TMJ's New Hybrid Purple Ferrari Causes A Stir At Johor Stadium
When the Tunku Mahkota Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ), drove up to the local Johor stadium in his stunning new 'LaFerrari’ to watch the friendly match between Johor Darul Takzim dan Geylang United on Tuesday, you can guess how the crowds reacted.
The latest addition to his fleet of exotic automobiles is a 2015 Ferrari 'LaFerrari', of which only 499 exist in the world.
Clad casually in dark t-shirt, shorts and sneakers, the prince clearly let his stunning purple beauty hog all the attention that night.
His dramatic arrival at the Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Hassan Stadium for the friendly match was shared on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page yesterday gaining over 21,000 likes and over 726 shares.
The rare supercar model is part of the exclusive club of only 3 hybrid supercars, which includes the Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1, according to gtspirit.com.
Equipped with a carbon fibre body, 949 hp and sporting the latest premium hybrid technology, LaFerrari's estimated value on the road is around USD1.4 million (about RM5.94 million).
For car buffs, LaFerrari sports a 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine produces 789hp and 700Nm and is supplemented by a HY-KERS unit for a total output of 949hp and 900Nm of torque, according to carlist.my.
For the rest of us, its just a joy to behold and judging by the comments attached to the Facebook post, most Malaysians are equally excited and pleased that the Johor prince decided to take the car out for a spin. - mD
