Ferrari LaFerrari was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It was one of the first production models from the "Cavallino Rampante" to incorporate the HY-KERS system, which allows energy to be recovered during braking and cornering to be used for more engine power, bringing the technology developed by the Maranello company in Formula 1 to a road car.
The car is fitted with a mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6262 cm³ V12 engine delivering 800 hp at 9250 rpm.
In addition, the HY-KERS energy recovery system, with the additional 163 hp developed by the associated electric power unit, brings the total output to 963 hp.

The Toyota RV-2 had a folding extension system that allowed the vehicle's interior to be enlarged, providing sleeping and leisure space.
The Toyota RV-2 was designed for outdoor enthusiasts and those who loved to travel.
Get ready to experience the thrill of speed with the ranking of the fastest motorbikes ever made in the world. The motorbikes in this ranking are capable of reaching incredible speeds, offering their riders an unforgettable adrenalin rush.
The creation of these two-wheeled 'bolides' leads to the most well-known brands such as Ducati, BMW, Aprila, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Honda. But there is also a 100% electric surprise in a world that is also revolutionising centaurs.
It is not just a question of engine, but also of design and aerodynamics that allow these two-wheelers to be true super sports bikes. Are you ready to get in the saddle?
To calculate how many kilometers a car can travel on a full tank simply multiply the tank capacity by the claimed km/l. The turbodiesel examples in our "top ten" (all European, half of them German) manage to exceed 1,300 km without ever stopping at the gas station. Let's find out the ranking together, here you go:10th Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi ECOnetic 1,325.00 km9th Opel Insignia 2.0 CDTI ecoFLEX 1,346.15 km5th Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.6 JTDm-2 1,363.64 km5th Peugeot 308 1.6 HDi robotized transmission 1,363.64 km5th Renault Mégane 1.5 dCi 1,363.64 km5th Citroën C4 1.6 HDi Ideal 1,363.64 km4th Volvo S40/V50 DRIVe 1,410.37 km3rd Audi A3 1.6 TDIe 1,447.37 km2nd BMW 320d EfficientDynamics 1,487.80 km1st Volkswagen Passat 1.6 TDI BlueMotion 1,590.91 km
Audi, Mercedes, BMW, are certainly luxury brands, producing expensive cars. But compared to today's "hyper cars," they look like super-cheap cars.
In fact, the most expensive cars in the world reach figures that are really hard to imagine. They are called "hyper cars" those cars for which the adjective "super" is too reductive.
Super-powerful cars, equipped with huge engines, and careful study to the design, aerodynamics, as well as the finish and interior ...
The shape of an automobile is the child of many requirements: mechanical, aerodynamic but also purely aesthetic. Today, design is one of the aspects in which car manufacturers invest the most.
A car judged aesthetically unattractive, in fact, risks becoming a commercial flop despite the fact that it may have interesting technical features, and vice versa.
In the history of the automobile, there are numerous cars that, while reliable, economical, and sometimes even fast and performing, have failed to shine in the market because of a questionable exterior appearance.
Automobiles have become the symbol of the dreams and aspirations of every era. And in Italy their history has indelibly marked moments linked to a path of industrial and economic as well as technological and design growth.
There are certainly many cars in Italy that would be worth remembering, but we have chosen 10 that have left something special for historical placement and change.
Italian genius imposes itself in the most diverse fields, but few sectors like the automotive sector have photographed in such detail every era experienced by the Bel Paese.
The Vector W2 was one of the most futuristic concept cars of the 1980s. Designed by Jerry Wiegert, founder of the Vector Motors Corporation, this prototype promised to take automotive design, technology and performance to a new level.
The shape of the Vector W2 was inspired by the fighter jets and racing cars of the 1960s and 1970s.
The effect was impressive: a low, wide and aerodynamic body with a line that seemed to defy gravity. In addition, the car was equipped with gull-wing doors, which accentuated its aggressive look.
Mercedes C 111, equipped with a rotary engine wankel never went into production. But it soon rose as an icon, providing ideas for the subsequent proposals of the Stuttgart house.
The futuristic Mercedes C 111 was greeted with amazement by the world public. Its creators? Bruno Sacco and Joseph Gallitzendörfe.
His debut in society took place at the Frankfurt International Motor Show 1969, where it was able to excite the public and the insiders.
The Mercedes C 111 did not have a commercial outlet, retaining its nature as an experimental vehicle. A total of twelve units were built, in the two versions unveiled in 1969 and 1970.
It was 1983 when Mansour Oijeh, founder of the TAG Group (an acronym for Techniques d'Avant Garde, holding offering services related to motorsports, aviation and watchmaking) requested from Porsche Exclusive a rare special homologation of the Porsche 935.
It was the first car ever produced by that division, and was named Porsche 935 Street.
The base was the Porsche 935 Group 5, a motorsport icon that dominated German championships in the late 1970s and a dream for all car fans.
John Z. DeLorean and its sports car DeLorean DMC12 in the 1980s made the traditional auto industry wake up and look for new ways.
Ford was very focused on developing the events of DeLorean. And although by 1984 the DeLorean "threat" had passed, for Ford the interest in a supercar with "wedge" shapes remained. Italdesign of Giorgetto Giugiaro was therefore approached.
The design produced by ItalDesign, the Ford Maya, was a two-seat coupe with distinctly wedge-shaped lines, featuring a mid-engine. This was in 1984.
