Camo’d Ferrari LaFerrari Goes On A Very Dirty Drifting Adventure

The LaFerrari may be an extremely-desirable collectors car worth roughly $5 million, but some owners are actually game enough to give the Italian hypercar a hard time. Racing driver Florian Merckx is one of them.

Merckx is the owner of one of the most eye-catching LaFerraris on earth. Immediately distinguishing his car from all others is a black and white camouflage wrap which is split down the middle, meaning one side is almost entirely black while the other is bathed in white and grey, giving the hypercar two different personalities depending on the angle it’s viewed at.

Other changes made to the Italian hypercar include white decals on the wheels and yellow tinting across the headlights.

As the wrap protects the expensive paint underneath from dirt and stone-chips, Merckx recently took out his LaFerrari to an abandoned factory and set about getting very sideways and covering the car in dust and dirt. This is probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing the LaFerrari rallying.

It may be hard to believe, but it’s been almost exactly five and a half years since the LaFerrari was unveiled at 2013’s Geneva Motor Show. Launched as a successor to the Ferrari Enzo and a hybrid rival to the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, the LaFerrari showed to the world that the Italian marque can still create some of the world’s finest performance cars, despite the rise of new rivals.

After production of the LaFerrari coupe wrapped up, Ferrari announced a droptop version, dubbed the LaFerrari Aperta. Limited to just 210 examples, this model sold out instantly and is now worth upwards of $10 million.
