How the hell is the Ferrari FXX K cheaper than a LaFerrari Aperta?

Wait, what?

3y ago

When browsing through the classifieds, as any petrolhead does, dreaming of what I'd buy when I win the lottery, this popped up.

While perusing I came across an advert on JamesEdition for a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta for sale for an eye watering €5.2 million by Knight International who are a supercar dealer located in Dubai. At first I didn't believe the price, but a little Google search suggested that it's not as far fetched as I first thought.

Naturally you have a look at their other stock on the wesbite which also has two Ferrari FXX Ks for sale - one is sold and the other is going for €3.5 million. Beside them are two LaFerrari Apertas - again, one sold and the other for €5.2 million.

The FXX K is the ultimate version of the LaFerrari. It's a track only beast with 1,036bhp. It's raw, it's hardcore and not for the faint of hearted. Considering that you can't even buy one of these new because Ferrari has to invite you to buy the car makes it somewhat of a rarity, especially to come up for sale online.

The LaFerrari already fetches a huge premium of £2 million and with the Aperta having less than half of the units than the hard top, naturally it will increase in value over time, but nobody has guessed examples would sell for this much so quickly.

So why is the Aperta almost twice the price? If you've got any theories then let us know!

  • It’s right in the article, the aperta goes for more because it’s a streetable car.

    • I imagine there are not a lot of people on this world that can buy a ferrari but don't care about being seen in one on the streets.

  • I don't think "cheaper" is the right word to describe any Ferrari.

  • The Aperta is more expensive because it road friendly which the FXXK isnt

    • This is also true - and also therefore the reason I would have it over the FXXK. Nothing is stopping you taking the LaFA on the track anyway!

    • Lets be honest if you could afford a Laferrari Aperta youd probely be able to hire a track for the day without worrying about the price
