Fernando Alonso takes Ferrari’s latest supercar for a spin (VIDEO)


Before Formula One’s “summer vacation” got rolling, Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso took some time to take advantage of the perks that come by riding with the Prancing Horse.

The two-time World Champion, who has battled mightily to keep Ferrari in this year’s title race, was recently able to sample the marque’s latest road-faring supercar, the LaFerrari. The hybrid machine, of which only 499 models will be made, pumps out an impressive 963 horsepower thanks to both its V12 engine and KERS system, and also has a 0-60 mph time of less than three seconds.

Earlier this week, the marque released a video clip of Alonso putting the LaFerrari through its paces. You can check it out at the top.
