Christened the LaFerrari ‘Aperta’, this hybrid goes topless, and it is Ferrari’s attempt to grab the title of the ultimate bedroom wall pinup.
Ferrari has finally unveiled images of the LaFerrari Aperta, the latest iteration of their flagship hybrid supercar. The immaculate new Aperta combines all the ingredients that made the standard car perfect, with the flair of a cabriolet. This Maranello Stallion is an absolute thing of beauty.
Almost identical to its hardtop sibling, the Aperta features the latest Ferrari design language incorporating the signature Ferrari headlamps and wide hips. The engine bay is covered with a transparent cover that reveals the monstrous V12. The car’s silhouette is graceful and artistic. This roofless avatar of the LaFerrari is mesmerizing from every angle. The car would be available with either a removable carbon hard top or a fabric soft top.
In terms of drivetrain, the Aperta retains the glorious 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V12 along with the electric motors that powered the coupe. This means that the LaFerrari Convertible will have 950 HP and 890 Nm of torque on tap. Thanks to all this oomph, a 0-100 kmph sprint is dealt within a meagre 2.9 seconds, and the top speed is a whopping 350 kmph. Those are incredible numbers for a roofless car. Not to mention the thrill of hearing that V12 scream in your own personal open air theatre.
Now, Ferrari claims that the Aperta is just as fast as the LaFerrari Coupe. To abide by their promise the Italians have had to make significant changes to the LaFerrari’s chassis to handle the new cabriolet setup. The aero setup has been honed to make sure that the car generates substantial drag even in the topless format.
Details on the new car are rather vague at the moment. The LaFerrari Aperta would be debuted worldwide at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Another important fact to note is that the Aperta is completely sold out. Quite unsurprising actually, seeing as the car is prettier than a Roman Goddess and has the pace to match its gorgeous exterior. Can cars get any better than this? We highly doubt it.
