After Geneva, LaFerrari, the Maranello’s hybrid supercar from Ferrari again steals the show and makes everyone stuck at auto Shanghai 2013. LaFerrari’s Architecture : LaFerrari, the first hybrid from the Prancing Horse has been successful in attaining ideal weight distribution (59% at the rear) and a compact wheelbase despite of extra weight of hybrid system. Consequently, all the mass is shifted between its two axles and as close as possible to the floor to lower its centre of gravity by 35 millimetres to ensure dynamic handling. HYKERS System : This is the first time Ferrari is powered by HY-KERS system developed by the F1 guys at Gestione Sportiva, which reduces fuel emissions by 40 per cent and operates with an impressive 94 per cent energy efficiency. V12 produces 800 CV and revs to a maximum of 9,250 rpm, a record for an engine of this displacement. It also features an extremely high 13.5:1 compression ratio and a high specific output equal to 128 CV per litre. The engine is coupled with other electric motor to power car’s ancillary systems with a 120 Kw (163 CV) electric motor, giving it a combined power output of 963 CV. Active Aerodynamics : Active aerodynamics plays a crucial role and enables complete adjustability of the car’s configuration to attain exceptional performance. In order to deliver the highest degree of aerodynamic efficiency ever achieved with any road car – a coefficient of nearly 3. LaFerrari sports active aerodynamic devices front (diffusers and guide vane on the underbody) and rear (diffusers and rear spoiler) which generates downforce.
