You’ll probably have to pay more to have this Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta shipped to the US

Off the top of my head, I can literally think of hundreds of different ways to spend $7.3 million. I could be smart and prudent with it and save most of it. I could splurge on a few excess items, feel good about myself, and then call it a day. Or I could drop every last penny of it on one item. If that last option is what I’m going for, I can’t think of anything better to spend it on than what an exotic car dealership in Dubai is selling: a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta.

Granted, the LaFerrari Aperta’s $7.3 million price tag is incredibly steep and is more than double the price - roughly $3 million - that Ferrari was asking for it. Then again, there are only 210 models of the LaFerrari Aperta in the world and the last production model - #210 - actually sold for almost $10 million a few weeks ago. This LaFerrari Aperta may not sell for that amount - it may not even sell for the dealership’s $7.3 million asking price - but it does have a pretty unique story to tell itself. For one, it’s been tagged as “used,” but it has zero miles under its belt. A likely explanation for that weird quirk is that this LaFerrari Aperta actually belonged to somebody else before the dealership scooped it up and stuck the exorbitant price tag on its windshield. History notwithstanding, it’s still pretty difficult to imagine somebody forking over that much money on a supercar, no matter how exclusive it is. Then again, I’m the same guy that just said I wouldn’t mind paying the dealership’s asking price just so I have the chance to tell everyone that I own one. Good thing I don’t have that kind of money, then, because I might have actually spent all of it on this car.

If you’re a regular guy with regular bills to pay just like me, paying $7.3 million for a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is not only ridiculous, but it’s beyond the realms of possibility. But suppose someone had that much money to pay for one, I think that it’s a solid purchase, massive spike in price notwithstanding. I know. It might be crazy to think of the LaFerrari Aperta in those terms, but this car isn’t a normal one, even if it you compare it with regards to other supercars.

The truth is that the LaFerrari Aperta’s price is fluid at this point. An owner can sell his example, and someone would buy it whether the price be $6 million or $16 million. That’s how sought after the car is. Imagine the #210 LaFerrari selling for $10 million at an auction. That’s more than three times the price of a standard model! Granted, it’s a unique model with a special production number, but a “standard” LaFerrari Aperta being sold for a little over $7 million isn’t that far off. That’s the tricky thing about buying a car like this. There’s really no market price for it as far as the second-hand market is concerned. So you’re left at the mercy of the seller and his willingness to negotiate on a price.

Ultimately, I still think $7.3 million for a LaFerrari is a good enough price for a car that could be worth double that amount in a few years. I know some people will disagree with me and that’s fine. So that you know, I’m talking from a position of someone who will probably have to work for another 100 years to be able to afford it. I can still wish though, right?
