Remember when Ferrari decided to auction off the first F12berlinetta in the U.S. as part of its contribution to relief efforts stemming from Hurricane Sandy?

Long Island resident Larry Roth won that auction, paying $1.125 million for the Italian supercar. It might have been way more than the $315,888 retail price of the F12berlinetta, but since it was for a good cause, we don’t think Roth had any problem opening up his checkbook.

After months of waiting, Roth’s generosity and patience has finally paid off after he took delivery of the first production F12berlinetta in the U.S. Good things come to those who wait and we assume that Roth is pretty thrilled to finally have the supercar in his hands.

He deserves it too after the tremendous bid he put up to win the auction. We just hope he takes real good care of it seeing as he paid quite a premium to own it.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I love the shiny and glossy red paint of the car. Paying $1.125 million for the Italian super car may be too much but it is a good because it is for a good cause. And I hope that many people will be able to benefit from that generosity.
