The Ferrari LaFerrari has one of the best sounding V12 engines out there, but make it a straight pipe exhaust system... then you get THIS! My friend @shinmikeyin has done exactly this with his LaFerrari and I jumped onboard for a ride in this crazy sounding hypercar before he allowed me to take the wheel for a test drive - what an experience, and what a sound!
The LaFerrari is really the halo of the Ferrari range, with 500 coupes being built and 210 Aperta (convertible) models it's not exactly common too. It's powered by a 6.3l V12 that's mated to an electric system for 963hp in total from the hybrid powertrain. With the mid-rear mounted engine, the sound doesn't have far to travel before it's singing from the exhaust tips - but now, things have got even crazier!
The LaFerrari is one of the cars in @shinmikeyin's garage: http://instagram.com/shinmikeyin - alongside the Pagani Huayra BC, Koenigsegg Agera R and Mansory Aventador Roadster. Getting started, we can take a full walkaround of the car and explore it inside and out, before MIke gives us a demonstration of a completely cold start of the engine.
Next up it's out onto the roads; Mike first, before he allowed me the opportunity to see what it's like and to experience the thrill of that soundtrack. Upon return, who doesn't want to hear some crazy revs in the garage?!
I cannot say thank you enough to Mike for the opportunity, please do give him a follow at: http://instagram.com/shinmikeyin
Thanks for watching, Tim
