Ferrari have always set limited production run for their hypercars, and always one less than market demands. Only 399 Ferrari Enzos were produced and only 499 Ferrari LaFerrari and 209 Ferrari LaFerrari Apertas will see production.
However, the brand from Maranello announced at the end of August 2016 that they would make a 500th LaFerrari coupe. The intention of this final LaFerrari was to be sold off at auction to raise funds for the benefit of the people of central Italy who have been affected by the Central Italy earthquake on 24th August 2016.
Last night, the car was auctioned off at Daytona Beach, to a tune of $7 million. The auction was held in conjunction with RM Sotheby’s and in collaboration with the National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund, and the price it achieved represents a national record for the most valuable 21st Century automobile ever sold at auction.
The final LaFerrari boasts a unique livery with a distinct Italian theme: a red interior with a white dream line on the hood and rear windshield. A small Italian flag on the hood also serves as a reminder that this is a gift by Ferrari to its home country.
