Do you ever wonder what challenges automakers have in selling limited edition cars? It’s different for each company but it can get stressful if the demand is high instead of the other way around. For instance, Enrico Galliera, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer of Ferrari recently sent out 200 boxes each containing a key of the limited-edition LaFerrari Aperta to their preferred clients, and all 200 of them bought the new model without even knowing how it looks. It’s crazy particularly when you factor in that each vehicle has a $3.9 million price tag.
Obviously, the company has no problems when it comes to marketing its cars. In fact, it did not even have to market the car publicly and it didn’t even divulge its price. The open-roof Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 gasoline-hybrid powertrain generating 950 horsepower.
In an interview with The Drive, Ferrari said that they always have a much higher demand than their supplies. So what they do is they try and identify which of their customers deserve the limited edition car. Galliera added that he considers the LaFerrari Aperta as a gift to their best customers - even if they have to pay millions for it.Read the entire article 2018 LaFerrari Aperta units have sold out, Ferrari is pressured to resolve long waiting lists
Many people wish to own at least one sports car sometime in their lives. But there are those lucky ones who don’t just have one of them. In fact, we know a couple of people who collect sports cars. But they usually don’t make these purchases sound like they’re getting candy from a store. Well, Floyd Mayweather had recently said that he bought not just one Ferrari LaFerrari. Rather, he got a pair.
There have been a lot of hype lately with Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor’s upcoming fight. Both guys have been throwing a lot of trash talking toward each other, while traveling the world. In one of their face-to-face confrontations, they got the crowd cheering and chanting. After this confrontation, there was a video of Mayweather that was published by FightHype wherein he had a check worth $100 million. In the same video, he bragged that he had just purchased two LaFerraris, one in white while the other is red.
As mentioned earlier, Mayweather is one of the biggest car collectors out there, being the owner of a Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, and a few Rolls-Royces. So it should not be a surprise that he got himself a pair of LaFerraris. But what will he do with both?Read the entire article Mayweather brags about buying a pair of LaFerraris before McGregor fight
From the moment that Ferrari pulled the wraps off the LaFerrari, each of the 500 examples has been spoken for albeit the seven-digit price tag. As it is armed with a hybrid powertrain that delivers a combined 950hp and 664lb-ft of torque, not to mention its very superb design, it isn’t hard to realize why the hypercar nearly sold like hot pancakes.
Besides, it is unusual for an upcoming car (then Enzo’s successor) to have been built on so much hype. There were endless teasers, concept drawings and even wild speculations concerning the LaFerrari’s specs before its debut. At the end of it, the Italian hypercar boasts a high revving V12 engine with electric motor featuring HY-KERS (or Kinetic Energy Recovery System that is), which charges the batteries either by means of the engine or with the use of regenerative braking.
The 6.3-liter engine has a peak power of 800PS (789hp) at 9,000 rpm. To push the hypercar’s total power output by up to 963PS (950hp) and 900Nm (664lb-ft) of powerful torque, the electric motor ekes out an additional 163PS (160hp). With both power plants working at the same time, the LaFerrari can sprint from 0-62 miles per hour (0-100km/h) in less than 3 seconds and 0-186mph (0-300km/h) in 15 seconds before reaching a top speed of 217mph (350km/h).Read the entire article Check out these renderings of Ferrari LaFerrari successor a.k.a.

Surely, you guys are all familiar with the scene when a local store goes out of business: usually, a big “CLEARANCE SALE” shows up, waving you inside, urging you to make a last-minute shopping before it closes up for good and you miss all the good stuff you could’ve bought back when it was still in business. Well, this may be some kind of business strategy for some in the hopes of increasing their sales before that “closing date”.
This scenario is actually very similar with how Ferrari goes on with its business – not that we’re saying this automotive tycoon is going out of business because we don’t think it ever will. The point is, Ferrari likes making these “last chance” vibe every now and then, especially with their hypercars, making you feel sorry for not being able to purchase one when you had the chance. But of course, this “last chance” strategy works really well (apparently for those who can afford these hypercars) and only means that there’s something better in store – the latest example is the Ferrari LaFerrari.
