LaFerrari (project name, F150) is a limited production hybrid sports car built by Italian sports car maker Ferrari. The car and its name were officially unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show. Only 499 units have been built, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars (€890,000). The name "LaFerrari" literally means "The Ferrari" in most Romance languages, in the sense that LaFerrari is the 'definitive' Ferrari.
The LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent. LaFerrari's internal combustion engine is a mid-rear mounted Ferrari F140 65° V12 with a 6.3-litre (6262 cc) capacity producing 789 bhp (588 kW) @ 9,000 rpm and 700 N·m (520 lbf·ft) of torque @ 6,750 rpm, supplemented by a 161 bhp (120 kW) KERS unit (kinetic energy recovery system; called HY-KERS), which will provide short bursts of extra power. The KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine's output level for a total of 950 bhp (708 kW) and a combined torque of 900 N·m (664 lb·ft).
Ferrari states that the car has a top speed exceeding 350 km/h (220 mph), similar to the Enzo's top speed, however, it is capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds, and a speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds. Ferrari also claims that the car has lapped its Fiorano Test Circuit in 1:19.70 which is faster than any other road-legal car Ferrari has ever produced.
The LaFerrari was Hot Wheels' last new Ferrari casting in 2014, before the ending of the license.
