The 2013 Ferrari LaFerrari (abbreviated as simply LaFerrari) is a limited production hybrid hypercar that debuted in Forza Motorsport 5 as part of the eponymous LaFerrari Car Pack and has returned for all subsequent main installments, including Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.

The LaFerrari, internally named F70 and whose name means "The Ferrari" in most Romance languages in the context that it is the "definitive" Ferrari car, is the successor to the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari supercar and is Ferrari's first mild hybrid model, as well as the first Ferrari since the Bertone-styled Dino 308 GT4 of 1973 to be developed solely in-house without any input from Pininfarina. It is also Ferrari's fastest road-legal model ever made, with a power output of 950 hp (708 kW) from a hybrid V12 powerplant enabling it to reach 100 mph (161 km/h) in about 5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph (349 km/h).[1]

Only 499 units were built, but a 500th one was built and auctioned off in the wake of the August 2016 Central Italy earthquake. In 2016, an open-top version, named the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, was also revealed and produced with only 209 units, the last unit of which was auctioned off in 2017 for US$10 million.[2]

Descriptions

Just when you think the bar couldn’t be raised higher, leave it to Ferrari to raise it even further. Redundant or not, it’s name is simple and elegant: LaFerrari. The notoriety of the one-word name is warranted as LaFerrari will replace the legendary Enzo. At its heart is the 6.3-liter V-12 from the F12berlinetta, which previously reigned as the most powerful Ferrari road car to date. LaFerrari boasts somewhere in the neighborhood of 950 horsepower, and laps Fiorano a full three seconds faster than the F12 – and an astonishing five seconds faster than the Enzo. An additional 59 horsepower are gleaned from the F12’s V-12 via a lighter crankshaft, variable-length intake runners, and hydroformed Inconel headers. As the first hybrid from Maranello, an electric motor generating approximately 160 more ponies is attached rearward of the seven-speed automated-manual transmission.

Externally the lines of LaFerrari contain active diffusers, guide vanes on the underbody, and an active rear spoiler. These elements all provide downforce while reducing drag. LaFerrari is hand-built from varying degrees of lightweight carbon-fiber among its brethren grand prix cars. Even the seats are molded into the tub, and the steering wheel and pedals adjust to accommodate a driver’s height. So yes, LaFerrari comes to you; if you are lucky enough to be one of the 499 on the invitation-to-own list.

Characteristics

The Ferrari LaFerrari uses a new variation of the Ferrari F140 6.3 L (6,262 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine, codenamed F140 FE, with power output rated at 789 hp (588 kW) and torque rated at 516 ft·lb (700 N·m). New to Ferrari is the use of hybrid technology to improve performance: the LaFerrari features a kinetic energy recovery system (HY-KERS) unit, which adds 161 hp (120 kW) and 148 ft·lb (201 N·m) of torque. The combined power output of the car comes out at 950 hp (708 kW) and the torque over 664 ft·lb (900 N·m), although Forza consistently displays these figures as 963 hp (718 kW) and 663 ft·lb (900 N·m). The engine has a redline set at 9,000 rpm and a fuel cutoff at 9,500 rpm, making it among one of the highest-revving road cars.

With a minimum weight of 2767 lb (1255 kg) and a kerb weight of 3495 lb (1585 kg)[5], the LaFerrari has a minimum power-to-weight ratio of 599 hp (447 kW) per tonne, although this weight figure consistently appears as 3031 lb (1375 kg) in the Forza series, which then, in tandem with the in-game power output of 963 hp (718 kW), results in a power-to-weight ratio of 700 hp (522 kW) per tonne.

The Ferrari LaFerrari uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission and features active aerodynamics and design cues pulled from the Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari 458 Italia, and Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina one-off concept car.

The Ferrari LaFerrari manages a 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) time of less than 2.9 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, and a top speed exceeding 217 mph (350 km/h), which the Forza renditions of the car always exceed with the sole exception of the Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the car, which is limited to only 215 mph (346 km/h). This speed is greatly exceeded by the Forza Horizon 3 rendition of the car, with an unrealistically high 257 mph (413 km/h). It is also the second fastest road-legal car around Ferrari's Fiorano test circuit, behind the Ferrari 488 Pista.

Performance

The LaFerrari is currently the fastest road-legal Ferrari car in the series, with a powerful, high-revving hybrid V12 powerplant giving access to more power and torque across the powerband in comparison with previous Ferrari supercars/hypercars. It shows the hallmark performance traits of a hypercar: astoundingly quick acceleration (0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in only 5.2 seconds), sharp handling, and decent braking. However, it is a bit lacking in the top speed department, hitting only at most 222 mph (357 km/h), which is later downgraded with each Forza title with one exception. Against the McLaren P1, the LaFerrari only has a slightly sharper turning radius and a slightly better launch and acceleration up to 186 mph (300 km/h), after which the LaFerrari's acceleration greatly slows down. When compared to the Porsche 918 Spyder, the 918 only has superior acceleration, launch, and braking due to being AWD and making better use of active aerodynamics, but handles worse due to being much heavier.

In Forza Horizon 3, the LaFerrari's stock top speed was greatly increased to 257 mph (413 km/h), which is only marginally higher than that of the P1 (255 mph (410 km/h)), but the LaFerrari takes much longer to reach that speed, especially given the required amount of room needed to even reach 250 mph (402 km/h) safely. This version of the LaFerrari is much faster when compared to other Forza renditions of the car and the real life rendition of the car, but has worse braking performance than previous renditions of the car. A top speed-tuned LaFerrari can reach 268 mph (432 km/h) on normal roads, although upgraded Ferrari 458 Speciales are considered a better choice due to the ability to reach 270 mph (435 km/h) much more quickly.

Trivia

  • In Forza Motorsport 5, the LaFerrari's front bonnet and engine cover cannot be opened in Forzavista. This was changed in Forza Motorsport 6 in order to allow the LaFerrari to be fully explorable.
  • In Forza Horizon 3, the LaFerrari is always the first car the player does a Head-to-Head race against, done during the Drivatar Lineup tutorial before the player can get to choose his/her first car.
  • In Forza Motorsport 7, the LaFerrari's active rear vents do not function at all.
