2017 LaFerrari Aperta hybrid V12 engine – Will you buy this for ₦290 million price tag?
It was interesting to find out that this same engine had once been posted on the same platform “eBay” back in the year 2017 for just ₦103 million ($285,000) as the price which the seller was willing to sell it back then. But now in 2019, we are looking at almost triple of the price in the new listing.
So, where are the remaining parts of the 2017 LaFerrari Hypercar from which the engine is removed?

A Limited Edition 2017 LaFerrari Aperta Hypercar cost at least ₦504m & can only be bought via auction now
Many people will be shocked at the ₦290 million ($800,000) price tag on the salvaged 2017 LaFerrari hybrid V12 engine because the price of the engine alone is enough to acquire a brand-new Bentley Mulsanne plus a 2019 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII which starts at ₦100 million ($276,000) and ₦162 million ($450,000) respectively.
Funny isn’t it?
We do have to mention that the LaFerrari Limited Edition Hypercar is all sold out already with each unit priced above ₦504 million ($1.4 million) and you could only get such a car nowadays through auction alone.
In fact, an open-top version which was also the last unit of the LaFerrari Aperta cost ₦792 million ($2.2 million) and has been auctioned for ₦3.6 billion ($10 million) back in the year 2017.
