And it costs $7.3 million as a result.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast may be the fastest naturally aspirated Ferrari ever, but the LaFerrari Aperta is the fastest convertible to ever wear a Ferrari badge. If the one-off F12 TRS is anything to go by, if Ferrari does eventually chop the roof off the 812 Superfast it will be built in extremely limited numbers. Only 209 examples of the LaFerrari Aperta were produced, but Ferrari is building one last model which was recently auctioned for charity with a winning bid of $9.98 million.
Every car has long been sold out, but you do occasionally see them looking for new owners at dealerships. Listed for sale at a Dubai dealership via GTR Motors is a pristine LaFerrari Aperta finished in Rosso Corsa Red with zero miles on the odometer, despite being listed as used. There’s a simple explanation here: it’s sadly inevitable that some people will have bought the rare convertible Ferrari as an investment instead of enjoying its sublime 949-horsepower V12, which probably explains why this one has never been driven since a lower mileage increases its value. Since this LaFerrari Aperta is virtually factory-fresh, the dealer is asking for $7.3 million.
Originally, it’s thought that the LaFerrari Aperta would have set you back $3.9 million. Deliveries for the convertible supercar started late last year, so it’s doubled its value in less than a year. Let’s hope the next owner uses the LaFerrari Aperta as it was intended and not sell it to a dealer in the hope of making a tidy profit, as it will no doubt continue to appreciate in years to come.
