Watch a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta Get Detailed in a Dream Garage and Feel Your Soul Come Alive
Excuse us while we pick our jaws up off the floor.
When Ferrari set out to allocate the precious few LaFerrari Apertas, it faced quite a challenge in winnowing down its long list of potential buyers to 200 worthy recipients. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay? In, apparently. Noted American Ferrari collector David Lee? Out like a light bulb. And if owning a 1990 F40, a 1995 F50, a 2003 Enzo, and a "regular" LaFerrari isn't enough to sway the bosses at Maranello, what on Earth is?
Well for starters, it helps if you build your ultra exclusive supercar collection a dream garage that looks like a cross between John D. Rockefeller's personal library and a Masonic temple. In a gorgeous, jaw-dropping new video, detailing specialist shop Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing takes us inside one such lair as they work to polish up a lucky (and incredibly wealthy) client's new Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta.
According to Esoteric, its master detailers have been visiting this garage to help maintain the owner's fleet of priceless exotics twice a year for the past four years. The garage itself—if you can even call it a garage at this point—is an 8,500 square foot, spare-no-expense affair, with four floors of beautiful dark wood paneling, a fully-equipped mechanic's station and car lift, an "audiophile-grade stereo system," and a rotating wooden platform that's flush with the floor to show off the 950-horsepower, hybrid V12 LaFerrari Aperta from every angle.
That's not to mention the cars themselves. From what we can see in the video, the unnamed collector has at least seven other Ferraris in addition to the Aperta, including an F40 and an Enzo. He or she also appears to own a Dodge Viper ACR, a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, a Porsche 911 R, and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. Given the... expansive surroundings, it's safe to say there are more hiding in the wings.
Sadly though, the company reports the owner is a collector in every sense of the word—few of these cars are actually driven, and the garage was built to show them off as "works of art." We'd like to point out there's such a thing as interactive art, but then again, it might be for the best considering how much work goes into making the Aperta look like it was rendered in Forza 7.
