Car looks good for sure, and I’m not even that big of a ferrari fan. Still prefer the P1 though. One things for sure, if Top Gear happen to cover this car at any point, you can be sure they will take La piss out of the name of the thing…
I don’t think this thing is called the Ferrari LaFerrari. I think its just called LaFerrari, like the Enzo’s official name was Enzo Ferrari, and not Ferrari Enzo. That being said, LaFerrari means “The Ferrari”, which would make a lot of sense if there was it were to be just LaFerrari.
@matt90 no doubt that’s the case. I just haven’t come across any of it in my online travels recently, whereas the p1 has been all over Twitter and websites fairly prominently. Maybe it’s the mix of sites/people I’m following, but it seems that McLaren did more promo work on this one. Hasn’t stopped the crowds at the stand, clearly.
I have to say – although being Italian I risk being thought of as heretical – I don’t like the latest Ferraris that much and actually I prefer the McLarens, both the MP4-12C and the P1. Sure, if I wanted a car to show off I’d pick the LaFerrari over the MP4-12C because the latter looks too simple. However, it reminds me a lot of the F1, which was very simple but astonishing; the Ferrari F40 was also simple, and that’s why I like it more than its current heir.
