What is Ferrari hiding under this LaFerrari prototype?

Because there are. Among other things, on the nose, where in this prototype the two characteristic air openings for the windscreen are missing. Also, some parts are missing on the front and on the rear, and the inlets on the flanks seem to be a bit smaller than those on the LaFerrari. It is also noticeable that this test Ferrari is on conventional five-bolt alloy wheels. The LaFerrari has special wheels with one central nut.

Prototype for successor Ferrari LaFerrari

The car in the pictures is a so-called mule; a test prototype disguised as an existing model. We assume that this will test the technology of the upcoming LaFerrari successor. It will probably be on the market in 2022 or 2023 and fits in the list of Ferrari 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari.

Atmospheric V12 with hybrid technology

Nothing is known about the powertrain, but the LaFerrari had at least a 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12, which was assisted by one electric motor. The combined power was 963 hp and 900 Nm. 500 coupés of the Ferrari LaFerrari were built between 2013 and 2016, followed by another 210 LaFerrari Apertas (convertibles).

McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder

Together with the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, the Ferrari LaFerrari formed the ‘holy trinity’ of the automotive world. Three hypercars, all (plug-in) hybrids, with power ratings from 887 hp (Porsche) to 916 hp (McLaren) and 963 hp (Ferrari). At McLaren you can see the Senna and Speedtail as successors to the P1. Porsche currently does not have a hypercar in its program.
