PICTURE - I took this picture in March 2019 at a rally organised by Horsham District Council. HISTORY - LaFerrari ( 2013-2018) is the first hybrid produced by the Italian automotive marque, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari road car whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent. LaFerrari's internal combustion petrol powerplant is a longitudinally rear mid-mounted Ferrari F140 direct fuel injected 65° V12 engine with a displacement of 6,262 cc (6.3 L) generating a maximum power output of 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) at 9,000 rpm supplemented by a 163 PS (120 kW; 161 hp) KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) unit which provides short bursts of extra power. The car uses a carbon fibre monocoque structure designed by Ferrari's F1 technical director Rory Byrne and has a 7 speed gearbox and after 2016 was available as an open top variant called the Aperta. Ferrari states that the car has a top speed exceeding 349 km/h (217 mph), similar to the Enzo's top speed, however, it is capable of accelerating from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.4 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in under 7 seconds, and 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 15 seconds.
