The new Limited Edition Special Series from Maranello

The LaFerrari Aperta is car launched to mark the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the Ferrari, raising Ferrari's unique core values to a whole new level.

The LaFerrari Aperta is designed for Ferrari's most passionate clients in very few examples - all of them already accounted for. It is the spider version of the LaFerrari supercar and it required intensive development work by Ferrari's technicians on the car's chassis and aerodynamics, producing a roadster that delivers the same performance, torsional rigidity, beam stiffness and drag coefficient as the coupe. 

The Aperta utilizes the LaFerrari's hybrid power-train, comprising the 800 cv 6,262 cc V12 (specific power output 128 cv/l, compression ratio 13.5:1) coupled with a 120 kW electric motor, for a total power output of 963 cv. It utilizes also the same dynamic control systems integrated with the active aerodynamics.

Design
The LaFerrari Aperta's styling retains the same essential characteristics of the coupe. It is a futuristic and absolutely extreme car, seamlessly combining form and function whilst retaining clear links to classic Ferrari styling cues. 
The only difference with the coupe is the door rotation system: when fully open, the LaFerrari Aperta's doors are at a slightly different angle than in the coupe version.

Chassis
Since the car does not have a roof, Ferrari's engineers had to focus on the lower section in order to add reinforcement. In fact this are is subject to different stresses vs. the coupe, where force lines converge in the upper part instead.
With a series of targeted modifications designed to reinforce that area, the LaFerrari Aperta delivers the same torsional rigidity as the LaFerrari, becoming the benchmark of the supercar category in terms of dynamic performance

Power Train
The LaFerrari Aperta's powertrain is the same as the LaFerrari, utilizing hybrid technology. It couples an 800 CV 6262cc V12 with a 120 kW (163 CV) electric motor for a total output of over 960 CV. Thanks to the HY-Kers system, it is the most high performance and efficient Ferrari to date.
The 6,262 cc V12 is Ferrari's most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever for a road car. It delivers 800 hp and spins to 9,250 rpm for extraordinary performance, fun behind the wheel and unmistakable Ferrari sound. These results are the product of meticulous development of the engine's volumetric, mechanical and combustion efficiency. To boost volumetric efficiency, the V12 utilizes continuously variable-length intakes - a F1 engine derived technology - optimizing performance as a function of engine speed. The hybrid powertrain generates total torque in excess of 900 Nm: the instantaneous torque from the electric motor is employed at lower revs, while the V12 engine power and torque are optimized at higher revs.

Aerodynamic
The aerodynamic challenge with the LaFerrari Aperta was to retain the coupe' speed, by achieving the same drag figure as the LaFerrari, even when driving without the hard top.
In order to manage the hot air flow from the radiators through the bonnet, the angle of inclination of the radiators was modified. In the coupe, the radiators are angled to ensure that the air flow hugs the bonnet. In the LaFerrari Aperta the radiating masses are angled backwards to direct the air flows out along the underbody. This solution ensures complete separation of the hot air from the flow reaching the cockpit, keeping temperature levels for passengers comfortable. 
By deflecting the hot air to the underbody also meant that the vortex generators had to be redesigned. The front dam is now longer while the underbody surface around the longitudinal vortex generators has been lowered, boosting the ground effect and therefore ability of the car to generate efficient down-force.
In terms of open-top aerodynamic comfort, an angled wind-stop fixed to the parcel shelf was developed in order to capture the high-speed air flow that would otherwise enter the cabin from top of the windscreen. This solution delivers a level of interior comfort in line with other convertibles in the Ferrari range without increasing drag.

Vehicle Dynamics
Like the coupe version, the LaFerrari Aperta's active aerodynamics and hybrid system are integrated and constantly interacting with the other dynamic control systems for unprecedented performance and unparalleled exhilaration. 
Proprietary Ferrari algorithms guarantee optimal integration of electric motor and V12 engine managing dynamic behavior. When the car is cornering, the HY-KERS keeps the V12's revs up to ensure quicker response times to the throttle when exiting.
The Brembo brakes integrate with the energy recovery system and have lighter calipers with specific design in order to guarantee maximum heat dissipation from the carbon-ceramic discs.
