Released to celebrate Ferraris 50th Anniversary, the F50 promised a Formula 1 for the road experience.
The press releases were right, as the F50 was equipped with a detuned derivative of the 4.7 litre V12 that powered the Ferrari 641s of Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell from the 1990 Formula 1 World Championship. This engine, and a no compromise approach to the rest of the car meant the F50 delivered driving enjoyment on an unparalleled level.
After decades of being overshadowed by its stablemates, the F50 is now celebrated as one of the greatest cars to leave Maranello. With only 349 examples ever built, it is rarer than the F40, the Enzo, and the LaFerrari. Having had only one owner guarantees another level of exclusivity.
Australian delivered new from Lance Dixon Ferrari on November 1996. (The factory Ferrari authorised dealer.)
Previously owned by one extremely fastidious owner and was kept in a private collection since new.
Accompanying the car:
- Unworn F50 Tod’s racing shoes.
- Unused F50 hand tailored luggage to suit the car.
- Unused factory hardtop still in the unopened F50 box.
This F50 is a credit to its previous custodian, travelled a mere 2,775 miles with maintenance and care, absolute original paintwork and would possibly be one of the very best F50 available worldwide today.
The car has all of its original delivery books including service books and manuals plus the original second set of keys.
Inspection is an absolute must to view a totally original F50.
