[VIDEO] See the Ferrari LaFerrari on the Nurburgring
Ferrari has recently taken its newest and most impressive supercar up-to-date to the famous German track, the Nurburgring, where the model will try to become faster than its rivals.

The Ferrari LaFerrari has been officially presented to the public in March, this year, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
