Ferrari's LaFerrari tested and proved to be amazingly quick
|   Sunday, April 12, 2015
The Ferrari's new LaFerrari was tested by travelling to Italy in Fiorano circuit. This circuit is of almost two miles distance. It was once an Italian farmland and now there is a rollercoaster of thirteen turns there. Testing of cars normally involves a pattern like 0-60 miles per hour, braking techniques, quarter mile accelerating skills and number of grips.

During the test, this Ferrari didn't let the testing team to jump into the cars to test them.
An engineer had the job of watching the whole proceedings and to provide a brief report of car's subsystems. There were also few mechanics whose job was to change tires when necessary. Ferrari wanted to make 100% sure that the LaFerrari is completely perfect and can run really smoothly with absolutely no noise.

When every Ferrari model gets tested with best factory knowledge, you will find testing equipments inside that car. These equipments help in recording the activities and results and then inform the testing team if the test has succeeded or not. This test is exclusively done and no other car is tested like this except the McLaren 650S.

There were various tests taken by the team and they recorded a mind blowing acceleration of 0 – 60 mph in only 2.5 sec. Another test gave them result of 0 – 100 mph in 4.8 seconds. They kept on testing and got another stat of 0 – 150 mph in 9.8 sec. It was never easy even for that experienced and talented team to test a super fast car like LaFerrari in the tracks of Fiorano. It never allows keeping on accelerating comfortably. Its straight is slightly downhill but really negligible wind could not trouble the team that much.

In very unfriendly situations, testing teams normally change the venue or drive through both sides and take its average as final result. But running in a straight by both sides is impossible as Ferrari suggested and to reverse the FIA racetrack would not favor the Italian rules. So they took the average of best drives in each side and used just one direction. The result was really incorrect as it meets the expectation of developers perfectly. This result clearly suggests that it is one of the fastest accelerating cars when 150 mph is considered.

Buggati Veyron's 16.4th edition had also got a very impressive result in tests during 2008 but LaFerrari resulted 1.5 seconds faster than it. LaFerrari covers quarter mile within 9.8 seconds which is same as Veyron. The rear wheeled drive option makes it even more valuable. Ferrari provides an easier launch control which enables easy actuation and also rips off with consistency. Whereas 918 has a four wheeled drive that gives it a starting advantage. That makes the LaFerrari superior than Porsche's 0 – 60 mph in 2.2 seconds acceleration.

Initial traction record suggests that 918 reach to 60mph in 114 feet whereas LaFerrari requires 119. Still it's pushing chest with full force to get 70 mph. While running 5 to 60 miles test, they recorded it to post 3.0 seconds. The overall testing is found to be a very successful at the end.
