A LaFerrari with under 1000 miles in a one-of-one color is a recipe for one of the biggest prices for a modern car at auction ever.
The Ferrari LaFerrari is a strange one. The defining Ferrai of the 2010s was a deserving halo car that ushered in the company’s hybrid era with an unforgettable look. It also failed to break away from its contemporaries, the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918, to stand alone as an immortal in the way the F40 did when this Ferrari halo line started in the late ’80s. It leaves something between an instant classic and just another collectible sports car, a car that belongs in a museum but not quite on the museum’s brochure. While that doesn’t necessarily leave the LaFerrari as an untouchable unicorn, it still makes just about every private sale newsworthy.
This particular LaFerrari is headed to auction in November. Every 1-of-499 LaFerrari is special, but this one adds the distinction of being the only car ordered in a shade of wine-like purple called Vinaccia. That shade and the complimenting Pelle Chiodi di Garofano (brown) interior both come from historic Ferraris in the original owner’s collection.
