"But Honey, It Was For Charity" Ferrari Auctions Off Last F430

The Italian stallion is stepping up to the plate (or should I say gate) with its efforts to assist citizens of the Abruzzo region that was devastated during the April 6th earthquake in Italy. Ferrari will auction off the very last F430 to roll off the assembly line. The 490hp F430 will come with a special two-tone paint job using the traditional colors (red and blue) of Aquila, the city hardest hit by the earthquake.

In actuality, only the "rights" to the car will be auctioned off at this Sunday’s annual Ferrari: Leggenda e Passione auction, an event that celebrates the automotive legacy of Enzo Ferrari and the passion of the Ferrari enthusiast. The car itself will not be built until the end of the year.

You can find out more about the May 17 auction by visiting the RM Auctions website.
