Ferrari will auction the first U.S.-spec F12 Berlinetta and all earnings will go to the American Red Cross.
The money will be used to support relief efforts after the devastating Hurricane Sandy. This auction is scheduled for November 17 at 9 PM Eastern time at the U.S. F1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. Those that can’t participate at the event can contact Ferrari dealers to find out how they can place a bid.
As a reminder, at the heart of Ferrari’s most powerful road-going car is a V12 6.2-liter engine that generates 730 hp (544 kW) and 509 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. Mated to a dual-clutch gearbox, it hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds and reaches 211 mph (340 km/h).
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta will be available in the United States in Q2 2013 with a starting price of $315,888.
