Luca’s Fezza for sale

Ferrari chief auctions off his 599 to help pay for rival F1 championship. Not really. It’s for charity

Luca di Montezemolo

Oh dear. Seems no one is immune from the recession, not even Ferrari's top brass. In an effort to scrape together a few quid, Luca di Montezemolo - the bloke in charge of the Prancing Horse - is auctioning off his 599.
OK, so it's all for charity. But we can't help thinking what his next motor will be? Maybe he's doing the sensible thing and downsizing, to an Abarth 500 or something. Or maybe he's after something more flashy to pootle around the Riveria - a California maybe?
Perhaps it just a charade. Maybe he really does need the cash. In which case he'll be selling the rest of his junk from the back of a Doblo van. Look out for the Montezemolo crockery at a car boot sale near you soon...
If you feel like giving the guy a break, make your way here and place a bid.  

Now share it...
