Ferrari LaFerrari Hits 372 Kmph On An Autobahn - Video
by IndianAuto Team |
The Ferrari LaFerrari is among the fastest models from the Italian luxury sports car marque. Recently, a video which shows a Ferrari LaFerrari being driven at 372 kmph on an open highway has been released.
First, let’s have a look at the video.
The Ferrari LaFerrari is claimed to be capable of accelerating from a standstill to 300 kmph in only 15 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 350 kmph. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are few vehicles operating on the highway. Therefore, the driver has grabbed this “marvellous opportunity” to push a white Ferrari LeFerarri to 372 kmph, which is 22 kmph faster in comparison to its claimed top speed.
As can be seen in the video, the driver uses his smartphone to record the video. He can be seen having just one of his hands on the steering wheel while the supercar is running at over 350 kmph. Therefore, besides showing the impressive performance of the vehicle, the video also indicates that the car has an excellent road grip and high speed stability. All said and done, while this autobahn has no limit on the speed, the driver broke the traffic rules by using his mobile phone while driving.
Introduced seven years ago, the Ferrari LaFerrari is the first hypercar and also the first car to be powered by a hybrid powertrain from the Italian auto brand. This Ferrari keeps under its hood a massive 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 gasoline burner that works in tandem with two electric motors. The electric motor provides the power to the driven wheels and the other powers the ancilliaries. All the three power sources can together generate 963 PS against 900 Nm. The transmission duties are undertaken by a 7-speed DCT. The vehicle is claimed to speed up from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 3 seconds.
The Ferrari LaFerrari is the first hypercar from the Italian luxury sports automaker.
Only 499 units of the Ferrari LaFerrari, which were priced at more than EUR 1 million, were put on sale and they were all sold out by 2013-end. Not until 2016 was the last unit of this supercar put up for auction for raising charity to support the affected in the earthquake-hit Italy. The 500th unit was sold for an impressive EUR 8.3 million.
