LaFerrari will always be a special one not just for those 700+ owners but also for Ferrari, since it is the company’s first-ever hybrid car. Which is why Ferrari is offering an extended factory warranty for both LaFerrari and LaFerrari Aperta, regardless of the car’s year of production. This is the first time Ferrari is offering an extended warranty on a limited-edition model.
The package called LaFerrari Power, is a two-year renewable programme that can be activated at any official Ferrari dealer. The warranty covers, among other things, the F1-derived HY-KERS system and the high-voltage battery pack. The package also includes annual scheduled maintenance performed by Maranello-trained technicians.
LaFerrari’s hybrid powertrain combines a 6.3L V12 engine and an electric motor hooked up with a 7-speed DCT. The ICE pumps out 588 kW (800 metric hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, while the e-motor adds 120 kW (163 metric hp), for combined figures of over 706 kW (960 metric hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). The ICE can rev up to 9,250 rpm! The battery pack consists of 120 cells assembled into eight 15-cell modules and weighs about 60 kg (132 lbs). The batteries are charged in two different ways: under braking—even hard braking when the ABS intervenes, such as when driving on a track—and every time the V12 produces more torque than required, such as during cornering. In the latter instance, rather than sending to the wheels, the excess torque is converted into energy and stored in the batteries.