According to Ferrari Chief Technology Officer Michael Leiters, a better replacement (read: faster and stronger) of the Ferrari LaFerrari is in the works, and may be available three to five years from now. From reports, this new hypercar will come with more innovative technologies but will also be practical for road use. Looks like we’ll have to make another countdown, eh?Read the entire article Successor of Ferrari LaFerrari in the works – coming three to five years from now
Held every two years since 2011, RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba alongside the shores of Lake Como in Italy, will be putting up for auction an impressive trio of hybrid hypercars on the 27th of May. The trio consists of: a Ferrari LaFerrari, a road-legal conversion of the McLaren P1 GTR, and a Porsche 918 Spyder. In the past three events they have held, the auction house has never had these three hypercars, all at the same time. So for those of you who have a lot saved in the bank, it’s your chance to bid on these bad boys.
Let us get into the details of each one. First, the LaFerrari has a classic Ferrari body paint of a Rosso Corsa red and black accents on the roof and side mirrors. As for the interior, it comes with matching black leather and crimson details. It only has 112 miles (180 kilometers) of mileage, since it was first bought in 2014, and after having two owners. This model has an estimated market price of €2.65 million to €3.2 million euros.
Up next would be the McLaren P1 GTR. This 986 horsepower (725 kilowatt) hypercar features the LM conversion by Lanzante Motorsport. Being just one of ten models that have been converted into a road-legal track-only hypercar, this one has got to be pricey. Another factor that has raised the price is the fact that it has only been driven 224 miles. The auction house estimates this one to be priced at €3.2 million to €3.6 million.Read the entire article Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 GTR up for auction at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba
It’s a pretty common sight for Ferrari cars to be painted in many different colours, apart from classic red. And you might think you have seen it all - from red, to blue, to yellow, white, black, and to silver. Well, the Ferrari LaFerrari hasn’t gone through the entire whole colour wheel just yet. In fact, when a matte bronze LaFerrari coupe made its way through the roads of Monaco, many jaws dropped.
LaFerrari, which literally means “The Ferrari”, is a 2-door hybrid sports car that was built by Ferrari. The 2013 model is only limited to 499 units, while there are only 200 units of the 2016 LaFerrari Aperta. This car is actually dubbed “the most valuable 21st century automobile” because on December 3, 2016 – a limited edition model was sold at an auction for $7 million. That is equivalent to £5,743,500.
Several images have surfaced on social media showing a colour on a LaFerrari that we have never seen before -- bronze paint with a matte finish, dubbed Bronze Opaco. According to GTspirit, this specific shade was specially curated by Ferrari’s Tailor Made department for the LaFerrari.Read the entire article Matte bronze Ferrari LaFerrari coupe gets plenty of attention in Monaco
Could this be a special version of Ferrari’s much acclaimed LaFerrari? No matter how we look at it, the patent images for this sports car from Ferrari indicate its striking resemblance to the LaFerrari coupe.
Actually, the Italian sports car maker filed in August 2016 to register or patent the design of a sports car with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). While it has been around six months since the application was filed, the images were only recently published on the Web site of the EUIPO. This design was patented by Ferrari S.p.A. and was penned by no other than the carmaker’s chief of design, Flavio Manzoni – the same man responsible for the stunning automotive artwork called the LaFerrari.
