A Prancing Horse and the Holy Trinity

25 August 2022

Ferrari LaFerrari, project name F150 was a limited production mid-engine mild hybrid sports car.

Built between June 2013 and August 2018.

Ferrari built 710 Ferrari LaFerrari. From June 2013 to January 2016, Ferrari built 500 Coupés, and between October 2016 and August 2018, they made 210 Apertas.

LaFerrari was the first full hybrid produced by Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari road car at the time whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 per cent.

The La Ferrari has tones of the late 1960s Ferrari sports prototypes such as the 330 P4.

Over the years, Ferrari has built four supercars previously. Firstly, the 288 GTO in 1984, followed by the F40 in 1987, with the F50 arriving in 1995, the Enzo in 2002, and the LaFerrari in 2013.

And it appears Ferrari is going to continue with that game-plan. Within the company’s plan to reveal15 new cars between 2023 and 2026, it will launch a successor to the LaFerrari.

Ferrari Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Enrico Galliera said its arrival is imminent.

Gianmaria Fulgenzi, Chief Ferrari Product Development Officer, said, ‘We strongly believe the hybrid to be the current technology that can further increase performance,’ Fulgenzi said earlier in his presentation. Ferrari also confirmed that it wouldn’t make any more hybrid V-12s, indicating strongly that the next supercar will be a hybrid V-8.

The motor car from the Prancing Horse’s Ferrari LaFerrari completed the Holy Trinity with the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
