Marchionne confirms the LaFerrari Spider

In an interview to Automobile, Sergio Marchionne, who is now also Ferrari CEO, has confirmed that the LaFerrari will have a Spider version. His words to the magazine have been precisely these ones: “And by the way, the only future product connected to LaFerrari is the Spider. Which is no secret since potential customers have already been approached.”

It was 4.70 m long, 1.99 m wide, 1.12 m and had a wheelbase of 2.65 m. It’s curb weight was 1,585 kg. It was powered by a 6.3 V12 engine that delivered 588 kW at 9,000 rpm and 700 Nm at 6,750 rpm. It was aided by a HY-KERS system that increase total power to 708 kW and 900 Nm.

The LaFerrari was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.7 s, to 200 km/h in less than 7 s and to 300 km/h in 15 s, with a top speed of more than 365 km/h.
