It was expected that for the two of the most valuable cars shown during the auction, the bidding would be heated.

Anyways, you can’t argue that the 2017 release is worth it.

Of course, the amenities aren’t just in the power. The priciest Ferrari at RM Sotheby’s includes electronic controls of traction and stability.
Aperta’s Pearly Paint and Design
The famous Giallo Triplo Strato kind of coloring reminds of the common yellow and black notes on many supercars of the past and present. The shiny yellow exterior and the black interior are of immeasurable beauty on Aperta. Double exhaust pipes on right and left at the rear, carbon trim from inside, Ferrari logo on headsets and a couple of accessoires give you a decent feel of extravagance for this aggressive but quiet roadster. The latter feature is a reality thanks to a button in the salon that enables a let-out of a milder performance sound.

As a conclusion, LaFerrari Aperta symbolizes the decades-long ideology of the highly appreciated manufacturer.
