Car enthusiasts who missed out on buying a Ferrari LaFerrari first time around need not worry, as a pristine example of the fastest-ever prancing horse has come up for sale at SuperVettura Sunningdale.

With just 4,300 miles on the clock, the 960bhp hybrid boasts 20-inch alloy wheels, alcantara interior trim, a fire extinguisher and even has around 11 months of its factory warranty left.
There's only one small catch, however. The limited edition supercar, of which only 499 were made, is priced at a staggering £2.75 million - £1.75 million more than when it went on sale over two years ago.

Powered by a 6.3-litre V12 engine and electric motor, the LaFerrari can reach 62mph from a standstill in less than three seconds, hitting 124mph in under seven. Despite an electronic limiter, the collectible model still boasts a top speed of 218mph.

Tommy Wareham, boss of SuperVettura, told The Mirror: "Since we first advertised it this week the phone has not stopped ringing from people all around the world. People see it as a collectible car. There are no other cars which have gone up in value so quickly. The price had doubled while it was still in production and the value is now almost treble what it originally cost."

The model, which was built in the carmaker's Maranello factory, is one of Ferrari's 'halo' models, which are launched every ten years. The previous 'halo' was the legendary Enzo, which went on sale in 2002 for £450,000 but can now cost upwards of £1.5million.
