Ferrari LaFerrari testing on Ring


The wraps came off the Ferrari LaFerrari at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, but we're still in the dark about final performance figures. That data is likely being honed right now as the LaFerrari tests on the Nurburgring.

Most of the figures we have so far include the 'less than, more than' qualifiers. Ferrari has so far claimed a 0-100km/h time of less than 3.0 secs (300km/h in 15 secs) and a top speed of more than 350km/h -- which could reach as high as 370km/h.

That's achieved with a 6.3-litre V12 engine developing 588 kilowatts of power at 9000rpm and 700 newton-metres of torque at 6750rpm, mated with a 120kW HY-KERS energy recovery unit that adds short bursts of extra zing for a total 708kW and 900Nm.

Final performance figures should arrive after more testing, and Ferrari is keen to bust the recent Nurburgring lap record for a road homologated car set by the -- also hybrid -- Porsche 918 Spyder, which finished the circuit in 6:57. McLaren is also eyeing the record for their P1 hypercar.

Our spy photos show the test car on the difficult German circuit looks to be similar to the show car from Geneva -- with the addition of some camouflage wrap on the body. Although with it already having been shown undisguised, including runs on Ferrari's own test track at Fiorano, there could be little to hide now.
