The long-awaited
Ferrari‘s top model, which is designed to continue to start a series F40, F50, Enzo, has its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. Instead of the previously announced internal codes F70 and F150, a new supercar is called LaFerrari. As expected based on previous speculative rendering at the front of the car dominate a huge air deflector that practically covers the entire front bumper. In addition, the molded shape of the hood and narrow elongated headlights that are pushed to the edges of the front wings give the impression of strength and aggressiveness that is hiding in the propulsion system. Round taillights connects the rear spoiler in a “T”. At the bottom of the bumper are two pairs of round exhaust pipes and flair situated between two diffusers.
