Fiorano’s fastest

LaFerrariAs powerful as a Bugatti Veyron and as light as a Ferrari 458. That’s a mouth-watering power-to-weight equation for LaFerrari. The performance figures from the 708kW supercar are other-worldly as a result: 0 – 300kph time of 15 seconds before achieving a top speed of 350kph.

But its lap times around Ferrari’s infamous in-house Fiorano test track that are really the proof of the pudding. The previous quickest road car was the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta with a lap time of 1 minute 23 seconds, but rather predictably, LaFerrari with its lighter weight and hybrid-KERS kick in the backside can blitz the lap in 1 minute 20 seconds.

To put that lap time into perspective if you’re one of the lucky 499 LaFerrari buyers who’s shelled out £1.2-million. A purpose-built Maserati Trofeo race car is 1 and a half seconds slower – but the fastest ever F1 racer, the V10 F2004 can do a lap in under 56 seconds at the hands of Michael Schumacher. Everything is relative we guess.

Mandla85

Welcome to my corner of the automotive world! I'm Mandy Lawson, better known as mandla85, and I'm absolutely obsessed with everything related to cars and motorsports. You bet I'm interested if it has four wheels (or sometimes two!) and an engine. For me, cars aren't just a means of transportation; they're a passion, a lifestyle, and an endless source of fascination. I love diving into the world of automotive engineering and design, exploring the latest trends, and uncovering the stories behind the machines. Email / Facebook
