It was truly a privilege to witness, in the flesh, and even sit in and touch one of only 209 units available on the face of this planet.

This rare specimen I’m referring to is Ferrari’s limited-production LaFerrari Aperta, a special series model produced to mark Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary, which was displayed this morning in a press conference held at Slate @ The Row.In conjunction with the milestone, Naza Italia, the sole official importer and distributor of Ferrari in Malaysia today bestowed upon the media a more than generous preview of a Ferrari you’d most likely not see on the road. The celebrations would also include a series of exclusive events in Penang this weekend. The itinerary includes a grand rally of Ferraris from Kuala Lumpur to Penang’s Unesco site – promising to be the largest of its kind held in Malaysia.

“We are truly honoured to be part of Ferrari’s global celebrations and it gives us great pleasure to be able to pay tribute to Cavallino Rampante history with some of the most devoted Ferrari owners in the nation”, said NAZA World Group Executive Chairman, Datuk Wira Hj. SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin.

On arrival in Penang, the participating Ferraristi’s would be at Jalan Padang Kota Lama nearby the Penang City Hall to form a “majestic feature” – a spectacle that would surely excite both the owners and spectators. A gala dinner will also be held in Fort Cornwallis for the esteemed Ferrari owners to celebrate as members of the Ferrari family where the same LaFerrari Aperta would be on display.

The local celebration is only one of 70 events taking place in 60 countries across the globe with the theme, “Driven by Emotion” as it culminates in Maranello on the 9th and 10th of September 2017.The LaFerrari Aperta, a special series model is a limited edition spider version of the LaFerrari supercar, is dedicated to the most loyal of Ferrari customers. A special website (www.ferrari70.com) has been created to reflect the celebrations as they unfold throughout the year as well as to introduce the pivotal moments and individuals in the company’s history.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
