6,6 million euros (5.750.000 pounds) for the last LaFerrari
The 500th Ferrari LaFerrari was sold by auction for 7 million dollars (about 6,6 million euros, 5,7 million pounds), five times more than the supersport’s base price.
LaFerrari’s initial production was limited to 499 units, but Ferrari’s boss, Sergio Marchione, announced the production of a special unit to help the victims of the earthquake that affected Central Italy on August 24, responsible for 293 deaths.
In just 10 minutes, the Italian supersport surpassed all expectations and was auctioned by million 7 million dollars, about 6.600.000 euros (5.750.000 pounds), making it the most expensive LaFerrari ever sold at auction and the most expensive car produced in the 21st century.
Compared to the remaining 499 LaFerrari, the #500 stands out due to its Italian tricolour flag at the front as well as an identifying plaque in the interior, not to mention the white lines running across its body.
“It is an honour for RM Sotheby’s to be entrusted with the sale of this important cart and to help raise significant funds for this cause. The earthquake that has struck Central Italy this year devastated the lives of thousands of people and the money raised by the sale of the 500th and the last LaFerrari could not be put to better use”, the CEO of the auctioneer responsible for this sale has said.
