The Last LaFerrari Ever Built Sold for Record-Setting Price

The last LaFerrari ever built has gained itself a second title, that of most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction. 

Ferrari managed to sell the car for $7 million this past weekend at auction, in support of the National Italian American Foundation Earthquake Relief Fund, which is helping to rebuild an area in central Italy that was heavily destroyed during a quake last year.

The car was sold by RM Sotheby’s during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali at Daytona International Speedway. This car is made more special considering its history, as it was never supposed to exist. Ferrari only planned to build 499 LaFerraris, but this 500th unit was put together specifically to help the earthquake relief.

The 949-horsepower hypercar also has a little custom flair with a classic red paint job finished with white striping and an Italian flag painted on the nose.

Brand new, Ferrari sold the LaFerrari for about $1.5 million.
