Today on Drive Wire Ferrari makes an exception and produces one more LaFerrari for a good cause.

Rather than keeping the LaFerrari production number at 499, Ferarri has decided to auction off a bespoke LeFerrari to aid the victims of the central Italy earthquakes. With over 300 dead and 100,000 homeless, Ferrari recognizes the people of Italy need their help.

RM Sotheby’s Chairman & CEO Rob Myers said, “The earthquakes which have struck Central Italy this year devastated the lives of thousands of people, and the money raised by the sale of this LaFerrari could not be put to a better use,”

The one-off Ferrari will have custom livery, a unique interior and plenty of other goodies signifying its importance and rarity.

Just to be clear, the LaFerrari will have all the same mechanical features as all the other Ferraris like the monsterous 949 horsepower hybrid engine.

The big event will be hosted by RM Sotheby’s and will take place at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Daytona Beach this Saturday, December 3rd.
