But the McLaren has no soul, it doesn't sound as nice, it's name is that of a fax machine, it's not a Ferrari :laugh:

And to think the P1 did it in wet / damp conditions. Imagine what the number will be when the Ring is actually dry.:bitenails:

There isn't even an unofficial time for LaFerrari. What are they supposed to be "taking" exactly?

I cannot comprehend how people still don't understand this. It's "LaFerrari". Not "Ferrari LaFerrari" or "The Ferrari LaFerrari" or "The Ferrari the Ferrari", just "LaFerrari". Say it slowly a few times until you get the hang of it.

Not true. Clarkson seemed pretty impressed by the P1 while he wasn't with the 12C.

Sorry but you're incorrect.The model name is LaFerrari. The manufacturer, Ferrari. Therefore the full name is the Ferrari LaFerrari. That is the official name, and when the lucky (in the sense of being selected to purchase, not afford) owners register their LaFerrari, it will be listed as a Ferrari LaFerrari. Also when one is for sale on cars.com, you will search for a Ferrari LaFerrari. Car and Driver website: 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari. Etc...

while that is technically correct that it will show up as Ferrari LaFerrari on a registration, the Ferrari CEO has said the full name of the car is LaFerrari.

Coming out the gates being a badass.

"Take that Ferrari" implies it's their turn to wow us. They have stated it will be the fastest hypercar imaginable but have released no testing figures. The lowly Porsche 918 came out of nowhere with a 6:57 and that set the benchmark between the 3.

And on paper, it's Ferrari LaFerrari, dubbed only as LaFerrari to the industry as it's nickname. You think Bono's social security card says Bono?

Wait for it...

the Ferrari CEO has said the full name of the car is LaFerrari.
Boom.

Bingo. :wink:
Registration =/= the actual name of the car, that depends entirely on what country the car is in. Think of it like a parent giving their kid two middle names in their home country, and then moving to the US and it gets forced to be one.

And sorry, but cars.com/Car and Driver have no say over the name either. Just because they label it as such, doesn't mean that it is. Why you would think that is beyond me.

I'm still in disbelief that a Porsche hybrid car came under 7 seconds officially on street configuration. We can't forget just how innovative that is for a car of its properties.

Imagine if Porsche would have developed a proper challenger for Mclaren and Ferrari? I personally think Porsche would have crowned the lap time.

The 918 Spyder is LaFerrari and P1's rival. Nearly as much HP as the P1 with even more torque.

You're forgetting the most important thing, the weight. The 918 weighs almost a half ton more than the P1 and LaFerrari.
