Ferrari shows last LaFerrari Aperta

This is collectors\' very last chance to buy a new LaFerrari.

Ferrari has built one final example of the limited-edition LaFerrari Aperta for charity. The 210th car will be auctioned off by RM Sotheby's during a one-make sale taking place on the Prancing Horse's Fiorano, Italy, track on September 9th.

The model is painted in metallic Rosso Fuoco, and it features a Bianco Italia double racing stripe that runs from front to back. Red and white are pretty common colors on a Ferrari, but the company notes it's the first time an Aperta has donned this livery.

The interior receives black Alcantara upholstery with red leather inserts in the seats and red contrast stitching. There is also shiny black carbon fiber trim on the dashboard to remind passengers of the car's lightweight construction.

Ferrari hasn't made any mechanical modifications. Power comes from a gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain built around a 789-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 engine capable of revving to 9,350 rpm. It's coupled to a 120-kilowatt electric motor, which bumps the powertrain's total output to 949 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque.

The standard car has been sold out for over a year, so this is collectors' very last chance to pick up a brand-new LaFerrari Aperta. RM Sotheby's predicts it will sell for anywhere between three and four million euros ($3.5 and $4.7 million). The proceeds from the sale will be donated to Save the Children, an international charity focused on educating kids around the world.
