Whenever a company names one of its products “the product,” you know that’s probably going to be the absolute pinnacle of whatever that product is. That’s exactly the case with the vehicle known as the LaFerrari. Translated literally, it means “the Ferrari.” (Don’t think too long or hard when we say “the Ferrari LaFerrari” on this page…) The Ferrari LaFerrari is the epitome of what the Ferrari brand stands for, and it was the first hybrid vehicle to deliver 950 horsepower. With only a limited number of units ever built, it’s one of the rarest vehicles to pass through our inventory here in North Miami Beach FL, which is why we get so stoked when one does arrive in our showroom.
Two versions of the LaFerrari were built in its time. Only 500 units of the original LaFerrari were built, produced over a few years between June of 2013 to January of 2016. It was powered by the combination of a 6.3L V12 engine, an electric motor and a KERS system, all of which combined to generate an astounding 950 horsepower. Ferrari says that the vehicle is capable of hitting a top speed of 220 miles per hour, in addition to some incredible acceleration numbers. It can get from 0 to 62 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds, from 0-124 mph in less than 7 s and from 0-186 in 15 s flat. The original model was followed up by the LaFerrari Aperta, a roadster version of the vehicle with a removable roof. This model didn’t change performance at all, simply added the bonus of being able to remove its roof and feel the wind in your hair. An additional 210 units of this model were built. For the brand’s first stab at a mild hybrid vehicle, it was a resounding success, and we’re always pleased when we can provide one here in the area. They’re rare, as you can see by how many were built, but you can always check our inventory to see if one is available.
