Ferrari’s Chairman, Luca di Montezemolo, is putting his own 599 GTB Fiorano up for auction, in order to try and raise additional funds to sponsor young researchers working on projects dedicated to technological innovation. Not sure what exactly does that mean, but just because we see “sponsor young researchers” we respect Ferrari and its chairman very much. Also, this is the first time Ferrari organizes an official online auction for one of its vehicles.
The car is powered by the 6.0 liter V12 and features red Rosso Monza paint finish, carbon-ceramic brake system with aluminium calipers, 20 inch monolithic wheels and it only has 5,776 km on the odometer. The car has a charcoal leather interior trim with dark grey carpeting and stitching, carbon-fiber inserts in the driver area and the door panels. The auction’s winner will be handed the car in Maranello, together with a certificate of authenticity engraved with di Montezemolo’s signature.
