No 500 – Ferrari to auction the last LaFerrari to be produced

Those of you who could not lay your hands on the sensational LaFerrai coupe, here’s your final chance! The Italian marquee has specially produced the limited edition’s 500th unit, all for the noble cause of charity. The final and undoubtedly the most exclusive of the LaFerrari coupe will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s (one of the most renowned car auction companies in the world) at Daytona Beach, Florida on the 3rd of the month.

Although the production of the hybrid sports car was limited to 499 units, Ferrari’s chief executive – Sergio Marchionne, had later announced that a special No.500 will be produced and sold for a benevolent cause of reconstructing the towns that were devastated by the fatal earthquakes in Central Italy this year. The luxe car will be auctioned in a weekend-long event that will be held at the Daytona International Speedway in the country. The LaFerrari coupe will don white stripes (inspired by the Aperta), while also proudly displaying the Italian flag up front, right next to the Prancing Horse insignia. Similar to the regular LaFerrari, the No.500 will come with an 800 PS 6.3-liter V12 engine coupled with a 120 kW electric motor.

While the original retail price of the car is $1.4 million, the 500th version is easily expected to fetch an estimated figure of $5 million. The auction by RM Sotheby’s is bound to be one historic event, where Ferrari will change the lives of millions in the areas most affected by the natural disaster. Those of you willing to buy yourself the iconic No.500 LaFerrari, while also doing your bit for the society, this chance is not one to be missed!
