Ferrari are well known for their limited edition, limited production hypercars. In the 1980’s Ferrari gave us the legendary F40, in the 90’s we were given the F50, in 2002 we were given the Enzo (F60) & in 2013 we were given the mild hybrid LaFerrari (F70).
The beautiful LaFerrari was Ferrari’s answer to the hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder & McLaren P1 hypercars & it didn’t disappoint. With a starting price of $1 million each and with only 499 LaFerrari Coupé’s built between June 2013 & January 2016 this hypercar is not very common. If you weren’t picked by Ferrari to buy & own a new LaFerrari then the chances of you actually getting a new LaFerrari are just about zero. If you are desperate enough to own a LaFerrari & you have a few million Dollars burning a hole in your pocket, luckily there is the pre-owned market where you may just be able to find a low mileage example, like these two.
Mecum Auctions will be selling these 2 beautiful LaFerrari Coupé’s at it’s Monterrey sale on August 23 – 25. The first LaFerrari to cross the auction block is a Rosso Corsa (red) example, what makes this example so special is that it has a full Rosso Corsa exterior including the roof (most LaFerrari’s featured a black roof). Inside you will find a full red interior but the best part is that it only has 307 miles on it’s odometer which means this LaFerrari is practically new. Mecum Auctions estimate that this example will sell for between $3 million – $3.3 million.
The second example to cross the auction block is a Giallo Modena (yellow) LaFerrari Coupe. This example has the usual black LaFerrari roof and inside you will find a solid black interior with yellow piping. This example has only covered a mere 419 miles in it’s lifetime which means this LaFerrari is also practically new. Mecum Auctions estimate that this rarer Giallo Modena example will sell for between $3.25 million – $3.5 million.
Mechanically both of these LaFerrari’s are identical. They are both powered by a 6.3 liter naturally aspirated V12 mated to an electric motor and a seven speed dual clutch transmission which sends a combined 950 hp (708 kW) to the rear wheels. The LaFerrari is no slow coach either, it can sprint from 0-62 mph in just 2.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).
The LaFerrari lapped Ferrari’s legendary Fiorano test track in 1:19,7 making it the fastest Ferrari road car ever made. The LaFerrari is a serious piece of kit and if you have the money to buy one, do it and don’t look back. This mild hybrid Ferrari hypercar was one of 3 hybrid hypercars that has changed how modern hypercars are built and powered. It has defintely earned it’s place in the hypercar and Ferrari Hall of Fame.
