Final LaFerrari To Be Auctioned Off For Charity

Written By:

When Ferrari chopped the top of the LaFerrari to make the Aperta, it announced that it would be making only 209 of the drop-top hybrid hypercars. Ferrari also announced that all 209 units of the LaFerrari Aperta already had garages ready for them as they were all sold out.

However, that no longer seems to be the case as Ferrari will auction off the 210th and final Aperta at  at RM Sotheby's Ferrari - Leggenda E Passione sale on September 9. The newest Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta which hasn't been built yet, will sport a unique paint job when it goes under the hammer as part of Ferrari's 70th Anniversary celebrations.

All proceeds from the auction of the 210th Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, which is expected to raise between €3 - 4 million (Rs 22.86 - 30.48 crore), will be donated to an unnamed charity.

The LaFerrari Aperta is powered by a 6.3-litre V12 engine and an electric motor connected to an F1 derived KERS system to produce 950bhp and 900Nm of torque. The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta sprints from 0 – 100kph in under 3 seconds and has a top speed in excess of 349kph.

Also set to go under the hammer at the Leggenda E Passione sale, which will take place at Ferrari's factory in Maranello, Italy, are the world's only road-going 365 GTB/4 with an aluminium body, the wind tunnel model for the 812 Superfast, 488 Spider "Green Jewel," and the Ferrari 250 Europa Coupe by Vignale.

DriveSpark Thinks!

This isn't the first time that Ferrai has pulled off the trick of building another unit of a sold-out limited number car. The last time it happened, Ferrari sold the 500th and final LaFerrari coupe for €7 million (Rs 53.35 crore). Considering second hand LaFerrari Apertas are commanding almost $6 million  (Rs 38.33 crores), we expect the drop-top Ferrari to command surpass its hardtop siblings auction price tag.
