Footage of the first LaFerrari In Malaysia was captured outside a football stadium right after a match. According to witnesses, “it caused a stir.”
Earlier last year The Super Car Kids spotted a purple LaFerrari exiting a test track in Maranello, Italy after final testing. Thanks to our motoring friends in Malaysia, according to Paul Tan on their post earlier this Thursday, it looks like that particular LaFerrari is owned by Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim. Thankfully the country of Malaysia has abbreviated that name to TMJ. As president of the Johor Football Association, TMJ’s job includes watching over a couple of matches. And what better way to roll up to a match than in this one-of-kind hypercar. Check out exclusive footage of this purple LaFerrari fit for a prince below.
According to Johor Southern Tiger’s official Facebook page, it looks like they rolled out the red (err…blue) carpet for the young prince as he made his way into the stadium.

The video doesn’t show much except the quiet revving of that monstrous N/A V12 from the rear boot lid. We do catch a glimpse of a Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG Coupe also parked out front that supposedly belongs to the crown prince’s brother.
We’re not all familiar with this TMJ fellow, but he’s certainly got exquisite taste in cars and a unique taste when it comes to personalization. Other than Jay Kay’s bright green LaFerrari, this deep metallic purple LaFerrari certainly goes against the grain of what high-performance Ferrari’s usually are. We’ve seen gold wrapped LaFerraris and dozens in Ferrari Red, but never something in this shade of the palette.
It’s a refreshing change from the norm and we’re glad to see his highness using it for what it was intended for, transportation. We hope he might take give it a good romp on the Sepang International Circuit, home of the Malaysia Grand Prix.
