Because I don’t know why, Ferrari is going to manufacturer a million-dollar, 863-horsepower gas/electric hybrid supercar called the *drumroll please* LaFerrari. *womp womp* Wow, and I was this close to putting my name on the waiting list.
The LaFerrari has more power than the McLaren P1, it’s also a hybrid made entirely of carbon fibre, it will do 62 mph under 3 seconds, and they will only make 499 while already having about 700 orders.
Who cares about how fast it can do 62MPH, how quickly can I get it to 88MPH? I’m asking for a friend and not me who totally doesn’t have a flux capacitor and no this isn’t a picnic basket full of dinosaur-sized condoms behind my back. They’re, uh, weather balloons.
Hit the jump for more pictures and and a video of the thing zoom around that gave me a boner even though I tried to fight it.Related Posts:

It’s another action-packed episode of the Engadget Show! Tim, Brian and Dana start things off by taking a look at the latest devices from RIM and discussing the BlackBerry’s future — or lack thereof — in the consumer space. Also on the reviews table is the latest in iPhone 5 KIRF technology.
Next up, Tim travels all the way to Italy, to get a tour or Ferrari’s factories and discuss what the high performance sports car might look like in the years and decades to come (hint: it will probably be red).
Fusion Garage Founder and CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan pops by the studio to show off the Grid 10 and Grid 4 and discuss why his company deserves another chance. Brian maxes out our travel budget swinging by Times Square to put Engadget’s name in lights on some cool new interactive billboards.
Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Julie Samuels pays us a visit to discuss the state of patent law in the US, in the wake of Google’s recently announced Motorola acquisition. Also, what the heck is up with the whole Apple / Samsung thing anyway? The show wraps up with a solo, guitar pedal-filled performance by Parts & Labor’s Dan Friel.
The video stream of the show is above, and you can also download us in HD below.

Is that regular ol’ Xbox 360 controller leaving you unfulfilled after a marathon session of Forza Motorsport 4? Don’t fret, Thrustmaster has announced the launch of its Ferrari 458 (F458) Italia Racing Wheel for Microsoft’s gaming console. The 11-inch wheel features a rubberized grip to stay comfy, built-in metal paddle shifters, a Manettino dial for mid-lap adjustments and progressive resistance to keep you on the straight and narrow. Not wanting to leave PS3 and PC racers in its dust, the company also revealed the TH8 RS gear shifter — which connects to the T500 RS or the outfit’s other PC wheel controllers via USB. This bad boy lets you release your inner Michael Schumacher with either H-pattern or sequential configurations plus 360-degree rotation adjustment to tailor the gearbox to your liking. Both the TH8 RS and the aforementioned F458 will be hitting your garage… er, game room in October for $ 180 and $ 90, respectively. Check out the full PR for the pair after the break, and make sure you fasten your seatbelt.

This is a picture of a luxury car pileup in Monaco. It makes me sad and happy at the same time because 1. it’s always sad to see something beautiful get damaged *eyes own battle-scarred face in mirror* but 2. I have a thing against insanely rich people. “Oh you jelly, GW?” Damn yeah I’m jelly! I’m Smucker’s as a mutherf***er.
The wealthy French Riviera city state of Monaco was the scene of a pileup involving five luxury cars with an estimated value of more than $ 1.1 million.
The collision, involving a Bentley Azure (worth an estimated $ 400,000), a Mercedes S Class ($ 120,000), a Ferrari F430 ($ 230,000), an Aston Martin Rapide ($ 230,000) and a Porsche 911 ($ 130,000), occurred in front of Monaco’s Place du Casino, according to Sky News.
The British TV network reported that the incident began when the Bentley scraped the side of the Mercedes before plowing into the Ferrari. Then, the Bentley proceeded to run into the Aston Martin and the Porsche.
Haha! So basically it was all the Bentley driver’s fault. *eying driver in picture* Oh look, it’s…”Don’t do it, GW!” Fine, FINE, but only because I backed through my garage door yesterday.

Thanks to Mr. Fancy, who may or may yes have been driving the Aston Martin.Related Posts:
The new Formula One season begins in March, and Ferrari is the first team to show its hand. Its new car, the F150 (so named to commemorate 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy), was launched just a few hours ago at its headquarters in Maranello—Italy, of course. Given that Formula One is poised to introduce a new series of regulations in the coming years, partly to make the sport more “green,” it’s probably worth a few minutes to check out some of the changes Ferrari has made to its flagship piece of engineering. Is it enough to dethrone Adrian Newey and the rest of Red Bull Racing? Prediction: no.
It should be noted that Ferrari had a pretty crummy year last year. Yes, one of its drivers, Spain’s Fernando Alonso, managed to come in second place, but for Ferrari second place might as well be last place; it’s a very New York Yankees mentality over there.
Where to begin? Looks, sure: not bad, Ferrari. I like the Italian tricolore on the wing there. But don’t get too excited, for Ferrari says the exterior is subject to further tweaks. “The car you will see at the first race will be completely different from the car you will see in Valencia [for pre-season testing, on February 1],” said Stefano Domenicali, Ferrari’s grand poobah.
Ferrari says the name of the game this year is reliability, which is funny because I seem to remember Red Bull having a number of reliability issues last year, too.
Kers returns this year. Kers, the kinetic energy recovery system, lets cars convert excess kinetic energy and put it toward useful ends rather than just be lost to friction. It’s not a new technology, but Williams said, when it was first introduced, that Kers represents the “first stepping stone” on the path toward environmental responsibility or some such.
The banning of the double diffuser means that Ferrari (and probably others) will abide by push-rod suspension. (Red Bull has used pull-rod for the last two years.)
Ferrari has also lowered the suspension a tad to “improve the flow of air beneath the car.”
Meanwhile, Red Bull, the reigning champions, will show off its new car in four days’ time, in Valencia. Adrian Newey will be there, triumphant, saying, “Look how great I am.”
Make your room all vroom vroom with the Oregon Scientific FSP301A-K Maranello Ferrari Speedometer Line Projection Clock. It features an eye-safe LED projector that will rotate 180 degrees with focus adjustment. It will also deliver the weather forecast with weather icons and the time can be set by synchronizing the clock and calendar to the official U.S. atomic clock via radio frequency broadcast.
The alarm sound is also selectable between a Ferrari racing engine sound or a standard beep alarm. Sadly no peeling out sound. The Oregon Scientific Maranello Ferrari Speedometer Line Projection Clock will cost you $ 154.99.
