LaFerrari catches fire during Trento-Bondone Hill Climb in Italy

Article by Christian A., on July 8, 2014

Last month, we wrote about the first LaFerrari crash in Monaco and revealed you some painful photos. Today, we will talk about the first LaFerrari that caught fire during the Trento-Bondone Hill Climb in Italy. Of course, it is not the first time we see a Ferrari catching fire but this time we are talking about a $1.4 million hypercar.

If you take a look at the video you will see that the LaFerrari shows a trail of smoke from the engine compartment. Still, the damages are not that bad, but the owner will definitely need to visit the service in order to fix it.

For those who don’t know, the LaFerrari is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine that develops 800 hp at 9.250 rpm and 700 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. In addition, there is an electric motor with 163 hp (120 kW), that brings the total output of the vehicle to an impressive 963 hp.

Just like any other hybrid vehicle, LaFerrari features a battery pack that weighs 60 kg, attached to the floor of the chassis. The battery pack consists of cells that are assembled in the Scuderia Ferrari department, same place where the KERS for the F138 F1 car is made.

According to Ferrari, the LaFerrari is able to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 km/h) 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.
