A few weeks ago, we reported that Ferrari will auction off a 599XX Evo with all the proceeds being used to help the victims of the recent Italian earthquake. Now, the company has announced the results of the online auction: an impressive 1.8 million euro ($2.28 million) were raised, with 1.4 million euro ($1.77 million) coming from the sale of the 599XX.
Ferrari hasn’t announced who the lucky client that acquired this impressive model was, but they did announce that it was an American client. The model will come with a plaque signed by Chairman Luca di Montezemolo and Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.
"A pole position result: I knew I could count on the big-heartedness of the Ferraristi but they’ve still managed to surprise me once again," declared Ferrari Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo. "I would like to thank all the clients, collectors and enthusiasts that did their bit. Their bids have sent out a message of warmth and solidarity to the people in our region affected by this tragedy."
