The huge earthquake that hit Northern Italy in May has left many people homeless and broken hearted. As they continue to rebuild their lives, they also continue to need a lot of support, especially financially. For this reason, Ferrari decided to offer some really incredible items for auction, and raise money for this very specific cause.
The iconic Italian company sold an impressive collection of special items, among which a stunning Ferrari 599XX Evo. Connoisseurs surely know that this is a very limited series car, and that the model is only available for Ferrari Corse Clienti. This particular example is a one-off, being the only 599XX Evo sold to a private customer.
The buyer remained anonymous, but we do know that he is from America, and that he paid over €1.4 million ($1.7 million) for the car. The vehicle also features a commemorative plaque that bears the signatures of Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo, and F1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. The two famous drivers will be present when the outstanding car will be delivered to its new (and clearly very happy) owner, at the 2012 Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
Other items sold at the auctions were an engine from the F2008 (€80,000), helmets worn by the current Scuderia drivers, and a nose cone from the F60 F1 race car (€23,000).
