    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    Thanks for posting. It has gone remarkably quiet on the LaFerrari front. Maybe there is substance to the rumours that there is a delay in production - have you heard anything?


    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    I heard battery problems and crash test fail. But it is only net rumours

    So it has a marine anchor hanging in the front and wears a g-string in the back.

    I can only guess and have no more information than you have. There seems to be a problem with the crash results of the Larifari, but that's what we've all heard.

    I still have some worries about the design of the Airy-Fairy, at least from pics. There are some rather awkward details, especially at the front. Smiley

    The sound is amazing and the glass panel above the engine is a beautiful feature .

    But did a butterfly inspire them for the mirrors ?

    I think the rear is fantastic looking.

    I confess I prefer the 4 round tail ligths from the Enzo, the F70 with four of those would look even better than only two.

    I agree with you there 1000%

    I never liked the departure form the 4 round lights. It was such an iconic aspect of Ferrari and present al through their history. I never understood why they decided to leave behind such a prominent feature. The only explanation I can think of is that so many other brands had adopted the 4 round lights as a default setup. but still, imagine a 458 or a F12 with dual lights, what a beauty they could´ve been. 


    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    There is specific design dynamic that Ferrari practice in last two decades, so expect 4 round lights to come back @2020. They just dont want to be boring with same exact (iconic) elements on their cars. They want more elements to play with, trick is with dosage  :)

    I do believe so, and it will come sooner than 2020, maybe next "458" will have it already as the last and most special Ferrari of this new era have it, so it´s time for next models return to those iconic four lights.

    I can't start liking this design. Too busy, even from the back it looks fat and ugly... yes

    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    Finally I took delivery. Just epic. What a car! By far the fastest and most intense to drive. So much fun too, it just gives you more and more confidence as you push. It's a bit big on some mountain passes but it's alive! The hybrid tech is awesome, the E engine torque fills at low revs and helps at high revs for max power.

    We pickup the car up at the factory. So far Ferrarri has delivered approx 50 cars. The guys were super nice, I called them to tell them we'd be 8 mates! No problem they said. Private factory visit then invitation for lunch at Montana and then the delivery. The coolest delivery ever. Champagne canapés blah blah blah. Then Fabrizio chief test developer took me for a spin. Easy drive out of Maranello and then floored it! That will answer the question about the brake in procedure then. Sport, Race, TC OFF, kick the back out, the TC calibration is the work of genius. Then back to the factory, pictures, keys and ciao ciao! Off we went, four car, 355, 458 Speciale, F12 and Laf.

    2000km, numerous mountain passes, started full blast with col de Turini, a rally de Monte Carlo special, it's a bit difficult to judge far right side because you sit so low and the wheel arch is quite big but it's ok. In Sport the TC castrates the power too much, in Race too, better response and gear changes but still no slide. TC off is the way to go, soon the learn to lean on the car, it talks to you, it's approachable and yet the V12 is savage, so violent, traction is ridiculous, coming out of hairpins floor it in 1st gear, nice oversteer, 2nd gear and you're already too fast for mountain roads. The Speciale was better suited, obviously. More passes, non stop, gorgeous weather, the stuff of dreams, Vars pass, Izoard pass, drove all the way up to 2200 meters.

    The brake pedal is a bit weird, it's quite hard, because of the regen of the E engine but you get used to it. 

    There is an E mode called Start & stop EVO, it's not like the 918 or P1, you can't drive it in E mode but you can crall in E mode. Ferrari says it's to leave your house in E mode and silently (the car is mega loud when it starts). So you can crawl in E mode but as soon as you accelerate the V12 starts.

    Noise: Freaking awesome. Extremely loud. Just so so angry. It doesn't sound as sweet as the LFA or Carrera GT but it's so much louder, it's epic. Then there are the other noise, the HY Kers makes the weirdest noises, when you brake it sounds like a Star Wars spaceship landing, then when you accelerate gently, you hear all sort of weird noises coming from the back, very mechanical and unusual.

    Performance: Biblical. We clocked 0 to 200 in jus above 7 s, starting from a tool booth without launch control. Race mode and floor it. This is the first road car I drive where you can feel the downforce, on the motorway from Genova to Nice, you have fast bends, the faster you go, the more planted the car feels. It's freakish. Not GT2 levels of course but half way there, it's amazing. And at the same time, suspensions in bumpy road mode of course, so it's comfortable.

    Comfort: Perfect, in bumpy road mode it's just perfect. Makes the LFA hard! Inside it's super snug. No room at all. The driving position is perfect. I'm 6ft and I have to push the pedals all the way back but the steering wheel adjust very close. It's the closest in driving position I've been to a GT2 car. The view too. It's ultra low. The view out is perfect. The huge mirrors let you see back very well too.

    The instrument cluster is amazing. Full digital. You can personalise everything. You can switch between classic display and race display. There are two cameras for the telemetry, one filming ahead and one filming the driver and can view data and video after a track day like in a race car. Can't wait to try it.

    Drawbacks: Details but the boot is ridiculous. So unless you have a support car you can't take stuff with you which is a shame. The GPS is standard Ferrari which means it's shit. The Hifi is also pretty crap but at least there is one. The paddles are fixed, same as other ferraris and that sucks, race car paddles move with the steering wheel and it's easier to shift in fast bends. Frankly that's it.

    This car is a triumph. It's mega mega fast and yet it's so easy to drive. Best road car ever made for me. Period.

    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    Ridiculous boot. Pack light! Engine bay is a work of art. You lift the small part like in the pic and also the whole rear but you need tools. This V12 belongs in a museum. 

    Car is wide, parking can be tight. We stopped overnight in some tiny lost villages with ultra narrow roads to access. Not sure many LaFerrari have been there.

    I'll leave parading in Monaco for the fat blokes...

    So envious.


    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    WOW !! epic report ! thanks for sharing !   Love to see you getting to real use it right off the bat. It looks gorgeous in the last pic from above in the narrow village road. 


    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    Thank You so much for this wonderful review!

    so the brake feelings Is the only little  downside of this amazing car ?

    JEANTET:

    Thank You so much for this wonderful review!

    so the brake feelings Is the only little  downside of this amazing car ?

    Thanks all. No I wouldn't even say it's a downside when you're gunning it because you brake hard anyway. When cruising, you just get used to the heavy top end feel of the pedal, it really isn't a problem. 

    By the way, the brakes are phenomenal, and it's quite cool, everytime you brake hard, the whole rear view fills with the rear spoiler. It also raises at high speed but only a few cm to stabilise the rear.

     


    Re: Ferrari F70 mule spied! (So much less camouflage)

    Futch...........kiss

    I must have missed the part you switched from all black to red/black. 

    Enjoy your new toy to the fullest!!
