I don’t know many artists who own $1.6 million hybrid hypercars. Mostly, they drive decrepit pickup trucks or bicycles. Swiss artist Cornelia Hagmann is obviously the exception to the rule, because she just took delivery of this gorgeous Rosso Corsa 2014 LaFerrari.
Ferrari Magazine recently ran a brief profile on the painter and sculptor along with the above brief video. The Austrian-born Hagmann made a name for herself in the art world painting vibrantly colored landscapes and currently lives in Switzerland. Her husband, Swiss businessman Walter Hagmann, was an avid Ferrari collector and sparked her passion for the Italian brand. Unfortunately, Mr. Hagmann passed away about a year ago after he placed the order for the LaFerrari as a gift for his wife.
To review, the Ferrari LaFerrari utilizes a 6.3-liter V-12 producing 800 horsepower mated to a 163-horsepower electric motor. Combined, the system produces 963 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque. The sprint to 60 mph takes less than three seconds and top speed is 217 mph. It’s five seconds faster around the Fiorano test track than Ferrari’s previous halo car, the Enzo.
Only 399 will be made, and from the video, it looks like this LaFerrari will be living in Hagmann’s garage next to her F12 Berlinetta. Not a bad two-car garage if you ask us.
