500th LaFerrari is being created.

500th LaFerrari to help the victims of recent Italian earthquake

The Ferrari LaFerrari featured a 499-unit production run which is being increased to 500 units. The money made from the sale of the final car going to the victims of the recent Italian earthquake which occurred just a few days ago.

The 950bhp LaFerrari finished its production run in 2015, but one extra model is being made to be sold at auction. With such a small production number, it’s no surprise that examples which make it onto the used market carry a heavy premium over the car’s £1.15 million price.

Used LaFerrari currently sell for between £2.5m and £3m with some even reaching above £4m, although it’s likely that the car value of the 500th may exceed this considerably.

A source at Ferrari said that the original demand for LaFerrari was more than double the supply, and this is the last opportunity for a buyer to own a LaFerrari from new which will create a lot of opportunities for the people who have enough money to buy it new and own something that will be for a good cause but also to make themselves feel special as the LaFerrari will most likely feature some sort of small detail change in the design to signify that it is a special, final edition.

The drop-top LaFerrari, named Aperta, will be revealed at the Paris motor show in a few weeks, but the 500th LaFerrari will be the very last coupé version built.

The last LaFerrari is being built to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in central Italy, which struck on 24th August and claimed the lives of hundreds while leaving thousands more homeless.

Each standard LaFerrari carries a plaque bearing the words ‘Limited edition [car number]/499’, or the car’s number in the production run, but a source at Ferrari indicated that the 500th example may carry a plaque demonstrating its special status as the very last car, sold to help the victims of the earthquake.

Ferrari have previous experience with helping provide auctions for charities and previously auctioned an Enzo after the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004. That car carried a similar plaque, so it’s likely that this LaFerrari will be the same. The winning bidder may also get to choose the colour and spec of the car; however, nothing is for certain at this point.
