Ride Onboard A LaFerrari Aperta Going Very Fast Up A Thrilling Hill Climb

If you’re a car enthusiast who uses Instagram frequently, you’ve probably heard of Powerslide Lover, a noted car collector and driving fanatic.

As the name of his Instagram account suggests, he loves getting his cars sideways, no matter how much they are worth. Most recently, he embarked on a high-speed hill climb in his LaFerrari Aperta and was not afraid to push the hypercar to its limits.

With used (or ‘used’…) units of the LaFerrari Aperta valued at well over $5 million, any of the lucky 210 owners could be excused for keeping theirs in garages. That’s not how Powerslide Lover works, and thanks to this POV video, you can ride along with him.

The hill climb features an intoxicating mix of flowing high-speed corners and tight hairpins that provided the perfect opportunity to get the car’s tail out and enjoy the 950 hp it has to offer. Having the confidence to throw a car as valuable as the LaFerrari Aperta into corners and to get on the power so aggressively shows a kind of confidence behind the wheel that we could only dream of possessing. Give us a hot hatch and we’ll happily chuck it around a road like this – but a LaFerrari? No way, the fear of being bankrupt for life (or been killed, for that matter) would be too strong.

Unfortunately, wind noise picked up by the camera muffles the howling soundtrack of the naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 powering the droptop hypercar. Nevertheless, you’ll probably still walk away from watching this clip wondering how on earth you can also get behind the wheel of one of Maranello’s supercars – preferably an open top one.

    I dont know if he had the “nannies” on. But that was kinda nuts. I’d have to peel my hands off that wheel if I tried that.

    Those were some interesting lines on the hairpins…
