2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Convertible Revealed Ahead of 2016 Paris Auto Show

MARANELLO, Italy — The wraps came off the 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari convertible on Tuesday, ahead of the exotic droptop's debut this fall at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.

"All available examples have already been sold after a special preview to clients," Ferrari said in a statement. "The order book is closed."

Pricing and the official name of the car were not announced. Ferrari said the number of units to be built will be announced at the Paris show.

The LaFerrari convertible gets a removable carbon-fiber hard top and a removable soft top.

The carbon-fiber chassis of the LaFerrari received "significant and extensive modifications" to maintain torsional strength, the Italian automaker said. The droptop's aerodynamics were adjusted to ensure the drag coefficient is the same as the LaFerrari coupe.

The LaFerrari convertible shares the 950-horsepower hybrid system with the coupe version. It combines a 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor and a battery pack.

This limited-edition vehicle "is aimed at clients and collectors who refuse to compromise on the joy of al fresco driving even when at the wheel of a supercar," Ferrari said.

The LaFerrari convertible joins a short list of the most desirable and expensive droptops in the world, including the Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder, McLaren 650S Spider and Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe convertible.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers with deep pockets can only dream about this droptop since they are all spoken for. But Ferrari dealers will be happy to show you other exotic cars that will make you just as satisfied.
