The long-awaited successor to Ferrari's Enzo halo car, named for the company's revered founder, has been revealed in Geneva this week.

Dubbed simply 'LaFerrari' (how do you follow Enzo?), the new hypercar enters as the flagship model in the Ferrari range. Fittingly, only 499 examples will be offered to the public.

As with the Enzo, LaFerrari represents the pinnacle of the Prancing Horse's technological might, showcasing technologies that will, in time, work their way into the wider Ferrari range.

Like the Enzo again, styling here is a marriage of Ferrari's F1 heritage and aerodynamic efficiency, along with elements from the romantic but powerful language that has asserted itself across the current Ferrari line-up.

Ferrari used four types of carbon-fibre in constructing LaFerrari, all prepared and produced in the same methods used for the company's F1 cars.

As a result, torsional rigidity is improved over the Enzo by 27 percent and beam stiffness by 22 percent, whilst keeping weight down.

Power in LaFerrari is provided by a hybrid system that pairs a naturally-aspirated V12 engine with Ferrari's HY-KERS kinetic energy recuperation system.

From the 6.3 litre V12 engine comes a huge 588kw at 9000rpm and 700Nm of torque at 6750rpm, while the electric system contributes 120kW.

Ferrari claims a maximum combined output of 708kW and greater than 900Nm of torque.

Matched with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, LaFerrari promises a 0-100km/h time better than 3.0 seconds - no solid figure has been offered - and a top speed beyond 350km/h.

On its way to v-max, Ferrari says LaFerrari will hit 200km/h in less than 7.0 seconds, and 300km/h in less than 15 seconds.

Ferrari says LaFerrari has recorded a lap time at Fiorano of under 1'20" - five seconds faster than the Enzo and over three seconds faster than the F12berlinetta.

In simple terms, LaFerrari is the fastest road car in Maranello's long history.
