The pricing isn’t all that preposterous considering that second-hand LaFerrari coupes are selling for $5 million these days. There is no information available regarding production numbers, but there’s no denying the LaFerrari Spider will be made in limited numbers. 499 examples of the breed seem unlikely, though, because the Spider needs better bragging rights than the fixed-head LaFerrari hybrid hypercar.
As for the roof, the LaFerrari Spider is rumored to come with a removable hard top because a folding mechanism would add too much weight and a soft top would get in the way of this baby’s top speed. 220 mph (354 km/h) should be doable with the top in place. The LaFerrari Spider will use a 6.3-liter V12, an electric motor, and a kinetic energy recovery system along with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The combined output of this Formula 1-inspired powertrain? 963 PS (708 kW or 950 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). I know this is a hybrid powertrain, but the LaFerrari Spider won’t be able to run on electricity alone. Just like in the case of the standard LaFerrari, the battery attached to the floor of the chassis will send electricity to the electric motor only to enhance the acceleration of the Ferrari LaFerrari Spider.
