Ferrari goes topless with the LaFerrari Aperta

Roadshow
[SOUND] Paris 2016, it's been a bit of a quiet show, I can't lie. But one of the most exciting cars here is this, the LaFerrari Aperta. Now, what's new, what's different, what's this, what's that? It's got the same power train as the Coupe, which means you've got around 950 horsepower to play with. 0 to 60, less than three seconds. Top speed, with its carbon fiber hard top thingy that is an option, by the way 217 miles a hour, plus, if you find a runway long enough, who knows really. It does come with a fabric top as standard but you can only drive about 80 miles a hour with that on. It's actually as rigid as the coupe, Ferrari adjusted the chassis to make the [UNKNOWN] rigidity just so. You do lose a little bit when you take off the roof, but you know, these guys are engineers, they know what they're doing. What else is different? Well, the radiators have been angled down so the hot air doesn't go over the car, it goes under it. WHich means that the underside has been fiddled with quite a bit and there's a new carbon fiber surround on the wind screen to help aid the turbulence so you don't get too blustery when you're in the cabin. Now the If you want one, it's gonna cost the thick end of 2 million euros. But Ferrari is only building 209 of them, and they're all sold. However there's a car to celebrate Ferrari's 70th anniversary, it is a stunning, stunning Stunning thing. I mean, look at this. It's beautiful. I think it might actually look a little bit better than the hardtop. There is another difference between this and the hardtop. The doors open differently because on the hardtop, of course, they open in the A pillar a little bit higher up. Here, lower down. For the 70th anniversary as well as the Ferrari, [UNKNOWN] said they will also be doing 70 individual And only one of each car will get one. So for example, there's a Michael Shoemake in the 488 over there. There will only be one of those. There will be one 488 Spider. There will be one F12, one GTC, you get the drill. There will be lots of special things coming from Ferrari next year. And you know what? What we've seen today, I have a sneaking suspicion, it only the start of it.
