Scuderia’s Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso has helped tuned the newest supercar in the company’s lineup, the impressive Ferrari LaFerrari.
Fernando Alonso can be seen, in the video posted below, driving a camouflage prototype of the LaFerrari, which was known back than as either the F70 or the F150. Alonso has spent several months helping to fine tune the handling, the driving position and the control locations, so we can say that the supercar has been designed for his needs.
“I am always happy to spend a few days in Maranello. Apart from working on the car and being in close contact with the team, sometimes I’m able to see some of the production departments which are the heart of the company. This time I met up with people who are never in the limelight, but they have an incredible love for their work”, said Alonso.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari LaFerrari has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model 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). The total output stands at 963 HP (708 kW) and it’s enough to allow the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). 499 units of the LaFerrari will be produced and each one will cost 1,3 million euros.
