Ferrari gave the last Enzo, before announcing that its successor will be limited to 499 units. Then came 209 additional open top variants, and the 6.2 earthquakes that killed at least 298 people in Umbria and Marche. Something had to be done.
Following Sergio Marchionne's decision to build another hardtop to help the country, RM Sotheby's managed to sell the 500th LaFerrari for an absolute record price of $7 million. The final final car has a red exterior with a white line running on the hood and rear windshield as well as small Italian flag up front.
That price makes it easily the most expensive LaFerrari ever sold, as the previous record was $5.2 million. It's also the most expensive 21st century car ever auctioned.
Quite recently, the sale of a massive illegal car collection also gave the Italians $55 million to be used wisely thanks to such highlights as a Maserati MC12 that went for a record $3,235,680.
