The Ferrari F50 is one of our favourite supercars of the ’90s. Back then the Ferrari F50 was the closest you could get to a street-legal racecar in it’s purest form, enough reason to select it for our dream garage and share videos of this magnificent Ferrari. The Ferrari F50 was introduced in 1995 to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary in a limited number of only 349 pieces. The F50 is a two door, two seat convertible sports car with a removable hardtop. Thanks to the 4.7 litre V12 engine, that’s developed from the 3.5 litre V12 used in the 1992 Ferrari F92 Formula One car, takes the F50 from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,9 seconds and has a top speed of 325 km/h. Not many people know that the Ferrari F50 is actually 0,7 seconds slower from zero to 100 km/h then it’s predecessor; the Ferrari F40. After the last Ferrari F50 was produced in 1997 Ferrari didn’t produce any flagship supercars for 6 years until the birth of the Ferrari Enzo in 2003.
Only 349 cars were made, one fewer than Ferrari estimated they could sell. This was, in the words of Ferrari spokesman Antonio Ghini, because “Ferrari’s are a monument. They must be hard to find, so we will produce one car short of the market demand.” 10 years after the last F50 was produced in Maranello, Ferrari must be pleased since the F50’s hardly devaluated. There are quite a number of F50’s for sale at the moment with a very low mileage. Add that a couple of F50’s didn’t survive the past 10 years and you know exclusivity is secured!
