First Ferrari F12berlinetta in North America to be Auctioned off for Sandy Relief
Citizens and companies alike seem to be doing all they can in order to relieve those affected by superstorm Sandy, carmakers included. Ford, General Motors, Toyota and Fisker are just a few generous brands who have been helping out with the relief effort by donating where and when they can. Now, Italian giant Ferrari will also be throwing their name into the hat of generous donations through the auction of the very first F12berlinetta in North America. On Saturday, November 17th, at an F1 based event in Austin, Texas, Ferrari will be auctioning off the very first 2013, 730-hp F12berlinetta to jump ship and land on U.S. soil. All the proceeds of this specialty auction going towards the American Red Cross for further assistance in the affected northeast.
“Let’s join together in showing the strength of our community and what the Ferrari brand is really made of!!” said North American president and CEO Marco Mattiacci in the e-mail, “Let’s win this race together!” This one of a kind Ferrari (literally), will also come with available options like a hood signed by F1 drivers, a special dedication plate and even a Ferrari Corso Pilota driving course at the Fiorano track in Italy or Mont-Tremblant in Canada. As we can’t help but support such a noble cause, and our friends and colleagues to the Northeast, head over to americanredcross.org/ferrari to learn more about the event.
