This isn 8217 t a race that you watch to see who wins. As amazing a car as the McLaren 655S is, Ferrari would have to answer to the world 8217 s most irate customers if the range topping LaFerrari hypercar couldn 8217 t outrun a 655S. The purpose of the race in this video is to, as Shmee puts it, show the difference between a supercar and a hypercar. Or to put it another way, the difference between a $ million car and a $267,555 car. There is also nearly a 855-horsepower difference, 955 vs 666.

The other recall affects the L82 seats, which come standard as passenger seats and optional as driver seats. You might remember that LaFerrari buyers were able to choose from three different seat sizes. The L82 is the largest of the three. Apparently, the headrests for these “may not absorb the required amount of energy” and are in violation of safety standards involving head restraints.
In any event, don 8217 t expect any Ferrari LaFerrari Apertas to appear in the classifieds anytime soon. All available units are gone, and we 8217 re left with the bitter realization that the closest we 8217 ll get to driving one is in the virtual world.
Motor Trend has had a chance to give the LaFerrari a test drive and provide an opinion about what it 8217 s like to drive, but it hasn 8217 t been instrument tested until now. The results are important because the car is in the running for the title of quickest production car in the world. And this video is therefore all about numbers. The reviewer talks a bit about the looks of the car and the impression of driving, but it 8217 s really a question of which car is fastest. There might still be some debate after this video, but the LaFerrari 8217 s unbelievably consistent quarter mile times are an important thing to make note of.
So, while we all wait to find out which of these five will be crowned the winner, we have more than enough time to watch all five hypercars engage in some pretty incredible hot laps. Enjoy the video!
The last Ferrari Laferrari Aperta is headed to the auction block this weekend. That alone should be enough to warrant headlines, but as most of you already know, the auction-bound LaFerrari Aperta is special in its own right. This unit isn’t supposed to exist in the first place. This is the 215th LaFerrari Aperta, a last-second creation by Maranello that isn’t a part of the initial lot of 259 units that the automaker planned to launch but was nonetheless built as an auction piece to benefit the “Save the Children” charity.
Many survived by their owners, and were raced for decades later, still competing in smaller events. They are still a big part of vintage racing today (the ones that are still raced and not restored in museums).
Call it madness, call it lunacy, call it outlandish… truth be told, we simply can’t look away! Hell, we’d actually argue that some of these creations are a bit, well, awesome (no, seriously). Either way, this is what happens when you give rendering artists free reign to mix and match from across the automotive spectrum. Naturally, we wanna know – which is these shocking mashups stands out the most to you? Let us know in the comments!
Is now the time to remind all of you to prepare those checkbooks? I can’t be certain, but seeing as this particular LaFerrari will go down in Ferrari history as the “LaFerrari that wasn’t supposed to exist,” it’s going to fetch a lot of money from collectors looking to score one of the most famous LaFerraris in the model’s entire lineup.
