The F50 is a special model commemorating the 50th anniversary of Ferrari as a company. A limited edition car like the 288 GTO and F40, only 349 of these cars were built in 1995.
Its development concept was a Formula One car for the road. It brought to life the idea of Piero Ferrari (the second son of Ferrari's founder, Enzo Ferrari) to make a road car with an F1 engine.
The body designed by Pininfarina for this purpose is made of carbon, and contains beauty befitting a supercar. And because F1 cars are open cockpit, this became the first special model of Ferrari to be an open top car with a hard top.
The most F1-esque part of the F50 is its fundamental structure. The front suspension is mounted directly in the front of the carbon monocoque tub. Behind it is connected directly to the engine with bolts, which then connects to the gearbox. The rear suspension is then directly mounted on the gearbox. The car utilises the same powertrain frame structure used in F1 racing of its time, for the first time in a road going car.
The V12 engine is also directly from F1 racing. Based on the power unit for the 641, the F1 machine of 1990, development was performed to make it more suitable for road use, making modifications such as raising the displacement from 3.5L to 4.7L for ease of handling, and increasing the spacing between cylinders to improve durability. The transmission equipped is a 6 speed manual, with a top speed of 325 km/h and 0-100 km/h acceleration of 3.87 seconds. The car exceeded the performance of the F40 which had reigned supreme since its debut in 1987.
This car can be purchased in the Ferrari section of Brand Central for 1,900,000 Credits.
