Ferrari revealed the LaFerrari Aperta, and yeah, it's already sold out
30 September 2016 - Autoblog
We saw this one coming as far away as the mid-engine Corvette: The LaFerrari is getting a convertible version.
Publically revealed Thursday at the Paris Motor Show, the LaFerrari Aperta promises the same performance as the regular LaFerrari – with an open-air design. We had seen it already, actually, but today brought confirmation that it will be called Aperta, not Spider.
It's already sold out (duh) and will be limited to 209 copies. Two hundred of those go to regular people, or Ferrari customers anyway, and nine will be held back by the company to show off at events in 2017 as the automaker celebrates its 70th anniversary.
Ferrari says the LaFerrari Aperta maintains the torsional rigidity and aerodynamics of the hardtop. The powertrain is the same: a V12 paired with an electric motor and KERS technology to generate 949 total horsepower.
Meanwhile, Ferrari revealed details on five liveries to celebrate its 70th anniversary based on its current product line with a total of 350 units set to be produced. They are:
- The Steve McQueen, which takes inspiration from SMQ's iconic 1960s 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso.
- The Green Jewel, a green scheme based on the 365 P2 from Le Mans competition.
- The Stirling, which evokes a 250 GT Berlinetta SWB from 1961 driven to victory by Stirling Moss.
- The Schumacher, a red color scheme based on Ferrari's 2003 Formula One car piloted to seven victories by Michael Schumacher.
- The White Spider, a tribute to the 375 MM Pinin Farina Spider.
The company also showed the rear-wheel-drive, turbo V8-powered GTC4 Lusso T for the first time at an auto show. As you can tell, the Paris show is a busy one for Ferrari. That's fine with us.
