Ferrari originally announced that it would build 499 LaFerraris, but last year, it built a "final" example and sold it at auction, the proceeds going to an Italian earthquake-relief charity. Except, it wasn't the last LaFerrari. That's because Ferrari just sold for the Save the Children charity at this past weekend's . It went for a staggering €8.3 million ($9.98 million USD).

That's a lot of money, but this car, LaFerrari Aperta #210, will be the real final LaFerrari. Unless, of course, Ferrari decides to build another one for some reason. Who knows? Perhaps, Ferrari could take a page out of Pagani's playbook.
LaFerrari Aperta #210 was revealed at a Ferrari 70th anniversary celebration on September 9th. The car is painted in a stunning metallic Rosso Fuoco red, accented with a Bianco Italia white double racing stripe that runs from the nose to the end of the car.
RM Sotheby's estimated that this car would fetch between €3 and €4 million (roughly $3.54 to $4.73 million USD), but considering the last LaFerrari coupe sold for $7 million, it's not surprising to see that it sold for much, much more.
