LaFerrari Aperta hypercar is coming out to mark the 70th anniversary of Ferrari this year. The new beast will be the icon of the 70th birthday which seems to symbolize the brand's powerful reign.

Enzo Ferrari first drove the very first car that bore his name on March 12, 1947. The car, named as the Ferrari 125 S, were tested on the hills and mountains around Maranello, Italy. On this 70th anniversary of the brand, the automaker is offering a LaFerrari Aperta hypercar as a special, one-off creation.

Ferrari recently released an anniversary video titled "70 Years of Emotion" which highlighted the history of the company. It begins with a scene at the 1947 Ferrari workshop with Enzo Ferrari adoring his creation, the old red 125 S. The scene has the sepia effects to create a nostalgic feel of the 1947 setting.

The first Ferrari car comes out of the workshop, passing through the gates on Via Abetone Inferiore. As the old 125 S travels the long and winding road, the sepia effect also fades away, then going into the future, the old125 S changes into the latest black LaFerrari Aperta.

The video then focused on highlighting the new hypercar as it speeds up on the road. The clip then continues to show off the exquisite beauty while speeding up to the modern city.

Towards the end of the video, the new LaFerrari Aperta can be spotted going back to the Ferrari workshop where the old 125 S came out at the beginning of the clip. Then the clip ends with the old red 125 S parked side-by-side with the new LaFerrari Aperta in front of the gate on Via Abetone Inferiore.

The new LaFerrari Aperta offers a hybrid 6.3-liter V-12 engine that can deliver 949 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, unlike the old 125 S which delivered only 118 hp from its 1.5-liter V-12 engine. The new hybrid also sports a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, MotorTrend reported.
