Rarely does an automaker let its customers actively participate in the development process of its most advanced new technology. The Ferrari Enzo-based FXX was different in every way, from its conception to its implementation. Ferrari invited its most loyal and enthusiastic customers to pay millions for the privilege of testing what was really a shiny development mule. Access to the exclusive FXX program did not even grant Ferrari’s top customers ownership of the cars.
Ferrari’s first hypercar, the LaFerrari, debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show as the successor to the Enzo, but in positioning only. Wedged behind its passenger compartment sits the FXX project’s 6.3-liter V-12 engine aided by a Formula 1-derived, 161-hp kinetic energy recovery system, or KERS. However, the LaFerrari’s KERS system was actually more advanced than that allowed at the time by the FIA. As such the LaFerrari is a hybrid rated at a combined 949 hp and 664 foot-pounds of torque. That explosive power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which helps the hypercar scream toward its 9,250 redline as it races to 100 mph in just 4.8 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 217 mph.
Wrapped around the mild-hybrid powertrain is an F1-grade carbon fiber monocoque structure that is nearly 30 percent more rigid than that used in the Enzo. Brembo-supplied carbon-ceramic disc brakes that tie into the regenerative system sit behind staggered 19-in. and 20-in. Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires made from a Ferrari-specific compound to make the most of the massive underhood power. The LaFerrari’s hyper-modern lines come from Flavio Manzoni within Ferrari’s in-house design department. The car’s silhouette echoes the Enzo, but its lines are more organic and graceful. Just 499 LaFerraris coupes were built.
Finished in Giallo Modena with Scuderia Ferrari door shields, a black roof, and stunning black leather interior with yellow accents and carbon fiber trim. Its Grigio alloy wheels sit in front of carbon ceramic brakes with color-matched painted calipers and features relatively uncommon body-color side mirrors. This breathtaking example of has covered less than 600 miles and presents in as-new condition throughout.
