that… for now it’s completely sold out.

Let’s take a look under the hood! The top speed of LaFerrari is said to be 227mph, with a capacity to reach 62mph in less than 3 seconds. What does that? The 6.3-litre V12 engine, which is assisted electrically by Ferrari’s system HY-KERS. This creates a total output in power of 950bhp.

There are rumors of famous Fernando Alonso getting behind the wheel of the LaFerrari XX race version, which can reportedly lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 6m 35s.

As for the design, the LaFerrari is over 4 meters long and 2 meters wide, includes electric dampers and an EF1-Trac F1 traction control system.

For those of you who wish to remain more… realistic, there are International car hire companies that can give you the chance to test some pretty awesome, if not 1 million Pounds expensive, vehicles.
