Thinks have worked out quite well in the Australian Grand Prix and we’re pretty sure there won’t be any problems with the upcoming Malaysia Gran Prix either. It simply seems that Lewis Hamilton won’t leave his hard-earned first place in the world of motorsport, so it’s no wonder he wants to keep the same status in his personal life too.
Like he wasn’t already driving the greatest cars in the world, Lewis Hamilton recently added one of the world’s most desirable hypercars to be yet created.

Considering his win over the Ferrari team, you have to admit this purchase is quite controversial. It was recently announced that the reigning Formula One champion welcomed the $2 million Ferrari LaFerrari into his impressive car collection, where it will be sitting next to some rare breeds such as the one-of Pagani Zonda, McLaren MP4-12C, Shelby Cobra and Shelby Mustang GT500.

Nevertheless, what for us might seem a bit risky, for Mercedes’ team principle looks rather like a common fact since Toto Wolff told Italian publication Corriere Dealla Sera that “for us there is no problem”. That is most likely what Hamilton said when he sat for the first time in the new hybrid hypercar, a true work of art that comes in only 499 units.

Since each of these beauties were sold even before they officially reached the market, we can only assume Lewis has been spending the last months imagining how that 6.3-liter V12 engine coupled with an electric motor which uses KERS technology sounds like. On the other hand, unlike the 2008 and 2014 Formula One World Champion who gets to hit the track for a living, this seems rather something that we’d normally spend our petrolhead nights thinking of.

Either way, we can’t wait for the 30-year old champ to take the monster on track so we can finally admire the car in its full potency.
