Hurricane cleanup efforts continue on the East Coast and the Red Cross is receiving some huge financial support from an unexpected source -- a small Italian car maker named Ferrari.

A Ferrari F12 Berlinetta -- the most powerful ride in the Ferrari clan -- was auctioned off over the weekend for an absurd $1.1 million. Bidding on the still unavailable in the US Berlinetta started at the car's base price of $315K and sold for four times as much to Larry Roth of Long Island, NY.

The $1.5 million dollars already donated to hurricane relief on the part of Ferrari shouldn't really come as a shock to anyone familiar with the company. Last year, the auto giant auctioned off a rare Ferrari 599XX Evo to help earthquake victims in their own country.

Congrats to Mr. Roth. Sadly he won't get to drive the car around much of Long Island until the Sandy cleanup is over.
