LaFerrari convertible to adopt Aperta suffix

LaFerrari Spyder
 

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

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).

The convertible can be specified either with removable carbon fibre or soft roof.

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.

The car gets a slightly revised rear fascia.

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.
