Not only is the LaFerrari the first car in 40 years to be developed in-house, but it is the first Ferrari to make use of a hybrid powertrain. In true Ferrari fashion, it has nothing to do with the economy, but all to do with power and speed. The highly-strung 6.3-litre V12 lurking under the engine cover must be one of the most intimidating and ferocious production engines ever offered to the buying public, and even without the aid of forced induction, manages to feel faster in a straight line than its great rivals, the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918. Only 499 of these cars were built, and they have almost doubled in value since launch. It's a thing of beauty and speed and encapsulates what Ferrari is all about. Long live The Ferrari. When it first appeared on the market, buyers could expect to pay around $1,500,000.
