The money received for the car will go to help the victims of the earthquake in central Italy, according to the official page of the auction house RM Sotheby's in Facebook. Ferrari originally created 499 LaFerraris, which were sold out on pre-orders. The car that went under the hammer was made specifically for the auction and became the five hundredth in a row.
