Last March, Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff confirmed that star driver Lewis Hamilton, the current Formula One World Champion, had purchased a Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] LaFerrari. We’ve seen Hamilton post photos of a number of his cars on social media, though—likely due to contractual requirements—we haven’t seen him post any photos of the LaFerrari (the same is true for a McLaren P1 he owns).
Well, we now have our first look at Hamilton’s LaFerrari thanks to this video from YouTube channel effspot (via GT Spirit). The video features Hamilton driving around Hollywood in the car, with singer Justin Bieber in the passenger seat. The pair stops by the trendy BOA Steakhouse restaurant on Sunset Boulevard where we briefly see Hamilton greeting some friends.
What’s most interesting is the specification of Hamilton’s car. He’s gone for a unique red finish as well as a matching red diffuser. The wheels are finished in black and have a red lip. There are also some red accents in the cabin as seen in the photo below of Justin Bieber standing next to the car, posted up on the singer’s Instagram account.
Some of the other cars Hamilton has purchased in the recent past include the aforementioned McLaren P1 plus a Pagani Zonda 760, 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and 1966 Shelby Cobra 427. Pretty cool collection if you ask us.
