New LaFerrari Record As Aperta Sells For $10 Million
This past weekend, Ferrari held a 70th anniversary celebration at the legendary Fiorano circuit in Italy. At this celebration, a number of Ferraris sold for some crazy amounts, including one LaFerrari Aperta that made its way into the record books.
This LaFerrari Aperta sold for 8.3 million euro ($10 million) at the RM Sotheby’s auction. Proceeds from the sale will go to Save the Children, a charity that works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children around the world.

This marks the 210th LaFerrari sold. What makes this particular unit so desirable is the fact that it is an extra addition to the 209 cars built. It sports a Rosso Fuoco livery with double metallic Biano Italia racing stripes down its hood and tail.
The previous record holder for the most expensive LaFerrari sold was last year’s $7 million model that went to auction to raise funds insupport of earthquake victims in Italy.
Other Ferraris that sold at Fiorano include a California 250 GT SWB ($9.5 million), 1958 250 GT Cabriolet Series 1 ($5.7 million), and a aluminum bodied 365 GTB/4 Japanese barn find (just over $2 million).
All this is letting me know that if I ever want to get my hands on a classic Ferrari, I better figure out a way to pull in some big bucks. Preferrably legally.
