Recalling many design cues of the Enzo, the LaFerrari’s design is equally forward-thinking. Though no larger than the Enzo in footprint, even more impressive is that Ferrari managed to squeeze in both a 6.2-liter V-12 engine and a 120 kw electric motor. With 789 bhp on tap from the V-12 and an additional 161 bhp from the electric motor, total output is rated at 950 bhp. Despite the car’s massive output and powertrain, care of its advanced hybrid system, the LaFerrari’s carbon footprint is noticeably smaller when compared to the Enzo. Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show, the LaFerrari created global fanfare, and anyone with the means wanted Ferrari’s latest and greatest hypercar. Picking up the torch from the Enzo, LaFerrari continues the grand tradition of mid-engined Ferrari hypercars that began with the 288 GTO, a car which found its own inspiration from the legendary 250 GTO.
As limited as the LaFerrari was, Ferrari’s most important clients were in for an even more exciting open version, the Aperta. Offered to clients who already owned a LaFerrari, only 210 examples were built, with all pre-sold before its debut at the 2016 Paris Auto Show. During Ferrari’s 70-year history, there has never been another vehicle as eagerly anticipated or as technologically advanced as the LaFerrari Aperta—the result of seven decades of ingenuity, perseverance, creativity, passion, and success. The LaFerrari Aperta embodies every aspect of the company and its founder, Enzo Ferrari. Putting the company firmly at the forefront of automotive technology thus far in the 21st century, the LaFerrari Aperta combines lessons learned from Formula 1, Corse Clienti, and Ferrari’s road-going supercars of the past.
Delivered new to an American Ferrari collector, this LaFerrari Aperta was ordered in the classic combination of Roso Corsa over black with red accents throughout the interior. This Aperta has the very useful carbon-fiber hardtop option, which is far more practical than the standard cloth soft top. Other important options include the sport exhaust system, suspension lifter, Ferrari Telemetry, and several exterior carbon-fiber options, among others. Part of a large Ferrari collection, the Aperta has just 336 original miles and is in virtually new condition. Accompanying the car are all factory accessories, including the car cover, spare key, top cover, owner’s manuals, emergency soft-top, and Amalgam model.
For the uppermost echelon of Ferrari collectors, the LaFerrari Aperta epitomizes what Ferrari is today: a company that provides cars with the utmost performance and exclusivity, honoring their past whilst looking toward the future through cutting-edge design and technology. Today it sits on the same pedestal that the Enzo did in the 2000s, the F50 of the 1990s, and the 250 GTO of the 1960s. The LaFerrari Aperta is without question the ultimate Ferrari road car of this century, and from the moment of its inception, it has been considered a must-have in any world-class collection of Ferraris.
