True to their words, Ferrari and RM Sotheby’s auctioned off the final, extra, 500th LaFerrari for the benefit of the victims of Italy’s devastating 2016 earthquake. And the one-of-a-kind vehicle performed brilliantly, raising $7 million USD.
The money will be spent by Ferrari, in collaboration with National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund, on the reconstruction efforts that is going on since the August earthquake. That is awesome enough, but as a sort of icing on the cake it also makes this unique LaFerrari the “most valuable 21st Century automobile ever sold at auction.”
Besides being the 500th and the final LaFerrari, this special model is set apart from other model by a number of exclusive features. It comes with a red exterior with a white dream line on the hood and rear windshield. Obviously the car also gets a commemorative plaque inside spelling out its specialness, but it also has a small Italian flag on the hood which serves as a reminder that this is a gift by Ferrari to its home country.
