The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently announced its plans to introduce a more powerful version of the LaFerrari, which will rival the mighty Bugatti Veyron.
We have already seen the production version of the LaFerrari just a few weeks ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere, and we thought that that will be the last time we will hear about it, unless one lucky owner will crash it, but it seems that the carmaker isn’t feeling the same. According to the car manufacturer, the Ferrari LaFerrari will receive a more powerful version over the following months.
Ferrari says that its newest creation will be able to produce more than 1,200 horsepower from an upgraded hybrid powertrain, which will place it against the Bugatti Veyron, in terms of top speed. The official rival was also confirmed by the company’s boss, Luca di Montezemolo. The chairman wants the LaFerrari to be the newest fastest ever production car on the globe and he is able to do everything in order for the model to become real. Even if the Ferrari LaFerrari in its new powerful version was officially announced, the company didn’t release any powertrain or performance details just yet.
As a quick reminder, the regular version of the LaFerrari is powered by a 6,262cc V12 engine, producing 800 HP (588 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 700 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, mated to an electric motor, with 163 HP (120 kW) and 270 Nm of torque (199 lb-ft). Total output is 963 HP (708 kW), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in less than 3 seconds, and a 350 km/h (217 mph) top speed. Prices for the regular LaFerrari start at 1,3 million euros and only 499 units will be produced.
