The 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Convertible is Here — And Already Sold Out
Ever since the original Ferrari LaFerrari went into limited production in 2013, rumors have swirled that Ferrari would release a convertible version to complement its hypercar coupe. Now it’s official—this is it. The Italian marque has released the first official photos of its open-top LaFerrari, set to make its grand debut at the Paris International Motor Show in October of this year. Ferrari is careful not to call it a “LaFerrari Spyder”, as the firm’s conventional naming system would suggest it be called; instead, Ferrari says that neither the name or the hypercar’s production numbers will be revealed until its October unveiling.

Fancy buying one? Unfortunately, every last one of them has been sold according to Ferrari. The Ferrari LaFerrari convertible’s design was previewed to prospective clients earlier this year, after which the limited-production car’s ordering book was closed.
Pricing has not been announced either, but seeing as the original Ferrari LaFerrari (of which 499 units were built) cost an eye-watering $1.4 million… it’s likely the hypercar’s drop-top sibling has demanded a larger ask.
The car's performance specifications are however known; Ferrari says its drop-top LaFerrari will boast the same 6.3-liter V12 engine and electric motor system as the original car, ushering up a towering 950 horsepower. The marque confirms the hypercar’s chassis has been reengineered to offer the same level of structural rigidity as its coupe sibling, as well as new aerodynamic elements. Buyers will receive two sets of removable tops with their Ferrari LaFerrari convertibles—a carbon fiber hardtop as well as a fabric soft top.
