Ferrari LaFerrari is Officially Sold Out
Despite its high price, more than 1,000 people expressed interest in the supercar within days of its official debut. Now it looks like Ferrari has finally selected the lucky 499 clients for its new supercar, meaning the LaFerrari is officially sold out.
During the unveiling of the LaFerrari, Marco Mattiacci, the president and CEO of Ferrari North America, said that all the 120 units destined for the American market were spoken for, and now the entire world’s allotment is spoken for.
According to Mattiacci the new LaFerrari is the first step in a new strategy for Ferrari to make its brand and its cars more exclusive. This means that Ferrari will build fewer cars, but they will be even more expensive.

Ferrari unveiled the LaFerrari — the successor to the Enzo supercar — at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model features an aggressive design language and a hybrid system for the first time in Ferrari’s history.
The LaFerrari gets a HY-KERS system that combines a 6,262 cc (6.3-liter) V-12 engine with two electric motors — one motor powers the driven wheels and the second drives the ancillaries.
This system delivers a total of 963 horsepower — 800 delivered by the V-12 engine and 163 by the electric motors, which allows the car to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds and up to a top speed of more than 217 mph.
