Gorgeous Ferrari LaFerrari Goes Topless, Bares 950 Horsepower For All During 217 MPH Romps
It's not as though the LaFerrari is need of added sex appeal, it's already a sweet looking Italian ride that any auto buff will instantly fall in lust with. Be that as it may, Ferrari found a way to make it even sexier by removing its top, turning this exotic beauty into a convertible for drivers who find exhilaration in drop-top driving.
Ferrari plans to debut its limited edition topless supercar at the Paris International Motor Show in October. In the meantime, Ferrari shared a few photos of the new open-top LaFerrari, which will feature the same engine as the original LaFerrari—a 6.3-liter V12 paired with a 120 kW electric motor pulling 950 horses and 664 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed sequential manual transmissions directs all that power to the rear wheels.
You can also expect identical performance metrics to the original, such as a 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed exceeding 217 miles per hour. That's because Ferrari made "significant and extensive modifications" to the convertible's chassis with the goal of retaining the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness as the coupe version.
"The car's aerodynamics have also been further honed to guarantee the same drag coefficient even without the roof," Ferrari said.
Other technical characteristics along with the name of the topless version will be announced later. Same goes for the price, though it's of little consequence since Ferrari already sold out of every unit it plans to produce after a special preview to hand-picked clients.
