Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta debuts at the 2016 Paris Motor Show (LIVE Photos)

 

The open top hypercar continues to have a combined output of 963 PS and 900 Nm of torque.

LaFerrari convertible which was unveiled recently, has made its first public appearance at the ongoing Paris Motor Show. The top-less hypercar goes by the name LaFerrari Aperta.

The Aperta suffix is traditionally reserved for limited edition open-top prancing horses like the 458 Speciale Aperta and SA Aperta (599 convertible).

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.
