Renowned British journalist Chris Harris is back on DRIVE with a full review of the Ferrari LaFerrari supercar. Not a BMW related video, but without a doubt an interesting point of view on the innovative and futuristic LaFerrari.

At the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, Ferrari unveiled their first hybrid model. Simply dubbed LaFerarri, the successor of Enzo outputs 963 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, with 789 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque coming from a 6.3-liter V-12 engine with a righteous 9,250 RPM redline and a 13.5:1 compression ratio.

Additional 163 horsepower comes from a larger electric motor while the smaller motor powers the car’s ancillary systems. The KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine’s output level for a total of 963 PS and the total torque generated by the V12 ICE together with the electric motor being over 900 Nm (664 lb·ft)

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed DCT.

LaFerrari’s batteries weigh just 132 pounds and are mounted to the chassis.

Ferrari states that the car has a top speed exceeding 350 km/h (217 mph), and that it is capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in under three seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in under seven seconds, and a speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds.

Here is the video:

      I dont think they have a choice. It’s expensive to make videos, we see that ourselves. I wish we had such a large budget to do cool stuff.

      It plays without paying, but you’ll have to go to YouTube, I watched it on the YouTube app. Its also a good thing you decided not to pay, the video was only 2 minutes 44 seconds, definitely not worth the money. The majority of their videos are, this one was just too short to really enjoy.

        If you pay you get the full 15 minute video. The 2 minute 44 second video is free.

          Yes I realized that some time later, it stinks though, I’d subscribe but I only watch the videos with cars that interest me, I don’t need access to all of them.

      Chris Harris wrote about it (I couldn’t find the link, though) and he said that were in a partnership with you tube in a contract that lasted 2 years and has come to the end. Now they need to be able to produce their videos (which are not cheap) and they’ll keep the non-subscription (drive) and the new subscription (drive+) channels.

      The full version of this video lasts 15 minutes and requires subscription. It’s worth the money, in my opinion, due to the quality of the material.
