This Ferrari LaFerrari sold for so much because it is a one-of-one example, finished in a special order Vinaccia paint with a Pelle Chiodi Di Garofano interior. The LaFerrari helped pave the way for the high tech hypercars we’re all so excited to see over the coming years, including the Aston Martin Valkyrie which should start being delivered to lucky customers in the next few weeks.
Similar to the Valkyrie, the LaFerrari shows clear evidence of direct inspiration taken from Ferrari’s racing programs. The aerodynamic lines of the car simply wouldn’t exist without Ferrari spending so many years developing their cars on the track.
After being delivered new to well-known Ferrari dealer Niki Hasler this LaFerrari – one of just 499 built – spent its life with only two owners, both of whom took great care of the car and maintained all service records. In addition to its unique color combination, this LaFerrari also featured its original manuals and toolkit, as well as custom-fitted luggage for whoever may be brave enough to take this million dollar car on a weekend getaway.
Faster than the Porsche 918 and the Bugatti Veyron when covering the quarter-mile in just 9.7 seconds with a top speed of more than 149 mph. This is much closer to a flat-out race car than one of Ferrari’s higher production models.
Considering the MSRP somewhere around $1.3 Million, covering 918 miles and selling at RM Sotheby’s for $2.9 Million is a pretty solid return on investment – it’s as if someone was paid about $1,700 for each mile they drove this phenomenal hypercar. A strong price for the Ferrari LaFerrari in 2021, and just about the expected value based on previous sales.
