The last Ferrari F430 to go to action and help the Abruzzo earthquake victims |

Ferrari has announced that the last F430 to leave the production line, later this year, will be a special edition dedicated to the Abruzzo region in Italy, devasted by the earthquake on April 6th which killed more than 90 people and left tens of thousands without a home. The car will be unveiled at the RM Auction this coming Sunday and it will go to auction, with all the proceeds going to the Abruzzo local authorities, to help reconstruct the region. The special F430 will feature a special two-tone paint finish which pays a tribute to the traditional colors of Aquila, the city most devastated. The auction winner will be invited to Maranello to choose the final specs for the car and will also get a certificate signed by Ferrari’s boss, Luca di Montezemolo, with a personalised dedication plate.

I don’t know about you, but I appreciate Ferrari a lot for what they’re doing here. It’s sad to see the F430 (one of company’s most successful cars ever) production coming to an end, but the fact that they chose to help the victims of the earthquake makes the car’s ending very, very glorious. And we respect Ferrari a lot for that, especially considering the auction will probably bring in houndreds of thousands for the needy!
