Ferrari looks to take on Porsche, McLaren
It looks like the hybrid supercar wars are on, and Ferrari has fired the latest shot. Porsche revealed the
went official with the P1
, and now Ferrari has the… LaFerrari.
The LaFerrari is the successor to the Enzo and brings with it an 800hp V12 engine that revs to an eye popping 9,000 rpm. Its peak torque of 516 lb-ft is reached at a "lower" 6,750 rpm. In addition to the V12 monster behind the driver, the LaFerrari also features a 163hp (199 lb-ft) electric motor.
With all of this power on tap, Ferrari says that the LaFerrari can scoot to 60 mph in less than three seconds and hit 124 mph in under seven seconds. The LaFerrari will keep on accelerating at an astonishing rate (186 mph in 15 seconds) until it reaches a top speed of 217 mph.
Not much else is known about this crazy hybrid other than the fact that is has 41/59 (front/rear) weight distribution, 19" wheels up front, and 20" wheels in the back.
As we get more info on the LaFerrari, we'll keep you posted.

Yes and no.
What has kept me from Ferrari in the past was the obscene maintenance requirements. One weekend of racing is going to cost me about $10k in brakes alone, not to mention the mandatory (if you want to keep warranty intact) engine tear downs.
Quite simply, they were at b|tch to maintain. New models actually have less service intervals, so that's a plus.
For the guys who buy one to stick in their garage, then yes, not a big deal. But for those of us who actually want to drive them, then it's a HUGE issue.

I hear this from others too but a car like this isn't generally driven a lot to worry about maintenance costs. Personally, I'd drive the piss out of it if it were mine but I'm weird like that.
