Rumor: Ferrari working on the LaFerrari Spider

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 18, 2014

LaFerrari is already sold out and Ferrari already announced that it will offer a track-only version that will arrive early next year. If you were not among the 499 lucky customers who bought one for $1.4 million and you don’t want the LaFerrari XX track-only version you might get lucky enough to buy the LaFerrari Spider.

According to MotorAuthority, the open-top version of the LaFerrari might be offered and will fetch around $2.8 million, double the price of the coupe version. Still, just like the SA Aperta a.k.a. the open-top version of the Ferrari 599 GTB, the LaFerrari Spider will be offered only to company’s most loyal customers.

The vehicle is expected to use the same 6.3-liter V12 engine found on the coupe version that delivers 800 hp and 700 Nm of torque, but also the electric motor that generates 163 hp (120 kW).

With a total output of 963 hp, the hybrid system pushes the coupe version from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds.

Meanwhile, the LaFerrari XX is expected to be the most powerful version with a total output of 1,050 hp.

This means that the LaFerrari XX will be more powerful than the recently announced McLaren P1 GTR, which will get “only”1,000 hp. The P1 GTR will use a smaller 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as well as an electric motor.

Ferrari is expected to offer only 30 units of the XX, while the Spider will be available to only 50 lucky customers.
