LaFerrari Aperta: Hundreds gather to see hybrid supercar in Northern Ireland

Ferrari fans in Northern Ireland were treated to a special viewing of the LaFerrari hybrid supercar over the weekend.

As part of Ferrari's 70th anniversary celebrations, fans, owners and enthusiasts admired the LaFerrari at three locations on Saturday, in an event organised by Charles Hurst.

The LaFerrari Aperta is an open-top version of Ferrari’s limited edition 217mph hybrid supercar.

Since Charles Hurst is Ireland’s only official Ferrari dealer, the car was exclusively on view in Northern Ireland at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, Titanic Slipways, and Hillsborough Castle.

After its starring role at the Festival of Speed, the LaFerrari Aperta has travelled around the Official Ferrari Dealer Network throughout July and August, allowing fans the chance to see the exclusive car.

Only 209 Apertas will be built and 200 will be sold. The remaining nine models are reserved for show during Ferrari’s anniversary celebrations.

In December last year a LaFerrari went under the hammer for £5.7m, making it the most valuable 21st century automobile sold at auction.
