Car and Driver: Ferrari LaFerrari Spider: Now You See It


Recommended Posts



Ferrari has released, via Twitter, the first photo of the open-top version of the LaFerrari. This is the first we’ve seen of the sun-seeking supercar, although potential customers already have been shown the car—and, yep, it’s sold out.




CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed the car’s existence in an interview this spring. Marchionne referred to it as “the Spider,” but in a statement today, the company said the car’s name—along with its technical details—would be revealed at this fall’s Paris auto show, where the car will make its official debut. That’s also when we’ll learn how many will be built.


Ferrari did confirm that the roadster version, which it characterized as a “limited-edition special series,” has the same powertrain as the hardtop. That means a 6.3-liter V-12 supplemented by an electric motor, with a total output of 949 horsepower.


We also know that the car comes with both a soft top and a removable carbon fiber hard top. There’s no word, however, on pricing. One wonders if the customers invited to the special preview were told—or maybe it was just: “Do you want one or not? We haven’t settled on a price; when the car is ready, we’ll bill you.” Somehow, we doubt that anyone would have objected.
