In May the world was shocked when a 6.0 magnitude earthquake displaced more than 12,000 people, destroying towns and sadly killing 16 people in Northern Italy. As the dust began to clear and clean up crews searched for survivors an unlikely hero made the decision to help their fellow Italians.

Ferrari had amassed a collection of their finest automobilia and even a 599XXEVO to auction off and donate the proceeds to the victims of the earthquake. Raising over 2.2 million dollars from Ferrari collectors and enthusiasts across the globe. The 599XXEVO was the highlight of the event, being sold to an American bidder for over 1.7 million dollars. The hypercar Ferrari is accompanied by a plaque signed by Chairman Luca di Montezemolo and the two Scuderia drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, who will also be personally delivering the vehicle to it’s new owner.

Other auction items included an F60 nose-cone (sold for $28,000 also bound for the U.S.), an engine from the F2008 Formula One Race Car ($100,591 making Great Britain its home), even both Scuderia F1 drivers put their helmets on the block along with Giancarlo Fisichella's racing suit.

Throughout the event participants were in the giving spirit, at some points even donating when items had already sold or when no items were available at all. Proving that no matter the income or the car collection even in times of tragedy everyone can and will help.
