Buy A 2017 LaFerrari Engine For ‘Just’ $385,000

Thought your Dodge Viper-powered Mazda Miata was cool? Well this 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari engine could serve as the heart of the greatest engine swap ever.

Recently listed on eBay, this LaFerrari 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine has reportedly covered a mere 20 miles and comes with a sky-high price tag of $385,000. For that money, something significantly more powerful could be created but it would almost certainly fall short of this powertrain in the sound department.

Very few details about the engine have been provided in the listing so it’s difficult to know why there is a LaFerrari engine out there that’s not currently powering an Italian hybrid hypercar. One possible explanation is that the engine came out of a LaFerrari that crashed and was declared a write-off by the insurance company.

Whatever the explanation may be, there are certain to be some wealthy car collectors tempted by the exotic powertrain, whether that’s to use it, carefully store it in case their LaFerrari ever needs an engine replacement, or to simply make an expensive coffee table out of it.

    Car model is too new. No use for this engine at this price today. Plus, what build cost will justify buying this engine at this price. Like having a solution to problem that doesn’t exist. Good luck.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    So you’re telling me there’s a chance?


    Naaaaah……I could get a decent used Ferrari for that price.

    • TheYes

      Used? You could get a new one

      • LWOAP

        Yeah, I could but I like to stretch every dollar.

  • SamuraiJack

    Be ironic. Put it in the back of a Fiero

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Would it even fit?

  • nastinupe

    That engine makes 789 hp at 9000 RPM. That’s insane for a V12. I’d put it in a Singer Porsche and use the rear seat space to make it mid engined. Now THAT’s a kick ass project. If I was rich I’d do it.

  • SteersUright

    Put it in a BRZ.

  • I think it’s replacement engine or some sort, if there is a LaFerrari crash you guys surely put a big headline for it already.

    That said transplanting this to any car would be a massive effort. The electronic of modern engine is a b1tch

  • karmat

    I’d mount it longitudinally in a 308.

  • Robert

    Given Ferrari’s cost of ownership and the Italian automakers atrocious reliability, I’d feel safer having a V12 built by Hyundai


    Someone should fit it inside a Pagani Huayra
