Musician Drake, always on the lookout for a new ride, recently picked up a Ferrari LaFerrari to tool around in, and probably terrify the drivers of compact cars. But, he’s not alone. Kylie Jenner’s husband slapped a big figurative bow on a Ferrari LaFerrari for Kylie, too, this week, presenting the new mother with an example of the hypercar model as a postnatal gift that should stave off the postpartum blues.
Production of the LaFerrari model was limited to 500 units. It has long since been discontinued.
The LaFerrari is a mild-hybrid with a 6.3L V12 engine. The electric engine and gasoline engine combine to give the car a power rating of about 950 HP. It’s a highly collectible car, with examples selling at auction in the millions of dollars. The model is distinguished by its active aerodynamics. The LaFerrari can reach a top speed of 217 MPH.
Drake’s example is finished in extrovert yellow, or what Ferrari calls Giallo Modena. It features yellow brake calipers, too, to make it that much more noticeable. And, the color motif is picked up as an accent in the cabin of the car, with yellow piping setting off the black alcantara and black leather.
Two Ferrari LaFerrari models with celebrity owners pop up in the same week, and hit the news. Isn’t social media a beautiful thing? You bet it is.
