By setting the number of LaFerrari coupés at 499, Ferrari obviously anticipated a similar promotional action. The commercial production was performed from 2013 to 2015 and the 500th LaFerrari was announced in 2016.
2016 was a terrible year for Italy. The 500th coupé is the subject of a dedicated charity auction at Ferrari's initiative to help the Italian state to reconstruct the areas ravaged by the earthquakes. Its first owner will be the only one to enjoy a brand new LaFerrari without having been registered on the list of clients allowed by Ferrari before they launched the production.
The sale is managed by RM Sotheby's on December 3 in Daytona. Here is the link to the press release.
Two LaFerrari were auctioned in California in August 2016. The first one was a normal unit sold for $ 3.7 million including premium by Bonhams. The second was an interesting Nero Opaco sold for $ 4.7M before fees by Mecum.
SOLD for $ 7M in charity sale
