LaFerrari Prototype For Sale, But There’s A Catch

A 2013 Ferrari LaFerrari prototype is heading to auction in a couple of days and is expected to sell for between €1 million and €1.2 million ($1.19-$1.43 million). The catch? It can’t be driven on the road.

It is no secret that LaFerrari prices have skyrocketed since the hypercar’s debut in 2013 and some examples have changed hands for almost $5 million. So, what makes this car so cheap?

Well, according to RM Sotheby’s, it is a pre-production model that was first shown off to Ferrari devotees in early 2013 before premiering at the Geneva Motor Show that same year. Since then, it has been made available to every client traveling to Maranello to configure their new LaFerrari.

Ferrari says the prototype hasn’t been homologated for road use and is unable to be road registered. The automaker also recommends that it remains inactive and is only used for static display.

With that in mind, it’s difficult to imagine who would be willing to cough up so much money for a car that can’t be driven. However, given that it’s a Ferrari, you can be assured there’s a buyer out there.

    Ferrari owners don’t drive their cars anyways, so this should be perfect.

    “Can’t be driven on the road” doesn’t meant it can’t be driven on the track.
    Or at Mexico, if you know what I meant on that.

      “The automaker also recommends that it remains inactive and is only used for static display.”
      And you talking about taking it to the track!

    And the sad thing is that most buyers won’t even care they can’t drive their LaFerrari. They weren’t going to, anyway.
