Ferrari LaFerrari testing on the Nordschleife spy shots
The wraps have already come off the Ferrari LaFerrari
, though many of its specifications remain stated in "at least" and "more than" terms. Perhaps that's because Ferrari hasn't finalized things just yet--and why it's out testing the car on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Shown here as test drivers push it hard around the famously difficult circuit, the LaFerrari
being tested looks to be essentially identical to the car shown at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, though it is wearing a camouflage wrap over about two-thirds of its body.
Our spy photographers tell us not to expect any record lap times from this testing session, as it appears the team is at the 'Ring solely for developmental and testing purposes. Of course, a run at the record is likely at some point, though it may come further along in the cycle.
The LaFerrari has already been seen on track, as well, once with Fernando Alonso
, and once as a pair of the hypercars
--one undisguised, one in camouflage--ran around Ferrari's own test circuit at Fiorano.
Ferrari's new 950-horsepower hybrid hypercar claims 0-60-mph times of less than 3.0 seconds, a top speed of more than 217 mph (expected to close in on 230 mph), and a 0-186-mph sprint in under 15 seconds._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
