Recently appointed chief executive officer at Ferrari, Sergio Marchionne took his time to confirm the brand will indeed deliver an open top version of the LaFerrari flagship hypercar.
Since the confirmation the speculators have already started going berserk and we have a listing to prove it. According to a mobile.de posting, Investment Cars GmbH has somehow grabbed a Rosso red LaFerrari Spider and is willing to part ways for the astonishing price of €4,285,714 ($4,885,285) before adding in the 19 percent VAT which takes the toll up to €5,100,000 ($5,811,348). Aside from the fact that it’s pretty preposterous, you also have to wonder how much you can trust this posting since the car isn’t even already out in the open. To alleviate concerns, the company claims “years of experience” and says it gets a hold of such exquisite cars using “unique and direct contact with private collectors.” This could be true since we already know potential customers have been approached by Ferrari for the Spider pre-sale.
Anyways, the ad comes with a previously unknown piece of information, claiming the production run will be limited to just 70 units. Ferrari has been very mysterious about the Spider and the rumor mill claims it will have conventional doors and a two separate panel removable top. The powertrain is likely coming unchanged from the coupe version and will display its full output of 963 horsepower. But with the added weight needed by the reinforcements, we’re expecting the Spider to be a tad slower than its brethren, which tops out at more than 217 mph.
