California's version of lake Como is also the annual hoast of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, an event that over the past few years has also become a sort of motor show. McLaren, Ferrari, Aston and Bentley all bring their concepts and new cars there because of the congregation of potential customers.
It's only natural that the most powerful Ferrari road car ever made would be shown there, but the LaFerrari has only been whispered, never outright confirmed for a 2013 Pebble Beach debut.
But photographer Jason Thorgalsen managed to find it hiding in some random barn in Northern California, thus revealing that it is indeed coming to Pebble Beach.
"There have been a lot of rumors about the car being shown in Pebble Beach during car week and with a little bit of luck my friends and I managed to find it and spend almost an hour taking pictures and video of the car," Jason says.
The successor to the famous Enzo, this car preserves the high-revving V12 engine, but pairs it with an electric motor. Combining the outputs from the two powerhouses, the exotic car has a total of 963 hp and a peak torque of over 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). LaFerrari can sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in under 3 seconds and reaches a top speed in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph).
