LaFerrari Spyder revealed

LaFerrari Spyder revealed

The coolest Ferrari out just became even madder, as Maranello announce a convertible version of its insane LaFerrari sports car

YOU know what would make the epic LaFerrari even better? Less roof, apparently.

Maranello has announced overnight it will produce an open-top version of its hybrid hyper car that looks fit for Bruce Wayne.

The name and technical specifications of the new car will be announced at the Paris International Motor Show in October this year.

I’m sure we are not alone in wanting one of these batmobile-esque beauties in our garage! Well if you do too, it is likely you never will, since Ferrari has already sold its yet to be announced allocation.

One person who already has a key for his drop-top LaFerrari is British chef Gordon Ramsey, who showed off the fob for his new wheels while appearing on the latest season of Top Gear.

The limited-edition Fezza will come equipped with a removable carbon-fibre hard top, as well as a removable soft-top. Because, when you spend this amount of money you get some options!

The al fresco prancing horse has the same running gear and performance figures as the original LaFerrari, with a 6.3-litre, 588kW V12, combined with an electric motor to produce a total of 708kW.

Ferrari claims the convertible LaFerrari will have the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness as the coupe, as well as have the same drag coefficient when blasting along with the top down.

But in the end, does any of that really matter? When you have a naturally-aspirated V12 singing you a high-revving opera, will torsional rigidity really be what you are thinking about? Nah, us either.
