Ferrari Is Auctioning A Brand New F12 For Hurricane Sandy ReliefS

We give Ferrari a pretty hard time around these parts for a lot of the things they do. But one place where we cannot fault them is their willingness to help out in cases of disaster.

After the massive Italian earthquake earlier this year, they auctioned off a 599XX evo to benefit the areas impacted by the destructive earthquake. Now, they're doing the same with the first F12berlinetta in the United States.

The car will be auctioned next week in Austin, TX to coincide with the first United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas. The car has a starting price north of $300,000, but as with any charity auction, we expect this F12 to fetch far more than the list price.

And that's a good thing if the profits will help people that have been deeply effected by that awful hurricane. Kudos to Ferrari.
