LaFerrari convertible which was unveiled recently will make its first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October. The top-less hypercar is reported to go by the name LaFerrari Aperta.
The Aperta suffix is traditionally reserved for limited edition open-top sprancing horses like the 458 Speciale Aperta and SA Aperta (599 convertible).
While LaFerrari Aperta name is expected to be made official only at the Paris Motor Show, the official images of the hypercar on the company’s website already carry file names that go like “laferrari-aperta-news-580×362”. As expected, the convertible hypercar carries forward the hardtop version’s basic design language.
A re-inforced rear fascia and a roll over hoop are the key differences. Though the Aperta is a convertible, it prefers removable hard top (carbon fibre) or soft top elements rather than a traditional foldable roof. This way, the boffins at Maranello avoided repackaging the engine bay and adding a heavy convertible mechanism.
LaFerrari Aperta derives the 6.3-litre V12 naturally aspirated engine and an F1 style HY-KERS electric motor. The total output stands at 963 PS and 900 Nm of torque. The motor can accelerate from 0-200 kmph in 7 seconds.
Ferrari has not revealed the pricing but has confirmed that all units are already sold out.
