ELECTRIC POWER: Ferrari Is Making A 963HP Hybrid
Because they're all the rage right now, Ferrari is going to manufacturer a million-dollar, 963-horsepower gas/electric hybrid supercar called the *drumroll please* LaFerrari. *womp womp* Wow, and I was this close to putting my name on the waiting list. The car generates electric power from braking and then can use the stored energy to supplement the gas engine for BOOST ZOOMING. Boost zooming is a registered trademark of the Geekologie Writer by the way.
The LaFerrari has more power than the McLaren P1, it's also a hybrid made entirely of carbon fibre, it will do 62 mph under 3 seconds, and they will only make 499 while already having about 700 orders.
Who cares about how fast it can do 62MPH, how quickly can I get it to 88MPH? I'm asking for a friend and not me who totally doesn't have a flux capacitor and no this isn't a picnic basket full of dinosaur-sized condoms behind my back. They're, uh, weather balloons.
Hit the jump for more pictures and and a video of the thing zoom around that gave me a boner even though I tried to fight it.
Thanks to Reece, who thought about buying one but heard it's never a good idea to get a car the first year it's made because it takes a while to work out the kinks. Plus, you know, the whole money issue.
