MARANELLO, Italy — Scuderia Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso checks out the 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari on the test track in a new video.

Alonso is said to be helping Ferrari tweak the LaFerrari's track performance ahead of the start of production later this year. The LaFerrari — a hybrid — captured much of the spotlight at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show. It will be one of the most highly desired collectors' cars in the world.

Only 499 will be built and they are all sold.

Although he does not have a speaking role in the video, Alonso was all smiles after his drive. He reportedly has been influential in the LaFerrari's driving position and location of controls.

Ferrari had little official word on the new video, saying in an accompanying text: "With a few days to go before they head off for Shanghai and the third round of the Formula 1 World Championship, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were in Maranello for a busy program of sports, technical and promotional activity."

Edmunds says: It's always good to get the nod from an F1 driver, even if he's on your payroll.
