LaFerrariEager LaFerrari buyers are willingly paying £1 million more than the car’s £1.2 million list price in order to secure themselves one of the 499-strong production run.

Oracle Finance has revealed the staggering premiums in analysis of the hypercar and supercar market – and says that buyers are so desperate to own a LaFerrari, they’re helping it move well clear of its rivals from McLaren and Porsche.

“It’s a buying frenzy out there at the moment for Ferraris and nothing demonstrates that like the million-pound premiums we’re seeing for the LaFerrari,” said Oracle Finance managing director Peter Brook.

“When you look at the prices of the Enzo, the exclusive hypercar that went before it, that has doubled in recent years from the £400,000 list price to close to £1m now.

“But despite that rise even we were shocked at the premium buyers are prepared to pay for the LaFerrari.”

LaFerrari: beating the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder

It means the premium for the LaFerrari eases well clear of that Oracle Finance reports for the McLaren P1 (£300,000) and the Porsche 918 Spyder (£200,000). Even so, the premiums for the Porsche have impressed Oracle.

Brook added: “We weren’t too surprised the new breed of hypercars were commanding premiums, but the Porsche has taken everyone by surprise. The speed of deliveries is slow which means buyers are prepared to pay over the odds to get into one now.”

The firm also reports buyers are willing to pay £30,000 over odds to get into a Lamborghini Huracan – and they’re even happy to pay £6000 over list price to secure one of the first Porsche Macan!
