Default Ferrari's first-ever hybrid looks terrific: Ratan Tata

Mods : Please move to appropriate forum if required.

Slated to go on sale later this year, priced from 650,000 euros, the production version of the car mates a 4.6 litre V8 engine with two electric motors - one in front and one in the rear - with a combined output of 770 horsepower and a projected top speed of more than 325 km/h.


Billionaire industrialist Ratan Tata pored over every inch of the new million-euro LaFerrari on the Italian supercar maker's stand at the Geneva auto show.

Ferrari's first-ever hybrid "looks terrific", said Tata, one of India's wealthiest businessmen and a close friend of Ferrari chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.

But will he buy one?

"I don't have the money," Tata joked.

The issue is moot: every one of the 499 LaFerraris slated for production is already spoken for. Sergio Marchionne, chief executive of Ferrari's parent company Fiat, says he has reserved one of them.

I found that La Ferrari & Mclaren P1 scary from the back but Lamborghini Veneno just took it to another level. It looks as if the car is mad and is going to rip you apart. It's hyper car mad as it should be.

You are right. And the reason is that the Vehicle Development Team handling the QOROS programme are top drawer automotive talent drawn from across the world mostly from German and Japanese OEM's.
QOROS also meets all current crash testing norms prevalent in Europe and US w.r.t. full frontal, offset frontal, side impact, pole test,rear crash, rollover and pedestrian protection.
This is a company to watch. Maybe the next Hyundai in the making 15 years from now.

Default Limited Edition - Dacia Duster "Adventure"

Limited Edition - Dacia Duster "Adventure" revealed in Geneva!

You can chose from two exterior colours (black and white). There's also a set of 16-inch black steelies, two roofbar-mounted spotlights, front and rear skidpads, red arrows marking the tow and jacking points, and side protection with Duster markings. Inside, it's got some logos on the seats and a waterproof Garmin satnav system and thick plastic floor mats.

Any particular reason why these don't get the alloys but steelies. IMO Alloys give a more upmarket feel. Also, In case of soft-roading, do alloys or steelies make any difference ?
