Ferrari Unveils Rosso Corsa LaFerrari Aperta In Melbourne

A stunning Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, finished in Rosso Corsa, has been unveiled at Melbourne’s Motorclassica.

Although deliveries of the drop-top hybrid hypercar commenced in late-2016, this is the first example to hit Australian soil. It was flown in from Europe and is one of the nine LaFerrari Aperta’s which the Italian marque is using for promotional purposes around the world.

Just 201 examples of the Aperta are bound for the hands of customers, one extra than initially planned. Last month, the final example was auctioned off for charity for a staggering 8.3 million euros ($9.98 million).

Like the ‘regular’ LaFerrari hardtop that came before it, the Aperta features a 6.3-liter V12 engine delivering 789 hp. That blistering engine is then mated to an electric motor that bumps power to 950 hp, enough to launch the hypercar to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3 seconds and through to a top speed exceeding 350 km/h (217 mph).

There is at least one LaFerrari Aperta that has been sold to an Australian customer but without a special permit, it can’t be driven on local roads.

    I need my sun glasses to be able to see the pictures.
    This is fantastic. Very striking.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    These manufacturers know how the game is played…they have these buyers right where they want them. Unveil a tiny bit different version of the same car over and over and charge astronomical prices they KNOW these ultra wealthy one-uppers will pay. It’s actually kinda fun to watch them scramble to have the next hot name/model. You just have to point, shake your head and laugh. :p)

    Umm OK ….

  • Vassilis

    The LaFerrari has been around for so many years now and you guys still don’t know it isn’t called Ferrari LaFerrari but plain LaFerrari?

    • Ferrari itself refers to it as the Ferrari LaFerrari.

      • Vassilis

        If you read the car’s info here they call it plainly LaFerrari:

        Also, use some common sense like pretty much every other car journalist does. The car’s name means it’s THE Ferrari. So calling it Ferrari LaFerrari is a repeat. It’s simply LaFerrari.

        • If a high-ranking Ferrari executive tells you it’s simply LaFerrari, like one told me it is Ferrari LaFerrari, get back to me.

          Type ‘LaFerrari Review’ into Google, you’ll see most journos call it Ferrari LaFerrari.

          • Vassilis

            Read a few top magazines like Top Gear, EVO etc and see how they refer to it. Also, seriously use that common sense I said previously.

            People that refer to it as the Ferrari LaFerrari (that executive included) don’t understand the car’s name.

          • Nocca Italy

            I am Italian and i agree with Vassilis.
            It is just LaFerrari = “THE” Ferrari!
            In may opinon it is a sh… name (and the car is amazing btw) and that name has been chosed by former CEO : our LUCA CORDERO DI MONTEZEMOLO……his last decision and than it has been fired!
