Yes, we know that Ferrari LaFerrari Coupe is a limited edition of just 499 units. But a while back Ferrari Chairman and CEO, Sergio Marchionne, ordered the creation of an additional unit to be auctioned for charity as a gift to Italy. Now the time has come for the final LaFezza to cross the auction block and raise a considerable sum of money for the victims of the earthquake that shook Central Italy in August.
And money it will raise when it goes under the hammer on December 3 during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali weekend at the Daytona International Speedway, Florida, not just because it is yet another LaFerrari from factory and the last one ever, but also because this one also comes with a one-of-a-kind livery and interior, designed as a tribute to Italy, with a special plaque to commemorate the occasion. This is not the first time Ferrari has built a special model to help their fellow countrymen, and chances are this one too will be bought for a huge amount by some high-profile billionaire.
“It is an honor for RM Sotheby’s to be entrusted with the sale of this important car and to help raise significant funds for a desperate cause,” says Rob Myers, CEO and Chairman of RM Sotheby’s. “The earthquakes which have struck Central Italy this year devastated the lives of thousands of people, and the money raised by the sale of this LaFerrari could not be put to a better use. The auction will be an historic event, and the generosity of Ferrari SpA will change lives in the areas most affected by the natural disaster.”
