There is a plaque on the LaFerrari's steering wheel (in the circle) which carries the name of the owner.

The show car displayed at Geneva carries a familiar name, Fernando Alonso

EDIT:: Adding an actual pic of the same.

Don't the Enzo and Aventador have an analog tacho?

Wow, talk about exclusivity!

Also, first shot of the interior looks like it has an analog tacho and the second has a digital tacho?

Nope, the Aventador as well as the LaFerrari has digital speedo/tacho (switchable) made to look like analog ones. Lexus LFA and Merc S too gets the same thing.

Here is the dash of the Aventador Roadster I shot.

An Indian journalist has tweeted that India could possibly get 2 of these with a price tag exceeding 12cr !
I thought all of the 499 units were sold out.

I do not know what the Indian journalist was thinking, but with the import duties on CBU vehicles going up further by 25% as announced in the 2013 Budget a few days ago, the La' Ferrari should be a Minimum of 25crores ex showroom. And at that price my friend, i dont expect to see one of these in Indian roads, just like the Enzo.


To that comes to my mind the question as to how far an Indian customer will go to buy a Hypercar with the duties and roads that we have?

Yes, i too feel the same. But i guess those 2 guys along with A.P are awaiting deliveries of their F12 Berlinettta's first. Let's hope the LaFerrari turns up in their garages later.

Rohin Nagrani of BS Motoring. I hope he is right!

Yup, I agree with you. Some of these journos can be overenthusiastic at times!

Thanks.

A lil' correction, RSM is getting an F12. Goa guy is getting an FF. I'm not sure if AP is getting anything new, I believe he was invited on the grounds that he already bought two cars from the dealer (458 and FF).

RSM & Goa guys cars are kept for sale at Ferrari,New Delhi. A friend told me A.P is upgrading to the Berlinetta as well, his 458 is for sale in Delhi , not sure if its with Exclusive or Ferrari dealership.

About 5 to 6 expressions of interest from India for #LaFerrari. India could get possibly, at least 2 cars. Landed price to exceed Rs 12 cr!
Is what it says on Rohit Nagrani's Twitter page. But I thought only 2 people were invited for the private preview. RSM is getting an F12, I doubt he's buying the LaFerrari too! :P

These are options which can be deleted.They will give you the owner name and the flag of the owner country as standard,if you want you can opt out.

Makes me wonder,what happens if someone sells it.

An Italian magazine,while talking to one of the Ferrari people have got the allocation of different countries for that car.Apparently 3 are allocated for India.BUT i highly doubt any will make here.Because i dont see why would Ferrari sell any car in India because no Indian owner IN india has owned an F40,288GTo,Enzo,FXX or atleast an Corse Clienti which i would expect to be a minimum requirements

The Diffuser plays a huge part in this.

How does it work?

The air travelling under the car is always faster than the air travelling over and around a car.This is further helped by a flat undertray,front splitters,vanes which further channel the air under the body.However when this fast moving car comes out of the car and merges which the slow moving air it causes a lot of wake turbulence,vortexes and this causes drag at high speed.In order to turn this into an advantage,a diffuser is used.

Its work like its name it diffuses the air and makes it slower,always it to expand and merge fast with the slower air from top.This also allows the air from the under car to be "extracted faster".Once this air is being extracted faster the air under the car retains its high velocity.As you know higher velocity,lower pressure.Low pressure underneath the car,higher pressure(slower moving air) over the car.Hence a force pointed down is exterted on the car.

This is a very basic understanding on mine.LaFerrari and modern cars use way more complicated ways.More knowledgeable people can add.

I think the weight has not been revealed.Atleast thats what i remember from the press release and from various sites.They had held back the weight.The 1255 kgs is a guesstimate.Not sure though.

Anyways great feature indeed

Thank you very much for the reply but I'm aware of how the diffuser works. Big fan of the 2009 double decker diffuser of the brawn F1 car!
Can't wait for lap times for this vehicle : )))

Whoops. That's what I said. Earlier it was a less clear picture and I had drawn a circle around the plaque to highlight it. Forgot to remove the "in the circle" part when I added the new pic
