Leake Auction Company has announced that a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari will be auctioned during their spring sale in Dallas Market Hall, April 21, 22 and 23. The stunning vehicle is the first Ferrari to be equipped with the F1-derived HY-KERS hybrid drivetrain. When combined with a 161-HP electric motor and the most powerful Ferrari V-12, it powers at 949 HP and 663-lb-ft of torque.
Unveiled during the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, LaFerrari provides the highest output power of any Ferrari. With a top speed exceeding 217 mph, it can reach 62 mph in less than three seconds. There were four objectives when designing this car: maximize aerodynamic efficiency, deliver ideal weight distribution, achieve the lowest possible center of gravity and integrate seamlessly with the hybrid unit. This was accomplished without restricting interior space or reducing comfort. Pininfarina did not have any input on design of the car, another first for Ferrari.
- F-1 7-speed dual clutch gearbox
- Two Tone Body Painting (Nero DS 1250)
- Brembo carbon ceramic brakes
- Carbon Fibre Outer Mirrors
- Red Prancing Horse embroidered head rests
- Large size seat cushion option (Schienale Taglia)
- 569 actual miles
To originally be considered a potential buyer for LaFerrari, customers must have already owned five Ferraris. Dealerships submitted the names of their most loyal customers for review. It is rumored that Ferrari used the purchase opportunity as a reward for people who have remained loyal to the brand.
“Because this is a low production car and Ferrari hand-selected potential owners, we anticipate a lot of interest in this car. With only 500 produced, very few people had access to a LaFerrari,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “We have a true, one-owner car that has never seen rain. It is immaculate and has been very well maintained. With less than 600 miles, this is a Ferrari collector’s dream. Some claim this is the rarest hypercar of the 21st century because it combines the greatest technical capabilities from both GT and Formula 1 engineering.”
