2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Spider

Jump to Images

Ferrari has announced the convertible version of their LaFerrari hypercar. Information is limited, but we know that it will have the same engine as the hardtop LaFerrari, a V12 hybrid producing 949 hp, and identical performance figures, with a top speed of 217 mph. One remarkable achievement is that the car will have the same drag coefficient as the hardtop even with the top removed.

The actual name of the car and the number to be produced will be announced at the Paris show. That last point may be academic, as the car sold out within hours of announcement.

The new limited edition special series to be unveiled at the Paris Show

Maranello, 5 July 2016 – These are the first photographs of the convertible version of the LaFerrari, the new limited edition special series aimed at clients and collectors that refuse to compromise on the joy of drop-top driving even when at the wheel of a supercar.

The name and technical characteristics of the new car will be announced at the Paris International Motor Show as will the number Ferrari proposes to build. However, all available examples have already been sold after a special preview to clients and the order book is closed.

The new limited edition special series will be available with a carbon-fibre hard top and a soft top. It has the same running gear and performance figures as the original LaFerrari, sporting a 800 cv V12 ICE (with a specific power output of 128 cv/l) coupled with a 120 kW electric motor (163 cv), unleashing 963 cv in total.

Significant and extensive modifications have been made to the chassis with the aim of retaining the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness as the coupé version. The car’s aerodynamics have also been further honed to guarantee the same drag coefficient even without the roof.
