Ferrari LaFerrari Review

Ferrari LaFerrari, which is also known as F150, is a limited
production hybrid sports car. It was built by Italian sports
car maker Ferrari, and it was their first mild hybrid,
providing the highest power output than any other Ferrari while
decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent.

Exterior

The LaFerrari was designed by the design team led by Flavio
Manzoni, whose goal was to make the perfect combination of form
and function.

The aerodynamics were based on the F1. The LaFerrari is
equipped with front diffusers and guide vane on the underbody,
rear diffusers and spoiler which generate downforce when needed
without adding excessive drag. These were developed based on
many different performance parameters monitored in real time by
the vehicle’s dynamic controls.

On the side, the LaFerrari looks like a typical Ferrari, as it
has a downward-sloping nose and a very low bonnet which
emphasizes its muscular wheel arches.

Ferrari LaFerrari Interior

The interior of the Ferrari LaFerrari has a sporty design and a
high-level supercar performance. The driver’s seat is fixed and
adjusted to the driver, while both the pedal box and steering
wheel are adjustable, and the position is similar to that of a
single-seat racecar.

The newly-designed steering wheel sports major integrated
controls and gear levers which are directly fixed to the
steering column.

Other instruments are placed on the suspended-wing-like
“bridge” between the seats. These instruments are linked to a
dual clutch gearbox.

The instrumentation includes a 12.3″ TFT display with the
option to choose between two layouts and the ability to host
data from the telemetry system.
