You might remember about the unique Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano we reported on last month. The model, based on a customized edition of the 599 for the Chinese market, was finished by renown Chinese artist Lu Hao in a special pattern from the Ge Kiln porcelain from China’s Song Dynasty.
You would think that people would prefer the normal Rosso Fuoco red paint job, but it seems that at least one anonymous bidder considered paying €1.2 million (or $1.8 million) to be a great deal, and got the unique model at a special Gala organized by Ferrari in Beijing.
The money will be put to good use, as it will help young Chinese engineers and students from Tsinghua University’s Department of Automotive Engineering to study at Italy’s Politecnico di Milano University, and, if they’re lucky, land internship jobs at Ferrari’s Maranello production plant.
Overall, it’s nice to see that Ferrari is doing great things for the community even though it is trying to get more popularity from the Asian country, which is set to buy more models than many other countries around the world in the following years.
