The Trento-Bondone Hill Climb in Italy witnessed various luxury brands participating in the motoring event. Models from Ferrari, BMW, Jaguar and the likes were spotted making the hill climb.
But what caught attention was a LaFerrari which was making the hill climb leaving a trail of smoke behind it. One can spot the red LaFerrari leaving the smoke behind (at 00:38) in the video attached below. Later, an Instagram photograph also emerged which showcased the car suffering minor damages to its rear bumper probably because of overheating issues in the engine department.
Ferrari’s have developed a notorious habit of overheating over the past few years and the LaFerrari seem to be going down the same path. Audience at the 64th edition of the Trento-Bondone Hill Climb in Italy also said that there were some flames coming out of the LaFerrari’s rear.
LaFerrari is a limited edition hybrid sports car built by Italian car maker, Ferrari. It is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari which makes highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent. The LaFerrari is powered by a 6.4-litre petrol engine that makes 789 bhp and 700Nm torque supplemented by a 161 bhp KERS unit (called HY-KERS). The total power produced by both the engines comes up to 950 bhp and 900Nm of torque. The CO2 emission, as claimed by the company, is 330 g/km. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
