The LaFerrari has been officially revealed at the Geneva motor show, setting up the most eagerly anticipated showdown of recent history as it battles for supremacy and sales among the super-rich with the McLaren P1.

LaFerrari -– or ‘The Ferrari’ –- is the successor to the Ferrari Enzo hypercar and it is already clear that while McLaren has set out to build what it calls the ‘ultimate driver’s car’, Ferrari has set out to build the fastest, most extreme car ever made.

Consequently, every performance figure Ferrari has quoted exceeds those of McLaren. That may be no coincidence, as Ferrari released details a week later than its rival, giving the opportunity to ensure it came out on top by revealing only what it wanted to.

What’'s clear, though, is this battle will continue to run. While LaFerrari will inevitably capture all the main headlines from the Geneva motor show, the ultimate verdict can only be delivered when the two cars leave the motor show stands and are driven in anger.

I'm not sure which is more

I'm not sure which is more remarkable: the way these cars look or the fact that I like the look of a Ferrari... never thought I'd say that, but the unfortunately named LaFerrari does look absolutely stunning. Shame they will almost all end up in museums or in the Middle East.
