The Italian based automaker Ferrari has recently announced that the very first U.S. spec Ferrari F12 Berlinetta has been auctioned for 1.125 million USD.
Ferrari says that the auction had a starting price of 315,888 USD but the bid quickly raised and it ended with Larry Roth, from Long Island, who placed the winning bid at 1,125m USD. The impressive amount raised by the most powerful production Ferrari up to date will be donated to support victims of Hurricane Sandy. An additional 345,000 USD have been donated by “Ferrari dealers, clients and friends”, bringing the total amount to 1.5 million USD. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in question will arrive in Larry Roth’s garage in Q2 2013, after the carmaker will start its deliveries in the United States.
As a quick reminder, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is powered by a 6,262 cc V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 730 HP and it has a peak torque of 690 Nm (509 lb-ft). This is enough to allow the fastest Ferrari ever built to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.5 seconds. Prices for the F12 Berlinetta start at $315,888 in the United States.
