Daft Punk’s Ferrari to be Featured in Charity Auction


Daft Punk’s obscure experimental film, Electroma, may have left you feeling confused and ripped off, but at least now you have the chance to own the same 1987 Ferrari 412 used in the movie. The French electronic music duo has decided to auction off the car for charity, with all proceeds going toward the Red Cross’ earthquake relief effort in Japan.

Although not the most famous prancing horse to ever grace the silver screen, this Ferrari 412 looks to be a clean example. Plus, we give it bonus points for having once been driven by two robotic DJs. Much like the film it starred in, this classic front-engine Ferrari takes a certain kind of person to appreciate it. But the 335 horsepower from its 4.9-liter V-12 is likely something we all can get down with.

Besides Daft Punk’s Ferrari, the series of online charity auctions will also feature many other items donated by artists on the EMI record label. EMI has even pledged to match the money raised by the auctions up to one million euros. The auction begins April 11 and ends April 21. So if you’re in the market for a Ferrari 412 and you’re a Daft Punk fan, here’s your opportunity.
