La Ferrari Aperta

• LaFerrari, project name F150[4] is a limited production mid-engine mild hybrid sports car built by Italian automotive manufacturer Ferrari.[5] LaFerrari means "The Ferrari" in Italian and some other Romance languages, in the sense that it is the "definitive" Ferrari.

• LaFerrari is the first full hybrid produced by the Italian automotive marque, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari road car whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent.

Design

• The design of the V12 flagship received no input from Pininfarina, making it the first Ferrari since the Bertone-styled 1973 Dino 308 GT4 not to have Pininfarina bodywork or another styling. This decision is a rare exception to the collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina that began in 1951. However, Ferrari has stated that there are no plans to end business relations with Pininfarina.

• The steering wheel has integrated controls and paddle-shifters directly fixed to the steering column, a solution that allows better use in all conditions. The "bridge" which exists between the two seats, designed like a suspended wing, is home to other instruments linked to the dual-clutch gearbox. The instrumentation consists of a 12.3-inch (310 mm) TFT display with the option to choose between two layouts and can host data from the telemetry system.

Performance

• Ferrari states that the car has a top speed of 352 km/h (218 mph). In terms of acceleration, it can go 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.6 seconds, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in under 6.9 seconds, and 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 15 seconds were announced by Ferrari. However, the 0-300 figure was later debunked by multiple sources.[32] Its verified 0-300 time is 21.99 seconds. Ferrari also claims that the car has lapped its Fiorano Test Circuit in 1:19.70.

Production

• On 3 December 2016, a LaFerrari was auctioned off for US$7 million (GB£5,743,500.00) making this car "the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction" according to the automotive press. In 2017, the last unit of LaFerrari Aperta was auctioned for charity for US$10 million.

• Given the charitable nature of both of these auctions, car valuation experts do not consider the US$7 million Coupe sale price nor the US$10 million Aperta sale price as an accurate reflection of the value of the cars, which are closer to US$4 million (coupe) and US$7 million (Aperta).
