When the order books originally opened for the Ferrari LaFerrari, only loyal customers were even considered by the Italian firm with some reports suggesting each prospective owner must have a Ferrari collection of at least 5 cars. As a result, only the most hardcore and dedicated Ferrari fans could order the LaFerrari brand new from the factory.
One such customer was Albert Obrist who recently took delivering of his LaFerrari finished in a shade of silver dubbed Grigio Ferro. Obrist is a well-known Ferrari collector has purchased his first car from the famous automaker back in 1962 with a Ferrari 250 GT 2+2. Other notable cars in his collection include the Ferrari 250 TR59 which won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1959, a race winning 315 S from the 1957 Mille Miglia as well as the Ferrari 375 MM which took victory at the 1953 24 Hours of Spa.

As a reminder, the 2014 LaFerrari receives a 6.3-litre V12 which is connected to an electric motor similar to the system on the McLaren P1. LaFerrari’s V12 has an output of 789 hp at 9000 rpm and 700 Nm at 7000 rpm while its electric motor has a maximum output of 161 hp and 270 Nm of torque. That delivers a total combined power output of 950 hp, allowing the new Ferrari Enzo to do 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, 0-300 km/h in 15 seconds and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.
