LaFerrari

How would you like one of these in your driveway? Isn’t it a beautiful looking car and so practical also? Can’t you imagine pulling up to the local supermarket to do your weekly shopping? All you need is AUD $1.7 million dollars in your bank account. Actually, add the taxes and GST and you won’t get a lot of change from AUD $3 million. Oh, and I forgot to mention that you also have to already own 5 Ferraris before Ferrari Australia will even consider you as an owner.

Now for the statistics. It has a carbon fibre body and a V12 engine with an electric motor. Together they produce 718kw of power, with a top speed of 350 km/h. That makes this car more powerful and probably as fast as a Ferrari Formula 1 car! Now that’s some shopping car!

Seriously folks – how many people would even contemplate buying one of these vehicles if they had the money to buy one? I don’t know about you but I would find spending that amount of money on a luxury item a very large drag on my conscience!

La Philanthophy

I know not many people can afford to own this car but just imagine you could. What else could you do with the money? Maybe you could help someone such as a sponsor child through World Vision.

Let’s do the maths –

3 million divided by $6,000 (10 years World Vision sponsorship@ $600 per year, per child) = 500 children. That’s own one Ferrari or sponsor 500 children for 10 years to make their lives better – your choice!

And that’s just for the price of your new LaFerrari. Imagine what you could do for the price of the other 5 Ferraris you have to own before being considered to purchase the LaFerrari.

The world’s an interesting place – isn’t it !!
