The LaFerrari Aperta
Following the immense success of Ferrari's hybrid-electric hypercar - the LaFerrari - the open-top Laferrari Aperta was introduced in 2017 as an even more exclusive model of the revolutionary and über high-tech Ferrari model. With only 210 examples built, the Spider version offered the same staggering performance but with the addition of an open-air driving experience. Amazingly, Ferrari engineered a removable top for the LaFerrari hardtop, while keeping the same coefficient of drag and rigidity as the coupe. Offered exclusively to preferred Ferrari clients, every allocation of the Aperta was filled before the world was introduced to the car in 2017.
Powered by a normally aspirated 6.3-Litre V12, which could put out 800bhp, the internal combustion engine was no longer the sole source of energy/power. It was accompanied by the arrival of the Hybrid Kinetic Energy Recovery System, which appeared on F1 cars in 2009. As on those they were determined would provide not only the reductions in emissions and fuel consumption, but also provide the performance boost that was seen on the racetrack in their single seaters.
The hybrid KERS chosen was itself subjected to rigorous refinement to shave some 50kg off its expected 200kg added weight. The effect of the system they created is nothing short of staggering in terms of performance, long term suppliers Magneti Marelli providing two electric power units to separately power the wheels and ancillaries.
The electric motor's 120 kilowatts, which equate to roughly 163hp work in harmony with the V12's 800bhp, providing unheard of acceleration at lower speeds and protecting the upper rev bands for outright speed, a mind numbing 9,250 rpm redline point.
The resulting car was nothing short of spectacular, staying true its bloodline, with two-wheel drive configuration. Its power combination driving through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, provided lightning quick acceleration, with astounding performance specifications on paper.
Each time Ferrari has elected to produce the ultimate sports car of its day, they have produced something totally out of the box, fresh, innovative, striking and individual. As nothing had prepared the world for the looks of an F40 or Enzo, the statement made by LaFerrari had to match that. They chose to work in house, a rare step aside from their relationship with Pininfarina, Ferrari Centro Stile's Flavio Manzoni being responsible for the exquisite design which is both striking and modern, yet gives nods to the heritage of the marque.
