Ferrari LaFerrari has been all that the Italian manufacturer has aspired to be all the years it has been operational. Progressive, artful, futuristic, elusive and expensive. But before we could even get over all this they have revealed their plans to bring out its successor in the next 3 to 5 years.
The new Halo car for Ferrari is yet to be finalised as Michael Leiters, Ferrari’s chief technology officer, told a media house that Maranello is working on finalising its innovation and technology plans for the future. When they are done with that the flagship supercar will then reach development stage and is going to feature an amalgamation of LaFerrari’s hybrid powertrain. The tech will be loaded even to the future models which succeed the 812 SuperFast and the GTC4Lusso.
He also clarified that Ferrari would not emulate Mercedes-AMG’s formula of building a road legal hypercar with the engine of an F1 car. Although, the LaFerrari makes use of the same HY-KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) which provides a massive boost to the 6.3 Litre V12 coupled with an electric motor and the combined power output is 789 bhp whereas the combined torque is 900 Nm.
Leiters also said that the F1 system will not be feasible for the fact that they have to idle at 2500-3000 rpm and rev till 16,000 rpm which is not going to be possible on the road going cars.
