Ferrari LaFerrari Launch Control Looks Mesmerizing in Slow Motion

The days when the Launch Control feature used to be a big thing are almost gone, with this goodie now being available on all sorts of machines. However, when we're talking about getting a LaFerrari off the line, things are a bit different.
Truth be told, we'd never get bored of seeing Ferrari's halo car throwing its 950 hp (963 PS) onto its rear wheels, with the gasoline-electric ponies punishing the rubber during the take-off phase.

And all you need to do in order to watch that happening is hit the "play" button below. The video at the bottom of the page sees a LaF pulling a hard launch in Dubai. Given the location's overly dense exotic machinery population, such a move seems as natural as sand being blown across the road over there.

Remember how the LaFerrari was sold out at its debut?

We are now about one month away from the Geneva Motor Show 2016, which marks the third birthday of Maranello's reigning machine.

Many LaFerrari-things have happened since the hybrid hypercar's debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2013.

For instance, while the LaFerrari's predecessor saw people waiting for years before they went berserk, drifting their Enzo on the street, we can't say the same about this hybrid.

Perhaps the most interesting case we've gotten wind of involves a LaFerrari that was crashed soon after its delivery. Now, such an accident might not sound special, but when you consider the fact that the owner is rumored to have taken the hypercar into his living room once this was fixed, the perspective changes.

While there's no confirmation on this, multiple sources report the Slovakian LaF owner who shares his home with his machine is the same man who had crashed one of these Ferraris in Budapest, Hungary.

As for the numbers this Ferrari can deliver, perhaps the best way to treat the topic is to remind you Maranello's determination to prevent a chronograph-sanctioned comparo (P1 and 918 included) hasn't prevented such an instrumented test from happening.
