Laferrari – wikipedia bp gas prices akron ohio

The LaFerrari is based on findings from testing of the FXX [5] and on research being conducted by the Millechili Project at the University of Modena. Association with the Millechili Project led to speculation during development that the car would weigh under 1,000 kg (2,205 lb), [9] but a dry weight of around 1,255 kg (2,767 lb) was claimed. [10] Only 499 units have been built, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars. The production of the 500th LaFerrari coupé was announced on 31 August 2016. The vehicle was to be sold at auction to benefit the people of central Italy affected by the August 2016 Central Italy earthquake on 24 August 2016. [11] Ultimately, it was put up for auction on 3 December 2016, by RM Sotheby’s at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali weekend at Daytona International Speedway. All proceeds are to go to the National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund. [12] The Earthquake relief fund model sold for USD 7.5m. [13] [14]

The vehicle was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, [15] [16] followed by Auto Shanghai 2013, [17] [18] 2013 Tour Auto Optic 2000, [19] [20] 2013 Supercar Chronicle, [21] [22] Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan. [23] LaFerrari Aperta (2016–2017) [ edit ]

The LaFerrari Aperta is a limited version (210 units) of the LaFerrari. Initially, 200 cars were sold with an additional nine reserved for use during the Ferrari 70th Anniversary celebrations. [24] One more model was later sold by auction. [25] The LaFerrari Aperta comes with a removable carbon-fibre hard top and a removable soft top. Other changes include more efficient powertrain’s control electronics, re-angled radiators to direct air flow out along the underbody rather than over the bonnet, a longer front air dam to help boost downforce, a L-shaped flap on the upper corner of each windscreen pillar to reduce compression on the rear of the cabin in the absence of a roof, different butterfly door angles with different wheel arches and a new carbon fibre insert allowing the doors to rotate. [26]

The vehicle was unveiled in 2016 Paris Auto Show. Like past convertible Ferrari models, it uses the Aperta label to denote its retractable roof. According to Ferrari, all units were already sold to customers via invitation. [27] [28] [29] Specifications [ edit ]

The LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent. [30] LaFerrari’s internal combustion engine is a mid-rear mounted Ferrari F140 65° V12 with a 6.3-litre (6262 cc) capacity producing 800 PS (588 kW, 789 bhp) @ 9000 rpm and 700 N⋅m (520 lbf⋅ft) of torque @ 6,750 rpm, [1] [2] supplemented by a 163 PS (120 kW; 161 bhp) KERS unit (called HY-KERS), which will provide short bursts of extra power. [31] The KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine’s output level for a total of 963 PS (708 kW; 950 bhp) and a combined torque of 900 N⋅m (664 lb⋅ft). [2] [32] Ferrari claims CO 2 emissions of 330 g/km. The engine’s bore and stroke is 94×75.2 mm with a compression ratio of 13.5:1 and a specific power output of 94 kW (128 PS) per litre. [2] It is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the car is rear-wheel drive. [2]

LaFerrari uses a carbon fibre monocoque structure developed by Ferrari’s F1 technical director Rory Byrne, with a claimed 27 percent more torsional rigidity and 22 percent more beam stiffness than the Enzo. [35] It has a double wishbone suspension in the front and a multi-link suspension in the rear. [2]

LaFerrari has a number of electronic controls including ESC, high performance ABS/EBD (anti-lock braking system/electronic brake distribution), EF1-Trac F1 electronic traction control integrated with the hybrid system, E-Diff 3 third generation electronic differential, SCM-E Frs magnetorheological damping with twin solenoids ( Al-Ni tube), and active aerodynamics, which are controlled by 21 of the LaFerrari’s onboard computers, to enable maximum performance. [2] The body computer system is developed by Magneti Marelli Automotive Lighting. Performance [ edit ]

Ferrari states that the car has a top speed exceeding 217 mph (349 km/h), similar to the Enzo’s top speed, however, it is capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.4 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in under seven seconds, and a speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds. [2] Ferrari also claims that the car has lapped its Fiorano Test Circuit in 1:19.70 which is faster than any other road-legal car Ferrari has ever produced. [36] Design [ edit ]

LaFerrari received no input from Pininfarina, making it the first Ferrari since the Bertone-styled 1973 Dino 308 GT4 not to have Pininfarina bodywork or other styling. This decision is a rare exception to the collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina that began in 1951. However, Ferrari has stated that two new models designed jointly with Pininfarina have yet to be unveiled and that there are no plans to end business relations with Pininfarina. [37]

The cockpit stands out for its essentiality and the sportiness of the shapes, intended to convey the high level of performance of the car. There is a steering wheel with integrated controls and gear levers directly fixed to the steering column, a solution that allows better use in all conditions. The "bridge" which exists between the two seats, designed like a suspended wing, is home to other instruments linked to the dual-clutch gearbox. The instrumentation consists of a 12.3-inch (310 mm) TFT display with the option to choose between two layouts and can host data from the telemetry system. Gear

85 LaFerrari coupés between 2014 and 2015 model years were recalled due to headrests from Lear’s L32 seat failed to absorb the required amount of energy, and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System displaying wrong message when tyre is punctured. [39]

Hublot Manufacture produced 60 MP-05 "LaFerrari" hand-wound Tourbillon wristwatches inspired by the LaFerrari coupé. [43] [44] The Hublot’s LaFerrari has 50 days of power reserve due to uses of 11 barrels. The more barrel it has, it can lengthen the power reserve but usually it is used to increase precision.
