Code named the F150, the car that replaces the Enzo at the top of the Ferrari hierarchy made its debut today at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, easily stealing the limelight from all other debuts.

We can confirm that its powertrain is a hybrid setup that pairs Ferrari’s 6.3-liter V-12 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch 'box with its HY-KERS hybrid setup to boost output and lower emissions.

The system consists of two electric motors, one mounted to the gearbox and sending drive to the rear wheels and the other used to take some of the load off the engine by powering auxiliary devices.

Peak output of the combined system is a staggering 963 horsepower, as measured in metric figures. In good ol’ American numbers that’s still 950 horsepower to play with. Torque comes in at more than 660 pound-feet, with the final figure not yet confirmed.

Ferrari hasn’t given final performance numbers just yet, but says the La Ferrari will reach 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 217 mph (expected to be 230 mph). The car’s closest rival, the McLaren P1, which also debuts in Geneva, has similar specs but has its top speed limited to 217 mph. Another area were the La Ferrari is said to outmatch the P1 is in the 0-186 mph sprint, which the Ferrari should do in 15 seconds versus the McLaren’s quoted 17 seconds. Fiorano lap in less than 1:20

Ferrari boasts a lap time of its Fiorano test track of less than 1:20, which is 5.0 seconds quicker than the Enzo and 3.0 seconds quicker than the F12 Berlinetta.

The La Ferrari follows in a long line of ‘special series’ cars from the famous Italian sports car manufacturer. From the GTO of the 1980s right up to the Enzo supercar launched last decade, Ferrari’s special series cars have always been heavy hitters and some of the best examples of the transfer of technology from Formula One to the road.

In the case of the latest car, two of the headline technologies is the new hybrid system, Ferrari’s first on one of its production cars, and a new carbon fiber monocoque developed by Ferrari’s F1 technical director Rory Byrne. According to Ferrari, the central structure displays 27 percent more torsional rigidity and 22 percent more beam stiffness than the Enzo’s already stiff core.

The structure features no less than four different types of carbon fiber, all hand-laminated and autoclave-cured in the racing department using the same design and production methods as the F1 car. This helped optimize the design: various functions were integrated (e.g. seats and battery compartment) into the chassis. The final curb weight, not confirmed yet, is expected to be around 2,800 pounds. Numerous benefits of hybrid tech

Purists may dislike the thought that Ferrari’s latest and greatest supercar is a hybrid, but the beauty of the system is that it not only cuts fuel consumption but it also allows for precise torque vectoring, traction control and brake force distribution. Ferrari claims a 10 percent reduction in the 0-124 mph sprint, along with a 40 percent reduction in emissions compared to a non-hybrid solution.

Ferrari have officially unveiled their replacement for the Ferrari Enzo at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. We have the first live photos! The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the most anticipated cars of the year. It’s amazing that the design has been kept such a closely guarded secret until now. We sent a photographer to capture the action.

The Ferrari LaFerrari gets a 6.3 liter V12 which is connected to an electric motor similar to the system on the McLaren P1. The Ferrari F150 V12 has an output of 800hp at 9.000 RPM and 700Nm at 7.000 RPM while its electric motor has a maximum output of 163hp and 270Nm of torque. That delivers a total combined power output of 963hp, allowing the new Ferrari Enzo to do 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.

The Ferrari LaFerrari is styled for maximum performance. It features a deep front vent, harking back to Ferrari’s iconic ‘F’ series cars. The sides are also sculpted with deep voids along the side flanks. In all, the design is exactly as we would expect for a halo model Ferrari.

The Ferrari LaFerrari is said to lap Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in less than 1 minute 20 seconds. That is five seconds quicker than the Enzo and more than three seconds quicker than the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Compared with the Ferrari Enzo, torsional rigidity is up 27 percent and longitudinal stiffness increases 22 percent, while weight goes down by 20 percent.

We can’t change the name, but Ferrari LaFerrari itself is definitely an attractive package!

F150 was the model # for the 2011 F1 car, so i guess that's where they're heading.
absolutely cannot wait to see this pitted agains the P1. Even in terms of design/styling that is a battle in itself. These hypercars are looking so much more other worldly than ever!

I pray that some magazine, god bless them; has a photo shoot with the P1, F150, and Veneno some time soon. Epic wallpaper material right there.

no doubt this will be an exceptional driver's car, however, a big part of me wishes they could return to making pretty cars again :oops: . Personally, I think their last good looking car was the 355 :mrgreen:

lol another FUGLY POS. Never thought i'd see the day when ferrari would look for styling cues from a corvette. WHO THE HELL CALLS THEIR CAR La____ LOLOL. Another wasteful tool for hawking key chains and slippers with a dancing horse.

All your forum arguments are invalidated. The LaFerrari is stupid-quick.

Larry Webster is in Italy right now, where he strapped our test equipment to the mighty LaFerrari. Let's just say that Ferrari's latest hypercar does not disappoint.

Without further ado...

LaFerrari - R&T Performance Test Results
0–30 mph: 1.1 seconds
0–60 mph: 2.4 seconds
0–100 mph: 4.7 seconds
0–150 mph: 9.8 seconds
Quarter Mile: 9.7 seconds @ 149.1 mph

In a nutshell, that's pretty quick. Quicker than both the Porsche 918 Spyder and Bugatti Veyron Supersport we tested.

Given these numbers, we assume that when you connect a VBOX to the Ferrari FXX K, a Wookiee in a Scuderia Ferrari firesuit magically appears in the passenger seat and the car simply makes the jump to hyperspace.

0-60mph 2.4secs!
That is blistering. *awaits race between LaFerrari P1 and 918*
