Fans hoping to score Sammy Hagar’s rare Ferrari supercar at auction this weekend will now have to wait until the fall.
The original high-voltage battery in the rock legend’s 2015 LaFerrari was found to be near the end of its lifespan during a final inspection of the car, Hagar and automotive auctioneer Barrett-Jackson said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“The decision to hold the car back to properly replace the high voltage battery with a new replacement directly from Ferrari was made in the interest of delivering the one-of-a-kind vehicle in pristine condition,” the statement explained.

Hagar called the LaFerrari a “true work of art and a totally explosive driving experience,” adding, “We wanted to make sure its next owner had a truly immaculate supercar so we are moving it to the October auction.”
Barrett-Jackson’s newly announced fall auction will be held Oct. 10-13 at WestWorld of Scottsdale, the same location as this month’s event in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“Having the brand-new factory replacement battery installed was the right decision for all involved,” Craig Jackson, Barrett-Jackson chairman and CEO, said.
“We are very excited about the announcement of our Fall Auction, and to have Sammy’s LaFerrari as the new event’s first consignment is a fantastic start to what will surely be an epic Barrett-Jackson experience.”
The LaFerrari, which can reach 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, cost $1.4 million in 2015, but Barrett-Jackson is hoping to fetch up to $5 million because of Hagar’s celebrity status, according to USA Today.
While it won’t be for sale this weekend, the LaFerrari will be on display in the auction hall.
