The highly priced LaFerrari was one of the three painted in a shade called Nero DS Opaco, or for the layman, satin black. It definitely makes it stand out from usual shades of red. Even the wheels get a gloss black finish along with red brake calipers.

The hypercar has only clocked 211 miles (339 kilometers) which technically makes it brand new. The estimate pre-auction price came down to $3.9 million but the final bid came close to $4.5 million, this insane auction price is a clear indication that the LaFerrari is in high demand.
