The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the greatest hypercars the world has ever seen. Even avid McLaren and Porsche fans have massive respect for it. It is, after all, one of the members of the ‘holy trinity’. Porsche’s 918 and McLaren’s P1 are both incredible machines, but there’s something undeniably special about the LaFerrari. It’s not often a car’s model name is the same as its manufacturer name, as is the case here. Though LaFerraris are hard to come by, perhaps the most special one just went up for auction.
RM Sotheby’s will be auctioning off the first ever 2013 Ferrari LaFerrari Prototype. It’s the same LaFerrari that most people first laid eyes on, as it was used in most debuts and press releases. After that, it was stored in Atelier where LaFerrari customers were able to carefully configure every detail of their own car.
Naturally, everything is exactly the same as the production LaFerrari, including the drivetrain and the massive V12 engine. It’s expected to fetch well over 3 million Euros, but fierce bidding can see it go as high as 5 million or even more. Although we hope the lucky owner drives it and properly enjoys it, such a car is worth collecting as well.
