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.

Design-wise, the Lamborghini Diablo features a number of elements for which the brand is recognised for. The shape of the vehicle is reminiscent, to some extent, of earlier Lamborghini models, however it was unique enough to stand out.

Various different versions of the Lamborghini Diablo were introduced during its production run, with the first being the Diablo VT. Introduced in 1993, the Diablo VT differed from the Diablo in many ways, one of which being the addition of all wheel drive. The vehicle also became more powerful, however for the most part it remained the same.

The Diablo SE30 and SE30 Jota were the next to be introduced in 1994. They were built to commemorate Lamborghini’s 30th anniversary. The vehicles were a lot more powerful than the original Diablo. Many changes could be seen in the designs as well.

Lamborghini Countach

It’s nearly impossible to tell which supercar is the best. So many fantastic and unique vehicles have been produced over the years that it’s hard to pick just a single one. Today, we are going to look at the 1971 Lamborghini Countach. First introduced at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle revolutionised the sports car and raised the bar for all its competitors. More about Lamborghini Countach here

The Countach’s design completely reinvented the sports car and pioneered the sharply angled, wedge-shaped look, which to this day remains popular in the world of sports cars.

Lamborghini Countach proved popular with car buyers selling 2,049 units between 1971 and 1990.

Not only was the Countach fun to look at but it was also rather fun to drive. It included the Lamborghini Miura’s 4-liter engine and was capable of reaching a top speed of around 180 mph (290 km/h).

A number of different models of the Countach were introduced during its 19 year production run including the 25th Anniversary Countach.

Built to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary, the vehicle featured some minor restyling. Although it featured elements that the Countach was already known for, it included a number of upgrades. It remained in production for 2 years, between 1988 and 1990, and 658 units were produced.

United States was Lamborghini Countach’s biggest market, which is why most of the vehicles were sold there. Around 1985, the US model of the Countach came with a price tag of about $100,000. Several upgrades were available such as a sound system and an aerodynamic spoiler however both of which would set you back from $5000 to $7000.

Is Lamborghini Countach the best sports car ever produced? Perhaps not however it’s an extremely fun vehicle that will forever remain part of Lamborghini’s history.
