2019 MV Agusta UNICEF F3 800: Charity Build

If you blinked, you missed it. MV Agusta built this one-off F3 800 for UNICEF Italia and auctioned it off at the UNICEF Summer Gala in Porto Cervo on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia on August 9. This truly unique 2019 MV Agusta F3 800 sold for €100,000 to an unnamed MV Agusta collector, with the entire winning bid being donated to UNICEF Italia. The event was hosted by iconic Italian high-end fashion retailer LuisaViaRoma, with British singers Dame Shirley Bassey and Ellie Goulding performing.

2019 MV Agusta UNICEF F3 800 Side View “I am so happy that our special F3 800 for UNICEF Italia found such a generous buyer,” CEO of MV Agusta Timur Sardarov said. “All our motorcycles are handcrafted, and it takes an incredible amount of pride, passion, and experience to manufacture one. This special one is unique, and to know it will serve a unique cause makes every woman and man involved in its production even prouder. I wish to thank UNICEF Italia for giving us this opportunity to support them in defending vulnerable children.”
