The unique 500th production LaFerrari built by the automaker to benefit those affected by this year’s earthquake in central Italy sold for $7 million dollars at auction over the weekend.
The sale, which set a record for the most expensive 21st century automobile ever auctioned, was made in collaboration with the National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund. All proceeds will go towards reconstruction efforts in the areas affected by the earthquake.
Unique from other LaFerraris, the example auctioned is red with a special white ‘spirit line’ decal and a small Italian flag on the hood. Apart from the livery and a special interior plaque and color combination, it remains identical to standard versions of the hypercar and is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine and electric motor for a total output of 949 horsepower.
LaFerrari production was originally limited to 499 units, however the automaker decided to build this final 500th shortly after the earthquake hit in August, killing 299.
