Enzo'sLegacy The Next Chapter..

By: Douglas Nasworthy


Even though Ferrari could not have invented the concept of the supercar, it should have credit for trying to keep the flame alive with a succession of these limited-run exotics dating all the method back to the 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO F40.

Now comes the Ferrari LaFerrari, the 963 hp mid-engine V-12 successor to the Enzo. Why the apparently redundant name? Ferrari's chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, states the automobile is the purest expression of Ferrari-- so giving it a name that translates to simply "the Ferrari" makes good sense.

Made of 4 various kinds of carbon fiber, the sleek body features butterfly-style doors and was designed entirely in-house by Ferrari's chief designer, Flavio Manzoni. The sweeping bodywork integrates the aero modern technology and lots of styling elements taking from Ferrari's Formula 1 program, including the front splitter-- which resembles the wing on an F/1 racer's nosecone-- and the rear spoiler and fog light, which take their cues from competition vehicles.

The 6.3-liter V-12, which is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, gets a help from HY-KERS, Ferrari's hybrid kinetic-energy recovery system (motivated by the KERS system used in F/1 racing). The system recovers energy from braking and the excess torque of the engine, storing it in a 132 lb.

The integrated 963 hp (the engine contributes 800 hp, the HY-KERS 163 hp) enables the LaFerrari to speed up to 124 miles per hour in less than 7 seconds and provides the vehicle a top speed over 217 mph. It is the fastest road-going Ferrari in the business's history.
