We still have at least three to five years to wait until the LaFerrari's replacement, so this design will have to tide us over.
Next year will mark the start of a radical new chapter in the history of the hypercar with the launch of the F1-powered Mercedes-AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie leading the pack. Ferrari will also unleash a new flagship hypercar as a successor to the LaFerrari – but not for another three to five years. Ferrari has yet to dish out any details about its next flagship, so to whet your appetite Brazlian render artist Fernando Pastre Fertona has produced a speculative design of the LaFerrari’s eventual successor.
Developed in three days, Fertona’s futuristic design takes its cues from the current LaFerrari and has been adorned with “extreme and sensual lines” to create a distinctive design that still looks like it belongs in the Ferrari family. Very little about the LaFerrari’s successor is known, but Ferrari has ruled out the possibility of adopting F1 technology like its competitors. “When we define our new roadmap of technology and innovation, we will then consider a replacement for LaFerrari,” said Ferrari’s chief technology officer Michael Leiters. “We want to do something different. It won’t be a road car with a Formula 1 engine because, to be realistic, it would need to idle at 2500-3000 rpm and rev to 16,000 rpm.”
Launched back in 2013, the era-defining LaFerrari is the fastest car in the Ferrari fleet powered by a hybrid powertrain producing a combined output of 950 hp. It formed the holy trinity of hybrid hypercars alongside the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, which are both due to be replaced in the future. What do you think of Fertona’s vision for the LaFerrari's successor?
