Lapo Elkann – grandson of Gianni Agnelli and founder of Garage Italia – has a unique taste in cars. Take his Ferrari GTC4Lusso and Abarth 595, which are being auctioned next week for charity.
Proceeds from the sale of the one-off “Azzurra” spec Ferrari and Fiat, which will be sold as a single lot, will go to the LAPS Foundation.
More specifically, to a project dedicated to the “recovery of youngsters with drug addiction problems” and kids “at risk of falling into criminal substrates”, as well as a programme “aimed at fighting digital addiction”.
The lot is expected to fetch between €375,000 and €750,000, and auction house Wannenes is waiving its fees so the entire winning bid goes to charity. The online auction takes place on July 16th.
Of course the two cars are pretty special and very, very blue. Just check out the Ferrari’s interior.

Lapo says they’re finished in his “favourite colours, Azzurro Lapo and Blue Navy Garage Italia,” and that he “personally took care of every customisation details, since I wanted them to become truly unique and iconic cars”.
