The special edition LaFerrari Aperta from the house of Ferrari was spotted at the Paris auto expo.
The limited edition model will be commemorating the 70th anniversary of the brand and will deliver an impressive performance on the road.
LaFerrari Aperta happens to be a convertible and obviously the brand is keen to make it stand out of the crowd to showcase that it is an anniversary edition. The makers have confirmed that only 209 units of the car will be built and sold to customers. According to the company’s executives, it will be the fastest ever car they have created in history. The limited edition model can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 3 seconds. The top speed of the vehicle is pegged at 220 miles per hour.
Under the hood, the Ferrari model is powered by a 6.3-liter V-12 engine which delivers up to 789 horsepower. That’s not the only powertrain found in the car. It also encloses an electric motor which produces around 161 horsepower. The two engines in unison offer about 950 horsepower making the convertible a speedy beast on the road.
The entire power generated by the engine is delivered to the rear wheels which is mated to a seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission system. Ferrari is highly confident about their convertible that the company commented that they have nothing to worry about competitor models from Mercedes AMG and Aston Martin.
Enrico Galliera, chief marketing and commercial officer of Ferrari commented that they are happy with what they have done and the competition are nearly reiterating what the brand did in the past. A major portion of the LaFerrari Aperta is made using carbon fiber materials and a lot of aerodynamic additions are made to the car.
The new Aperta has stylish butterfly wing doors same as the LaFerrari coupe. Some minor modifications are made to the body so that the overall balance is maintained. The angle of the radiator has been modified so that hot air is exerted through the lower body of the car and doesn’t affect the passengers.
Ferrari confirmed that out of the 209 Aperta models they have built, 200 of them are already sold. The company has no plans to sell the rest nine because they have planned to keep them for promotional purposes and show it off as the 70th anniversary special edition model in the upcoming auto shows.
