Chris Harris had the privilege of being one of the very few to test drive the LaFerrari.

Last month, Chris Harris announced plans to leave YouTube channel /DRIVE and he was quick enough to start his own series called Chris Harris on Cars. For the most recent episode, he got the chance to take the LaFerrari for a ride on Maranello's surrounding roads and then he headed to Ferrari's own Fiorano private test track to unleash the 963 HP beast.

He says the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 are in a class of their own, but Ferrari's flagship supercar is more enjoyable thanks to its naturally aspirated V12 6262cc engine pumping out 800 HP (588 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) at 6,750 rpm. The conventional engine works with an electric motor adding 163 HP (120 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft), with the output being sent to the wheels via a 7-speed DCT.

We remind you the LaFerrari can do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 3 seconds while the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) takes under 7 seconds. It needs 15 seconds to reach 186 mph (300 km/h) from a standstill and tops out at more than 217 mph (350 km/h).

Chris Harris was also impressed by the massive braking power provided by the Brembo carbon ceramic brakes measuring 398 x 223 x 36mm front / 380 x 253 x 34 mm rear and he also enjoyed how despite all that power, it handles superbly thanks to the EF1-TRAC (F1 electronic traction control integrated with the hybrid setup), ESC stability control and a third generation electronic differential.

Ferrari is making only 499 units of their Enzo successor and all of them have already been sold, each for $1.69 million. However, some customers have agreed to pay an extra $1.67 million to get the supercar delivered faster than originally agreed. It's the same story with McLaren P1 buyers accepting to pay an additional $504,000 while anxious Porsche 918 Spyder clients shell out $335,000 more to receive the vehicle earlier.
