LaFerrari Spinning 360 Degrees on a Wet Track is a Quick Driving Lesson

Perhaps you’ve already taken performance driving lessons, or maybe these are simply on your waiting list. Either way, a recent LaFerrari episode we’re willing to show you can easily serve as a brief go-fast driving lesson.
LaFerrari Spinning 360 Degrees on a Wet Track 1 photo
The footage below brings us a LaFerrari playing on a wet track, with the key point here being a tête-à-queue. Technically speaking, what we have here is a double tête-à-queue, since the Ferrari does a 360-degree spin.

The sideways adventure begins with the driver applying power out of a relatively slow corner. Judging by the sound of the V12 engine, it was rather the electric torque that sent the machine sideways. We'd bet that it was the sudden torque that surprised the driver here, a treat of hybrid hypercars people need to adapt to.

The driver overcorrected, which invited the LaFerrari to a dance towards the other side of the track. You can clearly see this is an experienced driver though.

For instance, once it becomes obvious the 950 hp (963 PS) RWD machine is out of control, the man attempts to feed it a bit of trhottle, helping the car come back in line after the 360-degree spin.

Moreover, once the LaF comes to a halt, he quickly reacts by setting off once again, in the obvious desire to leave such incidents behind. A desire we all have, frankly.
The LaFerrari was accompanied by other VIHs (Very Important Hybrids)
Interestingly enough, while the LaFerrari was alone on a certain section of the track when it spun, the overall track day session saw the Prancing Horse in just the right company.

Among others, the LaFerrari was accompanied by a Koenigsegg Agera, a McLaren P1, as well as a Porsche 918 Spyder. The sheer aural delight that results from their combined voices is enough to make us ignore the questionable video quality.
