Many hoping to obtain the latest Ferrari supercar, LaFerrari, have met with devastating results. The brand is only making 499 units of the $1.3 million dollar supercar. Ferrari is hand-picking those will have the privilege of owning one, turning down even high-profile figures and deep pockets. Prospective LaFerrari buyers must also own at least 5 other Ferrari cars to qualify. A Filipino man hoping to meet with Maranello’s approval recently dropped $750,000 on a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta–bringing his collection up to the magic number five!
Recently Ferrari announced plans to make their exclusive supercars even more elusive. The Prancing Horse meant every word, as it is nearly impossible for buyers to get their hands on the wheel of the new LaFerrari hypercar. Just 499 examples of the latest Horse will be created, and neither fame nor money can secure a car!
According to Ferrari North America CEO Marco Mattiacci, any person wishing to purchase a LaFerrari should already own 20 to 30 other Ferraris. If that sounds a little insane, it is because the brand wants to cater to an elite group of loyal brand collectors. The price tag of LaFerrari is a cool $1.3 million, and many high-profile individuals have already been turned down.
