Ferrari 599XX Evo sold for EUR1.4m image

A one-off Ferrari 599XX Evo has been recently sold for a whopping 1.4 million euros for charity, and the money will go to families devastated by the earthquakes in northern Italy.

Ferrari has announced back in May that a one-off 599XX Evo supercar will be sold during an online auction and all funds raised will be donated to charity in order to help Italian families affected by a series of earthquakes which shook the northern territory last month. The Maranello based company has also said that helmets and racing suits, donated by the Scuderia drivers Fernando Alsonso and Felipe Massa, have also been auctioned, along with a V8 engine which was used on a Formula One car.

“I knew I could count on the big-heartedness of the Ferraristi but they’ve still managed to surprise me once again. I would like to thank all the clients, collectors and enthusiasts that did their bit. Their bids have sent out a message of warmth and solidarity to the people in our region affected by this tragedy”, said the Ferrari chairman, Luca di Montezemolo.

As a quick reminder, the Ferrari 599XX Evo is a high-performance version of the high-performance 599XX, which was shown on the 9th of November, 2011. The model in question is coming with restyled aero and exhaust package, along with electronic upgrades and Pirelli tires. The Ferrari 599XX Evo weighs 35 kg less than the standard 599XX and the model is coming with a minor power boost, 740 HP and 700 Nm of torque.
