New Ferrari hypercar will be the descendant of the LaFerrari, directly competing with the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Since its official launch in 2013, the LaFerrari has become such a luxury marque that anyone who wants to possess it has to pay at least double its original 7-digit price. Particularly, Ferrari only produced 500 units of LaFerrari.
