Lewis Hamilton Nabbed Driving His Priceless LaFerrari Aperta In LA

As one of the highest earners in Formula One history, it’s no surprise that Lewis Hamilton owns an impressive collection of cars. The latest addition to his garage? A white LaFerrari Aperta.

It’s no secret that the Mercedes Formula One star owns a fleet of vehicles from his on-track rivals, including a 599 GTO and an all-new LaFerrari Coupe. His recently-delivered Aperta is the most valuable of them all and was recently filmed out and about in Hollywood.

Unlike the Coupe, the British driver ordered the Aperta in a gloss white paint scheme with black and carbon fiber accents as well as red brake calipers.

Production of the LaFerrari Aperta is restricted to just 210 units, including the one-off auctioned off for charity last year for $10 million. Given that demand for the LaFerrari Coupe has seen used examples trading hands for over $5 million, it’s fair to assume that Hamilton could parts ways with his Aperta for upwards of $7 million – that’s it, if he decides to sell it.

While it’s obvious that Hamilton loves his Ferraris, it’s unclear if his Mercedes team is so keen on him spending millions to support a rival manufacturer. In Hamilton’s defense, he does own numerous high-performance Mercedes-Benz models as well, including an SLS AMG and the AMG-powered Pagani Zonda 760LH. There’s a very good chance he’s also put his name down for the groundbreaking Mercedes-AMG Project One that’ll use his F1 ride’s powertrain.

      I’m not a fan. The black ferrari badge looks cheap.

      • fabri99

        Yes, that wasn’t a great choice, especially if the badge is that big.
