The rare car Ferrari Spider, which was only one of among the many cars sold in that auction, was originally owned by National Wholesale Company founder, Eddie Smith Jr., who noted that the proceeds of the sale will go to charity but did not mention the name of the organization.
“In my mind it’s sort of been imprisoned for those six years.” Smith was quoted at CNN Money, adding that he decided to sell the rare car because he want it to be seen and enjoyed, and that he was amazed with the reactions from the public when it was displayed at a recent event for Ferrari owners in Georgia.
