Helping earthquake victims is cool.

Helping earthquake victims and taking home an ultra-rare supercar is even better.

Hand it to Google exec Benjamin Sloss, who threw down $1.78 million the other day for this eye-popping machine—a Ferrari 599XX Evo.

Sloss’s cash went into the coffers of Italy’s Emilia Romaga earthquake victims, who happen to live near the Ferrari factory in Maranello.

Sloss received the vehicle at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, where it was presented by Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo and Scuderia Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

Seeing as how Google shares recently topped $700, we’re guessing Sloss didn’t feel a thing…
