There’s A Yellow LaFerrari Up For Grabs With Only 317 Miles 14

With 500 made and 120 delivered to the United States, finding a LaFerrari on the open market may not be all that difficult. Finding one in nearly new condition, however, is another matter entirely, but that’s just what we have here.

Set to headline Mecum‘s forthcoming auction in Kissimmee, Florida, next month is a yellow example of Maranello’s hybrid hypercar with just 317 miles on the clock.

Unlike most LaFerraris that left the factory in “resale red,” this 2015 example was ordered in Giallo Modena, complete with yellow brake calipers, a black and yellow leather interior, and loads of optional carbon-fiber trim.

Like any other of its breed, it packs a 6.3-liter V12 hybrid powertrain unleashing 949 horsepower for a 0-62 time quoted at 2.4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph – making it one of the fastest, most capable performance machines ever devised.

With such low mileage, this one’s anticipated to sell for a good $3.6 million (give or take the price of a 488 or Portofino) when the gavel drops during the nine-day extravaganza running from January 5-14, 2018.

This Ferrari LaFerrari Doesn’t Mind Going For A Little Swim 2
Dec

Relax, no one lost control and ended up in the water or was crazy enough to try and turn Ferrari’s hybrid hypercar into an amphibious machine; but even so, we highly doubt many owners would even think about putting their precious LaFerrari through this.

In fact, it’s interesting to see a LaFerrari stepping out of its comfort zone, even for a few precious seconds. That’s because most of its siblings are locked away for the cold season, and some for most of their lives as their owners are waiting for them to appreciate in order to make loads of money after floating them in the “used” exotic car market.

The short film reminds us of another one, posted on social media last month, where a bunch of exotics, including a LaFerrari and a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, were taken off-roading and got those precious and sexy bodies dirty.

As was the case with that clip, this one may have been inspired by the famous YouTube Channel ‘TaxTheRich‘, which has done a fain number of stunts with numerous high-end cars over the years.

Ferrari FXX K Evo Coming To UK, Debuts At Autosport International 28

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Ferrari, Ferrari LaFerrari, Ferrari XX, Hybrids, NEC, new cars, UK on 11 28th, 2017


Ferrari’s latest and most advanced track-only toy, the FXX K Evo, will cross the English Channel in less than 2 months to celebrate its UK premiere.

Unveiled at the end of October during the Finali Mondiali event at Mugello, the Ferrari FXX K Evo will be taken to Autosport International, which takes place at the National Exhibition Center (NEC) Birmingham, from January 11 to 14.

In order to become an absolute beast on the track, this hypercar has undergone some extensive revisions made to its aero agenda, which help increase downforce and airflow.

It also gets more carbon fiber than its predecessor, and uses the brand’s F1 know-how in various fields, while also benefiting from a new steering wheel and digital monitors to display the telemetry, hybrid assist, and rear view.

The Ferrari FXX K Evo is said to produce over 830kg (1,830lbs) of downforce at top speed, a 23 percent increase over the ‘regular’ FXX K. Meanwhile, its hybrid powertrain continues to deliver in excess of 1,000hp.

As you’d expect, the Evo is aimed towards a small number of enthusiasts, either as a complete package, or an upgrade to the current FXX K.

There’s Something Delightfully Incongruous About A Base-Spec Exotic 26

Automakers are doing their best these days to make even their most basic, budget-friendly vehicles look polished. But there are some you can expect to see in base spec – mostly for professional use and deployment as part of large fleets.

We’re talking about work-a-day vehicles like the Ram Tradesman, for example, or the Opel Corsavan. But an exotic supercar? Perish the thought!

That’s precisely the delightful incongruity we’ve been seeing these lately, albeit only in the digital realm: six-figure supercars and even seven-figure hypercars stripped of their painted bumpers and flashy wheels, fitted instead with matte black noses and tails and plain old steel rims.

Of course, even if you could, ordering one that way wouldn’t put much of a dent in the purchase price of something as expensive as a Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Agera, Pagani Huayra, or even something as relatively “affordable” as a Lamborghini Huracan, Aston Martin DB11, or Mercedes-AMG GT.

It’d ruin the handling too, and make your big-buck exotic look like it were in the middle of being repaired. So we’re thankful that none of these exist in reality, but it’s still funny to look at these curious renderings from Nikita Aksyonov and chuckle at the “what if” of it all.

What’ll It Be, Four LaFerraris Or This Classic California Spider? 9
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in auction, Classics, Ferrari, Ferrari 250, Ferrari California, Ferrari LaFerrari on 11 9th, 2017


Nobody ever said a Ferrari would be cheap. But even among Prancing Horses, some are more expensive than others. Much, much more expensive.

Take this latest classic consigned to RM Sotheby’s for its upcoming sale in New York, for example. It’s a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Competizione Spider – not unlike the one immortalized in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, only considerably more so.

Chassis number 1451 GT was the second of just eight California Spiders bodied in aluminum and built to competition specifications. And it raced, finishing third in its class and fifth overall at Le Mans in 1959 before going on to compete in (and even win) other local events in the United States.

Ferrari Classiche-certitied, extensively restored in 2011, and returned to its original Le Mans livery, 1451 GT took first in its class at Pebble Beach and a platinum award at the Cavallino Classic. When it crosses the block a month from now, the auctioneer expects it will sell for upwards of $14 (and as much as $17m).

For that kind of money, you could put four LaFerraris in your garage. In fact, if that’s more to your liking, there’ll be one up for grabs at the same event, where it’s expected to sell for about $3.5 million (or a quarter of the California’s low-end value). There’s a (relatively) more accessible 250 GT convertible – a 1961 Series II Cabriolet – also on offer with a ~$1.7-million estimate.

Those are just a few of the seven-figure lots consigned, but the alloy California is the highest, and only one valued at eight figures. Take a gander at the gallery of images below by Cymon Taylor and Diana Varga, courtesy of RM Sotheby’s.
