One of the 499 LaFerrari owners has decided to take his expensive automobile to get it chip-tuned.

After recently purchasing Ferrari's latest flagship model, one customer decided to ask aftermarket specialists from JMB Optimering in Halmstad, Sweden to work on the supercar's V12 6262cc naturally-aspirated engine. In its standard configuration the engine generates 800 PS (588 kW) at 9,000 rpm and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm. Together with the electric motor, the LaFerrari puts out 963 PS (708 kW) which should be more than enough for most of us.

However, JMB Optimering is working to increase the total output of this grey LaFerrari to somewhere in the region of 1,050 PS (772 kW). The additional oomph will be squeezed from the twelve cylinder engine via chip tuning and this output matches that of the rumored track-only LaFerrari XX set to be launched next year in a limited series of 30 units.
