The F50 was created to celebrate Ferrari’s 50th anniversary and developed with F1 technology.
These cars had the difficult task of succeeding the iconic F40. In contrast to the twin-turbo V8 of its predecessor, it uses a naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V12 derived from their 1990 F1 car. Like F1 cars, Ferrari developed a carbon fibre monocoque and the Pininfarina body was wind tunnel-tested and made of a combination of carbon fibre, kevlar and Nomex honeycomb. Despite all this technology it’s an iconic old-school analog car with a gated six-speed manual gearbox.
The car was unveiled at the 1995 Geneva Salon with 349 were going to be made, one less than they thought they could sell, a strategy to ensure that demand always exceeded supply.
This example is one of just 31 originally produced in the striking Giallo Modena colour. Originally part of the famed Matsuda Collection in Japan, it now forms part of the BINGO Collection. The car is Classiche certified and comes with almost all the original accessories (minus driving shoes). There are just over 13,000km on the odometer.
