Ferrari regularly associates with associations by offering for sale some of its models in order to raise funds. Today, it is a new collaboration between Ferrari and the association "Save the Children" which is put forward, with the leader of the group Maroon 5, Adam Levine, and his wife Behati Prinsloo.
In 2017, Ferrari and the association "Save the Children" had already collaborated since a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta had already been auctioned as part of the "Leggenda e Passione" sale. This sale had brought in ten million dollars to the association and these funds had been intended the development of educational programs in the United States.
As stated above, singer Adam Levine is in a way the intermediary between Ferrari and the association. A great fan of the Maranello firm, his garage was rather well supplied since he saw, in particular, a 330 GTC from 1966, a 365 GTC from 1969, a 365 GTB / 4 Daytona from 1971, a 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso from 1963 as well as a 275 GTB / 2 from 1965, or even the most recent F12tdf.
In order to raise funds for this future auction, carried out in collaboration with the house RM Sotheby's, Ferrari will put up for sale a Roma, its last GT. For the record, under its hood we find a V8 3.9 twin-turbo 620 horsepower, installed in the front central position, and associated with an eight-speed robotic gearbox. The 0 to 100 km / h is announced in only 3.4 seconds and the top speed is greater than 300 km / h.
If the Ferrari Roma is sold in Europe slightly below the bar of 200,000 euros, the model that will be auctioned will be one of the first delivered in North America. Given the nature of the sale, its price should greatly exceed that of the model leaving the factory.
