One-off Ferrari LaFerrari with custom paint to fetch massive money

Only 499 were built

It's been half a decade since our trio of Hammond, Clarkson, and May reviewed the holy trinity of hypercars. We were made to understand how these cars utilised electric power to boost power outputs instead of making them green. Evidently, these cars were benchmarks of their time so one should expect nothing but big money. Including the owner.

Popular auction website RM Sotheby's has a unique 2016 Ferrari LaFerrari listed to go under the hammer on November 6th this year. While most collectors would prefer its open-top Aperta iteration, this hypercar unit has its own unique touches up its sleeve.

Kicking things off is a paltry 918-mile speedometer reading, rendering its current status to 'barely driven'. But what makes it truly stand out is the one-of-one special-order livery of Vinaccia paint over Pelle Chiodi Di Garofano interior, with the latter specifically commissioned to match the owner's two other historic Ferraris. Add the already-equipped luggage set to the mix, and you're looking at an almost new Ferrari hypercar finished in a one-off paint scheme.

The owner is said to have kept the hypercar for a mere year or two before selling it off to the consignor. The burgundy coloured hypercar has been locked up in a climate-controlled storage facility ever since.

The one-third of the holy trinity gets powered by a 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine with the tacho needle touching over 9000rpm. The non-turbo V12 produces 789hp and 701Nm torques while the accompanying electric motor produces 161hp. When combined, the output figures measure at a whopping 949hp and 898Nm torques.

Just 499 units were ever produced. With this model carrying the one-off livery and essentially constituting as a modern-day collectable, it will fetch massive money. Still, it won't rank among the most expensive Ferraris ever sold. Part of the reason being classic Ferraris has already sold for gigantic sums of money, which no new car can demand at the moment. For instance, a Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48 million, whereas a 1956 Ferrari 290 MM racing car sold for $22 million. RM Sotheby's estimates this one-off Ferrari LaFerrari to fetch approximately $3 million or above. Worth it?
