Ferrari Reveals LaFerrari Convertible Ahead of Paris Debut

Published

LaFerrari Aparta Convertible

Ferrari has revealed the convertible version of the LaFerrari hypercar ahead of its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and released a slew of photos showing off its sexiness. Technical details will be released during the grand event.

The ‘LaFerrari Aperta’ will be produced in very limited number, although a figure has yet to be provided by the Italian automaker.

Not that it matters because Ferrari has already sold every LaFerrari convertible it plans to build.

The topless hypercar will — expectedly — have the same hybrid setup as the regular LaFerrari, meaning a V12 engine that works together with an electric motor to produce a combined 949 horsepower and 663 lb-ft. of torque.

Engineers made “significant and extensive modifications” to the car’s chassis to ensure the highest level structural rigidity and reworked its aerodynamics to maintain the coupe’s drag coefficient when driving without a top.

Would you choose the LaFerrari Roadster over the LaFerrari coupe assuming performance figures are near identical? Let us know in the comments below.

Presented as a roadster, the LC Convertible Concept is designed to express “ultimate beauty” and serve as an aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup. Its proportions are nearly identical to the LC Coupe but stands out with a steeply-raked windshield and a contoured trunk lid.

“This concept takes the unmistakable design of the LC coupe and reimagines it as a future convertible,” said Tadao Mori, chief designer of the LC Convertible concept. “It blends all the best aspects of the original coupe with the dynamic design of an open-air convertible.”

The interior features white leather trim, contrasted by yellow accent stitching to break up an otherwise monochrome look.
