Jay Kay gets ready to receive his Kermit Green LaFerrari

Article by Christian A., on June 16, 2014

LaFerrari was introduced back in March 2013 but it appears that the Italian carmaker is still working hard to deliver all the 499 units of its latest supercar. The latest lucky customer who will receive his LaFerrari very soon is Jay Kay, a Grammy Award-winning English musician which is best known as the lead singer of the funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai.

As you can see, his car looks really special because it features a Kermit Green paint finish. Same Kermit Green color is found also at the interior, although we have just a small photo that shows the lower part of the steering wheel and the driver’s seat.

In addition, Jay Kay’s LaFerrari features a plaque on the steering wheel that carries the name of his band. Under the hood, there is a 6.3-liter V12 engine that generates 800 hp at 9,250 rpm and 700 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm.

Moreover, the LaFerrari comes with an electric motor that generates 163 hp (120 kW). The total output delivered by the LaFerrari is 963 hp. The hybrid system found on the LaFerrari consists of two electric motors that were developed in collaboration with Magneti Marelli.

One electric motor powers the driven wheels while the second the ancillaries. The energy is taken from a battery pack attached to the floor of the chassis, which lowers the centre of gravity by 25 mm.

As a result, the LaFerrari accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds.
