“Cavallo Infernale” Ferrari LaFerrari is up for grabs at auction

#hashtags: #LaFerrari #Ferrari

This is just one in three examples ever made for a very exclusive small series that translates into “infernal horse” or “horse from hell”, making the limited series LaFerrari almost unique.

In addition, this is a pristine example of Ferrari’s top of the line model, being up for grabs at the upcoming Mecum Auctions Monterey 2016 event with just 211 miles (340 kilometers) on the odometer. What makes it so special among the already truly unique series of LaFerrari examples? It’s one of just three LaFerrari cars painted Nero DS Opaco matte black – and it’s also holder of a small metal label at the base of the steering wheel that reads – “Cavallo Infernale,” which you guessed right, translates into “infernal horse” or “horse from hell”. The car is also packing Pirelli P-Zero tires on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear alloy wheels, and beneath them lie the impressive Brembo ceramic brakes.

Considered a “gigantic leap forward from the Enzo it replaces,” the LaFerrari has been stapled with all the Formula One technologies that made the Italian brand famous – or at least everything they had back in 2013 when the model was first introduced. Chief among them is of course the hybrid powertrain, which contains the HY-KERS Kinetic Energy Recovery System, working alongside a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox or the F1 electronic traction control that is integrated with the hybrid setup. The powertrain also uses a 6.3-liter V12 petrol engine and an electric motor for a total combined output of 949 horsepower (698 kilowatts), good for a 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in just 2.4 seconds.
