ferrari’s ‘laferrari aperta’ is the limited-edition special series model launched to commemorate the italian-automaker’s 70th anniversary. designed for ferrari’s most passionate clients, the ‘laferrari aperta’ is the open-top version of the rare ‘laferrari’ hybrid supercar, with a powertrain identical to the coupé model — a 6.3 liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine with an electric motor powering the rear wheels, paired with a seven-speed gearbox. this combination creates a monstrous 950 bhp, promising sheer exhiliration with the roof down.



the ‘laferrari’s’ chassis has received a few tweaks to ensure that it has the same torsional rigidity as the coupé, allowing it to race from 0 – 62 mph (0 – 100 km/h) in under three seconds, and reach a top speed of 217 mph (349 km/h)all proceeds of the auction will be donated to save the children for an international program focusing on education. the event is by invitation only, and is part of a three day program of festivities in maranello.
