Video: LaFerrari test drive with Fernando Alonso

Although the Ferrari LaFerrari hypercar has been unveiled, it is still undergoing testing and development. The Italian company has just released another video showing F1 driver Fernando Alonso enjoying some of that ‘testing and development’.

Ferrari LaFerrari-Fernando Alonso

By the looks of it, and by the focused look on Alonso’s face, LaFerrari is going to be one super quick machine. As we know, power comes from a 6.3-litre V12 hybrid producing a colossal 708kW and around 1000Nm.

Acceleration from 0-100km/h is set to come up in under 3.0 seconds, while its top speed will be beyond 350km/h.

Like most unique new Ferrari models, consumers interested in purchasing a LaFerrari will have to undergo the company’s usual gauntlet of background checks. In other words, unless you’re very wealthy, important, or have owned Ferrari vehicles before, you’ll need to apply for the privilege to buy one.

Just 499 are expected to roll out from the production line. Deliveries are expected to take place later this year.
