This Invite Box Suggests Ferrari Showed New LaFerrari Spider At Private Event

|

An open-top version of the Ferrari LaFerrari isn't that big of surprise considering that numerous reports have indicated such a model over the last couple of years.

Now, it has surfaced that a Spider version of the hybrid hypercar was reportedly shown to prospective buyers during a private event over the weekend.

Only time will tell whether this will be what Marchionne was referring to as "something special", for Ferrari's 70th birthday next year, or if we're looking at a different exotic to mark the company's celebrations.

Rumor has it that while the coupe was limited to 499 units, the Spider will be offered in roughly 150-200 examples, but there is no word yet on what roof configuration Ferrari will use. Its hybrid powertrain should produce the same as in the regular LaFerrari, meaning 963 PS (950 HP) and 900 Nm (664lb-ft) of torque, enough for 0-100 km/h (62 mph) made in less than 3 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
