Ferrari Gives "V12 LAF" number plate to The Henry Surtee's Foundation, to auction to raise funds.

Perfect private plate for LaFerrari
Ferrari North Europe is pleased to announce a very special auction to benefit the Henry Surtees Foundation, with the unique personalised registration “V12 LAF” going to the highest sealed bid submitted before the end of November. 
The personalised registration is obviously the perfect number plate for a LaFerrari, the Prancing Horse’s ultimate hypercar with a 963hp hybrid drivetrain which includes an 800hp V12 engine and an additional 163hp KERS hybrid system.

The Henry Surtees Foundation was named in honour of the son of 1964 Ferrari F1 World Champion, John Surtees OBE. Inspired by Henry, his experience, and in celebration of his life, the Foundation’s primary aim is to assist people with brain or physical injuries caused by accident to return to community living by the provision of support for equipment and facilities.
“We are truly honoured that Ferrari has chosen to donate the proceeds of this auction  to the Henry Surtees Foundation. The work we are doing is absolutely critical to help save the lives and provide emergency support for those who sustain serious head injuries and I know that Henry would have been very proud to hear of Ferrari’s continued association with the Surtees family name, more than 50 years after I drove for Il Commendatore,” commented John Surtees OBE.
Interested parties should submit a sealed bid in an envelope marked as follows:
“HSF Charity Auction”
Ferrari North Europe
