LaFerrari vs. LaFerrari Aperta

Red LaFerrari Banner

Everything you need to know about the LaFerrari is in its name: LaFerrari; The Ferrari. If it is the definitive Ferrari, then how does one weigh the LaFerrari vs. LaFerrari Aperta? Chicago drivers searching for a limited production, high-performance sports car will find it in both the LaFerrari and LaFerrari Aperta. Come with us as we break down the differences.

LaFerrari: The Definitive Ferrari

The LaFerrari Aperta is a special version of the LaFerrari, and to understand their differences, we should first go over the standards of the LaFerrari. A limited production hybrid sports car, LaFerrari incorporates engineering from the FXX development prototype and research from the Millechili Project to become the quintessential Ferrari.

Highlights of the model include:

  • 6.3L Ferrari F140 V12 rated at 789 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque — supplemented by a 161-hp KERS unit that brings the total output to 950 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Ferrari F140 is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
  • Carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes (398 mm front, 380 mm rear).
  • Carbon fibre monocoque structure with 27% increased torsional rigidity and 22% increased beam stiffness.
  • Electronic safety and performance controls managed by 21 onboard computers.
  • Top speed exceeding 217 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds.

Beyond its performance specs, the LaFerrari makes some bold stylistic choices, including being the first Ferrari since the Dino 308 GT4 to not have Pininfarina bodywork or other styling. The cockpit is rooted in essentialism, with sporty shaping and intuitive placement of controls and gear levers.

What Sets the LaFerrari Aperta Apart?

Now that it’s clear just how much automotive DNA these two vehicles share, it’s time to lay out the differences that come with a LaFerrari Aperta. Unveiled at the 2016 Paris Auto Show, the “Aperta” label designates a removable roof for this limited-run LaFerrari. There’s more separating the LaFerrari and LaFerrari Aperta than the removable carbon fibre (or canvas) top, including:

  • Upgraded powertrain control electronics
  • Longer front air dam for improved downforce
  • Re-angled radiators to direct airflow out along the underbody
  • Different door opening angles and wheel arches

Drivers seeking an incredibly rare modern Ferrari should set their sights on the LaFerrari Aperta: only 210 models were produced. 200 were sold, nine were reserved for the Ferrari 70th Anniversary celebration, and a single model was later sold at auction.
