Ferrari 599XX auction a to help earthquake victims in Italy

Last week, the Italian people are shocked by the earthquake of 5.1 magnitude on the Richter scale struck the town of Emilia Romagna (north of the Alpine country) and the neighboring towns. The earthquake has had several aftershocks in recent days, and the amount of life recovered and rises to 26. As if this were not enough, the material damage caused to the region are very high, that only on the first day were estimated at more than 5,000 million euros.

The economic situation in Italy is very delicate, so the government has gone up two cents the price of gasoline to raise money to help rebuild the region. Also related to gasoline, is another attempt to raise funds for this tragedy, but this time more altruistic and smaller scale. Ferrari president just appeared in a video on YouTube announcing that they will auction a unit of the Ferrari 599XX through the network to help rebuild the region bolognese.

For days it was known they were going to do this to help their countrymen, but so far there had been no public appearance Luca Cordero di Montezemolo to announce this fact. The selected drive has been signed both by the Montezemolo as the official Formula 1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. The brand has established a reserve price of 1.35 million euros, but will probably exceed that figure largely as a unit is very unique to this veritable laboratory on wheels.

The car is undoubtedly the main attraction of this auction, but not the only property to be sold to raise funds. They have also put up for auction one of the engines used by the cars of Formula 1 season 2008 (the Ferrari F2008), when Felipe Massa lost the title for F1 Lewis Hamilton thanks to that legendary overtaking in the last corner. Finally, the third batch includes Alonso and Massa helmet signed by them.

In this way, Ferrari will contribute its particular grain of sand to try to fix as soon as the great tragedy that the earthquake has caused in the Italian country. We must take into account the large effort required for the signing of the Ferrari 599XX Maranello auction, since it is an exclusive made ​​in a very limited series that was only offered to select buyers of the brand, and the use and maintenance is subject to special rules by Ferrari.
