Why Does This LaFerrari Engine Cost More Than TWO 812 Superfasts?

For Sale / 12 Comments

They can't be serious, right?

If you're in the market for a used Ferrari LaFerrari, then be prepared to pay up. Big time. Nothing less than $3 million will get you behind the wheel of this V12-powered hybrid hypercar. That high price tag also carries over to any LaFerrari component, such as its engine. This naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 alone generates a maximum output of 789 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. It's supplanted by an electric motor with an additional 161 hp for a grand total of 950 hp. And like any Ferrari engine, this V12 is expensive, even when used. Take this one, for example.

This 2017 LaFerrari engine is currently up for sale on eBay with a 'Buy it Now' price of $800,000. Obviously no car is included, but this V12 only has 20 miles on it. What happened to the rest of the LaFerrari? Unknown.

There's a likelihood the donor car was involved in an accident and its engine was salvageable, unlike the rest of the car. Given that there's some, though very little, mileage, the engine had to have been installed at some point. As it turns out, however, this isn't the first time this specific LaFerrari engine has been posted for sale.

In fact, we reported about its sale back in late 2017 when it cost "only" $285,000. It hasn't even been two years and the price has almost tripled. Like the hypercar it was designed for, its value has soared. Welcome to the world of Ferrari.

What's also interesting about this updated eBay post is that there's no mention of a shipping fee. Previously, this was an additional $2,000. Even without that, the price of this engine alone could easily buy you two brand new 812 Superfasts, depending on options (MSRP: $363,730). Just think of all of the Ferraris and/or other supercars you could buy with this kind of money. Just goes to show anything LaFerrari related, even its parts, will never be cheap.
