“Here at Ferrari, we have experienced and seen the devastation that Hurricane Sandy has caused in the affected area firsthand. We want to use our event next week at Formula One in Austin to give back to our local community by auctioning the F12 Berlinetta.”

-Marco Mattiacci, chief executive and president of Ferrari North America

 

 

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Ferrari NA will be helping Hurricane Sandy victims — they are going to auction off the very first F12 Berlinetta to be sold in American.

The base price of Ferrari’s halo model is about $315,000, and given what history has shown us about 001 cars, this version should sell at caught a premium. I’m guessing between 1 and 2 million dollars.

The auction will be this Saturday night 9 p.m. EST. at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Place your bids directly at the auction, or through your local Ferrari dealership.

If you are unfamiliar with the F12, its has a 731-hp V12, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and weighs 150 pounds less than the car it replaced, the Ferrari 599. It is both pretty and a badass on the road or track.

Do your part to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. I’ll start the bidding at $750k . . .
