Ever since we came across this clip we can't stop thinking how these behind-the-scenes moments could serve as a commercial themselves, albeit an overly cheesy one that shows the level of attention a hypercar such as the LaFerrari Aperta can generate.
The open-air incarnation of the Maranello halo car has recently been spotted in Barcelona, with the gas-electric Fezza getting its own roads in the Spanish capital city, as you can see in the video at the bottom of the page.

The purpose of the sunny visit is obvious once you check out the setup around the car, namely the filming of a commercial.

However, we'll use this occasion to get our first good look at the LaFerrari Aperta's carbon fiber hardtop. Judging by the size of the single-panel element, this will be the leave-it-at-home kind, instead of being stored in the nose of the machine as the two-panel CF roof of the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, for instance.

There's no reason to fret about rainy moments, though, as Italian engineers and designers have come up with a foldable canvas roof for the velocity monster.

One might wonder why the Prancing Horse doesn't feel any burden when it comes to parading model that hasn't had its public debut yet around Barcelona. Needless to say, the pace of the hypercar didn't get anywhere near its 217+ (350+ km/h) top speed, which matches that of the fixed-roof model.

Well, for starters, the LaF Aperta has already been showcased over the web, with Ferrari being forced to release three press pics, along with a bit of info, after the vehicle was spied through the Maranello factory gates.

Subsequently, the 950 hp (make that 963 PS, you metric system aficionados) Ferrari has been spotted out in the wild on multiple occasions we're talking about Maranello shots, as well as a Paris appearance).

And while we're talking about the public debut of the sold-out-anyway limited edition, this will take place at the upcoming Paris Motor Show - the press days kick off on September 29. Remember, this hypercar should be a motorised birthday cake, celebrating 70 years of Ferrari road car history.
