500th LaFerrari is being created.

500th LaFerrari to help the victims of recent Italian earthquake

The Ferrari LaFerrari featured a 499-unit production run which is being increased to 500 units. The money made from the sale of the final car going to the victims of the recent Italian earthquake which occurred just a few days ago.

The 950bhp LaFerrari finished its production run in 2015, but one extra model is being made to be sold at auction. With such a small production number, it’s no surprise that examples which make it onto the used market carry a heavy premium over the car’s £1.15 million price.

Used LaFerrari currently sell for between £2.5m and £3m with some even reaching above £4m, although it’s likely that the car value of the 500th may exceed this considerably.

A source at Ferrari said that the original demand for LaFerrari was more than double the supply, and this is the last opportunity for a buyer to own a LaFerrari from new which will create a lot of opportunities for the people who have enough money to buy it new and own something that will be for a good cause but also to make themselves feel special as the LaFerrari will most likely feature some sort of small detail change in the design to signify that it is a special, final edition.

The drop-top LaFerrari, named Aperta, will be revealed at the Paris motor show in a few weeks, but the 500th LaFerrari will be the very last coupé version built.

The last LaFerrari is being built to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in central Italy, which struck on 24th August and claimed the lives of hundreds while leaving thousands more homeless.

Each standard LaFerrari carries a plaque bearing the words ‘Limited edition [car number]/499’, or the car’s number in the production run, but a source at Ferrari indicated that the 500th example may carry a plaque demonstrating its special status as the very last car, sold to help the victims of the earthquake.

Ferrari have previous experience with helping provide auctions for charities and previously auctioned an Enzo after the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. That car carried a similar plaque, so it’s likely that this LaFerrari will be the same. The winning bidder may also get to choose the colour and spec of the car; however, nothing is for certain at this point.

Currently, Subaru’s line-up is quite solid as it offers something for everyone. From smaller models to family cars and SUV’s, the brand covers a wide range of models, which is part of the reason why it’s so popular, especially in Japan.

Hybrids are very popular at the moment and a lot of manufacturers are choosing to use that knowledge to their advantage. Their recent growth in popularity increased demand, therefore it’s no surprise that Sabaru is attempting to come out with something unique to offer in that specific sector.

Early reports suggest that the success of the brand’s upcoming hybrid sports car will have an effect on the range. If the car does well, it’s expected Subaru will go ahead with the project, however if it isn’t received that well, nothing will ever come of it.

Is the BMW Vision Next 100 the strangest concept ever produced?

The highly-anticipated BMW Vision Next 100 concept, built to celebrate the brand’s 100th birthday, has finally been unveiled and it’s better than we could have ever imagined.

It’s hard to believe that BMW has been around for 100 years. We are so familiar with the brand that we simply don’t give it much thought, but it’s fascinating to see that BMW is still going strong and is more popular than ever before.

A highly unique and fascinating new concept has been built to commemorate the occasion. BMW went all out, experimenting with new ideas and technologies of the future.

The Vision Next 100 is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It sports completely unique styling that’s both futuristic and bold. Instead of using a standard steel body, BMW decided to experiment with carbonfibre and plastic to create something it hasn’t attempted before.

On top of that, the new concept experiments with autonomous technology. In theory the car would give the driver an option to switch between modes, allowing them to take control of the car should they desire to do so.

To enter the Vision Next 100 all you need is the key, which has a built in sensor that opens the doors as you approach the vehicle. The wing-style doors look fantastic and match the car’s aesthetic perfectly.

The great thing about the new concept is that it works as a whole. Many different elements and technologies were included so it’s fantastic to see that the brand managed to pull it off. Everything goes together and nothing feels out of place.

Inside, the vehicle is spacious and just as unique. The dashboard is simple yet futuristic-looking, which gives the interior an interesting finish.

Unfortunately, the Vision Next 100 isn’t going to enter production as it was merely a concept designed to showcase the brand’s ideas of what’s to come in the future.

As the name suggests, the Next 100 was simply the brand’s way of experimenting with intriguing ideas that will potentially appear on its future models.

What do you think of the concept? If it entered production would you purchase it considering it would likely come with a steep price tag?
