ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCE

Ferrari did not leap into electrification, but rather worked its way toward the technology with its first hybrid hypercar, LaFerrari. While other automakers may boast that their cars are influenced by real-world development in Formula One, Maranello’s namesake might as well be dressed in Scuderia Ferrari livery.

The company also relied on its top clientele for input. Take for example the FXX program—hardly a mere focus group. Rather, Ferrari invited dedicated enthusiasts to test what the automaker barely attempted to disguise as a development mule cloaked in racing clothing. As Ferrari did not want collectors to speculate on the FXX, the costly program took the form of a subscription to the company’s development team.

After the FXX program ended, Ferrari stunned the 2013 Geneva Salon with the LaFerrari. Though billed as the successor to the Enzo, it had far more in common with the FXX. Behind its passenger compartment and within the F1-style carbon-fiber monocoque structure was the FXX’s 6.3-liter V-12 engine. The LaFerrari’s lines echoed its predecessor, though they were softened in contrast to the comparatively brutal Enzo. Flavio Manzoni from Ferrari’s in-house team of stylists is credited with its design, which will surely go down in history for vaulting the automaker into a new era.

On the global stage, the LaFerrari was immediately compared to competing hybrid-electric hypercars from England and Germany. The McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 both featured hybrid powertrains with electric-only modes, unheard of up to that point for such uncompromising performance-focused machines. The LaFerrari’s electric motor exists to support the 6.3-liter V-12, not to provide electric driving. Functioning like the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) used in Formula One cars, the LaFerrari harvests and stores kinetic energy produced when the Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes are applied, then reuses it when the driver requires full power. The electric boost adds 161 brake horsepower to the 6.3-liter V-12’s 789 brake horsepower, for a total system output of 949 brake horsepower.

The result is electrifying in every sense of the word. The sports car vaults to 100 km/h in a tick under three seconds; 200 km/h comes in a mere seven seconds and 300 km/h in 15 seconds. The LaFerrari will top out at 350 km/h, or about 217.5 mph.

Pirelli P-Zero Corsa rubber crafted from a Ferrari-specific compound puts the power to the ground, ensuring that the car is as stable at speed as it is winding down a curvy road. The LaFerrari weighed in at about 2,800 pounds unladen, an astoundingly low figure for such a high-tech hypercar. Magnetic dampers maintain a civilized ride, while an electronic rear differential further aids traction and acceleration through turns and uneven surfaces.

Though it is thoroughly capable of covering distance at an astounding rate, the LaFerrari has been praised by owners and media alike for its docile manners in everyday driving. The seven-gear F1-style dual-clutch transmission flips through the gears quickly, without a hint of low-speed hesitation. Additionally, the LaFerrari’s hybrid battery pack can be topped off at any household charger.

Only 499 LaFerraris were built. Production of the hardtop started in mid-2013 and ceased just after New Year’s Day 2016. Ferrari offered the car to exclusively its committed clientele, an ultra-elite upper crust of Maranello’s most faithful.

CHASSIS NUMBER 206832

Chassis 206832 rolled out of Ferrari’s Maranello factory in October 2014 destined for the United States. As shown on the window sticker, the vehicle was delivered through the Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley, New York and fitted with an optional sports exhaust system and carbon-fiber lower trim at the cost of $21,000. The exterior is nicely finished in Grigio Silverstone with a Rossi leather interior complimented by ample amounts of carbon fiber trim and Alcantara.

Now offered on behalf of Blue Chip in Denver, Colorado, this LaFerrari was formerly owned by professional golfer and four-time major champion Rory McIlroy. It remains in superb condition with just 881 miles showing on the odometer at the time of cataloging. Invoices confirm yearly service performed at both Ferrari and Maserati dealerships in Plam Beach Florida. Furthermore, select components of the hybrid system are covered by an extended warranty and maintenance program effective between August 2022 and August 2024. A Ferrari “Attestation for Special Series Vehicles” book will accompany the car upon sale.

The pinnacle of Ferrari’s road-car development, the LaFerrari further extends a long lineage of era-defining supercars like the 288 GTO, F40, F50, and the Enzo. As offered, Chassis 206832 is unreservedly worthy of its stature as the ultimate roadgoing Ferrari model ever conceived, built, and offered to the world.
