Hybrid power increases efficiency. Efficiency can be realised as extra economy or extra power. Guess which Ferrari chose for its £1.15 million range-topper?
The LaFerrari has an almighty V12 combustion engine that, on its own, produces an extremely healthy 790bhp at a screaming 9000rpm.
To that is coupled a motor-generator unit that can add, during times of peak acceleration, another 160bhp. That’s 950bhp in all. The motor harvests regeneration in times when you don’t have the road or track space to use the full beans.
But thanks to Ferrari’s expertise in suspension design, electronic stability controls and aerodynamics, you can use more of the astounding capability than you might expect. If you can afford one, that is.
