We always want what's almost impossible to have... and the folks who make Ferrari sports cars know that. Ferrari, the most profitable automotive unit at Turin, Italy-based Fiat SpA, unveiled the LaFerrari sports car at the Geneva Motor Show back in March.
Guess what? The 963-horsepower hybrid is already sold out. But that doesn't mean you can't make a call and get your name on the list for 2015...
Using technology developed for Formula One racing, the LaFerrari combines two electric motors with a 12-cylinder gasoline engine to produce more horsepower than any previous Ferrari model, while cutting fuel consumption by as much as 40 percent.
Ferrari, whose line-up includes the F12berlinetta and four-seat FF, plans to reduce deliveries by 400 cars this year to about 6,900 vehicles.
Believe it or not, the LaFerrari sold out even before being shown. Ferrari plans to make only 499 of the model.
How exclusive a club is it? If you purchase one of these vehicles, you can be assured that each one is numbered and fit with a driver's seat molded to your body. The supercar maker aims to build about 200 LaFerraris this year and complete deliveries in 2014, Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said earlier this year.
