Sure you remember the tragedy that occurred the August 24 in the center zone of Italy. A earthquake of magnitude 6 shook the country causing the death of some 300 people, leaving a large number of wounded, missing, and some villages totally destroyed by the earthquake. A tragedy that the people of Italy, and especially the locations of the center of the country, never forget.
A few days later, Sergio Marchionne, Chairman of Ferrari, stating that the brand would contribute their “grain of sand” to help people and families affected economically. The best way to do this for the company from Maranello was, as here we reported, increasing the production of the Ferrari LaFerrari. This hiperdeportivo was planned for a very limited production of only 499 units in its variant of body closed. Ferrari has already produced the unit number 500 that had been promised and will be auctioned off next Saturday.
The unit number 500 will find its new owner at an auction organized by RM Sothebys in Daytona Beach, Florida. The president of the company in charge of the auction stated that for them it was an honor to be in charge of put on sale this important car, and thus help to raise funds for the cause, the earthquake that hit the centre of Italy.
In this occasion you have not offered estimates of what the value could reach this Ferrari LaFerrari, although safety will be the drive for more has been paid since the beginning of its commercialization. We remind you that the Ferrari LaFerrari is powered by a hybrid system composed by a V12 engine of a gasoline and an electric motor. On the whole, the power achieved is of 963 CV, while the torque rises to 700 Nm. These data will allow to pass 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds.
This is the last chance for any client of a new Ferrari LaFerrari. The 499 units above have already been sold and, a few months ago, already sold one of them for more than 4 million in the second-hand market; so that this probably around 5 million euros.
