Ferrari 280 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari | Classic Car Show Birmingham NEC

Ferrari 280 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo, and LaFerrari are at the Classic Car Show, NEC Birmingham. Spotting five iconic Ferraris at the same time at the same place is lucky. Add this to Wikipedia, please.

After waiting for almost 20 years, I managed to see the Ferrari F50! I am not a classic car fan and rarely attend classic car shows. However, this time when I saw the Ferrari F50 on Instagram, I rushed into the classic car show because this might be my first and last chance to see a Ferrari F50!

Ferrari F50 is not the ultimate hyper car, but it is the rarest one! You can spot an Enzo, a F40 or a LaFerrari more easily than a F50! Spotting all these Ferraris at the same time? The probability is quite close to winning a lottery.

Ferrari LaFerrari at Autosport International 2015

Today Autosport International 2015 started and this year it started with an epic super car, Ferrari LaFerrari. There are only 400 of LaFerraris and it is extremely rare to spot one the roads. Literally, Autosport International 2015 can be the first and last place to see a Ferrari LaFerrari!

Why I am saying this? Because, super cars of Ferrari are always rare to spot and if you missed it, it gone! So don’t be late!

Second Hand Ferrari LaFerrari

Finally, it is here again. A brand new second hand Ferrari LaFerrari just for €3-million and available at Luxembourg. Ferrari was very strict with the LaFerrari orders and they also mentioned that, there is a gentlemen’s agreement for the second hand valuation. Basically, Ferrari said, when you want to sell it, we will buy it. But it would never happen! And also Luca di Montezemolo is not controlling the Ferrari anymore, so we will see more second hand LaFerraris on the market.

If you have lots of money and Ferrari rejected, now it is the time!

McLaren P1 vs. Ferrari LaFerrari vs. Porsche 918 Spyder Specs

McLaren P1 vs. Ferrari LaFerrari vs. Porsche 918 Spyder. The most important question of the world! Okay, I know there are more important issues than comparing €1-million cars. But, the last time I saw this competition, there was no iPhone and Nokia was the leader of the market and Kate Upton was drinking her milk before sleeping. I mean the year, 2004! Ferrari Enzo vs. Mercedes McLaren SLR vs. Porsche Carrera GT. 
And during last one decade, we didn’t see any exciting cars like these. We had ordinary cars, except Bugatti Veyron and Pagani. As they are living on a different planet. I really love the competition between Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren. Which is my favourite? All of them :) 
But I will end up with a BMW i3, because it is cheaper to run. So, I have the words to compare these cars but, lack of the imagination to own one of them. Just compare the specs and decide which is your best.
Keep in mind, Porsche 918 Spyder is exempt from London congestion charge.

Ferrari released videos of LaFerrari yesterday. I have placed all the video down here. Starting from the official launch video. The seconds video is “focus on architecture” with some YouTube ads placed under the video. Focus on vehicle dynamics, focus on the HY-KERS for hybrid technology details. Focus on the chassis, you know it is chassis.

Ferrari LaFerrari: Why Ferrari Named Ferrari F70 as LaFerrari?

Ferrari LaFerrari is the name of the Ferrari Enzo predecessor. Until now, we all thought that LaFerrari name was not under consideration and F70 or F150 names were rumoured on internet for very long time. I think it was a very good tactic and Ferrari managed to keep the LaFerrari brand secret, it is a bit Apple style. So Why LaFerrari? I will tell you the secret in the last paragraph.
So, LaFerrari is basically a road legal Formula 1 car with an extra seat and proper doors and a boot. All the technology available in LaFerrari is transferred from Ferrari’s Formula 1 experiences. 
LaFerrari is a hybrid vehicle like McLaren P1. The core of the LaFerrari is harmonised with a V12 petrol engine (800 HP and 700 Nm of torque) and an electric motor (163 HP and 270 Nm of torque). V12 engine is capable of 9250 rpm. Combination of the V12 and the electric motor, the total output is 963 HP. Thus, LaFerrari can accelerate to 100 km/h less than 3 seconds, and only needs 7 seconds to reach 200 km/h and 15 seconds for 300 km/h. And the top speed is more than 350 km/h. Unfortunately, Bugatti Veyron is still faster than Ferrari but that’s a different car.
Hybrid system of LaFerrari, the HY-KERS is capable of supplying energy to electric motor and recharging the batteries on braking and excess torque from the V12 engine.
LaFerrari will be sold only 499 units and will cost around €1.3 million. 
And where did the inspiration come from for the LaFerrari name? LaFerrari unfortunately resembles the fashion brand LaSenza and also does not sound that bold. But I know where the inspiration came from; the epic song L’Italiano from Toto Cutugno. If you don’t believe me, just listen the song :)
