An expensive drag race has seen an epic battle between a Ferrari LaFerrari and a Bugatti Veyron.
Bugatti may have decided to finally stop producing the Veyron, in order to make room for its successor, the so-called Chiron, but that doesn’t mean that the model in question has lost all of its skills. It’s not at good in a drag race as one of the most impressive Ferraris ever put together, the LaFerrari, and this may come as a big surprise for most of you, but it stood pretty close to the hybrid supercar. Maybe the “driver factor” played a main role in the Italian vehicle coming in as a winner but, hey, at least it got beaten by a LaFerrari and not by a California, which is actually fine with me.
The LaFerrari is considered to be the spiritual successor of the Enzo. The model in question has made its public debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, along with one of its main rivals, the McLaren P1, being followed six month later by the Porsche 918 Spyder. The two-door coupe vehicle has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and it is packing a familiar 6.3 liter V12 engine, with 789 HP and 700 Nm of torque in this case. This is backed up by an electric motor with 161 HP. The total output stands at 950 HP and 900 Nm of torque, enough for a 0 – 100 km/h sprint made in less than 3s and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
