Having teased a limited edition, convertible LaFerrari a few months ago, Ferrari has now debuted the recently named ‘Aperta’ in Paris. It’s a name traditionally reserved for limited edition Ferrari models, and only 150 examples will see the light of day, although each of them have already been sold for somewhere between $1.5m and $2m.

LaFerrari’s 950bhp hybrid powertrain – including a 6.3-litre V12 and an electric motor – remains intact, as does, amazingly, the performance figures, meaning 0-100kph is achieved in under three seconds en-route to a 350kph top speed. The only design changes, aside from the hard top roof, are two rear buttresses and a roll-hoop, although additional bracing has been added to the carbon fibre chassis.

Ferrari also released details of 70 bespoke liveries, designed to celebrate the marque’s 70th anniversary. Examples on display at the Paris Motor Show include the ‘The Stirling’, inspired by the Stirling Moss-driven 250 GT Berlinetta SWB from the 1961 Tourist Trophy, and ‘The Schumacher’, a nod to the F2003-GA that secured the German his sixth Formula 1 world championship.
