The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Is Apparently Now Worth $5 Million

Auctions / 8 Comments

Just 210 examples left the factory, one of which is now up for sale with just 161 miles on the clock.

When it comes to producing sought-after cars, few automakers can match the Prancing Horse's prowess. Yes, there have been a few questionable models over the years but, for the most part, Ferrari's sports cars generally command big money when they come up for sale. The irresistible LaFerrari Aperta pictured below is no exception: now nearing the end of its auction slot on Bring A Trailer, the highest bid for this Flavio Manzoni-styled beauty currently sits at $4,850,000.

We wouldn't be surprised if this example sells for more than $5 million. It's certainly one of the best examples out there, with a mere 161 miles on the odometer. The 2017 model is one of 210 units produced and was sold new to a Florida-based dealership. Like the equally striking SF90, the LaFerrari calls on a hybridized powertrain to propel it down the road. With 950 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, the V12-powered supercar can hit 60 mph in less than three seconds.

The Italian thoroughbred has lived a pampered life and has recently undergone a service by Ferrari of Atlanta. Would-be collectors will be pleased to know the LaFerrari will ship with a bevy of important documents and accessories, including the factory literature, original sticker ($2,279,800), and a hardtop storage bag, all of which will add to the vehicle's provenance. But let's, for a moment, glance over the technical details to focus on what is, arguably, the Aperta's greatest asset - its styling.

Eschewing the oft-criticized looks of the Enzo, the graceful supercar is an absolute masterpiece. Resplendent in Ferrari's signature Rosso Corsa, the topless wonder is as visually appealing as the day it left the factory. The optional $71,000 carbon-fiber hardtop and similarly-trimmed $41,000 roof trim panel and windshield frame add to the drama. The sleek bodywork stretches over a set of five-spoke forged wheels (19s up front, 20s in the rear) wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. Quad-exit exhausts finish the package off nicely.

The cabin is a symphony of carbon fiber, black leather, and Alcantara, uplifted only by red interior accents. Despite the Aperta's hard edge, the cockpit remains civilized and boasts nice-to-haves such as Bluetooth, a USB port, air-conditioning, parking sensors, and a backup camera. We're guessing these features won't be of much use to the owner; with the incredibly low mileage, this LaFerrari will most likely live out its days as a garage queen.

Interestingly, the current bid on this rarity from Maranello far exceeds the asking price for the first-ever McLaren P1. Recently offered for sale in the UK, Woking's riposte was up for grabs at the equivalent of $1.8 million. Eye-watering, but a bargain compared to this Aperta. Then again, we've seen the lengths people would go to own the sought-after Ferrari; renowned collector David Lee previously detailed his struggle to get into the brand's good books and secure himself an example.
