Ferrari Online Auction Launched


Ferrari kept its word to launch an online charity auction to ask fans to raise money for the victims of the recent earthquake.

Clients, collectors and Ferrari enthusiasts alike will be able to make their contribution on the www.ferrari.com website which opens with a message from the company’s Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo. The principal items is a 599XX Evo, the extreme, non-homologated sports berlinetta with a reserve of €1.35 million. There are a number of rare pieces from the world of Formula 1, starting with a 2008 V8 engine, with which the Scuderia won its 16th Constructors’ World Championship title, with a reserve of €50,000.

Collectors and enthusiasts can also bid on racing suits, gloves and helmets autographed by Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, an original nose cone from the F60, the F1 car that saw Ferrari celebrate it’s 60th consecutive year in the World Championship, and a Formula 1 racing suit from Giancarlo Fisichella.

“I am sure,” he said, “we can count on the generosity of those close to Ferrari around the world who have always kindly supported this kind of initiative in the past. A terrible earthquake struck our region and the people we know, and together we want to help the families of the victims in this time of need. We are holding an auction of some truly unique and exclusive items for all Ferrari’s friends and enthusiasts to whom I would already like to express my heart-felt thanks.”

The car will be built specifically for this occasion and will have a number of unique features, including a special plaque dedicated by Ferrari’s Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, and the Scuderia Ferrari drivers, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, who will hand the car over to the lucky new owner at the Monza Grand Prix weekend in September.
