UPDATE: The auctioning of the first Ferrari F12berlinetta to be sold to a private buyer in America is now complete, with Ferrari managing to raise $1.5 million for victims of Hurricane Sandy: $1.125 million for the car itself and almost $400,000 in additional donations. More details here.

According to Automotive News and www.autoblog.com, superstorm Sandy has cost automakers 15,000 cars and may have damaged beyond repair up to 200,000 personal vehicles. And yesterday, Ferrari announced that on November 17 in Austin Texas, the company will auction the very first F12berlinetta to be sold to a private buyer in North America to raise funds for superstorm Sandy relief efforts.

On its American website, Ferrari says: "The auction is due to take place during a special Ferrari event to commemorate the return of Formula 1 racing to North America. Coming under the hammer will be the very first client F12berlinetta to be consigned in 2013. The car will be autographed by the Scuderia Ferrari drivers and will come with a special dedication plate."

How much would you be prepared to pay for a Ferrari F12berlinetta?

    Must admit I think the current crop of Ferraris are among the most exciting the company has ever produced.

    The storm certainly affected USA registrations. Fiat-Chrysler did well but had the lowest increase so far this year. Come and have a look at my latest analysis about it in my blog:
