Extreme Open-Top Driving: LaFerrari Aperta (Video)
Designed for Ferrari’s most passionate clients, the LaFerrari Aperta is the new limited-edition special series model, and just a few examples – all of them already accounted for - of this spider version of the acclaimed LaFerrari supercar will be built.

The intensive development work carried out by Ferrari’s technicians targeted the car’s chassis and aerodynamics and has produced a roadster that delivers the same performance, torsional rigidity, beam stiffness and drag coefficient characteristics as the coupé.
The Aperta retains the LaFerrari’s hybrid powertrain comprising an 800 cv 6,262 cc V12 (specific power output 128 cv/l, compression ratio 13.5:1) coupled with a 120 kW electric motor, for a total power output of 963 cv. The dynamic control systems integrated with the active aerodynamics remain unchanged.
The LaFerrari Aperta’s styling retains the essential characteristics of the coupé. It is a futuristic and absolutely extreme car that seamlessly marries form and function whilst still retaining clear links to classic Ferrari styling cues. The only significant difference is the door rotation system: when fully open, the Aperta’s doors are now at slightly different angle than in the coupé version.
