Introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show back in March and reportedly sold out by the end of the summer, the Ferrari LaFerrari is spending more time track-testing than any other recently-launched supercar.
We’re confident Maranello fans aren’t bothered by this, but we can’t understand what Ferrari is really trying to achieve here. Ok, too much fine tweaking is never enough, but the LaFerrari should’ve been ready to meet its happy and wealthy customers by now.

On the other hand, our spy photographers spotted Ferrari’s latest supercar at the Nurburgring track, which could mean that the Italians are trying to get ready to set a new Nordschleife record. The Ferrari-McLaren-Porsche war could become extremely entertaining once the battleground is set at the German track.

As a quick reminder, the LaFerrari is powered by a V12 gasoline engine and electric motor hybrid powertrain rated at 963 HP. The car can reach an electronically-limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) and achieve the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in under 3 seconds. Only 499 examples will be built.
