All proceeds go to the American Red Cross

Ferrari is trying to do its part to help raise money for the relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Ferrari often auctrions off vehicles and donates all the proceeds to charity and that is exactly what the Italian automaker is doing. Ferrari is offering people with enough money to afford the fantastic F12berlinetta the chance to own the first one United States.

The car will be auctioned off at the Formula One United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas this weekend. The car features a V12 engine that is naturally aspirated and puts out 740CV at 8250 RPM. The car also produces maximum torque of 690 nm, with 80% of that number available at 2500 RPM.

The vehicle will certainly not sell for a bargain price. The standard MSRP for the vehicle is $315,888. Ferrari's previous vehicles have auctioned for well over there standard MSRP. Those who don't win the auction and want one of these fantastic cars will have to wait until the second quarter of 2013 when general availability begins.
