VIDEO: Ferrari LaFerrari is One Car, Two Names, Double the Price

ferrari-laferrari-1

We already told you about Lamborghini’s cat and mouse game with rappers, and now its arch-rival Ferrari is just making it easy for emcees with the newly unveiled, rap-by-numbers Ferrari LaFerrari. Nah, we didn’t stutter and it’s okay to laugh; that name sounds fake as hell to us, too. The follow-up to the Italian carmaker’s doubled-up “Ferrari Enzo Ferrari” is another high-spec exotic flagship that’s made for music.

Along with its made for rap name, the Prancing Horse’s latest creation has an around $1.3 million asking price and performance that laughs at most supercars. Then again, the LaFerrari is clearly in hypercar territory, easily eclipsing the 0-124 mph mark in less time than it takes for most people’s cars to hit 0-60. That’s what you get when you combine the company’s most potent 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor for a total of 950 horsepower. It’s the first gasoline-electric hybrid Ferrari road car with an energy regenerating HY-KERS system, like what’s found on newer Formula One racing cars.

While the name sounds like a bad joke, you can’t argue with the curvy, form-follows-function beauty of this expected performance crown wearer’s carbon fiber body. Still, McLaren and Porsche‘s upcoming million dollar hybrids are also coming for that throne, leading Ferrari to go all out with LaFake… er, LaFerrari’s construction and cost. Because when you’re a wealthy plutocrat these days, the $250-500,000 supercar range is now for frat girls, and paying double what the Enzo launched at is nothing.

Yeah, it isn’t as ultra exclusive as Lamborghini’s 1-of-3 run for the Veneno, but you can cop three LaFerraris for the Lambo’s nearly $4 million price tag. How does you and your boys having a three versus one horse race against the Italian bull, sound? Don’t wait too long to get in line, though, as only 499 will be built and they’re all rumored to have already been claimed. Buyers have been waiting a long time for the hypercar formerly known as the F70/F150, leading to high demand. Figures like a 227 mph top speed, 0-60 in comfortably under three seconds and 0-124 mph in seven have a way of doing that. So, even though Ferrari obviously fired their naming department, the designers and engineers just got a nice bonus.

If you’re a gear head, or just like looking at car porn, Ferrari has a bunch of videos up on their YouTube channel.
