Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta spotted in Barcelona

Updated: 


Ferrari's hotly anticipated LaFerrari Aperta has been spotted undergoing filming on what appear to be closed roads in Barcelona.

Photographs shared by AldoCars on Facebook show the striking supercar – of which only 150 are to be built – being shot by a large camera rig.

The open-top model was only revealed to the public in a series of photographs in July, with its official name and full technical specifications set to be announced at next month's Paris International Motor Show.

However, a display plaque in place of the numberplate appears to confirm that the model will indeed take the Aperta name, rather than the suggested 'Spider'.

A badge, which reads '70, 1947 – 2017', on the car's sideskirt indicates that the model will be released next year, marking the Italian carmaker's 70th anniversary.

Finished in Ferrari's signature Rosso Corsa shade, the car also boasts silver pinstripes – not seen in the original images.

In place of the LaFerrari's fixed roof, the Aperta will feature a carbon-fibre removable hardtop, with a soft-top also available.

It will utilise the same running gear as the original LaFerrari, however extensive chassis modifications have been made to keep the same torsional rigidity and beam stiffness as its coupé sibling.

Performance figures will also remain on a par with it, with the car sporting a V12 engine coupled with a 120 kW electric motor.

While pricing has not yet been revealed, one of the highly sought-after cars is rumoured to have been pre-ordered for almost $6million (£4.5million).
