What better setting than the Grand Palais in Paris for LaFerrari, named the queen of cars by its Italian automaker, to make its debut on French soil?

The new special limited edition car from Maranello was a magnet during its premiere April 22, the opening day of the Tour Auto Optic 2000.

Around 250 special interest cars are taking part in the event which wends its way through the streets of France until April 27 and they were all at the Grand Palais to celebrate the LaFerrari.

Amongst them some older supercars that are part of the prancing horse history.

Enrico Galliera, Ferrariā€™s Commercial and Marketing Director, pulled the wraps off the first hybrid car produced in Maranello, which was also the star attraction at a gala cocktail held the same evening for over four hundred customers.

The automaker describes its LaFerrari as the best example of technology, exclusivity and passion ever built by Ferrari.
