For the first time ever, Ferrari held its Finali Mondiali event in North America, and we were there to soak it all in. This event is a four-day celebration of everything Ferrari, but the main event is the world final championship for the Ferrari Challenge series drivers, who normally compete in European, American, and Asia Pacific regional series. While they were racing 458 Challenge EVO models, we also saw the debut of the 488 Challenge – which, needless to say, was stunning
. There were also demonstrations of past F1
cars, and a running of the incredible FXX Program vehicles, which simply looked (and sounded) amazing.
In addition, the last Ferrari LaFerrari built was auctioned
off to help victims of the Italian earthquakes, and predictably it raised a lot of money. That's great. In fact, it also set a record at a whopping $7 million
– the most for a car from this century, period. Probably didn't hurt things any that it was also a one-off with a special paint job.
