You’re currently looking at the most expensive car listed on Autotrader: a 2014 LaFerrari — with delivery miles — for $4.2 million, offered by Ferrari of Washington in Northern Virginia. Let’s examine this in a little more depth, shall we?
To start, let’s cover exactly what the LaFerrari is, even though virtually everyone reading this surely already knows all about it. It’s Ferrari’s latest-and-greatest supercar, a V12-powered exotic with absurd power numbers (788 hp for the gas engine alone; 949 total when you combine the electric motor), ridiculous performance figures (zero to 60 in 2.3 seconds; top speed of 220 mph), and insane styling that even manages to outmuscle the designs of Ferrari’s previous ultra-exotics.

More importantly, the LaFerrari is an ultra-low-volume car, as Ferrari claims they built just 500 units for the entire world. And that’s an important fact, because it brings us to our next point: The original MSRP of the LaFerrari was roughly $1.4 million.
So how did this one wind up with a $4.2 million asking price?
Well, like I said, there are only 500 of these in the entire world — and much, much fewer than 500 with two crucial details: the classic Ferrari specifications (red exterior, standard silver wheels) and incredibly low mileage. Most LaFerraris are getting driven, but this one has covered just 126 miles in its short life — and between that figure and the classic colors, this might be one of the most collectible LaFerrari models in existence. After all, if you weren’t one of the lucky 500 to get one when it was new, this might just be the closest you’ll come.
Does that mean it’s worth $4.2 million? Considering the last car I bought cost me $7,500, I’m reserving my judgement. This one is out of my league. Find a 2012 Make Model for sale
