On Thursday Ferrari showcased 2 new cars. One was a less expensive version of the practical GTC4Lusso model, which is a four-seater. The other was a convertible version of the LaFerrari hybrid extreme supercar.
The convertible supercar, called the LaFerrari Aperta, costs $2.2 million. But it was still sold out even before Ferrari race announced, back in July, that it would debut in Paris this month.
The Aperta is available with a standard cloth top plus an optional removable carbon fiber hard top. It has the same V12 hybrid drive system as the hardtop coupe version. With an output of 750 horsepower and with additional power from electric motors, the system produces 950 horsepower. It has 217 mile per hour speed.
Only 209 of these cars are being manufactured, including 9 which are kept by Ferrari. Company also disclosed the GTC4Lusso T, a car meant for practical daily use. It’s a V8-powered version of a car that had previously been available only with Ferrari’s famed V12 engine.
It will add more fun and exciting everyday driving experience even at relatively low speeds, said Nicola Boari, Ferrari’s director of product marketing.
