Ferrari to Auction One-Off LaFerrari Aperta for Charity

To mark its 70th anniversary, Ferrari will auction off a one-of- a-kind LaFerrari Aperta to benefit the charity Save the Children.

Set to take place on September 9 at the "Leggenda e Passione" sale organized with auction house RM Sotheby's, the event will be held at Ferrari's Fiorano test track and is expected to be the most important single marque collector's car auction in history.

The LaFerrari Aperta is the limited-edition special series model launched to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the company's founding. The LaFerrari Aperta is the open-top version of the LaFerrari hybrid supercar, "combining extraordinary performance with the unique exhilaration of open-top driving."

For the auction Ferrari has designed a one-of- a-kind livery in metallic Rosso Fuoco with a metallic Bianco Italia double racing stripe on the bonnet and rear.  The interior is covered in black Alcantara and shiny black carbon fiber with red leather inserts on the seats and red stitching.

All proceeds of the auction will be donated to Save the Children for an international program focusing on education. The event is by invitation only, and is part of a three-day program of festivities in Maranello.
