Who would drop $2.2 million on car?
Apparently, a whole lot of people. On Thursday, Ferrari premiered a new convertible version of its LaFerrari model (called LaFerrari Aperta) at the Paris Motor Show, and according to CNBC, the $2.2 million car has already sold out.
To be fair, there aren’t exactly a lot of them available. Ferrari will only be making 209 of these cars and is keeping nine for itself. The cars were sold out ahead of yesterday’s launch, and the brand says they had three times as many offers as there were cars.
The reason for the hyped interest? Well like most Ferrari cars, it’s incredibly built and can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in three seconds with a top speed of up to 200 miles per hour.
Also, as CNBC’s Robert Frank points out, these cars may seem crazy expensive at retail, but they can sell for even more in resale. The regular LaFerrari sold for $1.4 million in 2014, but can fetch $5 million now at auction. So that $2.2 million price tag is actually a fairly good bargain. [CNBC]
