Ferrari is to build a 500th example of its LaFerrari supercar, to help the victims of the Italian earthquake.

The single addition to the 499-unit production run is to be auctioned, with the proceeds from the sale going to aid those affected by the earthquake that hit central Italy on 24th August, killing hundreds of people and leaving thousands homeless.

Ferrari built what was to be the 499th and last example of the LaFerrari in December 2015, each sold for £1.15 million. Examples on the used market have attracted prices of up to £3m and it is thought that the price for the very last example could go significantly higher.

Ferrari chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne announced the plan during a summit meeting held between the Italian and German governments at Ferrari’s Modena headquarters.

   

Demand for the LaFerrari is believed to have been double the number made, but those who cannot secure the 500th example may already have missed out on its successor.

At the Paris Motor Show on 29th September Ferrari will unveil a convertible version of the car, using the same hybrid powertrain as the coupe. This comprises a 6.3-litre V12 engine of 800hp and a 120kW electric system of 163hp, the combined output being 963hp, with 900Nm of torque.

Ferrari is yet to announce how many examples it will build of the new car, which it is believed will take the name Aperta. But the Italian brand has announced that all available cars have been sold, following a special preview event for potential clients.
