10. Its Electric Engine Alone Has the Power of a Hot Hatch
As if a 789-horsepower V12 wasn’t enough, the LaFerrari also utilizes a 161-horsepower electric hybrid system to boost its performance. That may not seem like much, but it’s practically like strapping an extra hot hatch engine into the car.
For example, the fourth generation Volkswagen GTI hot hatch was beloved for its brisk acceleration. It produced a mere 180 horsepower from its turbocharged four-cylinder. The first generation Mini Cooper S was another beloved hot hatch. Its supercharged four-cylinder produced 168 horsepower. Essentially, the LaFerrari has an electric engine as powerful as a zippy hot hatch strapped to its monstrous V12, giving it a combined 949 horsepower.
