The impressive V12 engine powering the Ferrari LaFerrari has been recently put to the test on a dyno and this is offering us the chance to hear the 800 HP at 9,000 rpm.
The Ferrari LaFerrari may have been around ever since March this year, in an official way, and we might have seen it in a lot of environments, doing a lot of things, but the video posted below is one of the most interesting, even if it reveals just a part of the hybrid supercar, because we can actually see its V12 engine on the dyno, being tested, all the way up to 9,000 rpm, and the 800 HP can be heard.
The Ferrari LaFerrari may be a hybrid supercar but under its hood we can find a 6,262cc V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 800 HP (588 kW) at 9,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), available at 6,750 rpm.
