Here’s your first look at the LaFerrari supercar, the Prancing Horse’s new flagship supercar, out on the track, without all of the editing and studio-generated sounds of Ferrari’s original launch video for the car.

Although brief, it provides us with a much better idea as to what the LaFerrari sounds like in person, and how it looks on the road.

We also get a look at the LaFerrari with its engine bay uncovered, revealing the mighty 6.3-liter V-12 engine that lies within.

It certainly is a thing of beauty, but the best part is that it sounds just as good as it looks.

Unfortunately, with all 499 LaFerraris set to be produced already snapped up by Ferrari’s wealthy clientele, most of whom will probably lock their cars away in private garages, you probably won’t have the chance to actually hear one in anger.

That’s a shame, because the new supercar, the fastest and most powerful road car ever launched by the Prancing Horse, should never be kept hidden, but driven out on the streets for everyone to enjoy.

With 950 horsepower and more than 660 pound-feet of torque delivered by its V-12 hybrid drivetrain, the LaFerrari will accelerate to 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds, hit 186 mph in 15 seconds and go on to reach an undisclosed top speed in excess of 217 mph. It was also lap Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in less than 1:20, which is 5.0 seconds quicker than the Enzo and 3.0 seconds quicker than the F12 Berlinetta.
