Who would want to buy a LaFerrari for $5 million? Someone in Florida, specifically at the Naples Motorsport dealership, seems to thinks so. Granting, it is a limited edition model and it is the only one of its kind being offered in the entire North American region.
Nevertheless, it seems insane to price it more than 3.5 times its original price of $1.4 million but that didn't seem to stop a hefty buyer as the Italian supercar was sold! Clearly, it is in perfect condition and it has only been driven 202 miles. If you have money just sitting around and you want to give this guy selling it a break, then here’s your chance you can spend more and find a more expensive one.
But before you do that, let us give you more details about what you’re getting exactly. Ferrari unveiled the LaFerrari at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show. The company has also mentioned that it will only produce 499 units. While the LaFerrari itself is a limited edition, fans who missed the opportunity have a reason not to be disappointed.
This is because the technology that Ferrari comes up with in the LaFerrari is sure to trickle down to future models later on. Fans can definitely look forward to seeing the hybrid system in future Ferrari production models.
The HY-KERS is the result of Ferrari’s move to capitalize on its expertise in F1 KERS, and is a system that stays true to Ferrari’s commitment to exceptional performance and delivering excitement to drivers.
The best thing about the HY-KERS system is that it is capable of achieving very low emissions without using an electric-powered engine. The LaFerrari’s emission levels are at 330 g/km. Ferrari, however, tested a full-electric version of the limited model. The registered emission levels are even lower at just 220 g/km.
It’s obvious Ferrari has designed the HY-KERS with a mind for development of an electric car in the future.The LaFerrari is also the first model to combine a dynamic control system with the new hybrid technology and active aerodynamics.
The new car delivers excellent performance and efficient aerodynamics without sacrificing handling. These three are all balanced by Ferrari’s proprietary system philosophy. The car’s interior is impressive as well --- the design includes an HMI that takes cues from the F-1 racer cars.
