Ferrari auctions F12berlinetta for victims Sandy
The Ferrari F12berlinetta comes to the rescue for the victims of hurricane Sandy. One of these hyper cars, worth 250.000 euros (318.000 dollars or 200.000 pounds), will be auctioned on the 17th of November. And it is not just some F12berlinetta, but the first one to reach the American market. A model, thus, which will be able to attract quite a few American Ferrari-enthusiasts. The income of this auction will go to the American Red Cross. Everyone will know about it, too, as Ferrari chose the F1-stage in Texan Austin to deliver the car to its buyer and of course the money to the Red Cross. It is not the first time that Ferrari does these kinds of auctions. Back in 2011, an FF was brought to the hammer for the benefit of the victims of the Tsunami in Japan and earlier this year there was an online auctioning of a 599XX Evo for those who had to endure the earthquakes in Italy. Both cars were sold for more than one million euros.
In the meantime, this ‘über-GT’ from Italy is heavily praised by the media. The British magazine Evo gave it the ‘Engine of the Year’-award (not to be confused with the Global Engine of the Year Award) for its 6.3 V12 and the German Auto Bild rewarded the car with ‘Das Goldene Lenkrad’.
