Apple and Ferrari coming together
This coming together of Apple and Ferrari certainly is no big surprise!! In November, Eddy Cue, Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services joined Ferrari's Board of Directors.
He had said in a press release at the time, "I have personally dreamed of owning a Ferrari since I was 8 years old and have been lucky to be an owner for the past 5 years."
Moreover, in April of last year, Luca met with Tim Cook and claimed that their two companies were “connected by the same passion, the same love for the product, maniacal attention to technology, but also to design.”
The hybrid "LaFerrari," delivers a staggering 949 horsepower via a 789-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 gasoline engine and a 160-horsepower electric motor.
The next-generation supercar can go from 0-60 in just three seconds and can get up to 124 mph in less than 7 seconds. The new creation maxes out at an astounding 249 mph.
This 4-passenger, 963 horsepower whip comes with Eyes Free feature for Siri that allows drivers to get information using just their voice while driving. The company has embedded two Apple iPad minis into the passenger seat for in-car entertainment.
Only 499 models of LaFerrari are being released by the automaker each of which will sell for at least 1 million euros ($1.3 million).
Cue tweeted about the launch of the new LaFerrari saying, “Ferrari does it once again… it is stunning".
