Ferrari LaFerrari, Is there a formula 1 Street?

The LaFerrari is one of the new generation supercar. Racing Lamborghini McLaren P1 or Poison, among others of the most powerful and effective than ever supercar, who use the most innovative solutions, and hybrid systems to sophisticated.

Ferrari wins the battle for power, with 963 CV end, result of a combination of an atmospheric V12 engine and an electric motor high power. The front reminds us powerfully to the nose of a Formula 1 and meets aesthetic and aerodynamic function, optical monitor while threatening. Are the same lenses that we can find in the Ferrari F12. Beautiful wheels multi-radio live on the sculpted side profile, fruit of months in the wind tunnel, in search of better aerodynamic performance.

Ferrari LaFerrari frontalNot a single angle of the car has been left to chance. Large side vents channel air to the engine, just below the glass surface where it ends, finished in an appropriate color black. The back is very successful, with four tailpipes of generous dimensions, a transparent engine cover, an active diffuser, honeycomb grids, two rounded optical ...

Inside, multifunction steering wheel and a few buttons to manage the gearbox and some additional functions. The key piece is the instrumentation 100% digital, that offers all available information on the status of the car and its propulsion system.

Of course, production is very limited: are to produce 499 units at a price of 1,3 million euros the piece. Needless to say, the entire production was sold before starting production 2013, and orders nearly double the expected production.

Know more about the supercar that breaks the rules and HY-KERS hybrid propulsion system, it approaches the thousand horsepower.

Ferrari LaFerrari interiorLaFerrari mechanics is similar to using Formula cars 1. The V12 engine is the main responsible for the propulsion, and generates 800 CV a 9.250 rpm, from a displacement of 6.262 cc. To get an idea of ​​their technology, its compression ratio is 13,5:1 and employs advanced technologies such as mobile intake manifolds, optimizing the air flow depending on the engine speed, a technology that had never been employed in a street vehicle. Its maximum torque of 700 Nm a 6.750 rpm.

Meanwhile, the electric motor generates 163 CV y 270 Nm by motor. The electric motor is coupled to the gearbox, which is a unit F1 e-DCT dual-clutch seven relations, designed to support the entire system torque. Yet, the combined maximum power of HY-KERS will be stunning and 963 CV, with the top pair 900 Nm. The electric motor draws on an advanced battery rack mounted by the Scuderia Ferrari. These batteries have a final weight of only 60 kg and its location helps to lower the center of gravity of the car. 963 CV, over 900 Nm pair, under 3 in seconds 0 a 100 km/h, 1.255 kg, active aerodynamics,…

How the hybrid system works in series LaFerrari? In braking or deceleration batteries are charged, and acceleration are turning on the electric motor, providing the extra power and torque to the engine V12. Think of the system as a kind of electric turbo, that may be used at will. It is not a relevant fact, but their emissions of carbon dioxide will only 330 g/km, much lower than those who had the Ferrari Enzo, his predecessor, which only had a mechanical V12 air as a propellant.

LaFerrari backRegarding benefits, is able to accelerate to 100 km / h in less than three seconds and its top speed is estimated at more than 350 km/h. To get used to the idea of ​​other data prestacionales, is capable of accelerating from 0 a 300 km / h in only 15 seconds.

How could it be otherwise, LaFerrari chassis uses a carbon fiber monocoque. It is a frame one 27% and stiffer 20% lighter than the employee in the Ferrari Enzo. The lightness has been the top priority, but also the safety of the occupants in a crash. Some parts of the chassis using other known experimental compounds and fibers like Kevlar, so that protection is high. Despite all the hybrid car technology and retain the dimensions of Enzo, It is a very light machine.

The LaFerrari weights only 1.255 kg, despite having a battle of 2.665 mm and a length of 4,70 meters. Measures 1,99 meters wide and only 1,11 meters. Its weight distribution is practically perfect, with the 59% weight resting on the rear axle and the 41% doing the same on the front. The chassis structure also affects the driving position, identical to that of a Formula 1, and ergonomically ideal for driving the car more like a street racing car ever built.

Ferrari LaFerrari interior of the motorDynamic and aerodynamic performance at the highest level. Although the maximum could be defined as a function over form, Ferrari has managed to produce a beautiful machine in mind aerodynamic performance book. By computerized fluid dynamic air flow to the engine is optimized and the car remains stuck to the floor, but the real magic is in active aerodynamics and intelligent channeling air through the nose of the car and several channels located at the bottom of LaFerrari, which is completely faired.

Both the front spoiler and rear flaps have phones that allow increase or decrease downforce and act as airbrakes. The "nose" front equips a mobile gate that closes or opens, increase aerodynamic efficiency as the situation demands. As for the dynamic performance, This is where Ferrari has pulled the boat out, achieving a lap time at Fiorano no less than five seconds less than the Ferrari Enzo. We talked about a minute and a half circuit lap. It is a world.
In addition to a scheme rejuvenated independent suspension with constant electronic control (SCM-E Frs), is electron which has the leading role. LaFerrari mounts the latest generation of electronic differential lock (E-Diff 3), and a traction control EF1-Trac integrated into the hybrid system, with various driving modes, like its predecessors have enjoyed.