While this patented design very much looks like the LaFerrari, there is an array of differences that point out how distinct it is from the actual vehicle. For instance, the bonnet of this sports car is much cleaner and neater -- marked by a recess on the center potion going to the windshield -- than that of the La Ferrari. Likewise, while the bonnet of the LaFerrari is seemingly pointed to the front, the hood of the patented sports car isn’t. In addition, the patented sports car features massive front air vents in carbon fiber as well as a prominent front splitter.Read the entire article Design patent reveals possible special edition Ferrari model based on LaFerrari
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay isn’t only famous for his cooking. He’s also known for throwing tactless remarks on live TV. What some people don’t know is that the same dude owns several limited edition Ferraris. Well, at least now we couldn’t blame the guy for his extraordinary taste. And guess what? Ramsay is also one of the lucky people to have the latest LaFerrari Aperta delivered at his doorstep. Exactly.
First of all, Ferrari’s limited edition LaFerrari Aperta comes with a 6.3L, naturally aspirated V12 engine. Then, it boasts an output of up to 950 hp and goes from 0-62 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds. Just like Formula 1’s kinetic recovery system, the Aperta uses a combination of hybrid technologies for its engine.
As anyone would’ve expected, Ramsay immediately took a video of his “giant spider” to share on social media. The British chef after all has over two million followers on Instagram. He must have been waiting for this moment after he proclaimed weeks ago (via Top Gear) that put in an order for Ferrari’s most insane and probably most expensive convertible.Read the entire article Gordon Ramsay drives his 950 hp LaFerrari Aperta in London [w/video]
When Ferrari commenced sales of the Ferrari LaFerrari three years ago, it gave the limited production hybrid supercar a starting price of over $1.4 million. Even today, this price tag is already considered very high. The Italian carmaker only produced 499 examples of LaFerrari, and that is one reason why this supercar has become a highly expensive collector’s item as it changes hands.
How about selling a LaFerrari at a price tag of EUR10 million ($10.74 million)? Well, a group called Garage Pereira Guillaume S.A. is selling a red Ferrari LaFerrari at the online automotive marketplace Mobile.de at the same exact price. According to the listing, this Ferrari LaFerrari was registered in March 2014 and so far has 1,700 kilometers (1,056 miles). Pictures say that this LaFerrari is in good condition. But at EUR10 million, this price of a LaFerrari could be considered insane. That is more than seven times pricier than the original tag of a new LaFerrari three years ago.
But this is not the first time that a non-brand new LaFerrari was sold more than its original price. Last year, a hefty buyer in Florida bought a LaFerrari from the Naples Motorsport dealership for $5 million or more than 3.5 times its original price. However, compared to the LaFerrari being sold at Mobile.de, this example has only been driven 202 miles! This means that Garage Pereira Guillaume’s LaFerrari has traveled over five times the distance than that of Naples Motorsport’s.Read the entire article A red Ferrari LaFerrari is being sold for an astonishing EUR10 million

All examples of the LaFerrari coupe have been sold out. Perhaps, that is what you’ve thought all this time. In a sense, that is true, since all of LaFerrari coupe’s 499 examples have been sold out and have been delivered to their respective owners. The hypercar, which was introduced in 2013, had cost a hefty $1.4 million each.
However, there exists the 500th and last example of the LaFerrari coupe. On top of that, it is a one-off version with special livery and interior. This extra-special Ferrari model pays homage to its home country, Italy, as evidenced by the colors of the Italian flag on its nose and by a distinct plaque in the cabin.
To find the new owner of the last Ferrari LaFerrari coupe, Ferrari has tapped auction house RM Sotheby’s to hold a charity auction of the last LaFerrari coupe. Yes, you read it right – this is an auction event in which proceeds will be used to help reconstruct Central Italy that was heavily damaged in the earthquake disaster this year. After all, this LaFerrari coupe is Ferrari’s gift to Italy as announced by Ferrari chairman and chief executive, Sergio Marchionne in August 2016.Read the entire article Last LaFerrari to be put under the hammer on December 3 at Daytona International Speedway
Fans of Josh Cartu know that in addition to being a social media celebrity, he also races with celebrated Italian racing team AF Corse. However Cartu is also known for his collection of Ferraris, one of which is the Ferrari F12tdf. Recently, this entrepreneur has revealed the latest addition to his collection which is the LaFerrari Aperta in white.
