Spotted running test laps at the Adria Raceway in Italy, a new modified version of the LaFerrari hybrid supercar packs over 1,000hp according to Czechexotics.com, which published photos of the vehicle to Facebook.
Dubbed the LaFerrari XX, this exceptionally high-performance model differs from the original LaFerrari through new aerodynamic features, including two small rear fins for better handling. The interior is clearly that of a race car, stripped of any unnecessary frills and equipped with a roll bar, in addition to a steering wheel with built-in controls. According to the latest rumors, this enhanced supercar is said to have up to 1,050hp, although no specific details have surfaced on the nature of the powertrain.
Czechexotics.com reports that the LaFerrari XX will be officially unveiled at the 2014 Finali Mondiali, which is to take place in Abu Dhabi from December 3 to 6.
Introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the LaFerrari combines an electric motor with an 800hp V12 fuel engine for a total output of 963hp. The model can reach a top speed of 350km/h, accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in less than three seconds and go from 0 to 300km/h in less than 15 seconds. To achieve this exceptional performance, the LaFerrari emits an average 330g/km, significantly less than the Enzo's 545g/km.
The LaFerrari XX would be a direct competitor to the McLaren P1 GTR, the latest model out of Woking, which is also currently testing and due for launch in 2015. A concept version of the British supercar was premiered last August at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in the US. Like the LaFerrari XX, this enhanced version of the P1 is expected to rev up with over 1,000hp.
