An ‘odd-sounding’ Ferrari LaFerrari test mule has been filmed lapping the Italian carmaker’s famous Fiorano test circuit this week.

Distinct ‘whistling’ sounds can be heard during the video, particularly towards the end when the test driver opens up the throttle.

This would suggest the LaFerrari’s usual 6.3 litre naturally-aspirated V12-hybrid power plant producing a combined 708kW and 900Nm isn’t fitted to the test mule.

With the 2014 Formula 1 season now firmly in the sights of all F1 teams, it’s entirely possible that next year’s Ferrari F1 engine is on-board.

For 2014, all Formula 1 engines will be turbocharged V6 units with ‘energy recovery’ systems, not greater than 1.6 litres in capacity.

This is something of a ‘back-to-the-future’ policy, with the original (and slightly smaller) 1.5 litre V6 turbocharged F1 engines banned for the start of the 1989 season.

The outgoing 2.4 litre naturally-aspirated V8 engines have been powering F1 cars since 2006.