This model was first unveiled by the Prancing Horse during the 2016 Paris Auto Show and Cartu is one of the few who managed to get his hands on this excellent beauty early. In terms of visuals, this version looks better compared to the ones in the promotional film and even on the model that was displayed at Paris. In addition to the white color, there is the subtle black livery where there are pinstripes which go through the bonnet’s center. This is then complemented by the wing mirrors and the wheels, both in black.
Based on the images that Cartu shared, the doors of his LaFerrari Aperta have clearly been redesigned, particularly the opening mechanism, as there is no fixed roof. As such, the doors instead open at a certain angle in a manner that is similar to the McLaren’s butterfly doors. While Ferrari has yet to officially release a price for the LaFerrari Aperta, estimates reveal that the early units, totaling 200, are expected to cost at least $2 million each. Still, considering this model’s appeal, it won’t come as a surprise that once delivery is accepted, the prices will increase significantly. Indeed, this will make the LaFerrari Aperta a strong investment.Read the entire article Josh Cartu treats social audience to first look at white LaFerrari Aperta
It has been a while since rumours about an open-top Ferrari LaFerrari surfaced. Speculations of the bespoken LaFerrari Spider have been around since 2014 and they have finally been put to rest after Ferrari’s newest CEO Sergio Marchionne announced earlier this year that the car, which it has now named as the LaFerrari Aperta, is well on its way to production. That plus a private event served especially for its most loyal customers make it crystal clear that the open-top version of the hypercar Holy Trinity member is ready to hit the roads.
The LaFerrari Spider is set to debut during the 2016 Paris Motor Show at the end of September this year. Technical specifications, characteristics and its final name will be revealed at the upcoming event and so all eyes and ears are on Ferrari right now.
It is estimated that the droptop version will cost more than the $1.4 million standard version, most probably a 40% increase. And just like its predecessor, the LaFerrari Spider will be limited to only a couple of units which some speculate will come between 150 to 200 cars only. The droptop version will come with the same 6.3-liter hybrid V12 but with an additional 163 horsepower coming from an electric motor producing a total of 963 horsepower. Its chassis and aerodynamics have been modified and upgraded to maintain performance and to ensure its drag coefficient. The LaFerrari Spider is expected to feature a removable carbon-fiber hard top as well as a removable soft top. To top it all off, Ferrari engineers have maintained the torsional rigidity and beam stiffness similarly found in the standard LaFerrari.Read the entire article Open-top Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta unveiled, set to debut at 2016 Paris Motor Show
Earlier this year, Ferrari announced that it will be working on a convertible version of one of the greatest hypercars of this generation, the Ferrari LaFerrari. During a private event which the Italian automaker hosted earlier this year, little carbon fiber boxes were distributed to their most loyal owners – specifically, FXX K owners. The boxes were in a sophisticated black color with red linings and its cover had a sketch of what looked like an outlined silhouette of the convertible LaFerrari.
Ferrari’s new CEO and head of FCA, Sergio Marchionne, has also recently revealed that the LaFerrari Spider is already all set and ready to go for production. Potential buyers of the said convertible have already been contacted by the company. Ferrari is said to produce only 150 to 200 units of the Spider but that number is still unverified. There are also speculations that the Ferrari Spider will cost more than $1.7 million or may be double the price of the LaFerrari coupe.
Other than the information that we have mentioned, there’s not much that Ferrari is willing to give out for this most anticipated convertible. However, there have been photos that have been revolving around the internet that shows a miniature version of the LaFerrari Spider. It may not be a life size version but it would sure give us some hint of what to expect of the styling.Read the entire article Miniature version of LaFerrari Spider offers sneak peek of hypercar convertible
Speculators are going wild with the news that Sergio Marchionne, Ferrari CEO, has confirmed plans for the LaFerrari Spider. According to a report by Mobile.de, a Rosso red LaFerrari Spider is being sold by Investment Cars GmbH in the amount of €4,285,714, or around $4,885,285. This amount however does not include the value added tax of 19%, meaning it can likely raise its gross price to as high as €5,100,000, about $5,811,348.
