Ferrari sells cars to race down the road as well as auctions exclusive ones to help victims of natural calamities. The first Ferrari 458 Italia that hit the US shores was auctioned to benefit Haiti relief work. Also the Ferrari 599XX Evo worth $1.6 million was auctioned to help Italy’s earthquake victims. The latest beast from Ferrari’s stable to head for a noble cause is the first F12 Berlinetta scheduled to arrive in North America. The automaker is set to put this car under the hammer in Texas next week. Specially painted in Rosso Berlinetta with choice of black or camel shade upholstery, this exclusive F12 Berlinetta will drive in with special customization options – The buyer may ask for its hood to be signed by F1 drivers and the coupe will be delivered with an official letter recognizing its status as the first in North America. As an added benefit, the new owner may attend the Ferrari Corso Pilota driving course at a location of their choice (Fiorano, Italy or Mont-Tremblant, Canada). The proceeds from auction will be donated directly to the American Red Cross to help the victims of Sandy.
The F12 Berlinetta sports a $300,000 plus price tag but the special Ferrari-helps-Sandy-victims F12 Berlinetta will sell for much more! Also all those who cannot make it to the auction can place their bids by contacting their local Ferrari dealership. Others can support by contributing on special Ferrari-American Red Cross contribution page.
