Ferrari will auction off a LaFerrari for Italian earthquake relief
It’s no surprise that Ferrari is launching an initiative to help victims of this year’s two major central Italian earthquakes. This weekend, at the FerrariFinaliModinalievent at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, Ferrari will auction off a bespoke LaFerrari with the help of RM Sotheby’s and the National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund. All proceeds from the auction will go to the reconstruction efforts in central Italy following August’s magnitude 6.2 quake and the string of quakes that hit late last month.
Ferrari will auction off the last LaFerrarisupercar ever made. Only 499 coupes were planned, but Ferrari decided to make one more, as a gift to its home country. Of course, this isn’t just a LaFerrari – the one set for the auction block features discreet white graphics, finished off with an Italian flag on the nose. The interior gets similar unique touches, plus a plaque commemorating just how special this LaFerrari really is. Rob Myers, CEO and chairman of RM Sotheby’s, named this auction a historic event, as the generosity of FerrariSpA will change lives in the areas most affected by the natural disaster.
