Ferrari Raises $1.125 Million By Selling F12 at Sandy Relief Auction

The first ever F12 Berlinetta in the U.S. was auctioned off by Ferrari to help Hurricane Sandy victims on Saturday November 17th. Held during the 2012 U.S. Forumla 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, this charity auction raied a total of $1.5 million for the American Red Cross. Sold for $1.125 million, the F12 went for nearly four times more than the actual price of the car. However, the gentleman who bought the car was perfectly happy about it because he contributed to a good cause while getting himself an awesome car.

Being the replacement for the Ferrari 599, the F12 has a front-engined V12 super GT that can be used every day and everywhere. With one of the best sorted chassis in the world and 750  horsepower, the F12 seems to be as good as cars can get. Watch the video below to see the look on the winners face when he realizes he’s won the F12.
