Mon, 19 Nov 2012

The first Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in the United States was sold on Saturday at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas for $1.125 million. The auction benefited Hurricane Sandy victims.

Bidding started at $315,888 and the price rose quickly with bids coming in from live bidders and by phone. The winner was Larry Roth from Long Island, N.Y. According to Ferrari, company clients, dealers and friends donated an additional $345,000.

Ferrari will deliver the Berlinetta in the second quarter of 2013, along with the rest of pre-ordered U.S.-bound F12s. The F12 is the company's fastest road-going car ever, using a 6.3-liter V12 engine making 731 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
