The very first of Ferrari’s controversial new hatchback, 4WD FF model to arrive in Japan was auctioned off for charity at the Italian Embassy in Tokyo. The assembled dignitaries were probably excited to be able to get to Tokyo from their more radioactive homeland, and the car auction seems to have been a great success.
The FF itself was bought up by Masaharu Seno, an architect in Tokyo, and I am sure contributed the bulk of the proceeds of over $724,000. The money will be going to build a school for the children of Ishinomaki, one of the hardest hit towns in the March 11th disaster.
