FERRARI LAFERRARI APERTA: ‘AN ULTIMATE TRACK-FOCUSED HYPERCAR’

Popular car spotter RTM Supercars South Africa shared some of the car’s photos as they credited The Drive Chronicle for bringing back one of the fastest cars in the world to South Africa.

Taking to Instagram, RTM Supercars South Africa posted, “LAFERRARI APERTA BACK IN SA. The Pagani Imola has left SA, but the guys from @thedrivechronicle replaced it in SA with this immaculate LaFerrari Aperta.”

Photos of the car have gained thousands of comments and reactions since they dropped on the internet. Against the post, Mzansi has been trying to connect the dots about the car’s owner but to no avail.

Over the years, the open-top guise of the LaFerrari has become one of the most sought-after hypercars in the world, but how much is it? The Ferrari LaFerrari has a base price of R108 million ($5.8 million) in several dealerships dotted across the globe.

However, hypercar prices have ballooned over the years due to exclusivity. According to reports, a Ferrari LaFerrari with 174 miles recently sold for R130 million ($7 million). However, another Ferrari LaFerrari fetched R186 million ($10 million) in an auction.

WHY IS IT SPECIAL AND RARE?

Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is an open-top version of the LaFerrari, unveiled in 2016. Only 210 units made it on the market. However, upon unveiling, 200 units were made available on the market. Nine units were reserved for Ferrari’s 70th anniversary.

Moreover, Ferrari claims that the LaFerrari can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and reach 200 km/h in 6.9 seconds.

However, the LaFerrari does not only have the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta line under its flagship model. Some of the models under the LaFerrari flagship include:

  • FXX-K (2015–2017)
