LaFerrari achieves highest price for a 21st century car
Records broken at RM Sotheby’s auction during Ferrari 70th anniversary celebrations
Proceeds from the world record €8.3 million sale of a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta during the company’s 70th anniversary celebrations in Maranello will be donated to the Save the Children charity, to improve educational facilities in Asia and Africa.
The price achieved for the LaFerrari is not only a record for the model but for any 21st century car, beating the previous record set by a LaFerrari at Daytona, which sold for $7 million to raise funds for earthquake victims in Italy.
The Aperta was built as an addition to the initial 209 LaFerraris produced, and is finished in a unique metallic Rosso Fuoco livery with double metallic Biano Italia racing stripe on its bonnet and tail.
Several other Ferraris also sold at Fiorano, including a California 250 GT SWB for €7.9 million, a 1958 250 GT Cabriolet Series I for €4.7 million and the aluminium-bodied 365 GTB/4 rediscovered in a Japanese hayloft, which changed hands for €1.8 million.
