Car sells for about three times sticker price

Over the weekend during the inaugural running of the Grand Prix of America in Austin, Texas Ferrari auction off a vehicle with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross. The vehicle Ferrari auctioned off was the first F12berlinetta in the United States. The vehicle will carry an MSRP of over $315,000 when it's officially available next year.

The car that Ferrari auctioned off for charity sold for $1,125,000, a significant premium over the sticker price. Ferrari raised additional funds during the weekend from donations bringing the total donated to the American Red Cross to $1.5 million.

A V12 engine that produces well over 700 hp powers The Ferrari auctioned off. The car sends that power to the road through a paddle-shifted dual clutch transmission. That massive 12-cylinder engine also produces a huge amount torque with 80% of that torque available at 2500 RPM.

Betts, whose official title was senior vice president of quality, had also served in quality-control positions at ...

Ferrari has confirmed to Road & Track that the a production version of the Pininfarina Sergio concept is going into production. The thing is, only six will be built. And you’re too late.

Build, Paint, Repaint: The Assembly of Challenger Hellcat #0001 [Video]

Oct 27 2014 5:05pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Dodge has been deep in this whole promotional thing involving the one-last-go-’round Mötley Crüe and Gas Monkey guy Richard Rawlings, so it only makes sense that this build video of Challenger Hellcat VIN #001 was scored by the Crüe’s ’89 MTV staple, “Kickstart My Heart”. What’s more confusing is that after assembly and primer, a black Challenger rolls rolls out of the plant. Suddenly, a primed and masked car appears in a ...
