After waiting nearly a year, legendary rocker Sammy Hagar has finally gotten the keys to his brand new, custom-made $1.4 million Ferrari LaFerrari that he custom-ordered in white with black and beige accents while touring the Maranello factory for the first time.
Only 499 units of the LaFerrari — which boasts a whopping 950 horsepower — are being made every ten years.
Hagar said: “The car looked better than I ever imagined when I saw it. My anticipation to drive it was driving me crazy.
“When I finally took possession of the car today after all the red tape involved in a special car like this, [my wife] Kari and I put 100 miles on it. And what a crazy fun hundred miles it was! The car is much faster than I ever imagined. It sounds like a monster of some kind. It gets way more attention than I want. I’m getting used to it slowly before I really try to push I push it to my limit, which is way below the car’s limit, I’m sure of that after today!
“I feel really special getting in and out of that car. I just want to look at it sometimes. I’m very close to being speechless. After chasing that Ferrari for a year finally taking possession, I’m humbled.”
A video report from California ABC affiliate 7 News can be seen below.
Ferrari‘s first gasoline-electric hybrid model, LaFerrari has been described as “the most powerful street-legal Ferrari ever built.”
Three days after the car’s debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, more than 1,000 people had put in requests to purchase the vehicle.
Ferrari said LaFerrari will accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in less than 7 seconds.
