Ferrari steps up for Italy’s earthquake victims

One of the most iconic Italian brands in the world – Ferrari – is putting its own talent at the benefit of the victims of the recent Italy’s earthquake.

Ferrari will produce a 500th LaFerrari with the sole intention of benefitting the earthquake victims in Central Italy. The announcement was made by chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne during the bilateral summit between the Italian and German governments, that took place a few weeks ago at the Cavallino Rampante’s headquarters.

LaFerrari was originally planned to be produced only in 499 specimens. But a 500th hybrid supercar will be purposefully created to support the victims of the 6.2-magnitude earthquake that shook Central Italy on August 24th, killing almost 300 people.

The 500th LaFerrari will be sold at auction, even though the brand did not announce when the car will be built.

LaFerrari is a magnificent luxury car, sporting 949 horsepower. It debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with a starting tag price of 1.3 million dollars. Its convertible variant is also currently sold out. The official production of LaFerrari ended in 2015.
