These are the first photographs of the open-top version of the LaFerrari, the new limited-edition hypercar aimed at drivers who refuse to compromise on the joy of al fresco driving. The actual name and technical characteristics of the new car will be announced at the Paris International Motor Show, as will the number of examples Ferrari will build. However, all available examples have already been sold after a special preview to clients and the order book is closed.
The limited-edition Ferrari will be available with a removable carbon-fiber hard top and a removable soft top. It has the same running gear and performance figures as the original LaFerrari, sporting a 788hp 6.3 liter V12 coupled with a 161hp electric motor, unleashing 949hp in total. Which means 0-62mph in 2.9s, 0-124mph in under seven, 0-186mph in 15s and a top speed of 218mph.
Significant and extensive modifications have been made by Ferrari to the chassis with the aim of retaining the same rigidity and beam stiffness as the coupé version. The car’s aerodynamics have also been further honed to guarantee the same drag coefficient when driving in the open configuration.
