500th LaFerrari

The hybrid supercar from Ferrari, the LaFerrari, was limited to a production of only 499 units, with a single unit having a price tag of nearly $1.3 million (Rs 8.7 crore). However, after the devastating earthquakes that hit Italy last year, the Maranello-based manufacturer decided to build one more unit of the LaFerrari coupe. Ferrari decided to use the amount earned from the auction of the last LaFerrari for the reconstruction of central Italy.

On Saturday, night during the Finali Mondiali event at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, Ferrari auctioned off the 500th LaFerrari for a princely sum of $7,000,000 (Rs 47.7 crore). That’s a sum almost five times the original price tag. Earlier in August, Ferrari had auctioned another unit of the LaFerrari for $5,170,000 (Rs 35.2 crore). To stand apart from the standard LaFerrari, the 500th LaFerrari features some cosmetic changes like the Italian tricolour flag on the front fascia and a unique plaque inside. In terms of mechanicals, it remains the same.

The 500th LaFerrari is not only the most expensive LaFerrari to ever be sold at an auction but it's also the most valuable car built in the 21st century ever to be auctioned.

The Italian hypercar is powered by a V12 hybrid motor that is capable of churning out 949PS of peak power and 900Nm of torque, making it one of the most powerful road-legal cars on the planet. The humongous power comes from a 6.3-litre petrol engine, which produces 789PS of power and 700Nm of torque, and is assisted by a 161PS KERS unit, which provides short bursts of power. The Ferrari is capable of reaching 100kmph from standstill in under 3 seconds and has a top speed of 350kmph.
