Ferrari will produce just 499 units of the obsessed-over LaFerrari supercar. The brand announced last year that it would favor exclusivity over volume–and backed up the claim by turning away many hopeful LaFerrari buyers with loaded pockets, with the famous and even icons subject to rejection. In fact, Ferrari CEO Luca di Montezemolo hand picked the list of buyers personally…leaving many to wonder if the Prancing Horse could be a bit miffed that number 1/499 is now gracing a used car lot with an asking price much higher than the purchase price? That is correct, there is a LaFerrari for sale.
The LaFerrari hypercar for sale just happens to be the first one to roll off the production line, boasting the number 1/499.
Yes, the first-ever LaFerrari was listed for sale for just $3.2 million USD (it could be sold by now). The purchase price for the first run of LaFerrari was already steep at $1.8 million. Many poor unfortunate souls went to great lengths in attempts to own a LaFerrari, including a man who purchased several other Ferrari cars in order to meet the strict criteria. You see, Ferrari had decided that all 499 LaFerrari buyers should own other Ferrari cars and other hurdles. It was said that attempting to purchase a LaFerrari was more demanding than applying to an Ivy League school.

The glorious 1/499. LaFerrari is a super-hybrid, producing a staggering 950 Prancing Horses from its unique stable.
It seems that one of the stipulations for buying a LaFerrari should have been: Thou shalt not sell LaFerrari for a full five years.