While there may be some debate on whether the post at Mobile.de is indeed true, the company in question claims to have years of experience and a prowess at being able to find cars by having access to as well as direct contact, with a number of private collectors. This may pan out though as Marchionne claims that possible buyers have already been contacted regarding purchase of the vehicle. While there continues to be doubts, the post claims that only 70 units of the LaFerrari Spider will be manufactured.
The brand remains to be silent on the LaFerrari Spider but reports have said that it will have the standard doors with a removable roof that is composed of two different panels. Powering it probably is a 6.3-liter V12 engine supported with an electric motor. This combination allows the LaFerrari coupe to deliver total output at 963 horsepower. Though it can be a bit slower than the coupe as it accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in under 3 seconds, maximum speed is at 217 mph.Read the entire article Ferrari CEO confirms plans for LaFerrari Spider
The first of Ferrari’s mild hybrid sports cars, the Ferrari LaFerrari has earned the title as one of the best hybrid sports cars that has ever been developed. Only 499 units were produced from 2010 up to 2015. Each of these cars is sought after by Ferrari fans and car collectors, easily beating any other exotic sports car in the market.
Being a hybrid, the LaFerrari runs on a 789-horsepower V12 engine and an additional 161 horsepower from its electric motor. It is capable of sprinting through tracks like a Bugatti Chiron but with a reduced displacement. It can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and has an estimated top speed of over 217 mph. At the Fiorano Test Circuit, the LaFerrari achieved a lap time of 1:19.70, making it the fastest road-legal Ferrari-made car.
Recently at an interview with Automobile Magazine, FCA head and Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that a Ferrari LaFerrari Spyder is set for production -- good news for those who were not able to purchase the coupe version of the hybrid sports car. Marchionne adds that they have already tapped potential customers for the LaFerrari Spyder, all the more making it even more believable that a convertible version is up for production.Read the entire article Fishy German online ad seeks to sell upcoming LaFerrari Spyder for $5.8 million

According to Forbes, an average motorist or driver will have to file a collision claim at least once every 17.9 years. And only three of every 1,000 accidents are fatalities. But this does not stop any adrenaline junkie from making one stupid decision.
And it doesn’t matter if it’s an ordinary sedan or a super car. Not even the richest Ferrari owner can ever tell when their 458 or F430 might end up in a car wreck. Every Ferrari vehicle costs millions of dollars; which is why it is expected that every Ferrari owner is downright filthy rich.
From multimillion dollar company owners and CEOs to the richest celebrities, every one of these people will always end up showing off their latest toys. And sometimes, some of these Ferrari owners can’t elude from the sad fate of having a scratched paint or worse, a car wreck.Read the entire article Top 4 Laferrari accidents around the world
The Ferrari LaFerrari and the GTA Spano are considered two of the most beautiful icons in the automotive world. In fact, these two supercars are being featured in HBO's "Ballers," which Dwayne Johnson is both starring and producing.
While "The Rock" was ecstatic about featuring these two supercars, he is somewhat frustrated that he cannot fit in any of them. He remarked that producing and starring in the Ballers provided him a chance to admire, touch and play with the LaFerrari, which he described as one of the most beautifully engineered and sought-after exotic cars in the world.
As Johnson stands at 6'5" and weighs 260 lbs, it’s no wonder that he can’t get in these vehicles. Likewise, the LaFerrari features custom seat pads that are designed to fit a certain customer in mind. He remarked that while his character doesn't fit in the Spano, he will take full credit for featuring this supercar properly as the show's Executive Producer.Read the entire article LaFerrari, GTA Spano featured in HBO's Ballers but Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson can't fit in them
