This is the second time this particular Aperta has been up for sale.
To celebrate the automaker's 70th anniversary in 2016, Ferrari built just 210 examples of the LaFerrari Aperta, a topless version of Ferrari's flagship hypercar. While the LaFerrari was out of most people's price range costing around $1.5 million, the Aperta version would have reportedly set you back over $2 million when it first went on sale. Just to add to the car's exclusivity, eligible buyers were also specifically hand-picked by Ferrari. In just three years, the LaFerrari Aperta has nearly tripled its value.
Last month, an example with just 174 miles on the odometer and a $62,807 optional black carbon-fiber hardtop went under the hammer at the 2019 Mecum Kissimmee auction, but it failed to sell thanks to its steep reserve price of $7 million. Now, the same car is up for sale again by Mecum as part of its "The Bid Goes On" program with the same $7-million price tag.
Like the standard LaFerrari, power comes from a 6.3- liter V12 engine and an electric motor that produces a combined 950 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph takes less than three seconds, before the LaFerrari Aperta reaches a top speed of 217 mph.
Sadly, this isn't the first time we've seen owners try and flip the LaFerrari Aperta for a profit, as several dealers have tried to sell the Italian supercar for $7 million over the years. However, people seem less willing to pay such an astronomical amount for the rare Italian supercar. Mecum offered another LaFerrari at its Kissimmee auction last month with 418 miles on the odometer that sold for $3.3 million, so it seems unlikely that anyone will be willing to pay $3.7 million more to have 244 less miles on the clock.
