After getting some seat time in the LaFerrari supercar back in April, Formula One ace and current Scuderia Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso took time out prior to July’s 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix to drive the car a bit more. Along with his teammate Felipe Massa, the Spaniard has been involved right from the start of the LaFerrari project and even on this latest occasion he is said to have contributed valuable insights.
Although the new Ferrari flagship has already made its world debut, the car is still running the grueling test gauntlet ahead of the start of production later this year. While we know it develops a peak 950 horsepower (963 in metric figures) from its hybrid V-12 drivetrain, many other vital specs are yet to be disclosed.
These include the car’s 0-60 mph time, top speed, curb weight and peak torque, so it’s clear a lot of aspects are still being worked on. Some preliminary figures include 0-60 mph acceleration in under 3.0 seconds, 0-186 mph acceleration in 15 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 217 mph.
We can’t be sure what Alonso had to say about the LaFerrari’s latest developments but judging from the video it looks like he thoroughly enjoyed the session.
