The Ferrari LaFerrari open-top has already sold out

Ferrari has released official pictures of the open-top LaFerrari hypercar, which will debut at the Paris International Motor Show.

Ferrari announced it had given clients ‘a special preview of the open-top hybrid’ and that the ‘order book is closed’, adding that technical details and the number of examples it will build will be announced in Paris.

A removable carbon fibre hard-top comes with the LaFerrari as well as a removable soft-top. Performance figures are said to be identical to the coupe, which means 0-62mph in under three seconds and a top speed around 230mph.

The running gear is also identical in the limited edition car, meaning lucky owners can savour 963bhp and 664lb/ft (900Nm) of torque from a combination of a 6.3-litre V12 petrol engine and an electric motor.

To counteract the removal of the coupe’s roof, Ferrari has made various modifications to retain the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness but neglected to say any specifics. It has also honed the aerodynamics to guarantee the same drag coefficient without the roof in place.

Given the standard LaFerrari costs around £1million, you can safely bet lucky owners paid even more for the more summer-friendly variant.
