Exclusivity is a major drawcard of owning a Ferrari. Needless to say, the Maranello company’s latest open-top effort is already sold out on the day of its debut.
Say hello to the LaFerrari Aperta – that’s fancy for ‘without a roof’. The car made its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show and unlike the picture renderings we received earlier, this showing came with a commercial starring none other than the prancing horse’s star driver, Sebastian Vettel.
Only 209 samples of the LaFerrari Aperta have been built with 200 going to ‘regular’ customers and the remaining 9 staying with Ferrari for event duties during 2017 in preparation for its 70th anniversary. The cost to call an Aperta your own? US$2,000,000.
A closer look at the car reveals a removable carbon-fibre hard top and a removable soft top whilst everything else in the running department is the same as a standard LaFerrari – 6.3-litre V12 with KERS technology bringing total power up to 949hp and 900Nm of torque. Modifications were made to retain the car’s torsional rigidity without a roof as were some aerodynamic refinements to keep the drag coefficient down during open-top driving.
Now watch and listen to that thing sing in the video above.
