A one-of-a-kind 812 Superfast Ferrari, offered to benefit Children Action

Your chance to own a one-of-a-kind 812 Superfast Ferrari

The supercar comes to auction on 15 October as part of an evening to benefit Children Action — a Swiss charitable foundation that supports projects aimed at helping children in need, both in Switzerland and abroad

On 15 October in Geneva, Christie’s will offer a one-of-a-kind, customised 812 Superfast Ferrari, produced by Scuderia Ferrari and offered to benefit Children Action. Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800hp, the 812 Superfast is the benchmark for mid-front-engined sports cars, delivering the kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive hallmark of Ferrari’s V12 heritage.

Scuderia Ferrari has chosen to present this iconic model in a unique configuration created in collaboration with the Tailor Made department, Ferrari’s exclusive personalisation programme. The car will come finished in Rosso F1, Ferrari’s signature Formula 1 red, with a tricolour strip inspired by the Italian flag and a white-backed race number painted on the bonnet recalling the SF71H, Ferrari’s 2018 race car.

The unique interior configuration features leather racing seats with SuperFabric inserts, and a yellow Prancing Horse stitched on the headrests

The chosen race number is 1, to celebrate the fact that the Scuderia Ferrari has won the most number of Formula 1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championship titles (31) in the history of F1. The Scuderia Ferrari shields on the wings and carbon-fibre trim will complete its sporty exterior.

The unique interior configuration will feature leather racing seats with black technical SuperFabric inserts; a yellow Prancing Horse stitched on the headrests; yellow seatbelts and a yellow rev counter. Carbon-fibre trim and a tricolour detail painted on the central bridge complete the interior.

The car will be Ferrari Classiche-certified and its provenance from the Tailor Made programme will be evidenced by the carbon-fibre logo on the sillkicks.

The winning bidder will receive the keys to the 812 Superfast in an exclusive ceremony inside the Monza circuit at the 2019 Italian Grand Prix, taking possession of the supercar in the presence of the whole Ferrari team. The V12’s engine will also come autographed by official Ferrari drivers.

Also offered on 15 October is a one-of-a-kind Patek Philippe created exclusively to benefit Children Action: the first and only titanium version of the Ref. 5524 Calatrava PilotTravel Time. Launched in 2015, the Ref. 5524 Calatrava Pilot Travel Time — featuring a second time zone with locally linked date display — reflects Patek Philippe’s tradition in aviators’ watches.

The exclusive Ref. 5524T-010 features a titanium case (a metal only rarely used for Patek Philippe timepieces) and a black dial. The sapphire-crystal case back exposes the self-winding calibre 324 S C FUS and bears the inscription ‘Children Action 2018’. The watch will be delivered in a sealed presentation box, with a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin.
